    $39,000!!!! For a 91 SEC!!!

    For about $10,000 more you can get a current body style CL.

    Back to the 80's, I always thought these were really cool looking. Too bad that all of them had JUNK engines in them, and they aren't easy to swap like the RWD cars.


    To keep Roo happy and stay on topic, more vintage Benz!!!

    I second the Mark VII LSC. Truly one of the "forgotten gems" of the '80s. I was going to mention that but Aron beat me to it. I've driven a few 1988 models and was always impressed with the car overall, except that damn AOD transmission and it's absolute desire NOT to downshift at the right time.

    EDIT: Aron beat me too it again. The '80-85 Cadillac Seville was Cadillac's only great car from that era that wasn't introduced in the '70s. (Yes, I know it was probably first sold in the summer of '79, but as a 1980 model!) I love it because it stands out and looks unlike anything else (except the cars mentioned below and the old Rolls Royces that Bill Mitchell used as a target)

    People love to shit all over those, but they started a mini trend in terms of having the slantback rear end. The '81 Imperial and '82 Continental followed suit and sold well into the mid '80s.

    Trouble is, it's over when she sings.

    Those boxy Benzes do absolutely nothing for me. Except this:

    They were definitely Cadillacs. Love 'em or hate 'em. They were plush, drove reasonably well and I personally liked the styling. Then again I like the styling of a Crosstour so ..................... . In '90 or so a good friend of mine had one. I wanna say it was an '84 model but am not 100% on that (did they still have the slanted back in '84?). It was 2 tone green with green interior, absolutely horrid color combo but it was reliable even with the 4.1. His dad bought that car new and by that time they left it at their vacation home in Florida. I kinda liked it.
