    I do like the way the older Cadillacs look! As an instance, I love the design of my STS. But I need to admit that performance and handling wise, I prefer the newer models.

    I love the interiors of the 80s fleetwood broughams, the beautiful leather, the real chrome accents mixes in with the wood trim. And their over all classy styling.

    I also have always loves the first gen STS that had the Northstar. Great looking car.

    But I think I've gotta go with newer. I LOVE the styling of my 05 rear drive STS. Plus it's driving characteristics. Much firmer in the bends. More controlled. Just more pleasure to drive IMO. .

    Most would say that the 92-03 Sevilles were some of the prettiest and most comfortable luxury sedans ever built. But as sport sedans, they were weak compared to BMW. Meanwhile, Lexus was producing luxury sedans with higher quality. MB was on a steady decline back then.

    Before 1992, not much from Cadillac appealed to me. The 80s cars were mostly terrible, the early 90s stuff was decent, and the 70s were a mixed bag depending on which model and which half of the decade. I know too little about Cadillacs before 1970 except to say that in the Depression era, the brand was among the world's absolute best, better than Pierce-Arrow, Peerless, or Lincoln, and arguably up there with Duesenberg and Packard.

    I'd go for old gen. I love my fleetwood brougham. The 77-79 deville/fleetwood, and the 80-89 RWD deville/ fleetwood are timeless designs that are unmistakably cadillac. The same can be said for the 75-79 seville and 79-85 eldorado. When you see them in stock form, they ooze class, and get more props than any new cadillac, BMW, mercedes, etc will. Also, don't forget the 67-79 eldorado. It is an automotive design masterpiece.

    Old school for me. Nothing like the style, presence and power of the old school yachts. Up until the mid '90s, Cadillac had unique and gorgeous cars in every generation that were objects of desire. Back when owning a Cadillac truly meant something. Back before the import brands had come in and become as desirable (or more so) than Cadillac. In the '80s, Cadillac started getting outpaced by the German brands and in the '90s, it was the Germans and the Japanese brands. Cadillac is really becoming world leader again, but the cars are so much different than what they used to be, but so are the demands.

    Current:
    1992 Lincoln Town Car Cartier Edition (5/14- ?)
    2014 Honda Accord LX MTX Sedan (1/14 -?)

    Past:
    1995 Buick Roadmaster Limited (4/04-12/04)
    1992 Cadillac Sedan deVille (12/04-9/07)
    1999 Mercedes Benz S320 (8/07-7/09)
    2000 Buick Regal GS (7/09-4/12)
    2003 Mercury Marauder (4/12-10/13)
    1991 Buick LeSabre Custom Sedan (9/12-6/13)
    2013 Honda Accord LX Sedan (6/13-1/14)

    I always thought my STS was pretty sporty... until I got the E46. For a car as large as the Seville and being FWD it handled decently but those ads back in the late 90's didn't fool anybody; they couldn't keep up with the BMW's in the corners and in comparison felt large and unwieldy. The quality in the 5th Gens was just terrible in my experience though the technology was good at the time. It's unfortunate these cars were so unreliable because it kills a large used car market for people like me but I surely don't want to deal with a HG and or suspension issue.

    ^^^ I think you are confusing "expensive to maintain" with "unreliable." I don't think, from my experience, that Sevilles are any more , or even, as extensive to maintain in tip top condition than any other ten to eighteen year old luxury car.

    But I will agree that if I were a young guy of your age, Ryan, I too would prefer a 3 series BMW!

    I agree with that. Even a Lexus LS400 after 150k+ and 10-15 years will develop minor (but perhaps costly) oil leaks and small electrical issues.

    My '01 STS cost about 16 cents per mile, cheaper than what my Infiniti Q45s cost, though both Qs did have more miles when I got them. In the end, assuming average annual mileage, my ownership of a 2001 STS came out to $1900 per year, cheaper than most of the luxury cars I've owned. Bear in mind also that I didn't have payments or interest.

    I sold the car because that gray interior was miserably bland and because I wanted to use the cash to pay for some business expenses. I also thought I was going to be moving to Michigan after getting some calls from recruiters in Detroit.

    The RWD Eldos are timeless and great investments that continue to appreciate. The RWD 4 door. 62's, SDV's and Broughams are appreciating. I will be long gone before any of the current lineup will be any more then just a used car. I go with pre 77 old school.

    There's just something about those mid 90's Sevilles that get me. They kind of remind me of lipstick or a nice high heel. Almost feminine, but the kind of femininity meant to attract the male eye. Performance-wise, I'm assuming that cadillac has stepped it up a bit, and there are some real eye catchers as well. I'm just not a fan of those weird Ford focus looking models.
