    Hi... Just joined..

    Hi people... I have a 1980 coupe deville I think... Had it about twelve years and have never got round to getting it on the road.. It won a lot of shows before I got hold of it and its only done 17,000 miles... I start it every four or five months and because of the Scottish weather I'm sad to say its pretty much an 18ft plant pot.. I just keep waiting till I've got enough money to restore it properly before I use it.. Like most people when I've got the money my kids have always got a birthday or Christmas....Anyway I've tried for ages to find out exactly what model it is and have looked through loads of Cadillac pics and websites and cant find one... I've found a few that I thought were the same but it always seems that my rear window is a lot smaller.. I've spent the last two hours looking through pics on this site but just the same result.... I will take some photos of it tomorrow if someone could let me know where on this site to post them and maybe finally I'll know what model to buy parts for... Well if you've read all that and you can help then please reply...
    If you own one of the amazing cars I've seen on here then go easy on me for just letting it grow roots.....I had to take the front seats out because of all the grass growing on the carpets...

    Thanks

    "Grass growing on the carpets"? That puppy must need a LOT of work (including a weed wacker).

    You gotta understand that over in the U.K. they find a car door handle in a field and they say "Let's restore the car!"

    As opposed to here where we say "hmmm.....wonder how much it's worth in scrap?"

    Welcome. I look forward to seeing what you have. My guess with out seeing it would be that it is an after factory roof on it like what they did in the 70s pimpmobiles.
