    An 86 Brougham painted with Rustoleum paint to look like the General Lee, with open exhaust, no radio, no hubcaps, and vinyl roof ripped off. For only 2k.

    Someone is either under the influence of drugs, has mental issues, or a combination of both; that's what's going on there, lol.

    Exactly, why it hasn't sold yet is beyond me

    It's only 40 miles from me. I may have to go, after a few beers, of course, just to see the owner.

    THIS is a proper Ratillac Brougham. Just not with those ugly-ass wheels. Neds some plain, flat black steel rims, like in the bottom photos. I'd drive this thing.

    The owner deserves that.
    The car deserves (deserved) far better treatment.

    I hate to say it, but I agree. After all my bitchin' about flatting out Cadillacs, I sort of dig that car. I could see the same on a hearse too. Guess I'll have some crow to eat from satin and flat guys!

    (I blame how great the Roowagon looks for my change of heart. CURSE YOU Roo!)

    To be politically correct, I don't feel "Latino" enough to drive that car as it sits. Get a shiny black paint job and some 15" whitewall tires and we'll talk.

    I love that.

    Bag it. Scuff/brush all the chrome trim. Drive it everywhere. Only improvement I'd make is some 17" steel wheels and spider caps (also brushed). Want.

    EDIT: for reference, before everyone shits bricks (I know you guys will anyway), this is chrome that has been brushed with literally nothing more than WD40 and a green scotchbrite pad



    In hindsight... I should have done my rocker chrome like this.

    In fact.... I might have to go get some spare Caprice rocker trim now.....


    Dave - I saw that.

    Re: Any takers on this beauty?

    I emailed our joker with the Gen Lee Deville:

    ME- Hi. Some questions about the car.
    1. Trans OK?
    2. AC work?
    3. Interior decent?
    4. Are the doors welded shut?
    5. Why not replace the blown fuse?
    6. Does it have a Dixie horn?
    Thanx.

    HIM- interior israt like. no headliner, driver seat is ripped up. the fuse is hard to get at and I usually forget. no Dixie horn. like I said its a close to complete project. the drivers door can only b opened from the inside but both doors work. if you are interested in the car ill take 1700

    ME- Do you keep a few hundred pounds of ballast in the trunk for jumps?
    What are you under the influence of?
    Thanx.

    HIM- I don't jump it. I use it as a daily driver that's it.


    So he's down to $1700, refused to answer what he's under the influence of, doesn't jump the car and doesn't know when somebody is having fun with him.
    I don't know if I'll be able to call him without giggling like a little schoolgirl & I'll only go if there are some decent cars to look at in the area.

    Re: Any takers on this beauty?

    I feel it needs the chrome trim to remain chrome. The flat black is acceptable, but I am not big on those wheels or the tinted windows. That body style (Hell, nearly EVERY Cadillac body style) just looks bad with tints, in my opinion.

    Re: Any takers on this beauty?

    I love the satin chrome look and think it would really rock on a satin black Cadillac. (Or Roomobile!)


    Who am I anymore?
    I think I need to step away from the forum for a while.
    I have agreed with Drew twice in the last week, I am admiring ATS' and CTS', now I am considering a satin black on a Cadillac!
    Either I am not well, or I've "drunk the Koolaide"......
