    Make that 3 Cadillacs in two weeks

    We stumbled on a 90 Fleetwood last night. I had seen it before, but dismissed it because the rear end was sort of crumpled in, but last night we decided to call the number anyway.Even if it's just a parts car for the DeVille. He only wants 500 bucks for it and it has 70K miles. Plus it runs, steers, etc. "Do you want it to demo" he says. I shrieked NO DEMO NO DEMO OH MY GOD NO DEMO! LOL. Then my five year old says "can't you drive it in the winter so Stella doesn't get dirty?" She's a genius. So, it looks like I have my winter beater. Since my BF does body and paint, we can fix it enough to drive, and she has been saved from the demolition derby. Incidentally, the reason the back end was crumpled is that a drunk hit the car while the owners daughter was driving it. Thank god she was in a Cadillac, because she is OK.

    Looks like we have ourselves a family of cadillacaholics WTG faith.
    Btw, if it is a fleetwood coupe, those are fairly hard to come by.

    It's a sedan. It's almost exactly like my sedan DeVille only it is black, has leather interior, and supposed to have fender skirts. They were ripped off in the accident I guess. I wonder if I could swap out the seats? IDK it might look funny, just an idea.

    If you swap just the seats, it will look funny (since you will have black seats in a grey interior car). If you swap some of the other interior parts across, it would look factory, but that would be pretty involved (factory 2 tones had seats, pillars, headliner, and dash top one color and dash bottom, front speaker grates if applicable, and all carpet (including on door panels) another color....thats if I remember correctly.)

    If you BF does body work it shouldn't be that hard to swap interiors between the two cars. The leather will stand up better to the kid's abuse, but her kids will be missing some really good stories!

    ^^^ A flaming Cadillac Valkyrie gathering the precious machines to the strains of Wagner. The Forums have seen nothing like this passion since the TP rebuilt his Seville!

    Well, David forgot to get me an anniversary gift. So.... He gave me the Fleetwood for my own. That's better than flowers and maybe better than a ring. At any rate, I've added it to my list of Cadillacs owned.
