    Almost home. So far so good! Even the volume and tuning knobs have retained their textured factory finish! Can't get over how mint this car is.

    That Seville would look great with a "Perot '92" bumper sticker!

    Yeah. You need to keep it. So very very badly. How does it ride after all these years?

    Re: Will the 4th generation Sevilles become collectible soon?

    Back in 2003 when we were looking for a 4th generation Seville for my wife, I drove a really nice mint 1992 Seville STS. It was a nice car, but truthfully the improvements in rear suspension and the Northstar drive train made a big improvement in the way these Sevilles drove. And later improvements to the suspension to the steering and suspension as in 1995 STS were an improvement over the '93 STS that my wife had gotten. Of all the fourth and fifth generation Sevilles I have driven I still prefer the 1995 over the others. The 1995's retain all the purity of the interior and exterior styling of the '92 Seville STS, but with very definite refinement of the mechanical attributes.

    Agreed, orconn.

    Biggest advantage I found with my 95 STS is that it drove like a scalded cat. Definitely the fastest of the 4 Northstar powered STS' I have owned. The interior was downscale compared to the 98 and newer cars, and the climate controls were strangely buried behind the steering wheel.
    Still, I liked having real glass headlights, a trunk pulldown motor, a proper crest on the trunk, and loved those huge chrome cookie cutter wheels.

    This is the only pic I have left of my 95 STS ... I've never seen another with black leather interior.

    I remember when my folks ALMOST bought a brand new 93 STS in white pearl. I remember going on the test drive with them and couldn't get over how amazing that car was. They were going to trade their 92 Miata for it. Sadly they ended up passing. But, wow was it nice!

    My wife's '93 was white pearl, and when the car was 14 years old we had it professionally detailed. The cars was in very nice shape, but we couldn't believe how beautifully its' paint returned to almost new appearance. People kept complementing her on her "new" car!

    Superb. Body motions aren't as well-controlled as later Sevilles with CVRSS but that's one less thing to worry about. Steering is reasonably precise and decently weighted for a large car and while there's a bit of float, it never feels out of control. It feels secure around ramps and curves though that impression is enhanced by the better-bolstered seats compared to Gen 5.

    I drove a pearl white over tan '94 STS once, about 7 years ago. I did a WOT at 60 mph and was thrown back into my seat way harder than I expected. If memory serves, the Marauder wasn't as quick as this STS was, at least from a 60 mph WOT. I do remember this 1994 as having a very nice, crisp & muscular sounding exhaust. It was unusually aggressive for a Cadillac and I remember reading that Cadillac dialed that back in 1995 or 1996.

    Yea, I was only about 7-8 when my parents looked at the 93, and I still remember my mom asking my step dad to stomp on it to see how the power felt while we were on some back road. And I still remember the feel of that engine pulling, and as you said, just how good that exhaust sounded.

    No doubt about the1993 Seville STS felt and sounded "sportier" than my 1995. But inspite of the '93's theatrics the 1995 was quicker and had better steering feel .... and felt more refined.

    That's what I like about my 96 compared to the old man's old 99 Concours. She's a little growlier under load

    Re: Will the 4th generation Sevilles become collectible soon?

    Any thoughts on these old girls a year later?

    I agree with most of what has been said about the 4th series Seville STS's, but I don't agree that that interiordesign and materials seem better on the 5th series cars. Having both series Sevilles and comparing them side by side, I definitely feel that the 5th series' interior looks and feels cheaper and certainly less well put together than the 4th series cars. The seats in the 5th series cars are just not nearly as supportive and comfortable as the fourth series cars. I quess the dash and HVAC control set up on the 4th series cars doesn't work for everyone, but for me it is the best control set up I have ever had in a car.
