Whatever yellow it is, it looks great and I 'm sure you will have many enjoyable drives in her!
    The Color was called Yellow Beige, I believe. The original photos were very overexposed, or taken in full noon sun. It is no where near as light as it shows there.

    Very nice Dave, I'm a little jealous. Your '74 Talisman has a much younger, smaller sister (daughter?) to play with.

    I've been looking at prices and I can get into a clean 87-92 Brougham for less than $5,000. Which is surprisingly low given the desirability of them. Heck, the '90s era Town Cars are selling for higher prices.

    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 was lucky to get it. I am loving having a big Caddy to drive. I have the forum to thank for it.

    Sally and Guido will serve me well for my Cadillac addiction for now. After a few minor tweaks I will have a great driver and a big project. When the Talisman frustrates me, I can take a "blow out" drive and remind myself of the end result of my efforts.

    Hopefully you will get a chance to check it out in a future get together Chad! I would love to come up and see some of you twin cities guys.

    The Cadillac Brougham of that era is the quintessential Cadillac to me. It is THE one I've always wanted and have not bought yet.
