Have lots of Metal parts and few if any plastic parts. autoclose trunk would be nice and any other things Cadillac owners have enjoyed. I hope someone at Cadillac is listening.
    The model was said to be taken into production by Lutz. His 75% scale Sixteen... It would perfectly fit the Eldorado as the Flagship of Cadillac. Back to glory I would say!

    I think the T in ETC will vanish then, if in this naming concept. I think it could still be called Eldorado. Just like Escalade will not be abbreviated.

    My first Cadillac was a 1997 Eldorado ETC. Now that they are no longer available I buy DTS's (performance level) which actually is a DTS at least.

    Calling the normal poor handling DeVille with a canvas top and fender skirts a DTS is an insult to the DTS.

    And quit putting the gas filler on the passenger side of all new cars. The right side is what I call the commie car side. Most cars manufactured by former WWII enemies put the filler on the right side.

    Why ruin a quarter-panel when behind the license plate works great!

    Please bring the Eldo Back! It would burst my bubble if it looks like a relative of the CTS. The XLR was suppose to take the place of the Eldorado? F-THAT! I'll take an Eldorado over an XLR anyday!

    The price of the XLR puts it out of the range that was targeted by Eldorado buyers. Although they may have wanted the XLR to take its place, financially, that is impossible because of the current XLR pricing.

    Re: Bring back the Eldorado!!!

    I was very upset myself that the Eldorado had been scrapped for the current line that replaced it. I have a 93' touring coupe now with the 1st gen computer and it is awsome. I also owned a 01' with the 3rd gen computer and noticed a big difference in the computers. The 3rd gen computer didn't have near the pickup or torque of the 1st gen. and I felt with each new gen. they were slowy deteriorating the quality of the Eldarado. So I started to look at other types of cars too but, decided to restore my 93' instead. I'll buy my wife a BWM some other brand when it's time for another new vehicle.

    We think alike, there, Brian! I like where they have our fuel filler! Never have to think which side to pull next to at the pumps!

    Re: Bring back the Eldorado!!!

    yeah!!!!!!! bring back the Eldorado name-plate.and build a DOHC V12 stuffed under the hood with classic 67 Eldorado tail-fins,and classic styling with hide-away headlights.that's what Cadillac should build.The XLR is a Corvette with Cadillac inspired design and NorthStar power.the Eldorado outlasted the Lincoln Mark VIII,Toronado,and Riviera.It was still a desired car.I'm with you all,Cadillac should bring back the Eldorado.

    Re: Bring back the Eldorado!!!

    I was considering a last-year Eldo, but the bank wouldn't finance a used one, so I bought a new GTO. I love Cadillac, but I had to have a V-8 coupe and Caddy couldn't deliver for under 40k.

    I would have bought an Eldo - I promise. I fell in love with my buddy's '70 that had cutom plates: "LDO ROD".
