    Yeah, I told him about CF but he's what you might call pre-internet mentality. He's a cool guy in his 60s that wears a black cowboy hat. He also has a white diamond 1994 Deville and he just sold his mint condition white 1989 Lincoln Town Car.

    I'm actually thinking of buying the CDV off him, he said he'd sell it for $8000. It's always been garaged and covered. I might sell my white Coupe for it.


    And here's his old Town Car. Right after he sold it the new owner blew the engine up. Then had it crushed. R.I.P old Lincoln.

    While we're on the subject of friend's Cadillacs, here's another guy's 1976 Coupe. He just sold it for a little Benz convertible.






    That's the original interior by the way, but the exterior is a repaint. 75,000 mi.

    Those were really nice cars too. Suuuuuper plush and suuuper comfy, much more plush and ostentatious IMO than the similar Broughams. After my accident in the '92 in December of '05, I was thinking if the car was totaled, I'd pick up a real nice late '80s Town Car because they were so cheap (you could find a lot of excellent, low mileage examples for well under $3000) , so reliable, were a nice mixture of the '70s Lincolns interior and exterior design and the more modern Lincolns ride/handling plus they were smaller and easier to manuver and better on gas, and they had all of the features I craved and were ALL STEEL! That was a big issue for me after I saw how my plastic fenders gave way in that impact. But then again, the steel would have been damaged heavily too.

    I ain't big on red leather, but that shade is to die for, especially with the black exterior!

    That's the red I was refering to. Seeing that interior really brings back memories.
    P.S: I'm a big fan of the 80-89 Town Cars too. I've been looking for a clean one to add to my collection. My father had an 83 and an 87 brand new back in the day. I wish I had bought his 87 when he sold it. Black on black with the ragtop and wire wheels. When it was new it turned heads all over the place.

    wheelman, you need to make a trip down here! today alone I saw six white '80s Town Cars for sale, all in good shape. And rust free. In fact, I know of a black on black one with a cloth top and wires that's for sale too. It's not in the best condition, but not a junker by any means.

    i don't have much reliable info about the vehicle. i bought it this past december with 180,000 miles. it had been repainted a few years ago by MAACO. the guy i bought it from said MAACO used the vin number to match the paint to original. the paint you see in that pic is black on tan, but the tan color sometimes look olive. it's pretty cool and people are always complementing the colors. but, once you get within 5 feet you can see many imperfections. the roof looks like it had a vinyl top on it, but was removed. the previous owner had maaco paint over rust. but you can't really tell from afar.

    fast forward to this month, someone hit the driver's side door and caused approx. $1,000 in damage. the first thing the body shop i had it repaired at told me it wasn't original, it was probably just a bunch of pigment maaco had lying around mixed together and they wouldn't be able to match it perfectly. i got the car back a week ago and the paint they sprayed is better quality, but it's lighter and doesn't have the olive tint to it. i'm not exactly in love with the color blend but they told me the truth up front so i'm satisfied.

    thanks for the compliments, i'm amazed every time someone comments my beater cadillac. i just have to keep them at least 5 feet away.

    Okay, so I finally got some pictures of my Phaeton after the polishing, their not the best pics, but their something. The sides look great, but the top surfaces are still a little dull because they take on more sun I guess.

    85 Fleetwood Brougham after a fresh wash. This was already a year ago, I need to take some new pics. I just buffed and waxed it and tinted the windows. Also I'll find some pics of it next to my dad's white '82 Coupe De Ville

    Re: Post a pic of your RWD Caddy!

    Chad,

    I'm planing on the Phaeton because I'd love to take a road trip in it. Second choice is the '90. I don't want to put the miles on the '83. Plus the HT4100 isn't exactly the ultimate thrill on the highway...


    MaineWater, as stated about half an inch up, it's a 1983. 49,000 original miles.

    Ben, about a half-hour of wetsanding and that paint would shine like brand new! Those pics are stellar, can't wait to see it in May.
