    UGH. I've said it before and I'll keep on saying it until I die; If you want a Continental, buy a Lincoln Continental. Those grill kits and that gaudy chrome trim are some of the worst things you can do to a Cadillac.

    I could not agree more, but to each their own I guess. The fortunate thing for us purists is that those changes are relatively easily undone, and I have a hunch that especially vintage Conti kits and grilles are probably pretty saleable. I know the awful Rolls Royce grilles for the 93-96 cars sell for $550, so I never shy away from looking at a car with one because I know I could put it on eBay for $400 and get the stock replacement for under $200.

    Re: Find a RWD Cad for sale? Have a RWD Cad to sell? Post it here!

    As a Cadillac enthusiast I agree with you. Sort of.....

    As someone who lived in a metropolitan area in the 70s and grew up seeing many a fine "Pimpmobile" just running around town, I can appreciate them as a classic too.
    Much like collectors of 30s and 40s cars add period correct visors or evaporative air conditioners to their cars, I feel it is acceptable to add period correct "pimping" to a 70s Cadillac.

    I think the hobby would suffer a great loss if all of those modifications were lost from our history. Same as if all Hot Rodded Model Ts were all restored to original.

    There are probably people on this forum, myself included, who had those outrageous cars influence their love for Cadillacs. I can't say for sure, I loved the Mark IV, so I had a predisposition toward large luxury cars. I can say if my first Talisman didn't have the "pimp" trimmings on it I would not have stopped to look at it and ultimately buy it. I wasn't looking at 4 doors. If it weren't for the cartoonish garb on it, I may be posting on a Lincoln forum right now.

    edit;(In proof reading this before posting, I can hear some of you out there thinking that sounds good!)

    I agree the cars have a beauty of their own and that the extra stuff does nothing to add to that. As a historically correct modification I enjoy seeing them, and would even own one someday. From that standpoint, what better car to "pimp" than a Talisman!

    That spare tire and landau bars would HAVE TO GO if I owned that car. I hate those with a passion. The big RR grill on the front, it kind of depends on the year/model of Cadillac. I personally love it on that 76 Fleetwood, as that car is already kind of vulgar. The hood ornament kind of adds to the vulgarity, but IMO its period correct for the hairy chested two buttons unbuttoned disco era.

    If the big grill and flying lady were on a more restrained, smaller 77 or newer car, I'd call it tacky. But the 76 was the last of the big, bad, IMO slightly cheesy Cadillacs.

    You make good points. I don't like the Conti kit or chrome grille myself and if I bought the car I'd sell them and return it to original, but I see how the add to nostalgia. On the AACA forums folks have the same discussion regarding curb feelers, chrome spotlights and those over-windshield sun visors on classics. Are they totally original to how the car left the factory? No of course not, but just as with today plenty of new cars have dealer installed options and for some it's a key part of the nostalgia. So I see where you're coming from. I'm not trying to belittle anyone's taste, but it just isn't my style. If it sheds any further light, I drink my coffee black and eat rolls without butter. I'm the purists' purist.

    1995 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham
    Never smoked in, has clean leather smell.
    On Airbag suspension(4 viair 380c compressors)2 working 2 not working. car will still lift, but it will take a while. Compressors can easily be replaced with stronger ones.
    Body is in good condition 7/10
    Interior is in great condition 9/10
    Has no speakers but will include head unit.
    New:
    brake lines
    2 calipers
    2 rear drums
    sway bar links
    Alternator
    Speed sensor
    Battery
    Recently bled brakes

    Paint: Maroon
    Interior Leather: Maroon
    Imitation Conv top: Black

    The car was sitting for 3 years, when I went to start it up it barely hesitated, new fluids and all.
    LT1 v8 Motor runs strong at 103,xxx Miles
    Inside of car is almost perfect, with normal wear on driver seat next to the adjustment switches, and one of the unlock/lock buttons pushed into the door, but I'm going to fix that sometime this week. Dashboard has a crack which doesn't affect anything, its just there and you wouldn't notice it unless you went out of your way for it.
    Car does not have AC because the compressor went bad a while back. I'm honest when it comes to these things because I don't intend on hiding things that I've noticed on the car.

    Outside of car has a few scratches and the paint has seen better days due to sun exposure. a couple of surface rust spots on the trunk/hood.
    Trunk does not close all the way because electric motor went bad, it still closes and latches and will not open by force unless using key or button in glove compartment. I might also fix this sometime during the week.
    Cloth on Imitation conv top is in good condition. some small scratches.
    Tires have a good amount of tread left. No missing Hubcaps.
    Selling because I have 2 other vehicles.

    The car is extremely comfortable and spacious, and the headliner is in perfect conditions as are the back seats and passenger seat.

    These things are gorgeous in red. Probably my favorite color after black.

    Even though I've already bought a new car, I can't help but continue to search and see what's out there. Here's a really clean looking Brougham in Connecticut. Got the rust spots on the fenders that I'd expect from being a daily driver in New England, but holy moly. The rest is gorgeous. The upholstery says it all.

    Wish it were here. It is taking every fiber of my being not to enter a bid. It's killing me just sitting there. By the time I ship it, it's no longer a good deal though. Too bad, would be a fun driver car for two grand.

    Shipping would be about $450-$500 from CT to WI.

    Too bad its an up north car. Although I must say that is REALLY clean for an up north car.

    What is that grey color called??? I personally love that dark grey metallic color, as it really pops with the chrome. If I were ordering it new, I'd go for the burgandy leather though. I know Cadillac offered this dark metallic grey along with a much lighter, non-metallic grey that looks god-awful, like the paint was flat when the car was new.

    Re: Find a RWD Cad for sale? Have a RWD Cad to sell? Post it here!

    I believe the color is "Academy Gray". I'm a fan as well. It offers the dark, reflective sheen of black, without showing off as many imperfections. I almost bought a different Brougham in that shade, myself. Only thing I don't like on that car is the "premiere" vinyl roof that covers that rearmost window like it does on the 90-92. throws something off. other than that, gorgeous.

    Nobody had bid on that car last I saw. I'm assuming it was finally sold for around the initial 2K starting bid. I actually ran across the same car on cars.com, and they were trying to get 5k for it there.

    I'm curious what those little black plastic thingies are on the front bumper on either side of the grill. Anyone know?

    Someone's got their head in the clouds. The only picture is blurry garbage that doesn't even show the whole car, and even if it was mint, not worth the starting bid.
