    Damn, that toro makes mine look nice. The fenders on that one don't even match! And that one has more surface rust than mine (I'd be scared to see what the underbody looks like/ what that paint is hiding)

    I dunno. We don't get rust here like you do there.

    Yeah? Tell that to my Talisman! I just bought replacement panels from a lifelong Wisconsin 76 to repair it.

    I assume the first one comes with the trailer and tow vehicle for the $3500.00?

    That car in Wisconsin must have been driven very, very little out there---definitely not in the snow.

    Trailer, tow vehicle and gas for the trip.

    Bringing this one up again, just because. 84 Coupe with an Olds 307 crate motor swapped in. Questionable additions in door-mounted LCDs and some kind of suspension modification (airbags or hydraulics, can't seem to recall), but the rest of this is so absolutely cherry it might be worth it for someone to de-modify it.

    The only red flag is that this car has been relisted a few times, possibly from subsequent buyers who maybe don't like it for some reason.

    The only good modification they did was the engine.....

    Posting a link to the craigslist ad for my Brougham. Severe frame rot, so trying to sell it for parts. Interior is very nice, red D'Elegance leather.

    It's funny, I put it up last night asking $500, and the torrent of calls and texts I got was too much. Mostly people low-balling me to try and scrap the thing, but I'd rather see it be a donor car for something. Raised the price to $750 to weed out the cheapskates, but if someone here wants it, the price is very negotiable.

    The body looks in decent shape. It is just underneath then? If you were closer, I would take on a project like that. A Junkyard rolling chassis and in the order of about a dozen or so bolts and she would be off and switched.

    Eh, the pictures hide a lot. The body has a lot of rot coming through from the inside. 24 New England winters are not a kind thing to a car. Several of the rear mounting bolt holes on the body are rotted away as well. It does look decent, considering, but in my 8 years with this car, I pampered the thing, so I certainly slowed its deterioration. Had I been wiser back then, I would have recognized how bad the rust was, but seeing as how I paid 1000 bucks, I made out like a bandit for my first car. The engine is tired and leaky, suspension in shot all around, transmission is finicky, doors are sagging. She's a bit of a mess, but I love her.

    Funny, since I got her up and running again after 5 months of driving my new Fleetwood, I've gone back to using the Brougham to put around town. Man, absence does make the heart grow fonder.

    I see. That is a shame. Poor Cadillac. Someone will find some use for her.

    Somebody out west could try their bid on this little number. Looks really nice, overall. If the price is right, a little TLC and this could be a showstopper.

    Dang, for $250, I would fly down and drive it back home. I'll watch it. Thanks.
