    ^Thats pretty damn cool.

    Wonder what the rear armrest looks like in the up position. Does it have the same general shape as stock one?

    Am I mistaken, I am by no means an expert on 93-96 Fleetwoods, but doesn't that rear seat cupholder slide out from the rear armrest?

    ^Never had a Cadillac like that and never had any reason to ride in the back of one (Have ridden in the backs of '93-'96 Brougham Hearses though), but I figured this too. Very much like what I have seen on similar cars from the era. In fact, I am pretty sure that my parents' '07 Ford Fusion may have still had that type of armrest/cupholder combo too.

    My pair of Expeditions are interesting... I don't use cupholders, but they have an unreasonable amount of cupholders for a car that seats only eight people. I guess they want to make sure that if you eat a lot of drive-thru food and don't have time to clean your car out, you still have eight cupholders that you can reach...from the driver's seat.

    It has an Urn-Holder though, which is just as good. Even better, in fact.



    Sorry, I just had to.
    That would be great for those big drinks you get at 7-Eleven.

    I've found other uses for both those and the traditional bier pins normally used for caskets. Honestly, am beginning to be unable to imagine life without them.

    Every car should have bier pin cupholders. I'd never have to worry about the cupholder being too big or small or too shallow/ tall again.

    I might be eccentric, but I didn't want anyone driving my car.
    Yeah....eccentric enough that he didn't want ANYONE, including himself, from driving his car. Like someone else asked above, what's the point?

    Also, I don't like the later Broughams near as much as the 80s models, but that is still a very nice example. Pretty sure you could get one nearly as nice, just with a few more miles, for at LEAST $10,000 less.

    I've always been baffled by my Broughams cupholders (or lack thereof). The little depressions in the glovebox...I guess you could use those while parked, but I need some way to transport my mug of coffee or I would be very cranky!

    Fortunately, I've a large nylon / whatever cupholder box thing. Picked it up from Walmart or Target for about $20 bucks. It's not the hard plastic kind - not gaudy at all. It is attached to nothing, sits in the center under the ash tray, holds three drinks, and has never flipped, even on that rare occasion when I've got the Whatasize drink for Whataburger. Ok...It flipped one time when I took a corner WAY too hard, but that's what I get for driving my Caddy like that. Fortunately all that was in it at the time was a cup of water. No probs.

    Bayou, if you have the 60/40 seats with the single armrest, it is only two screws to swap in the later Fleetwood/Roadmaster armrest that opens with cupholders. There are three different styles, in both cloth and leather.

    LMAO!
    I've been reading the comments here and it's funny how the main topic of discussion of this pristine, brand-new Cadillac is its cup holders! Lol!
