    If you can find a burgundy interior in good shape it might make a good flipper. Then take the cash and get one you really want.

    I've found shipping for the triple black in MI. Going to deal tomorrow

    I'm actually looking at a '76 as a potential flipper. That could be a fun early spring project.

    Good luck on the MI car! That thing is stunning and has the perfect color combo.

    Awesome! I wanna see pics on the car I missed out on. I'm glad I found the one that I did, but part of me was upset I wasn't going on my road trip anymore.

    Well, this one sold for just under $5K. The interior is quire rough compared to the two Fleetwoods I've bought over the years.

    I still think the market for these is tighter than it was in years past. Knowing that finding this now 16+ year old car in good condition (without modification) is rare and therefore leading some to pay a little more than book value.

    Re: Looking for opinions - 1996 Cadillac Fleetwood

    Did you notice the other car in Lebanon, Ohio, also on ebay? It is only $2000, white/white top and blue interior. The description is much more complete, and appears to be a well cared for car. It has had much of the normal service a 20 year old car needs, and with 135,000 miles, still has years of life left. I have a 93 Fleetwood, and unless you plan on drag racing it, don't let anyone tell you that they are slow or dogs. I also have a 96 Roady wagon, so I know first hand about the difference between the two engines. That color combination, along with the price and newer tires sounds like a winner to me. What part of Pittsburgh are you from? Do you ever go to Caste Village on Sunday nights for the car show? Good luck on your search.

    Good point, after all the L05 is the best thing ever in the 90-92 Broughams. I see the car you mention on Craigslist. I like it and I especially like the price. Some part of me wants to drop an LS7 in it. I am theoretically looking at one of these as a second car/highway driver but a resto-mod type sleeper drag racer could be fun too. Hmm. Thanks for the tip on this car!

    Anyway, I'm out 28 in Lower Burrell. I've never been to Caste Village but I googled and it looks like a great time. Have you ever been to any of the Pittsburgh Cars N Coffee events? They used to meet at the Starbucks in Robinson, looking at moving to Cranberry this year. There is a little of everything but a surprising proportion of exotics.

    I just saw this one on Craigslist. It's got a little bit too much going on with the emblems and interior but body looks good.

    I've never been to the cars and coffee events, but if you move to the Robinson area, the Quaker Steak and Lube is again hosting a Sunday night show during the summer months. I live closer to that show, and it is hard to pass up their wings and a couple of cold beers on a hot summer Sunday night.

    That thing looks like it's made up of little bits of other cars but boy is it shiny!

    The body looks nice, but it looks like it has bullethole stickers on it? And the emblems are a bit overkill. The interior is odd too....red/ black 2 tone? (Needed to change over a few more parts to make it look nice/ proper)

    Thanks for the tip! Sounds like a good time, I should get some friends together and head down there on a nice summer evening.

    It's an aftermarket cloth top, the armrest is from a red interior car, it's a non-Brougham Fleetwood with Brougham chrome wheels...

    Yup
    It also has a red dash top and red A pillars (wonder what color the headliner is).

    The Brougham style chrome wheels were a factory option on the "non-Brougham Fleetwood" in 1993-96.
