    Possible new Cadillac to be Owned

    So it's been a loooooong time since I've posted here since I regrettably had to sell my 1987 Cadillac Brougham... which again I have regretted since doing so, but tonight I put a down payment down on a 1993 Cadillac Fleetwood with the Brougham package from a used dealer. It's a bit more than I'd like to spend and had to get some financing, but it only has 103K miles, elderly owned and in very good condition. I looked it over and test drove it tonight too. I will hear back tomorrow if their financing department can work a deal if I have to go that route.

    Things that I noticed there light surface rust on the underbody close to the doors, but only surface and no holes. I'm pretty sure I can deal with that to get it to stop spreading and a very-very light bump on the rear-passenger quarter panel; hardly noticeable and no puncture or chipping paint, so that isn't a deal breaker and may need a radiator flush, and one side of the tip of the wreath on the hood ornament has broken off, but aside from all that everything seemed fine.

    P.S.
    If any of you regular members remember me, I was in Kansas... update I'm now in southern Wisconsin.

    Get that car on a rack before you buy it!!! Northern cars are known for bad underside rust/ rot.

    Oh I know, pretty bad in Kansas as they use road salt like crazy too. I plan on checking it out more a final time before doing any final signing if they say the financing goes through.

    Financing for a 20yr old car makes me nervous, too.

    Yeah I know that too... I still have time to back out and loose nothing, but my time. Honestly I'm not getting my hopes up too high - as much as I like the car - for them to come back with something that can work out.

    I really like that exterior dark blue.
    A guy around here just picked up the exact same color package only with cloth seats instead of leather. I wonder if he'll see this thread.

    There was a triple blue for sale in Atlanta for the longest time. 90k. I believe it was down to 4200 last time I checked. It may have sold by now.

    LOL, *shrug*, 93 is close to 94 (at least on the calender)

    93 = LO5 vs 94 = LT1, more than just letters & numbers.
