    Time to get serious--'96 Fleetwood

    I've been saying since January that October would be my time to trade.

    Well, it's here.

    And there's a '96 Fleetwood at a Caddy dealership in Memphis.

    Black/Black/Black. I just talked to the internet sales manager. It was driven by a little old lady whose husband just died, so she bought a new DeVille. Most, if not all service records are from this dealership.

    59,000 miles. Supposedly very clean, great condition, yada, yada, yada.

    I don't think I should pay more than $12K for it. Any ideas, comments, or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Getting ready for the MOB, eh Elvis!? 12 U.S. isn't bad, I was offered 17 U.S. for mine in the spring. Didn't see your pic though, took forever and no patience.

    Copy and paste this into a new window to see the picture...I don't think that website allows pics to be posted as links from other sites.

    If you didn't JUMP on a 17K offer on a '91 Fleetwood, you're friggin' NUTS! The car's not worth HALF that. Hell, I'd jump on a 17K offer for my car.

    If I get it, it could be my little tribute to Johnny Cash. Tony Soprano drives a Denali, I think.

    I already have a Tennessee "1-ELVIS" license plate I bought at the airport several years ago. But something tells me the real Elvis would've had a white caddy.

    Which reminds me of a funny story...

    A couple years ago, I actually SAW ELVIS driving down Union Avenue in Memphis. He was driving a beautiful white '99 DeVille. He'd speed up, I'd catch up with him, he'd slow down, so I slowed down too. Finally, he just looked over at me and waved, then turned off.

    I didn't realize that it was "Death Week". That's the week in August when tens of thousands of Elvis faithful flock to Memphis (as if it were Mecca) to pay their respects to the King. This bozo was just a really good impersonator.

    I want it too--it's absolutely gorgeous!!!! Our original intentions were to buy a black one, but all three black '93s we looked at ranged from needing work to absolutely disgusting. I just happened to stumble upon our immaculate white Brougham with very rare red leather and the lowest miles of any we had looked at, and we bought it on the spot. No, it doesn't have the LT1 and no, it isn't mean mobster black, but I love it the most of any car we've ever had.

    I still would love to have a black one, but our black Avalanche is quite enough as is to keep in shape. The white Fleetwood is probably the easiest car to clean we have right now, except for the all-white, full vinyl roof. Sometimes it likes to be a little difficult to keep spotless. Otherwise, the car is gorgeous.

    Anyway, I love that black one and I'd jump on it if I were you!!!

    Just take it. It's a great, big, beautiful Cadillac with a low-maintenance expense. How could you pass it up? Wanna trade? I'd rather have black.

    I know, I am thinking twice about it, thing is, in the spring I just got it so I still wanted to enjoy it. But what can I replace it with, a Neon??! I would take it now though!
