    Whats your Dream Cadillac Collection

    Ive had a few Cadillacs in my lifetime. Liked them all but I wish I would have never sold the 1979 Fleetwood I had, I loved that car.

    So Ive got the "fever" again, my goal or dream collection is a 79 Coupe, which has come true, another 79 Fleetwood, looking but no money yet and hard too find a nice one. 1990-92 Brougham in mint condition, may not be able to get, I have a 90 that will get painted after I finish painting my truck, and its a good car, but its not mint. . And "mabey a RWD Seville, thinking about one of those, not sure, if a deal comes along Ill get one even if its not clean, and see if I like them.

    Re: Whats your Dream Cadillac Collection

    I know I have posted to this type of thread before. I also know that my answers keep changing as I hang around here longer. I never had a 1987 Brougham on my list, and now I am so in love with the one I bought last year I can't imagine not having one.

    I have my #1 dream Cadillac and have to get it completed, my 74 Talisman.
    My 87 will be with me as long as I can keep it running and looking good.

    At some point I would like to add a convertible, I would love a 60-64 if a driver quality ever presented itself at a reasonable price. I love the 50's convertibles, but cost of them is above my means and pleasurable driving needs. I also might go Allante for the convertible with them at fire sale prices right now.

    I also know someday I will have to have a Series 75. They are just too cool not to experience owning one once in my life. Again, almost any year would be fine. 50's are dreamy, but pricey, early 60's are sleek and cool, and a bit less money. Love the idea of a 71-76 just because of shear mass. 70's and 80's much more reasonable and driver friendly would be cool too.

    I have been falling in love with the 71-73 Coupe Deville. I have been actively looking for one with a sunroof. (Secretly hoping I don't find one!) If a good one showed up at the right price I would find a way to have it though. Same goes for a 74-76 CDV with a sunroof.

    Once the Talisman is done I would like to find a slightly rough 71-76 to do a full on pimp-mobile on. I grew up dreaming of them and loved my original Talisman which had quite a few of the "period correct urban modifications"!

    I really want to preserve that part of the Cadillac history, because it had such a huge impact on me and my love of Cadillac. I know I am in the minority among collectors in that respect, but I view it as the Cadillac equivalent to the Model A and T hot rodder's some years ago. It took a long time for them to be accepted as a valid representation of the brand history. I believe the hobby is richer for their efforts to gain their place amid the straight restorations, and I feel someday Cadillac collectors will view the Pimp-mobiles the same way.

    I also somewhere along the way will probably want to have a 76-79 Seville, and a 79-85 Eldorado. I wouldn't pass on a nice hearse either.

    That's a cool post!.

    I had a 74 Coupe and a 76 Eldorado, nice cars, but seemed a little hard too park and if remember burn a gallon of fuel every 8 miles. Allente would be cool, Ive seen some super nice low mileage ones for less that 10k, Im talking real nice.

    The rate things are going Ill have to hoarse trade some stuff to get the cars I want, Im also thing that 4 or 5 cars might be real hard to take care of.

    Thanks Larry,
    I have always been rather manic in my car shopping. Where normal people decide what they want and shop for it, I have always decided it was time for a change and looked for a "new experience" in ownership. The only requirement being something I considered "fun" for whatever strange reason.
    I was also always blessed with less money than sense, so it has led to an interesting array of vehicles.
    A rather tenuous grasp of reality has many down-sides, but has been fun in terms of vehicle acquisition!

    Re: Whats your Dream Cadillac Collection

    My dream would be a pair of '70 Eldorados, one in San Mateo Red fireminst and the other a Nottingham Green firemist '70 Eldorado.
    Next would be '70 Deville convertibles, green, red, maybe firemist gold, all would have white tops and white interiors.
    Those would be weekend drivers, maybe garage ornaments if I may.
    For a daily driver a 2002 Eldorado, pearl white and I would have a customized interior in all pearl white leather.
    Now for a go to the dump and trips to the lumbar yard Caddy, I need a Cadillac flower car, in black naturally
    with bling 5 spoke alloys and maybe some Vogue rubber. I'm not fussy about year as long as it's all black, laid on the ground and has a cool set of pipes.
    Now I gotta get a building permit and add on to the garage to fit my dreams.

    I alaways really liked the looks of the 74-76 Fleetwoods, even before I could drive, Im alaways prone to change my mind and get one. Cars seem to be like girls, and I cant figure why I like eighter one, but somehow that's where all my money seems to wind up.

    Theres a beautiful 76 Fleetwood on Craigslist, Ill link in the stickey forumn. Unfortunately I do have limits, but if money were no object I would have listed a lot more cars including a big body Fleetwood, man those things are sweet.

    Re: Whats your Dream Cadillac Collection

    My true dream Cadillac collection would be every Cadillac ever made, but I don't think that's going to happen. And as much as I would love to have some V16s, a 41 Sixty Special, and a 57/58 Eldorado Brougham, I don't see those (among many others) ever being in my budget either. That being said, I think it would be cool to have an example of every Fleetwood 'suffix' out there.

    1994 Fleetwood Brougham (check!)
    1980-85 Fleetwood Brougham d'Elegance coupe
    1974 Fleetwood Talisman
    any pre-1971 Fleetwood Series Seventy Five
    1967 Fleetwood Eldorado
    1963 Fleetwood Sixty Special

    Then I'd have a CTS-V wagon as my daily driver and a Escalade EXT to tow my Fleetwoods around if necassary.

    I'm sure I could find room for some others too

    Re: Whats your Dream Cadillac Collection

    I have had 19 so far, some better but all were just because I cant get enough! When I was 11(1972) my cousin but a sweet 1966 Cream Coupe De Ville with black "gator" skin vinyl top with black leather interior, dial cruise control, and an am/fm seek radio. It began my love for the cars. My parents would not let me purchase it since I was 11 but could have, since I had the money. Man, I wanted that car, it rode like nothing I had ever been in, even though my dad was a Buick Electra Limited guy and owned new ones every 4 years from 1957 till they stopped making the Park's and he passed in 2001. Now my mother at 85 still drives a Lucerne. But I was, am and always will be a Caddy lover. Have owned two Series 75's,(a 70, black and a 76, white), three FWB, (2 94's, white, and taupe and a 95, lt driftwood) three Eldorado's (an almost perfect 67 grey with a black vinyl top, a 74 El Classico, red with a white top, with a hood and grill so heavy I could hardly lift it, and a 75, white) a 69 Coupe D,navy blue, a 70 Sedan D white with a black vinyl top, a 60 Sedan D all black, 2 Deville Base, 4.9's a 94, crimson, and a 95, shale, and a 99 Concours, black(the only NS that I ever had), a 1987 FWD Fleetwood d'Elegance(black with a black half top and red leather) with the notorious 4.1L(ran it to 140,000 and never once a problem), and a 1972 Fleetwood Brougham Sixty Special(black, with padded black vinyl top, and black leather) a 2006 CTS-V, crimson with light grey interior and a manual, and a 1967 Deville convertible. My dream cars yet to have are a 1974, or 75-76 Talisman, a 1976 Fleetwood Brougham d'Elegance, a 1959 Fleetwood Brougham, a 1960 Fleetwood Brougham, and maybe some day a 1957 Eldorado Brougham. Anyway, maybe someday.....Peace, Mark
