    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I estimate on Monday my car will turn over to 00000 miles - 100k! :) I've owned this car for five years and it had 61k miles when I got it and 15k miles have been put on in the last year alone. How many miles do you have on your Cadillac(s)? :)
  2. Largest car show in FL this Sun - lots of RWD Cads!

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    January in Florida is paradise for car lovers. Lots of sunshine and temperatures usually in the low 70's. The last Sunday in January is even more special because that's when the largest car show in Florida happens right here in Sarasota. I will be there and will snap some shots of the cars (I...

  4. Salvage cads- Not for the weak of stomach

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Working at a car dealership gives me the luck to have use of a dealers license. Co-Part, a huge salvage car auction pool all over the US sells off most of the cars that get written off as a total loss to insurance companys. Well i always scan the Fleetwood Broughams. Some are super minor bumps...
  5. Some Overpriced/Nasty Looking Cads for Sale

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Are we in agreement? This classic car place has overpriced some poor examples of D body Cads. Hopefully these prices are negotiable, because I could get a better deal up here in Canada. Have read a few things about this dealer's rep, and it's sort of shady. Regardless, for your viewing pleasure...
  6. As Promised: Vid of '80 CDV Diesel and a Few of My Cads

    Well I'm back from my internetless Thanksgiving and I saw plenty of RWD Cadillacs out on the road and for sale. Folks must have been bringing them out for the occasion. ...That and I visited family on the South side of San Antonio where many folks are still driving them as beaters. I did have my...
  8. Pricing guidelines on older Cads.... HELP!!!

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I am a new poster and regular on this site.... I don't own a Cad now, but am actively looking for one in the "luxury" category, which by definition (to me) means an older car. My question is, what is a reliable guideline for pricing on these older Cads (older defined as 10 yrs or more)? Should...
  9. what do you know about DIESEL engins in Cads?

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Ok, I know they have a HORRIBLE reputation, and I see darn few, but I gotta say, on paper, the cad diesels ( olds) from 78 to 85 look great. The FLeetwoods get 19 around town and 29 on the road.. yes, I remember they were noisy, and smelly, and smoky.. but were they REALLY that bad? I knew a few...
  10. Find a RWD Cad for sale? Have a RWD Cad to sell? Post it here!

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Can make a sticky so people can post found RWD Cadillacs found so if someone is looking they can find it? This isn't always appropriate for the Classifieds, as the finder isn't the seller.

My main hobby is taking pictures of these gems for my collection, which is now quite large. I know you...
  12. New tire option for 80s Cads!!!

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    While running errands today, I spotted a mint 80s Delta 88, and it had the correct wide style whitewalls on it. I remarked on it to my wife, and she mde me turn around to take a look. They weren't original tires, they were a local (Canadian Tire) rebrand that isn't sold anymore. Besides, the...
  13. Found some old Cads in an impound lot.

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    While driving around working, I noticed an old early 80's Buick at the front of an impound lot in Newark. I pulled in and asked if these cars are being held or are they being sold. The guy told me each car has its own situation but feel free to look around and see if I liked anything. I found...
