I found this 1968 deville with 57,000 original miles about 3 weeks ago.I stole it for $3200. I am now in the process of installing an airbag suspension. Rear end is all done and the front should be done in a few days. I posted a pic of the car the day I bought it and a pic with it layed out. Anybody here have any pics of bagged cadillacs? I'm still debating if I should do billet 20's or go old school with whitewalls and hubcaps.

That Impala is sweet. My friend cleans out houses after they forclose. He found a 64 impala in a cleanout 3 weeks ago. I'm not sure exactly how it works but he is entitled to the vehicle if the family of the owner doesn't claim it within 30 days(the owner was an older guy who died). He'll know in about a week if it's his. The car is very solid but really needs a complete restoration. The registration is sitting in the glove compartment too. Lucky bastard.

Thanks for the heads up. I noticed that bolt on the rear drum 2 nights ago and was thinking it may get in the way. As far as the suspension, heres what i've got.... (4)2600 firestone bags, (8)1/2" gc extreme 450 valves, (2)viair 380 compressors, (2) 5 gallon tanks, 1/2" plumbing and dakota digital gauges.I just got done with all 4 bag brackets.tonight i will start wiring and running airline. the rear was easy to setup. i welded circle plates on the current lower spring brackets(had to do a but of grinding). i just made cups that bolt in for the top. the front is the same idea but you have to cut quite a bit out of the spring pocket so the bags don't rub. i'll know if it works this sunday. i'll be sure to post some pics.

I went through all the cadimages one day and found all the 60's caddys and saved them on my computer. which one is yours?the light blue car?(it's sitting on a driveway with another blue car next to it) do you have any specs on your rim size?i'm really swingin' towards the old school look but if i decide to go with 20's i'm trying to figure out what fits.thanks.

i bought a kit that included the following: (4) firestone 2600 bags, (8) gc extreme 450 1/2" valves, prewired 10 switchbox, 3 gauges, 1/2" airline,1/4" airline(for gauges),(2) 5 gallon tanks and (2) viair 380 compressors. i got the kit through a friend of mine at cost which was $1180 plus shipping. i bought all my fittings from suicidedoors.com which cost $140. i fabbed up my own brackets.suicidedoors.com sells a do it yourself bracket kit which is the best way to go. when i got my fittings from suicidedoors they came with a catalog. in the catalog they have a kit for $1130(if i remember correctly) and its basically the same thing i got but cheaper. their website doesn't show this kit but if you call them and ask i'm sure they'd take care of you. if you decide to bag your car and have any questions feel free to ask me. i just finished mine last night and its totally badass!
