The eldo is a little dusty though. I just got her out of her winter sleep...
Thanks! The white license plates are from germany and the yellow from Holland. The 70 Eldo will get dark blue license plates later as I need to apply for classic plates. Driving the CTS at those speeds is indeed exhilarating and it even stays very comfortable.AmericanMuscle said:Hey 70eldo,
Just curious, what country in Europe are you in? I noticed your EU license plate, but can't see the country letter.
Also, saw your picture of your top speed. I have to say, you brought back memories of a trip I took to Germany in 1996 to visit a German friend. We rented a new (at the time) Porsche 911 with only 6K Kilometers on it and hit 260 Km/H = 162.5 MPH on the Autobahn. Road was virtually empty at the time, so I was able to keep up that speed for about 15 minutes! Gotta love those german highways! Simply exhilarating!
Happy Thanksgiving from the US!
We'll see what I can find for herTripleOught said:that eldo needs some 100 spoke 20's...i love it man...not a huge fan of the color, but dig the rustic style.
and cadiman, i'm with you...a 50's ride would be hella nice...
It has 500 cid (8.2 litres)! And it does indeed reach 130 as the needle goes well passed the 120 on the speedometer (120 is the last on the speedo). You might be right on the 18". I'll work something out.B Hoth said:Nice, 472 cubic inches - 400BHP, perfect running order should do 125-130 top speed. Might be scary with the brakes from that era. I like the idea of the spokes, but being a more regal ride that it is, 18" would look good with out being to blingey. Just my $.02. Enjoy it, as it must be real rare there.
I need to order most of the parts from the US. I found that some used parts dealers are ripping me off on prices and even charging me for unrealistic shipping prices... But I am with the Cadillac Club Netherlands as well. That helps.RobertCTS said:I love your Eldorado!! That's even rare here in the states. I know you have problems getting parts for your CTS so I imagine the Eldorado must really be a challenge!
