Here's my introductory post. Thanks to all of you guys from whom I've gathered plenty of useful info for some time now. I have had Cadillacs for many years as hobby cars and now they are beginning to pile up. Not that it is a bad thing.
Fortunately my wife is a full enabler of my hobbies and she claims ownership of the fleet. Makes it easy.

In our stable we have a '66 Deville convertible, '76 Coupe Deville, '84 Fleetwood Brougham, and a '77 Ford Country Squire. I've posted pics of those in my profile.

I'll tag onto some of these threads as I get to them and if picture upload is no big deal I'll make sure to upload pics because that is what seems to be lacking many times. Who doesn't want to see a pic?

Would like to see pictures of the cars......... But also, lets see a picture of your wife!!!
Just kidding (in case my wife reads this). Having a spouse enable (or just not hate) your hobbies is more than half the battle..............Money is the other half!!

Been busy for the last week.

Yep, typo in my introductory post. My 84 Brougham is in fact a 94 Brougham.

And yes, the Country Squire is in original factory red--forget what they called it right now. 400 ci motor was standard and 460 was optional. The 400 is very anemic and I think they rated it at all of 158 h.p.

I once did a lot of repair on one of those Lima 400 Ford wagons.

Drag raced it against my 71 CDV with a 75 500 under the hood. The Ford almost won with my girlfriend driving!!!!

Yeah the ratings were anemic but the thing made power. Watch out for busted distributor drive gears on that or any Cleveland type engine.
