Welcome, now we have 3 Caddy chicks on Forum. :bouncy: I saw a kid at the pumps the other day, and I talked to him. He had a white 1974 Eldo, with the 500 cubic in. engine. Very impressive. I don't know too much about the older ones, but I am having more and more appreciation for them everyday. I hope finding parts isn't a problem. I bet your interior color is white?

Welcome cadillaccadillac
Are you in washington. For the older caddies i was watching a show where they started taking off panels of the car for 1/4 mile time and it shaved off 5 secs once they were done. i'll have to find it in article form and post it. They started with a 500cid boat that was 17+ secs and started taking off the hood, trunk, fender,s seats etc... it was great.

Maybe your cat converter is still on the exhaust (plugged up or ?) and thats why it's slow? Does anyone know the hp rating on this beast?
190hp just isn't enough to get a 5000#+ car rolling quickly.
Here's a little info on the '76 Eldo.

Welcome aboard..... Thanks for signing up....

Im up there as the youngest.... 17!

Man, its golden to see fellow teens getting into cadillacs as their first car.... I thought I was the only teenager one that liked luxuary cars....... Guess I was wrong...... Plus, a GIRL..... Most girls (i know anyway) want to get eclipses, mustang convertables, or sebring convertibles ( :vonmit: ).......

So we have 2 Daves here and we're both 16, and I think we both registered in August. Davesmed is like half a year older than I am though.

So anyway, welcome to the forums cadillacallidac.

Welcome aboard from a fellow 1976 cadillac owner. your eldog is sweet i love the body styles of the 71-78 eldogs almost bought a 75 but the guy was asking to much, maybe he'll lower it one day, but tell then i'll stick with my 76 coupe deville. if your car running rough give it a tune up, change the air and fuel fitler and adjust the timing for speed and not for smog and you'll have plenty of power.
