I was wondering what the specs were for my 1990 Fleetwood? You know horse power, torque and what not? Anyone know I would be happy.

What kind of Fleetwood is it? Is it the FWD fleetwood? Or the big body Fleetwood Brougham? If it's the FWD Fleetwood with the 4.5 V8, its 180hp and 240 lb/ft. If it's the RWD Fleetwood Brougham, theres a choice of 2 motors. If it's the base 5.0L 307 cid V8, its 140hp and 255 lb/ft. If you're lucky and have the optional 5.7 350cid V8, its gonna be 175hp and 295 lb/ft.
Hope this helps.

It is pretty quick, gets right on it. You would think it'd have more horse power with the gas mileage I get.

I am just joking but a with 15 to 18 mpg you would think I'd be pushing more horses. Just a stupid joke. It's about $3.00 dollars a gallon here for the 87 octane, I use 91 so you could imagine.

Oh wow, $3 a gallon!?!?! Where are you? Here in MN, its like $2.18 for regular. My '92 Deville gets about 16mpg on Super 90 octane gas. I would get about 14 with 91 octane premium.

yes Sandy, your car reigns supreme over all of the other 89-93 Devilles, Fleetwoods, and Sixty Specials! There are simply NONE as nice!

:bouncy: :thumbsup: :yup: :D :cloud9: :spin: :wave:

Only problem is thatno camera and no monitor screen
can pick up the true paint color, and that's frustrating
to me. I'd best describe it as metallic grape juice color,
or the skin of eggplant with silver glitter sparcely
sprinkled over it.

Not a clue, Ralph. I have averaged 700 miles a year driving it. This year, 2005, however, I drove it a grand total of 13 miles. This was partially because I was sick ftom March thru June.

DUDE! i payed 2.04 a gallon the other day. two gas stations had a "gas war" last monday and it took me an hour to get to a pump. yeah it went back up to 2.18 though (well i am paying 2.38) but i heard today that gas *might* drop below 2 dollars a gallon next week. dont know how true that is though.

That is one sweet interior Sandy puts mine to shame. Also I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and we get raped for everything. A beat up home in the ghetto costs $650,000 and if your lucky it will have 3 rooms and a yard.
