This happend in the winter and the car was cold, i didn´t wait for the front windshield to warm upp and it was fogy. Somone left that benz 190 on the side and i crashed into it :( but it was easy repair. I bought some replasement parts like fender and bumper and the front lights, but i think that benz need a lot more fixing :)

^Why the Euro clip? Wouldn't that be just like leaving the car disfigured...

That Benz got totalled out. You might as well have got the euro clip.
The first time I read that I thought you meant take the front end off the benz and put it on the cadillac.:eek: At least you'd have wipers on your headlights then.

looks better than the 4 headlight setup

Everyone is always going back and forth at this, has anyone ever posted a poll to see what the majority says?

Looks like a professional repair job! I guess the little piece that contains the fiber optic light monitors was wrecked. You should be able to find a new one easily at a junkyard or in the parts thread.

By the way, I really like the low stance your car has. It's just enough that it's noticeable, but not so low that you scrape the underside on every rock in the road.

loving that low look to on stocks! Mine is lowered in the rear with air shocks, but leans to the left side more due to a bent spring that I haven't replaced.....

What do you have for the suspension?
i have a proplem with the suspension, i just put 6,2 diesel under the hood and it´s so heavy that the suspension is too weak, it´s too soft when driving over speedbumps and uneven roads, any ideas how to fix that proplem??
I just installed new rear airshocks but haven´t connected the airpump, that´s why the car is so low:)

It´s originaly 4,1 V8 aluminum engine. That engine was terrible. the 6,2 gmc jimmy 1983 engine was taking space in my garage so i just put it in my deville and it work´s great :)

Some early 80s caddys came with a 5.7 diesel, maybe suspension parts for them will work. Otherwise you may have to go with a cargo setup. Definitely gonna need some different springs.
