well about a year ago, i bought a 1986 Coupe DeVille. i loved the car and the engine went out on me as it seems all the HT4100's did, but, i want to know if it's worth fixing AND DON'T SAY NO YET because theres a catch...

the car has a E&G classics grille on it. i wouldn't have given this a second thought but i very highly doubt that the 80 some year old woman who owned the car before me (she bought it new) would have gotten an aftermarket grille... so i did a little research. turns out that E&G classics did some custom coupe devilles for 1986, and it also turns out they look identical to the car i own. (i don't have VIN's or anything just a picture).
here is the website i found the info on
http://www.car-nection.com/yann/Dbas_txt/Drm85-86.htm
and here is 2 pictures of it from that website.

another interesting thing about the car, it has little "polo edition" logo's in a few locations on the outside of the car. i don't know what this means but i assume it's akin to the "eddie bauer" fords and the "LL Bean" subarus and so on.

i sent an email to E&G classics to request and see if they could help me out but i figured here would be a good place to ask around also. i have no idea where to research. i have tried google and other search engines and checked encyclopedias but have fount next to nothing.

any help is greatly appreciated and thanks very much in advance for any feedback at all.

the VIN for my car is 1G6CD4788G4277005 i tried decoding it but it revealed nothing special.

i can post more pictures of my actual car if that would help.

I had a similar package on my first 85 Coupe Deville Diesel. Came with the Classic Cadillac grill, Trunk lid luggage rack, full roadster top, and special aluminium wheels. (Have not seen these wheels on anything else) I have to see if i can find a picture of this car. I know i have one somewhere.
