I took these before, I should have gotten closer to the road, to get the front of all 3 but I didn't.

the light grey Brougham is my moms, it is an '89, gold editon with a big ol "pimp grille" the brown Brougham is her boyfirends, it's an '87, pretty basic, and the really sharp, nice looking DeVille on the side, is mine :D my baby- '93 Coupe DeVille (with gold emblem package too)

Damn, this makes us look ultra rich, but the Caddys loose their value soo quick, adn the late 80's Broughams are going for pennys on the dollar.

Mostly my mothers car...... the thing needs alot of TLC, both inside and out...but money is a problem, and it runs, runs well, and gets her back and fourth to where she needs to go, so I guess it's good for now (we are slowly fixing things, but it needs quite a bit of little odds and ends)

And here she is :D

After I got out of work (at 3) I went outside, rubbed whatever little bit of rubbing alchohol we had on the windsheild of my car (someone drove through a carwash with that stupid wax thing, and messed up the windsheild) then I got glass cleaner and cleaned the inside and outside of all the glass, cleaned the dash etc.... then got our new little Dirt Devil, took the floor mats out (can see them on the ground in one of the pictures) vaccumed them and all the carpet in the car, there are no stains at all, or nothing like that, only thing is, on the driver floor mat, the carpet is rubbed off in the area your foot always rests (big deal)

You can also see where the Coupe deVille emblem fell off (now haning out in the trunk)

WOW!! Those rides are nice! I love the fins on the Broughams! They're my favorite Cadillac fins, besides the '59 Edlorado's ones. That DeVille has to be the cleanest and nicest looking one I have seen in a LONG while. Those windows are so clean!!! Keep it up, and if everyone did that, Cadillac wouldnt need any CTS or XLR to bring Cadillac back to the top!

what a beautiful baby....

You can find those emblems on eBay pretty cheap. 3m makes a double-sided adhesive tape that you can custom cut to hold it on, if necessary. All-in-all, you can probably do the job for under $15.

We actually towed the camper with my moms Brougham on two seperate local camping trips last year....spent almost $1500 on stuff for the car, and camnper to get it all ready, but the 307 just dosn't have the power to do it, the friggin tounge weight on the camper is almost 500lbs....it is a 1972 Shast 16SC....16 feet long, about 2300lbs..... it needs work, but gets the job done.... the lastest news is, we are going to winch it in the back of our property and make a mini-camp site with picnic table and fire ring with it, as we don't have a truck to pull it with, and it has seen better days. (some previous idot jack-knived the thing witha big truck or something, you can see the big dents onthe front) But hey, for the $250 we got it for, it's not bad (gas/electric fridge, stove and heater all work) so it is just used as a second bedroom right now (for company or something like that)

This shows the top...I don't think it's vinyl...not sure what it is, but I like it. I really like the wreath and crest in the glass too.

Do those side opra lights go on at night, or are they for show?

And finally, the back of my car.

I persoanlly love the '91-'93 Coupe DeVille, I like my '93, becuase I can say it's the last year of the Coupe DeVille.... but the car just looks nice..... IMO (no offense to anyone that has one...) but in '94, they became ugly..... just too rounded, no charactor for the front/grille, and the back was also rounded.....infact I didn't really start to like the DeVille again until the new 2000 (right?) year change.... but I like the new STS better then the DeVille.

I dunno what it is about my car, I used to think that it was a real crappy car (wayy back) and it was part of Cadillacs big downfall etc... then when I decided I didn't want a late 80's Brougham, I started looking at other models around this time, saw the Coupe DeVille, said, oooo I like it, and started doing alot of reasearch on both the car and the engine. I am very happy with my purchess.

I like the nose/grille, the hood how it still has charactor to it (not just flat or rounded) there are still mini-fins on it, the back looks cool, there is alot of chrome outside, but it is not tacky, and looks nice etc... and I really like the setup of the interrior (although I hate the idea that there is no tach, oil pres, temp or volt guages.... I want to add those though)

Sorry for the long message here... I would put these in the gallery but I want to wiat until I get the car washed and waxed (once I start driving it) and take pictures in a better place then my driveway..... as you can see from the pictures, I love in the middle of nowhere...all farm land.

Sounds like a country song, "Love in the middle of nowhere..."

Actually, with the reclining seats, you might just get lucky parked in a cornfield or something with that special someone...

So you're counting down the days until you can drive that thing, right?

What is it now, 22? How many hours? Minutes? Seconds?

Elvis:

Yes, actually I have a mini count down clock, and according to it right now, I have 21 days, 13hrs. 12min and 45 sec. :D

I went to Advnace today, and got some things for my car... I got chrome cleaner, and cleaned the driver side and front (got too dark to do the rest) and WOW does it shine, I will post pics, but I am afraid I will be posting too many and get some of you guys mad :) I also got some leather cleaner/condition spray to clean up the car with.
