There are some hideous cars on there. However, I would take one of those 75/6 station wagons in a heartbeat!

I like the Eldorados with the rumble seats. However, I LOVE the Opera coupes. I saw one in person many years ago and fell in love with them, although I like them on the 70's SeVille body better than the bustle back Sevilles.

I love those two tone Sevilles and Eldorados from the early 80's. Just really great design on both of those cars.

This one was for sale on eBay a last November.



If I remember correctly, the starting bid was $2000, and the reserve had not been met when I looked at it. The douchebag selling it said that it was the car's second auction (the first buyer never came through with the money) and if it didn't sell, he was going to run it in a demolition derby. I didn't have the heart to check back and see if it ever sold.

This Seville is for sale by me on Craigslist with no listed price; just "negotiable best offer."


I've wondered, being that the 80's Seville was identical to the (Fleetwood) Brougham, front end wise, would it be possible to put one of those extensions on a Brougham? Most of the coach builders who built cars like this are out of business, and they're worth tens of thousands of dollars, so harvesting fenders is out of the question.

I thought that would be an issue with me when I bought my Brougham, but I just park in the back of the lot. The spaces on the streets are huge here, so parellel parking is a non-issue.

I think Nashville was designed for huge vehicles, since everybody here drives a full size pickup, Suburban, or a dually.

Last time I was in Tennessee every other car I saw was a dually pickup. Around here you are lucky if you can find a spot that my car fits in without the ass end sticking into the aisle.

^I'd MAYBE like that if they hadn't messed with the roofline and back seat.

I don't know how you'd turn it, even if it does fold in the middle like a bus.




The longest limo in the world is a 100-ft long vehicle created by Jay Ohrberg of Burbank, California.

Built mainly as an exhibition piece, the owner is now allowing the rental of the vehicle for various functions and events. Although the vehicle is not technically street legal due to the vehicle’s enormous size, it can be driven from place to place with ease by a specially trained chauffer.

World's Longest Limousine
The longest limo in the world rides on 26 tires spaced along the length of the limo’s body. There are dual driver’s cabins on the vehicle, one at the front and one at the back, to help with driving the vehicle in reverse. The middle of the longest limo in the world is hinged to fold to help the vehicle make turns around corners.

Where the longest limo in the world really shines is in the passenger cabin of the limo, where state of the art luxuries abound. A heated Jacuzzi tub is nestled in the interior, along with a sun deck, a swimming pool, and a king sized bed. A helipad is located on the limo as well and the televisions inside are connected to the limo’s own satellite dish.

Even more so; not only was the front end extended 2 feet, but the trunk was extended an additional 2 feet, making it 4 feet longer.



If the seller can be believed (IF), then the car is currently titled to West Coast Customs and was going to be customized for Snoop Dogg. The actual owner of the car, who I could not meet with, is apparently a partner and minority shareholder of West Coast Customs. The guy couldn't give me any information on who the coach builder was.

I drove it, and it rode as smooth as glass. I didn't even know the engine was running. It handled a little weird, being that big and still front wheel drive. And of course the 4100 was severely incapable of dragging that much car around (which is probably why Snoop didn't want it).

$8,000.00 deal for me (or anyone else from Craigslist) and $12,000.00 for several "bigshots" coming in from Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Chicago. One of you guys go for it, tellem I sent you... As for me, I'll stick to RWD's and tailfins.

The super long 80s seville coupes are the best thing they did to them. the normal hump back 4 door ones look terrible.

I have a friend that has a 85 FWB and he put a 7" lift kit on it so he could put some 24" rims on it. I personally liked it except the fact that the car was ragidy and the grill was barely hanging on! I would of fixed everything else on the car before I did the lift and rims. I want to do that to my caddi sometime but I am going to do it right!
