The Cadillac Allante (Allanté) was another attempt by one of the big three cash in on the allure of the European import; think Chrysler TC by Maserati or AMC Eagle Premier — but with an accent in the name causing grief for search engines and web indexing in the future. Zut alors! Oh wait. It […]
It takes a special kind of person to want to own and drive a Fleetwood from the 1990s, but I’m willing to raise my hand and admit that I’m that special. But it is only because Cadillac switched the Fleetwood name from the DeVille’s front-wheel-drive C-body to the rear-wheel-drive D-body (Buick Roadmaster, Chevy Caprice, Chevy […]
The ninth generation of Cadillac’s Eldorado (1986-1991) was a downsized E-Body luxury cruiser that shared its front drive chassis with the Buick Riviera and Oldsmobile Toronado. The product planners at Cadillac decided that building a convertible version wasn’t worth the tooling costs, ironic considering that the Eldorado name was first applied to convertible version of […]
The twelfth generation (let that sink in for a moment) Cadillac Eldorado was a continuation of the E-body GM chassis that put two feet forward with front-wheel-drive and an emphasis on comfort over sportiness. With the demise of the Pontiac brand, it seems that the speed freaks have moved over to Cadillac product planning where […]
Cadillac didn’t build wagons in the 60s, 70s, 80s, or 90s…in fact, the first factory wagon offering from Cadillac from the modern era is the 2010 CTS SportWagon, but you wouldn’t know that given the number of “coach-built” Caddiwagons you’ll find passing between buyers and sellers on ebay or craigslist or whatever. The fact that […]
This next car comes as a tip from Rock On who writes that it could be the “perfect winter beater!” Frankly, I find that suggestion to be insulting to such a low mile incredible piece of 90s GM engineering. This car belongs in a museum or in a collector’s garage. MMmkay, I just looked at […]
The first Cadillac Eldorado was a Harley Earl designed 2-door convertible launched in 1953 that was meant to be driven with the top down by rich folks. By 1956 Cadillac started using the designation Biarritz to designate the convertible version (and Seville for hardtop) and in 1959 they had an Eldorado Brougham version that was […]
People sell classic cars (and take a bath on them) when expectations and reality crash like two freight trains. The expectation was that the high desert dweller would store these classics for a day when they became valuable, but reality involved lots of blue tarps and some meth…err…mess. I’m not sure what is going on in this listing, but it seems like a fun weekend if you’ve got a car carrier and want to make some new friends.

der of this next car had a moment of clarity when he put down the blow torch and said; you know what most custom El Camino conversions are missing…a landau top and windows to see into the bed. He likely when took another sip from his moonshine jug and got back to fabricating one of the best looking Eldoradaminos I’ve ever seen. Find this 1978 Cadillac Eldorado offered for $14,750 in Ft Lauderdale, FL via craigslist. Tip from Bobby.
This next car comes as a tip from Matt V who calls it a “rare, unloved, “bustleback” body style”. I’m not sure about “unloved” because I think it adds a level of style that I love, but then I’m not your average person who would want to buy something as ugly as a brand new Toyota Camry or that podcar (LQ?) they are advertising for the Olympics. Barf. Find this 1985 Cadillac Seville Elegante offered for $7000 in Fremont, CA via craigslist.
