Color me geezerfied, but I’m starting to think that I need a 12th (twelfth!) generation E-Body Cadillac Eldorado in my life. I’m even going to say that anyone looking for a late model Audi A5, BMW 6-series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe or Lexus Whatevertheycallthemnow Coupe should consider a used Eldorado for a few reasons. First, this car was designed in the pre-Nurburgring lap time times when comfort was more important than braking performance on a track. People who buy Corvettes don’t even take them to the track, so you think your SLS AMG is gonna see anything other than bumper-to-bumper traffic on Rodeo Drive…I don’t think so. Second, the Eldorado was the pinnacle of GM/Cadillac’s expertise in front-wheel-drive engineering and is equipped with legendary Northstar V8. And lastly, because this thing is devoid of the gimmicky infotainment systems that’ll be immediately out-dated by whatever neural-link cell-brain-computer Elon-Zucker-Gates mandates we wear 24-7 in a few years (it is for your own safety kids!!) gets put in the latest cars. This comes from a time when cars could be fixed (and still can) by any local mechanic or a good set of tools. Find this 1998 Cadillac Eldorado bidding for $3401 reserve-not-met located in Pompano Beach, FL with 3 days to go.
If somebody would have told me in the year 2004 that in 15 years a Cadillac CTS-V would be worth the same or more than a C5 Z06 from the same year, I would have told them they were insane. But here we are 15 years later, and an ’05 CTS-V sells for about the same as or more than an ’04 Z06…maybe those extra doors are worth the extra money? Personally, I’d need one for a few year test drive to find out. Find this 2005 Cadillac CTS-V offered for $14,500 in Pleasant Hill, CA via craigslist.
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 features and web indexing in the future. I also can’t help but […]
With the launch of the second generation CTS sedan in 2008, Cadillac finally gave the hungry masses what they demanded…a wagon version of the BMW 3-series & Mercedes C-Class competitor. It wasn’t a bad looking wagon (and much better looking than the slab sided CTS Coupe thing) and the American buying public did exactly what […]
Cadillac launched their CTS-V sport sedan in 2004 with a manual gearbox and firebreathing V8 that was nothing short of awesome. The standard CTS sedan was focused on stealing sales from cars like the Mercedes-Benz C-Class or BMW 3/5 series..but the V-version was aimed at stealing sales from BWM’s M division and Mercedes-Benz AMG division…and […]
This next car isn’t the car that Robert De Niro’s character (Ace Rothstein) drove in Casino, because that was an El Dorado…but it probably has similar bomb absorbing underbody panels and is so seriously gangster that I can’t help but smile. This is the kind of car that a gangster like Vito Genovese or Crazy Joe […]
Here is a riddle for you: What is black on the outside, a family car on the inside and a Corvette on the underside? If you said a frog, you are wrong…it is this next car..the legendary first generation CTS-V, which combined Corvette LS6 power and T56 manual transmission in a family friendly package. Find […]
This next car comes right behind another big long wheelbase oddball with an extra set of jump seats, but it isn’t an ancient lumbering Volvo. It is a big V8 powered American luxury boat that seats 8 people and has enough velour to make any 80s fan happy. Find this 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 offered for […]
To say that this next car will need some restoration is a bit of an understatement. The interior will need to be nuked from orbit (it’s the only way to be sure) and there is enough rust to earn a spot on the endangered species list…but…BUT…this thing is wicked sweet. It started life from the […]
As an apology to all of you readers for the pink Studebaker Avanteaf thing the other day, I wanna post an engine swap that is properly done. Something that’ll put a smile on your face and black stripes on the ground. Like a 9 second Geo Tracker. Find this 1993 Geo Tracker LQ4 Turbo here on eBay with […]
