After 14 years of paying for kids college, some of those years 2 kids at once, I'm done paying. So, to help make me feel good about that I went shopping. I didn't come home empty handed.

I spotted a gem about a week ago, 96 Fleetwood, owned by a retired doctor who wintered in FL, 66K. The doctor passed away and I bought it from his son. It is as close to mint as can be.

One of the wagons pictured in my signature is going to have to go, to keep harmony (if you know what I mean). Actually, I don't need three. That is going to be a tuff call. If anyone is interested in one of them, PM me.

I haven't told Jake he won't be riding in the Caddy. He will not be happy.

I have the opposite problem as you know who has, once I buy something, it's hard for me to get rid of it.

Welcome to the Academy Grey Caddy club. Is it a livery car? If so don't ever let go of the seats. Used a much better foam and they have a lot more support than even the Brougham seats.

Good score.

Hi Bill

Not a livery car. It was owned by a 91 year old doctor who it either had it in FL or in his later years used a Grand Marquis for the winter. His son said no one has ever been in the back seat. I can't find a ding.

Now, one of the wagons has to go.

Tom,
Nice looking Fleetwood.

Just looking at the wheels and the seats.

It looks like a R1P commercial chassis.
Some examples from Ebay.
example 1
example 2

I thought those all came with a 9 and 1/2 inch rear end and ABS delete.

I would be curious to see the SPID tag.

Douglas.
