What made you decide to sell? It will look so out of place in Sprocket's "wagon only" driveway! Laughing Laughing

Signed a lease on some office space for my side business.  I was running out of room at home and needed something closer to town (more centralized)  www.GreenvilleWeddingMusic.com It would be nice to have a little cushion in the bank for slow months too...which was why I decided to let it go.

I am also getting to the point where I can't possibly drive 3 cars! Let alone maintain them the way I want.   Neutral

Thanks Mike,

The first car I drove regularly was a 73 Sedan DeVille (parent's) but in all the cars I've owned this will be the first Caddy.

I'm psyched.

Chris can update the title of this thread to read, "It's GaSSt's now". Yep Timmy is the proud owner of this luxurious beast. I had it for just under 3 years and only put about 12K and factory chrome wheels (thanks Ruphraxe) and tires on it.

Currently needs the trans rebuilt and the AC line replaced, but she goes forward pretty well, lol.
It will be his lovely brides DD when fixed up. Loved the car, but a wagon guy at heart...

Yep its mine now (my wife's). She was not thrilled with my blue roadmaster wagon anymore so me and Sprocket worked a deal for me to get this for her. It will stay all original with the exception of the radio. I really hate how high it sits but I promised my wife I'd leave it alone.

It's funny going through this thread and realizing why the fans seem to always be on (Chris reprogrammed the computer) and there was still compound traces on the inner fenders under the hood which seems to be from when he detailed the paint years ago. I recently cleaned up the engine bay.

I changed the transmission due to the reverse gear not working. Along with that the water pump, ect sensor, tstat and air filter was changed. The ac compressor is leaking and I will be replacing the entire ac system as soon as my wife is willing to give the car up and go back to the wagon for a day. Shes very proud of her new Cadillac. Very Happy

Here is a recent photo with the wagon it replaced as her daily in the background.

Nick had been tempting me with his Fleetwood last WagonFest. I really like them....I forgot how nice it was to cruise around in this during the short time I had it. LOL

Glad it lives on still and with the Mac Daddy Bbody Master.

Tim will give it the love I did not. New top and paint, etc. While I LOVED this car and it was my first Caddy, I couldn't put my surfboards inside......I was happy to pass it off to Jessica as I know how much she likes it. My Dad had a string of Caddys while I was growing up.... '60,'68,'73 Sedans and an '80 Fleetwood coupe sp I know what that luxo barge ride is like...
