I really wanted a white one,.  but,... Image_zpsjkwt2ojw

I drove it home today,. roads were dry and it was nice and sunny,.
The car drives very nice,. no rattles squeaks or wind noises,.oh so smooth,.!
It is really nice to look at all the switches and knobs etc, that look so new and clean,.
Interior really is immaculate,. heated seats work well,.
Typical bone stock lt1 car, turning off the traction control seems to wake it a bit,.(one tire fryer)
but i really don't like the long gears,. 3:73's would be nice,.
It really is beautiful, for a rust belt area car,.
The hood has 3 ugly stone chips, i am planning on havng the hood repainted and blended into the front fenders,. along with the front bumper filler, the clear coat on the filler has failed on one corner,.
I will add a nice set of stock chrome caddy wheels, and have the white walls cut to 1.5",.
and the obligatory 5% window tint,.
everything else will stay factory stock,.
I also have the original gold keys, the cadillac pen and calculator, that came in the original owners package along with the original keys' knock out key code, all very cool little extra's

I'll keep posting pictures,.

Do you prefer the chrome wreath versus the gold accented one?

Gold wreaths were popular dealer-installed items.

Tacky, IMO.

I would suggest its all about preference. My 85 Brougham came with the same colour combination plus all the optional gold accents (gold wreath, gold highlighting on the grill, wire wheel covers, door handles etc.) and found it look tacky. Really cheapened up the look of the car. First mods to the car was getting rid of all the gold crap. The second was to lose the Olds 307 and replaced it with the 350 diesel. Best move ever.

The PO obviously liked the gold as he ordered it that way but I had a totally different opinion. Otherwise I still say that car was and still is my favourite one of the bunch. Really hurt when I had to part it out.

Homie chrome.... At least that's what we called it in the new car prep area at the Buick dealership I worked at during my high school and college days.

Nice Caddy Nick. Looks really good.

interesting. Looks like they have some on the island.

Nice tint. I'm pretty bummed BC doesn't allow ANY tint on the front windows. I had to have the tint removed from both wagons to pass inspection.
