1966 Cadillac Eldorado Review
I Will Miss Her :*( — No longer have this car :( Was sad to let it go. Never had it past 75% of its potential, but she helped me out in a lot of sticky situations, but also put me in a lot of sticky situations. Was meant to be a complete restore project, but didn't have the resources (i.e. time, money, space) to work on it. Was used as a daily driver for about a year. Could not get the generator to charge the battery, was replaced 2X. did not seem to have a short. Rides like a dream even to this day!
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: What can you say?! Its a Cadillac. The original Gangster Car! Rode like a dream. Plenty of space, plenty of class and character.
Cons: Drank gas like nobody's business, and needed a lot of work (great shape for a '66, but still a '66!)

Great If You Can Afford To Keep It Going Or Have The Time
