Pros

Get lots of attention, that smooth ride, it floats down the road , bulletproof engine/transmission, the SIZE!

Cons

10-12 mpg, finding parts, the SIZE!

Well Built Pimpmobile, Love It — One does not buy this car for performance, it's all about the attention baby! To be large cars the 1971-78 Eldorados handled quite well. If buying one try to find one in great to good condition and just enjoy it. Restoration cost a lot and may not be worth it, because these aren't exactly collectables

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great Fun In A Classic Convertible — This Eldorado convertible belonged to a dentist in Sherman Texas. He purchased new in 1974 from Young Motor Company for $10,000. It is white with red interior. Most of the original items are still on the car. It only has 50000 miles and drives like a dream. Only major problem is the carpet is beginning to age and some of the fuses have finally given out. This is the best car for crusing-I get more looks in this car than in any other car I have ever driven. The 8 track tape deck still works!

Descent — very boring car has very little power but sounds nice when you start it like a muscle car trapped in the body of a caddy. taking off it feels like this car can destroy a truck it a monster car

Great If You Can Afford To Keep It Going Or Have The Time By eller63
