Makes For A Great Classic If Your Into Cadillacs — Only 82,000 miles, Like new condition,performs and handles extremely well, paint original w/ some scratches, original interior in excellent condition, original leather top like new.Driving and handling of car makes long drives most pleasurable and is extremly comfortable on longer rides.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Runs great

Cons: Heavy Doors

Big Comfortable — performance is down compared to cars with a similar size engine 7 litre car needs regular repars to keep it maintained as a daily driver has rattles in suspension have replaced front end bushes and all shocks not an easy job replacing the front end bushes as steering box needs to be removed and mounts need to be removed etc for right hand bushes very comfortable car to drive especialy long distances will be keeping this car next repairs will be upgrade of brakes with cross drilled rotors and ceramic pads as car is now 31 years old not a cheap car to maintain in Australia due to freight costs for parts fuel economy is poor currently 6 mpg with or without air con running but it is a good looking cruiser out on the highway cruising at 70mph

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: very comfortable

Cons: poor fuel economy

Looks Like A Living Room On Wheels But What Power! — The car's 4,484 pound weight made it a gas guzzler but the raw power of its 425 Cubic Inch V8 gave me the power I needed - if I wanted to, I would leave people in a cloud of oil mixed with gas exhaust!

Pros: Speed

Cons: Gas Guzzler

Black With A Red Gut! — replaced all body fillers, blasted, primed myself, redid interior except for seats they were fine, had mats custom made to go around floor mounted gas pedal, now they mass produce them. It had all the scripts, emblems, opera lamps, All new old stock parts and accessories everything worked properly, I didn't lose any money on the sale beings I did a lot of the expensive work myself, I will always Love you Whitney.

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

Pros: This car in my opinion although not a professional one,  this is the best caddy ever made

Cons: the only one is I don't have it anymore
