Andrea's '79 — Gas- 15 MPH. Not an oil hog by any means. not many rust spots. new tires, new shocks, new brake lines. belts are new too. 425 block Love the acceleration. only problem I have is sharp turns, there is a short in the steering column so it honks. The Horn sounds like a freight train.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: u can make it a clown car

Cons: the honking

Great Old Cadillac — Suffice it to say, anybody who knows me, knows about my '79 Coupe Deville Phaeton. I bought it in 2006 and did a partial restoration on it. If you've ever seen GoodFellas, you know what it looks like, Ray Liotta drove one just like it while running from helicopters. It's a good car, if it was still new, it would be a *great* car. At over 220k it still runs strong & sturdy. And thanks to me, it looks damn near new. But anything that's 30 years old is going to have some repair costs here and there - that's the *only* downside to the car for me. It's very fun to drive, and you get a lot of comments from people from all walks of life.

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

Pros: If you like big, handsome American steel & a RWD big block

Cons: If old cars scare you, or you can't find a big enough parking space.
