1981 Cadillac FleetwoodReview
Aside From The Power Plant, Its A True Classic. A Rare Car In Its Triple Black Paint. — 1981, one of cadillacs worst years when it came to new technology. The one and only year of the 4-6-8 motor. Originally designed to save fuel, ended up being a major nightmare. This car was stored in a garage since the late 90's in Malden, when the owner passed, the rental property owners wanted it out. It saw day light for the first time in 10 years when i got it. No keys, title, locked in a garage. Door locks were frozen (couldnt slim jim) This car is a project in the works. Would like to restore it after I finish my 57 Chevy.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: This one isnt really driveable.
Cons: 4-6-8 engine

A Very Majestic Limousine
I always wanted a limousine for special occasions. This one is the best! Rides so smooth and quiet you think you're riding on a cloud. Even at 80 MPH it cruises along with power to spare. Fully loaded... Read More
