Group Description

This group is for 1967-1970 Cadillac Eldorado owners and anyone interested in learning about these cars.
Purpose of group: Members help each other in restoration, repair, or modification, and post stories/photos.
I want a system to develope where we work together in buying/storing parts cars, and trading for the rare parts.
You may post pics of for sale parts or cars you have also.

History & trivia: The 70 Eldorado was the first production vehicle to be offered with the Cadillac 500 engine (rated at 400 horse power with quiet single exhaust & AC running)It has 10:1 compression and produces 550 pounds of torque at 3500 RPMs. It is the largest production engine ever built. (In 1986 several owners of the new Camaro IROC Z found that this 16 year old car had a much faster acceleration.) The 70 Eldo was also the first GM car to be offered with antilock breaks (the option was called skid control and was non computerized.) Based on the '67 Tornado FWD frame, these cars have exceptionally good handling. I raced my 4680 pound 70 Eldorado in autocross races with stock suspension and 235/75 R 15 tires on 15 X 6 wheels- and was competitive with '84 Corvettes. (fastest time was three seconds slower than a 1984 Vette and five seconds slower than the overall winner in a 63 second run at the Fayetteville Arkansas SCCA autocross in 1986. I finished 12th overall out of 26 cars-most were Vettes, Porsches, MG Midgets, Camaros, Hondas ect. with a few mid size cars also.)
When restoration of my car is completed, it will have upgraded suspension bushings, 20 X 10" wheels and wide ZR rated tires.... and it will race again!
