> Sal, i wish i have had half the cadillacs you haveThanks.. I guess I've been lucky. But keep in mind - I bought them
very inexpensively.. The Sedan DeVille was $300 - and in excellent
condition and great running. The passeneger door wouldn't open - that
was the only problem - and it was easy to fix.. The Eldorado's were
both around $1200.00 and they both ran great as well - and looked
great.. The deals are out there. :)
