Re: [Cadillac_Performance_Association] Re: Allnate

here go for a lot higher...the '90 allante w/75k miles was $11k, and the
one with 45k miles was $17k, so i went for a 96 eldorado blk/blk, 48k miles
for $14k and love it...

Please respond to
I used to work at Parker Cadillac in Little Rock I think the year was
1988. Anyway, the Allantes were always comming in about wind noise in
the tops. It was a design flaw. I don't know if they fixed that
problem by 1990 or not-if wind noise is not a big issue, go for it.
The car is Itallian made, however, and parts will be SUPER HIGH. I
wanted to put the Allante body on Corvette running gear-no cash for
that project however. The Allante-I think- is a 9 second 0-60
performer. The suspension is too soft in stock form for sporting
events like autocross, and I'm not sure what suspension upgrades are
available. If you are wanting it for pleaseure cruses, you will be
happy, but if you want it as a hot rod or serious sport car, there is
much improvement to be made and it will cost. make sure the engine is
good in the one you are looking at, because I think you will spend at
least $5,000 to get a new one.
