RE: [Cadillac Club] info from VIN
- All the information you are looking for, including the VIN data, is in the
Standard Catalog of Cadillac, either First or Second Edition, ed. James T.
Lenzke, Krause Publications. I have never seen it in a library, but can
probably be ordered online or bought in some bookstores. I have both
editions and they are amazingly detailed. The first goes through 1990 and
the second through 2000. Also, look at ebay or autolit.com for used
dealership catalogs from those years. Cadillac standard yearly catalogs
have all the specs on the vehicles contained inside and some nice pix, too.
Hope this helps. Let everyone know when you get the site going. Good luck.
