    He has several cool cars. He said he wanted to cut down on a few. All of his cars are first class cars. He treats them all like baby's.

    A 1973 Cadillac that is "front wheel drive"... Is that correct or does he have a mistake in his ad? Just a possible heads up for him....

    I think the first year model (mid to late 50's) was rear wheel since then all eldos front wheel.
    That beast has to weigh close to 5500lbs....

    man, that is one comfortable ride! I owned a '67 Mercury Parklane with a 410ci (390 base HP) that weighed 4000lbs. It was the most comfortable car I have owned. Like a sofa on wheels.

    You really don't appreciate the ride until you drive 300 miles or so nonstop.

    Learn something new everyday... I'm not that familiar with the older cars (older then me anyway) and it just didn't sound right to me. Thanks for the info Misfit!!

    All I can say is that is one sweet ride. My buddy owned a 71 or 72 El Dorado Barittz and it was more than a couch on wheels, talk about a sweet ride. They are almost the same car, the Barittz just had more extras, if that's possible!!
