I have finally decided to sell my cushy 02 honda accord, and pursue my
dream of owning a car with style. Idealy, I'm hoping to get a 60s/70s
cadillac, probably an eldo or fleetwood. I might consider some early
80s, but the body style is one of my main priorities, and they started
going downhill in the mid-80s (imo).
anyway, I'm writing to see if anyone out there could point me in the
right direction for advice on how to select the right used cadillac.
i'm not very experienced with the automotive trade, either from a
consumer viewpoint or from a mechanics viewpoint. I am, however,
pretty mechanically inclined and am hoping to learn about taking care
of a car with this purchase.
so, my main goals for right now are to buy an older, well-running,
rust-free caddy that might also be a long-term project car, but that
would at least be functional in the mean time. are there any
years/models that i should completely stay away from? what are the
critical things to look at when shopping around? and, are there any
good books and/or sites on researching caddy's?
THANK YOU! to anyone out there with some answers.
