    Selling this for my grandparents. In the family since new, garaged its whole life. In amazing original condition. They are asking $12,000, I can work on the price for WFF'er. See many pics on the craigslist link.

    That thing is Badassss. I smell a Hunter S. Thompson road trip.

    We were somewhere around Bozeman on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold.

    Pretty car. My garage isn't big enough, even IF I kicked the boat out. Handy though, that you can load the trunk while standing in it. Good luck. I know with care this vintage Caddy will run forever.

    There a couple of Cadillac guys that show up at the drive in at Covington on Friday nights, if you had the time you could take it down there on a sunny afternoon and throw a for sale sign on it and probably get some interest. Otherwise contact the Northwest Cadillac and LaSalle club, they also have a classified on their website(probably have better luck than craigslist).

    That is a beauty...love seeing quality classics. You might also consider Hemming's Motor News.

    Bad Ass is right. I understand the Thompson comment, but shy away from the drugs. I see the Rat Pack of fly fishers passing scotch around, smoking cigars, taking a road trip. What about those young guys from the Angling Expedition Group. Drive cross country fishing from this ride.

    What a ride...

    Shit...when driving on HWY 101 in Oregon when you hit a 20lb racoon there wil be no damage with that thing....unfortunately my honda civic suffered severe damage to the tune of 700.00 bucks.

    Thanks for the comments, and the info Kcahill. Anyone with other suggestions on where to list it? Does the price seem reasonable?

    Sick ride, reminds me of the intro to 'Shorty the Pimp', just not a black Caddy.

    Maybe hit up the dudes from that TV show Fast 'n Loud for a sale?

    I've actually been in contact with Magnus Inersun, the Swede they sell their Caddy's too on that show. He says buisness has died and not interested.

    Man this is one sweet ride. I would love to drive this ride, reminds me of how big my first car was, a 1973 Chevrolet Caprice Classic. Huge.

    As a smart ass know it all kid (not quite, but you know...) I remember looking at Caddy's with some disdain. Several years later I drove one to a convention. How wrong I was! Pretty GD nice, cruising down the freeway in your living room. I'd love to own it, but won't.

    Gotta love that Hunter S. Thompson line. Best opening paragraph ever.

    Cool tank, check out this site:
    http://bringatrailer.com/
    look under the heading for "submissions". While not technically a classic, it's close and it's a one-owner. Any documentation would increase value: Bill of Sale, manuals, maintenance records, etc.
