  • Hoovie, are you eventually selling the Caddy? How much would you want? We are looking for an 86 to 92 Brouham for my Grandfather. He used to have one and wants another!

  • If you get it repainted remove the headlight indicators I've seen many of these with them painted over then you won't be seeing your turn signals lit nor headlights or highbeams anymore. And sorry for the correction L.E.D wasn't a thing in 87 that is fiber optic to show you the illumination of your lights.

  • The signal lamp indicators on top of the fenders are not LEDs. They're just fiber optic cables that are inserted in the lamp housings. So you know when your lights burn out because then the indicator doesn't light up, either.

  • The Caddys low horsepower should not be blamed solely on the carburetor, it should be blamed on the governement choking everything down mercilessly with endless EPA safety, mileage and emission restrictions and numerous expensive gadgets and devices that prohibited horsepower forcing manufacturers to turn car systems into NASA science experiments at the expense of basic performance and driving the cost of a car into triple what it was in the 70's. Cadillac and others will never be what it once was because youre not buying a General Motors car anymore - youre buying a mandated (G)overnment (M)otors car thats so costly and expensive to repair because of the rocket science theyve had to employ to make them run on the hair tonic they call gasoline now that many people cant even hope to buy a new car any more. Try leaving one of Hoovies supercars sit for ten years and try to start it, im guessing most of them would not, or if they did they would not be drivable.

  • Late History of Cadillac GM in 1980s: Let's make Cadillacs out of plastic! GM: Cadillac sales are plummeting! GM in 2000s: Let's make Cadillacs hip and modern. GM: Cadillac sales are plummeting! GM in 2010s: Let's make Cadillac all electric! GM: Cadillac sales are plummeting! GM soon: Quick, let's dump all our debt onto Cadillac and bankrupt the brand like we did with Pontiac!

  • For the Brougham - not LED in the front fenders or rear headliner for the turn signal/headlight indication/stop light - it is fiber optics! Also the sail panels/C pillars use 120VAC powered fluorescent lights. In the trunk you'll find a wire harness with yellow tape wrapped around it cautioning about the higher voltage.

  • Great pair of GM cars! I can offer something surprising about the technology used: Those lights you see on the front fenders and above the rear window inside are actually not lights. They're lamp monitors, quite common on Cadillacs built in the 70s and 80s. They were pioneered by Chevrolet in the 60s. On your car, a piece of fiber optic cable runs to each lamp assembly, passing light from the high/low beams up front and turn signals/parking lights front and rear. What brings us high speed internet today was tasked back then with protecting the Cadillac owner from a post-19th hole DUI due to poor judgement and a burned out bulb.

  • Overall, I like the style of the caddie, except fort the shape of the rear widow frames and roof junction on the 4 door sedan. Just looks off and not properly styled and integrated.

  • At least the Cadillac has the Oldsmobile 307. You can tell by the oil filler tube on the front of the intake manifold. It’s hard to imagine they put the HT4100 engine in them for several years. It’s almost like they were trying to push loyal customers away on purpose.

  • The Caddy's remote turn signal indicators are not LED, they are fiber optic. So they are true light monitors. You are seeing the actual light from the bulb, so when they go out it means the bulbs are gone.

  • This is a trip down memory lane, I've driven both that years Cadillac (when it was new, my father's) and the model Grand Marquee that Wizard had just sold (it was my work car, new when first driving it). Meanwhile my personal car was a Supra Turbo. Believe it or not, I could appreciate the comfort of those land yachts and they made driving the pock marked streets of NYC alot more tolerable. I miss those old body on frame V8 cars.

My 1984 Cadillac moves down the road like it should now :D

  • Man... those damn plastic quarter panel & fender extensions on early GM cars!! I know they were made to flex as the front/rear bumpers were compressed in a low speed collision, but even if a car was garage kept those pieces rotted or became so brittle they flaked apart if you touched them.
