My Baby!

"I love my 1998 Cadillac Eldorado ETC, the Northstar's 300 HP is very impressive; able to hold it's own and then some. This was the top of the line Cadillac's with all of the creature comforts of cars ten years newer. She takes Premium fuel, but averaging 17 MPG...and I don't hold back =) Another fun requirement of owning a Northstar is performing the W. O . T. exercise...on ramps and frontage roads; in second gear take her up to 80 MPH and let off the gas leaving the load of the engine drag your speed back down to 20-30 MPH...rinse & repeat to burn the carbon from your heads. Expensive car to maintain and repair if you don't do your own wrenching...I think of her as my newer muscle car!"

My Baby!

To me, by far the best vehicle that I ever owned.

"I purchase my 97 El Dorado coupe from a private owner. I along with my mechanic inspected the auto engine,exterior,e.t.c... The moment I did a test drive, I ultimately felt in love with the aero dynamic of the car and the steering power of this sports/sedan coupe. Seats are comfortable and the shift gear is right side by side with your thigh that It reminds me of riding an airplane. Reliable auto that takes me from point A to point Z and took it as far as Vegas. For any Cadillac enthusiast, I would recommend this auto."

"I've only owned this car for a month, and put on 300 miles. The only thing I don't like about the vehicle, is I'm tall, and I have to move the steering wheel, when I get out. Otherwise, I've NEVER drove, or owned a nicer vehicle than this."
