1990 Cadillac Brougham 4 Door Sedan 5.7 Litre from North America
The Best of e Bestt
Normal brakes tires etc.
These are among the best cars cadillac ever made for fit finish reliability, and gas mileage is reliably 19 around town and 21 on the road I have had 3 of these cars a gray one a Burgundy one and a blue one. I wish I had one with no miles on it ready to go when my gray one wit almost 200,000 on it finally dies. GM wonders why they are failing. Why don't they build what they already know how to build best a retro 60's style Cadillac with all the safety features and great gas mileage. It might be scarry, people would be lined up at the dealerships door like a supermarket to buy them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

This review is rated low. I don't get it. I am a 40 year old male (Younger than the "set" the PR flaks associate with an automobile of this ilk) The writer of this review is RIGHT!!! The Cadillac Brougham is what we want! The 2005 to current Chrysler 300 is a hit on account of being CLOSE to an American Luxury Car. There is nothing for us lovers (READ BUYERS) of full size GM luxury buyers. The only thing that comes close is the Mercury Grand Marquis (Every year it looks more & more like a Buick Roadmaster!) and the Lincoln Town Car.
Now before you think I am advocating a move to Ford products FORGET IT!! These car will NOT be available in a year or two!
The writer is right. GM should re-create the Brougham. If they want Cadillac to be some "edgy-wild" division, OK, let Buick occupy Cadillac's former position and produce cars for the "DTS" market.
A re-created BROUGHAM would be the Limited Brougham (RWD with traditional Buick type ride) A DTS based car (Lucerne FWD American Luxury car) would be Roadmaster. The LaCrosse would be LeSabre. (To cover high-end midsize family haulers)
This should cover "the market" and give people a chance to buy somthing NOT in the Impor idiom.
I swear there is a market for AN AMERICAN STYLE CAR!

I couldn't agree more with the above writer. I prefer the full size american car of yesteryear, and though I like the full-frame (separate body-on-frame style construction), it's not absolutely necessary. But what is necessary is a large PUSHROD engine, preferably V-8, with lots of torque, made entirely of CAST-IRON. These long lost engines are more reliable, durable, and provide better power where you need it (low-end) than all the expensive high-tech nonsense since. Lastly rear wheel drive is preferable though not really absolutely necessary.
I currently own a 1992 Buick Park Avenue and its pretty close to what I like. I also have a 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 which is wonderful, but just a bit primitive and gas-guzzling for todays world (alas).
