1979 Cadillac Seville Olds 350 gasoline from North America
A classic luxury
I had just recently purchased the 79 Seville, but I have also previously owned a 1977 and 1978 model. I have not had any problems with these Sevilles, and I've used it exclusively as a weekend car.
These cars are 35 years old, so they are going to require some maintenance and replacement of parts, but parts are generally cheap.
My 79 Cadillac is very clean, and it runs like it's almost brand new. I recently drove it over 150 miles on a weekend trip, and not a single problem occurred.
For a 35 year old car, it handles well and drives smoothly. The leather seats are very comfortable... like I'm sitting on my couch. It runs smooth and quiet.
The handling and performance are not as good as a BMW or any other modern car out on the road today, but these kinds of car were not specifically designed for that purpose.
If you're looking for a weekend cruiser in comfort, you can't go wrong with the first generation Seville.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
