Default 2001 Cadillac DeVille

I just listed the Cadillac on eBay and I know it is not a pro-car.

While they may have been nice and fairly dependable cars, with those frog-eyed headlamps, these certainly weren't the most attractive Cadillacs ever built. They did, however, make some pretty good-looking funeral coaches. The S&S Masterpiece on this platform is an excellent example.

If only it was that easy. Wife already informed me how she is spending the money. Certainly going to miss that car. This leaves me with nothing to drive except a company car so have to be a really good boy and not get fired!

Well, why would you ever buy a depreciating "asset" if you have an employer that provides you with one? That is the ideal situation. I know of other FDs that pretty much drive their company-furnished cars exclusively.

If you need to buy something, get a Town Car, Grand Marquis, or Crown Vic! They only require gas, oil, brakes, and tires. Cheapest cost of ownership of any car I have ever owned.

IN your business suggest a long door town car. Plenty around and getting cheap. Or a long door P-70 Crown Vic I have them cheap white black in. As they say nothing on the road now is as roomy safe and economical. Lot of Crown Vic cop cars too Many lo miles as they are starting to replace executive unmarked ones now.

Those Taurus' will never begin to compare with the RWD Ford products, but.... hey, it's a free set of wheels!
