The big news in the automotive world this morning is that Cadillac will once again build a land yacht starting in 2015. I for one am very excited about this because while I don't think the XTS is a bad car, it doesn't hold up when pitted against the A8/S-Class/7-Series.
But what if you don't want to wait for Cadillac's modern interpretation of a living room on wheels? What if you miss the good 'ol days when Cadillac was simply raiding the spare parts bin at GM and adding some chrome here and a sofa there.
Well then man, have I got a list for you.
Revel in the glory of the fake wood on the dash! Fall to your knees in praise of those wire wheel covers! Worship at the temple of John F. Jack Jr.!
While you're looking at these, keep in mind what the rest of the world was building at the time, pretty fucking depressing. I don't know how GM made it through all those years building cars like these. Oh wait, that's right, they didn't they went bankrupt and we bailed them out.
These are the 10 Best Cadillac DeVilles you can buy right now!
1.) One owner, green, wires, whitewalls, what more do you want?
2.) Another one owner vehicle. Grey on grey, '92 "We really don't know where to go with this" styling, California car.
3.) Black with gold/whitewall wheel package, Bose CD AND cassette player, may include some G-Unit mixtapes.
4.) 1990 DeVille Coupe! The wire wheel covers, the vinyl top, the red interior, this thing has it all! Let's do some blow and throw change at homeless people!
5.) Ah shit, the party's over, Desert Storm, George Bush, grunge music. Throw a CB radio in the car, we'll get our jollies messing with truckers because that never ends badly.
6.) Fuck that! Party is back on people! My uncle left town for the weekend and I've got his '78 pussy magnet. Sure it'll only attract twice divorced Tri-State area moms with a pack a day habit but who cares, that's why god invented condoms!
7.) I have no jokes about this 2005 DeVille. It's a one owner Florida car that would make for pretty solid transportation...to church, the golf course or mortuary.
8.) Seller's note "Power antenna doesn't raise but radio works fine". Sure buddy, just keep telling yourself that, I'm sure your wife doesn't listen to other stations...
9.) Color matched velour interior, nuff said.
10.) Here's your reward for trucking through the first 9 listings. 1965 DeVille sedan with 25,000 mi. Thing was a barn find, apparently no rust, original paint, even has the original floor mats. I would actually buy this if I had a garage to keep it in, hope this car finds a good home.
