Eldorado sold


Recommended Posts

I sold my '97 Eldorado a few weeks back. After advertising on craigslist for quite some time I practically gave it away to some fellow who's trying to flip it. His interest was the first and only bite I had. The economy in Tampa Bay is in tough shape and more so for older Cadillacs.

I'm not sorry to see it go. And it was a real PIA moving it around the garage and driveway.

I'll remain with Caddyinfo - you're a great bunch of guys that I wish to continue to be part of. My son still has his '03 STS...

The economy's pretty much in the dumper, but the primary problem with Northstar Cadillacs is the headgasket/headbolt problem - they have a terrible reputation. None of the dealers in the Tampa area would even look at when I told them it was a '97. I was only able to sell mine because I could prove that it had been Timserted. $1,600.00. That's all I could get for it. And I only got that because I had taken excellent care of the paint and interior and had Timeserted it. Northstar Cadillacs have a reputation for major problems. And let's face it; mine was a total s**tbox. I loved my Eldorado once upon a time but after my headbolt problem it totally fell apart.

I finally took it off the road after a "96 Jaguar XJ6 Vanden Plas fell in my lap.
