Default Pics: Cadillac Deville in Mumbai

Hey,

First a couple of pictures,






Now I don't know what make etc. this cadillac is (Someone can shed some more light on this?), but one fine morning I found it in my garage! And my mom tells me that it is my dad's friend's who wants to keep it here for a while. LOL

First chance I get, I take it for a spin and believe me it flies. It took a little getting used to though as it is a Left Hand Drive. Anyway drove it on the Palm Beach Road and it was the smoothest thing I have ever driven..

Anyway I'll post more Pix/Details if people are interested. Let me know what you guys think of it..

Btw, it is Delhi registered

Thats a Cadillac DeVille. A similar one is owned by filmstar Sanjay Khan (an article is already published in Autocar "Me and My Car").

The DeVille...horrid car...to drive. I have had the pleasure of sitting in one. Luxury-wise, very good. Driving-wise....horrid.

Hey wildthings,
Yes we would definitely want more pics of the Caddy.

Here's another DeVille spooted a few years back in Santacruz.

@V12 if I am not wrong that red Caddy is not a Deville. Its either an STS (Seville Touring Sedan) or an Eldorado.

all cadillac designs have a distinctive charm and charisma to itselves.its something unexplicable in words.can only be felt.looking at one,takes you to a different era and a different class of society.very american.hollywood style.

Well neat find, beside the number plate I can see something written in Arabic think could be imported from "Dubai", just a wild guess.

Any way where in navi Mum do you stay?
