Default Pic : 1991 Caddy Brougham + 1996 Fleetwood

1991 Cadillac Brougham

Specifications
Length : 18.5 ft
Width : 6.375 ft
Height : 4.725 ft
Wheelbase : 10.125 ft

When it comes to "If its Big and Black, its a Cadillac" cars, i'm sure no one would be interested in ceecee's and bhp's. Instead, the only detail of the car anyone wud be interested in is the overall dimensions. And havin the BIG Caddys dimensions in millimeters or inches wud mean grave injustice to the car. Hence the dimensions in "ft".

Read in ACI long back that a white Caddy Brougham was imported into India by AmerIndia car rental group. The car was lying in the docks for 9 months after it was cleared. ACI had said then that this is just one of its kind in India. But theres one here too. And that too a BIG and BLACK one. Thats the way the Caddy shud be. Big and Black. What you say?? I have a pic of this car. Will put it up tomorrow. Till then enjoy this.

P.S. : At 18.5 ft, I guess this car holds the record for being the Loooooooongest car [stock, not limo] in Bombay.

Well, there's a black Cadillac Brougham which belongs to the guy who's bunglow is situated next to my building. When it moves that car looks like it's gliding. Pretty quiet too.

Right Rehaan. The bunglow next to my place belongs to none other than the Wadia family.
It's been ages since I saw the Ambanis' Cadillac. I think that was a Seville.

Cadillacs are at par with the best Europe has to offer both in terms of luxury as well as technology.the 1977 cadillac fleetwood had cruise control...imagine how inferior our domestic automobile industy is.

This particular caddy had red interiors. Dont most of them have red interiors?? Also anybody has any idea on the significance/insignificance of the name "Brougham" on Caddys, Chevrolets and even Buick's i guess.
And this cars wide enough to seat 3 people in the front and back. And if its India, u cud squeeze in 2 more
