Here is my big car, a 1995 Cadillac Fleetwood, 64K miles AZ car. LT1 350 engine.
It just glides down the road.

These are the last of the body on frame RWD Cadillacs. Very smooth ride, and quiet. It has 260HP, it is the same engine that GM used in the 94-96 Roadmaster, and Impala SS.

That's a beautiful Fleetwood. I have a 1991 Fleetwood and it rides like it's on air.

No complaints from the passengers.

I love the front view on the 91, Cad got it right with the headlights and grill.
I have looked at some Hearses, but my wife would never ride in one!
Have seen guys swap-meeting out of one.

My first car was a 1981 Dodge Mirada CMX with a 225 c.i. Slant Six. It wasn't fast, but it was smooth. It was only six inches shorter than the 1986 Suburban that replaced it and the 2008 Silverado that I have now!

Not too old (1998), but you don't see Olds Auroras very often.

My wife had the same reaction. "You bought a what!"

Then she drove it. Now she loves it. It is handy if you want to haul something large and want to keep it secure. I can lock cargo in the hearse where as the back of my truck is wide open. People can steal stuff if I'm making multiple stops. And I can put my dogs in back and not worry about them.

I stopped at the market with my 90 lb. German Shepherd in back. (I had to take him in for his shots) And when I came out there were 2 women looking at my car.

It was hilarious to see them jump back when my dog stuck his face through the curtains and went ballistic. They didn't expect that.

And when I took it in for service. The mechanic said it creeped him out. I told him "Nobody ever died in a hearse".

"Nobody ever died in a hearse!" But they're all dying to get into one!

Re: sweet huge cars, 2 or 4 door, gm, ford, anything goes, lets see some pics

Here's a 70 Newport I have that is the donor for a project car I'm getting. This car is one of 3 built that had the 440HP engine. The guy I got the car from knows the original owner and the story goes that the man was a well known drag racer. This car was ordered with all the go fast goodies but with luxury in mind. It's kind of a shame it has a rusted out rh sub frame but too bad because I need the heart of it for the other project.

That 61 Fury is one of my all time favorite cars.

And Vince's Spaghetti is pretty darn good.

In front of Vince's is a perfect setting for that car.

Then came '62 for the Polara.
