This has been for sale for months. The price kept dropping, as low as $3500... but they just put a new windshield in. Has anyone looked at the car in person? I've wondered why it hasn't sold. If it was a bit closer to me and I could look at it first, I might be interested.

I am curious what you all think about how these cars are holding their age, to me the commercial glass Victoria's and Masterpieces of the '93-'96 era are looking their age a bit now, and the non commercial glass '93-'96 are REALLY looking their age.
But, everyone is different and views them differently...

They are starting to look their age. But to me, they still exude a more elegant presence over those of late. Especially the commercial glass cars. I also love how everything with an LT1 has a Corvette motor.

I still think they're the nicest looking coaches of the last 35 years. And from what I've been told the Corvette engine is much more reliable than the Northstar engine, that's my reason for wanting a mid-90s Masterpiece.

All I can say is I have both a 96 Masterpiece and a 96 Commercial Glass six door and get nothing but compliments and questions on the style of both. The Masterpiece was at an antique radio meet this last weekend hauling vintage radios at least twenty radio collectors complimented me on the coach and asked questions about it and pro cars in general. Beautiful,distinguished,dignified, magnificent,cool,what a ride,follow both from ordinary folks no talk of old or vintage. I do not think they are getting long in tooth.

I do agree with both statements. I had a '97 DeVille and the motor went south after 92k miles. I had it serviced regularly by the Caddy dealer in Ft. Walton beach. One day the the driver info center chimed in with "engine overheat. Stop car now." Blew a freeze plug right out of the block. These "Corvette" motors will last 300k+ with the right care.

Once again my two cents. The Lt-1 motor is great only draw back is opti spark and water pump. If water pump leaks it will take out opti spark distributer if not caught quickly. I owned sold and rebuilt about 500 94 to 96 Caprice cop cars in their time and they were far better than the fabeled Blues Mobiles. Fast great handling lots of room. The brougham was even better as it had the 12 bolt rear for the conversion cars with BIG drum rear brakes the cop cars had disc rear brakes that were troublesome. The 4L-60 trans requires top shelf fluid and service (screen gasket and oil change) about every 15K in Commercial cars due to weight. For those not interested in a hot rod the 93 Pro cars are the most reliable,dependable old fashioned throttle body 350 and the bullet proof 700R-4 trans 91 92 Roadmasters are the same except a few have 305 engines making them on the slug side. Fuel mileage is good on the NYC trip 17.2

You are correct about the Optispark. Been there done that.

Are those the factory installed drapes in that coach? They somewhat resemble a bad '80s prom dress!
