So dissapointed...
« on: February 12, 2013, 02:22:06 PM »
I have been looking on and off now for over 6 months. 1968 is my year and I want an Eldo and/or Coupe Deville Vert. I just have not been able to find the right combination of colors and condition...and last nite I found this...

The exact car in the exact color combination that I want and, of course, its gone... growing up my uncle had the same car...could have been a 67...but that color combo...fair to say it left an impression...I want it bad... :-[

Hello Greg

I understand how you feel. Remain positive and the right one will come to you!
All good men own a Cadillac but great gentlemen drive a LaSalle. That is the consequence of success.

Yep, just be patient and don't settle for anything less than exactly what you want :-)

Don't feel too bad. They always look better in pictures. There will always be another one.

I know how you feel.

It took me 8 years of searching to eventually find the '72 Eldorado Convertible I was looking for.   It had to have the TrackMaster Brakes.

I missed it the first time it came up on ebay, then was the high bidder twice more, and finally got it for less than the sellers' reserve.

All I can say is "Be patient".

I do know of a pristine #2+ original '68 Coupe deVille with 21,000 miles that might be available. It is burgundy w/black roof with black leather. Not exactly what you're looking for but as I've said, it is absolutely mint original. The best '68 I've ever seen.

Patience, Grasshopper.  You will be rewarded! 

 ;D

Like others, I _finally_ got the 79 Seville I've been wanting to have in my collection....  since they were new!  And this one all but fell into my lap!

Keep looking!!
