YAK Car Pic of the Day

Even the copywriters in the marketing department weren’t sure about this 1976 Cadillac Sedan de Ville, as on the same brochure page they refer to it as both a “de Ville” and a “DeVille.” One thing for sure though, it was the last of the big Cadillacs, as in 1977 General Motors downsized all of their big cars, including the Caddy. The de Ville wasn’t the biggest car in the Cadillac corral though, as that distinction belonged to the Cadillac Limousine, which is not to be confused with the Fleetwood 75 nine-passenger sedan. Actually, they were both the same size, although the official specs list the nine-passenger sedan as being .2″ taller, while the limousine is 143 lbs. heavier. But they were both big. Big. This de Ville is currently letting the grass grow tall around it while waiting for a buyer in Wheatfield.
