Cadillac Seville

Drive By Shootings: Uncle Bob, What THE Hell Were You Thinking?

What the hell was wrong with us in the late 70s?

And this – the Cadillac Seville v. 2.0 (introduced for Model Year 1980)

  • fake rims
  • Fake engines – up to 145 hp from your choice of innocuous corporate engines, or the famed fake diesel (converted from a gas 350) or V8/6/4
  • fake leather inside (eventually leading to the term “leather seating surfaces,” instead of “leather seats”)
  • Fake convertible roof (thank the 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V for making this seem OK)
  • and finally – Fake-ass fake Daimler fake trunk.

Uncle Bob, What THE Hell Were You Thinking?

This is your dream car? Are you f***ing kidding me?

OK, this end looks like a Cadillac

Wait what?  Is this the 50s?

Swear to god, some UPS truck sat on the rear of a Riviera to make this look

The worst part is that I am oddly attracted to this atrocity.  I feel so dirty.
