As Seen on Craigslist – 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham

If you thought last week’s car had a mouthful of a name, this week’s Goodfellas set piece goes and one-ups it with the classic “Brougham” moniker.   I can’t imagine anyone wanting a 500 cubic-inch, brown – ahem “Rosewood” – land yacht in today’s $3.50 gas world, but here we are, at an asking price of nearly $12k.  That said, I’m really only featuring this car because of the upholstery.  If I can quote from the full ad (which I suggest you check out), the “Rosewood Monticello velour” waits to caress your backside while you – get this – put your feet up on the rear carpeted footrests.  Vinny the Bull approves.  Impress all your wiseguy buddies with this behemoth, just watch out for those FBI helicopters.

I would have had this post up a half -hour earlier, but I can’t stop staring at the pattern in those seats.  I swear I saw Ringo Starr’s face in the pattern after ten minutes.
