Contribute or just read & learn! Either is great.

What year/model of Caddy? A '73 Fleetwood with a 501?

1996 Eldorado and it is quite good on gas and don't expect to improve current mileage numbers much. You have far bigger challenge with the 73' w/500 cubes.

Not sure about the Fleetwood, but I'm reasonably certain a 73 Eldorado was Fuel Injected. If the Eldorado intake could be retrofitted on the Fleetwood you may have a chance of getting decent mileage out of it.

Man, a 1996 Eldorado....sweet ride. What color? Tell me it's that dark green color that I've never liked on any other vehicle. Is it the ETC or just a regular Eldorado (not that a regular Eldorado is anything to sneeze at!)?

How many miles on it?

You've got it right.

Your car looks great. I wanted to roll around in one of those for the longest time.
