Can it be that The General has been Brougham-less for 17 long years now? Here’s a reminder of what Cadillacs were like when the postwar Cadillac-buyer demographic (i.e., those old enough to remember Prohibition) remained just barely young enough to buy new cars.

Junkyard Find: 1988 Cadillac Brougham d’Elegance http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2012/07/junkyard-find-1988-cadillac-brougham-delegance/ http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2012/07/junkyard-find-1988-cadillac-brougham-delegance/#comments Thu, 26 Jul 2012 13:00:55 +0000 http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/?p=454240 I admit it: I’m suffering from a silly infatuation with Broughamness. Every American car manufacturer (and a few Japanese ones) slapped Brougham emblems on a wide variety of vehicles during the Brougham Era, which we’ll call 1968 through 1992, and the last hurrah for Detroit Broughams was the car that I found in a Denver self-serve wrecking yard yesterday.
In 1987, Cadillac decided to remove the Fleetwood name from its big rear-wheel-drive ocean liners and simply dubbed the car the Cadillac Brougham.
At first glance, I thought I was looking at an early 1970s product here.
You wouldn’t have seen a Chevy 305 engine in a proper Early Malaise Era Cadillac, though.
I’m pretty sure this car has more marque emblems than any built before or since. I gave up counting after I got to 15.
