The year was 1978 when this chariot, (with its V-8, 425 cubic inch engine) roared on the open road! This Detroit behemoth in all of its splendor hugged corners as the custom car of choice during the Superfly era.
I don’t pretend to be a huge classic car guy, or claim that I experience the Biarritz its glory, but I can attest to its beauty based on the images I have seen online. I found this car living out its life next to the railroad tracks in Waldorf Maryland. In my opinion, not to exaggerate, she’s just as interesting as she has ever been. (Says this artsy photographer!)
Apparently, there were only 2000 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz manufactured! It was thought to have been a future collector item, so people acquired them as an investment. With that in mind, you can find them on the market with considerably low mileage considering how old they are. The price, however, did not mature as expected. In fact, they cost just about what they cost when they left the showroom floor.
Let me know if you have ever driven one of these bad boys, or what you think about the images in general.
