I sure wished they made the Eldorado RWD in these years, I would have been a very nice car.

The other thing I wished Cadillac made stock was a 500 or even a 425 powered A or G-body. I think it would have made muscle car history.

The Riviera was a Cadillac designed car.
It would have been close to mid size... Cadillac let Buick have the
car because of Buicks money problems

Sadly garbage motors made every effort possible to crush any aftermarket
or high performance stuff for the 5200 engine family and that is no
Coincidence !!

They did nothin of the sort prior to that and that makes it crystal clear..
They would never have allowed a so called muscle car size Cadillac
cause it would have CRUSHED their little baby chebberony baloney junk...

Our Muscle cars are 5000 lbs and the fact is just a good dual exhaust a properly
tuned qjet and not the 5* at 1000 rpm 20* total bullshit detune from hell curve
but a actual NORMAL igniton timing curve makes a 68-70 Cdv or 68-70 Eldo
Competitive with and faster than a whole heck of alot of those muscle cars..
Especially if you find one that had a tow package gear with posi rear or final drive

Danny Koker from Counting Cars stated
"The 69 Coupe Deville was known as a Muscle car in a Tuxedo"

A 210" 4100 lb Riviera with a high compression 500
(Iam talkin 11.7 to 1 like the chebbys ) decent muscle car cam good intake
and a real carb and decent gear would have Smoked 95% of the
best muscle cars..Let alone if they had used some of the experimental
Aluminum HEADS and matching intake that I seen in person on a engineers
70 Cdv convertable

Look at what the ole Cadillac engineers snuck by those assholes
as it is !!

By a muscle car cam I mean take this 69 Camaro #140 factory spec cam


From Team Camaro (My GM document differs on the lift.)
Standard 302 (30-30) cam, P/N 3849346
Casting #3849347
254 duration @ .050" (intake & exhaust)
.485" lift (with 1.5 rockers)
114 deg. lobe separation
Exhaust Max lift @ 116 deg. BTDC
Intake Max lift @ 112 deg. ATDC

Thats a factory 302 cheeber cam


Now put that in a 500 with 11.5 to 1 and 1.72 rockers...most know
what a cam that duration does for us !! Isnt that amazing..
The cam manufactuters are spec ing (JUNK) cams for 500's with 210@.05
