What be this car?

Whether you've got a Tico or a Lexus, a Dailim or a Harley, this is the forum to discuss transport in Cambodia. Where to buy it, how much to pay and what to do when the wheels fall off.

What be this car?

Says in the advert it’s a Chevy Classic but that don’t exist. I thought it might be a Caprice but the lights are wrong.

Anyone?

It's a Caddy, not a Chevy. Not sure the model name.

But PSD is right, it's a Cadillac - if the listed year is to be believed it must be a Cadillac CTS - but it has vents under the wing mirrors from another model (coupe?)

Great advert! Wrong make and model!
At least he got the colour correct.

Thanks all.

I was going to respond with a post of a beautiful Chevrolet, but I couldn't really find much. I like a lot of American cars, especially those muscle cars, but most Chevrolets just look a bit lumpy and awkward.

I like any yank car pre 80s. The Caddy Eldorado Braugham for example.

The designers went a bit mental in the 80s and completely off their game in the 90s, even with legend cars like the Mustang and Camero. I won’t put a pics up because they’re too hideous.

There’s some amazing cars up at the condo with the plane on top in SHV. I must pop up again as he changes his cars often.
