Classic look, but impractical. BEWARE!

1993 Cadillac Allante 2dr Convertible
I hear that new parts for the Cadillac Allante body are out of production, and no plans are being made to produce more since so few Allantes were ever manufactured. If you buy an Allante and have any trouble with it in a wreck or with normal use, you may be out of luck when it comes to finding replacement parts for the body. The Allante is a classic beauty, but it was not a well-thought-out car. It is very impractical, and the interior pieces are of cheap plastic that do not withstand wear. The '93 Allante is the best one to own. Great power/performance! GM put the right powertrain and transaxle in it,but the car is overly-complicated and the computer systems are not reliable.
32 valve Northstar V8 power, great handling and control, classic,timeless beauty that rivals the 1990-1998 Merc- Benz 500SL and the 1950's and 1960's Merc-Benz convertibles.
Cadillac should have better planned this car and built more of them. Its electronic control systems are highly advanced for its year of production, but they were untested and unreliable when the car left the factory. The interior,while attractive,is comprised of cheap parts that do not wear well.
