My Favorite Car: '90 Cadillac Allante, Fritz Evans, 68, Largo

'90 Cadillac Allante

In 1992, I had just ordered and received a new Buick Regal with everything I wanted on it. It was beautiful. A few months later, an attorney who worked in the building where my office was located advertised the sale of his 1990 Pearlescent Cadillac Allante. The price was exceptionally good, actually less than half the original price, with very low mileage. I immediately put my new Buick up for sale and it sold the next day. I called him and bought his Allante the same day. It was "my dream car" for many years until I decided to sell it. Now, I can "sense" an Allante that is anywhere near me . . . even before I see it. I would still like to have the 1993 Allante, which was the last year they made them.
