How do you put a station in the memory? Is this the factory radio? Delco 2000 series? Is it the kind that has the volume knob above the tune knob? Or is the volume on the left of the display and the tune on the right?

There should be a button past your radio presets..that should be the "set" button.

DUH.....Sorry, I was thinking the later Delco 2000 series radios, the radio was introduced in 1984 in Cadillacs, and the early ones do have the "pull" style memory buttons.

Nice Eldo...Is it a Biarritz? I have a 1978 Biarritz myself.

No pics yet.....I might get around to it...


I agree 1979 to 1985 Eldorados are very nice cars, I prefer the 1979 and 80 versions, with either the Fuel Injected Oldsmobile gas 350 or the new for 1980 Cadillac 368/6.0 lire V8, before the 4-6-8 incident of 1981, and before the small aluminum 4100 V8 from 1982. Nothing wrong with the 4100, I just like the bigger motors.

The 1979-1985 Eldorados are unique, they were the 1st cars to combine, front wheel drive, 4 wheel independent suspension, 4 wheel disc brakes, fuel injection and automatic load leveling in one car!

I do love the 1971 to 1978 "showboat" Eldorados, these are possibly some of the largest, most plush and opulent 2 door cars ever made. There is something cool about a coupe that is larger than a Suburban. B)

Yeah....Robert DeNiro, as Casino manager, Sam "Ace" Rothstein drives a series of Eldorados, from the 1981 model that gets blown up..ouch..to a 1967 model in when he drives up to the casino...a 1973 model in the middle...a then a couple of 1977 and 1978 Biarritz "showboats", then a champagne colored downsized model, which I think is the same one that gets blown up.

I do like the scene where he drives up to the house that he buys for Sharon Stone.....in a copper colored 1977 Biarritz, the car, the house, the furniture, and the clothes....that one of the reasons that Scorcese is still one of my favorites......He is great at capturing an era or a year.
