Brougham Of The Day: Pontiac Parisienne Brougham!

Detroit had a love affair with the Brougham that lasted from the 1950s through the 1990s, and General Motors had some of the best Broughams of all! » 8/08/10 11:00am 8/08/10 11:00am

Remember When Automakers Encouraged Drinking And Driving?

Fifty years ago, the world was a very different place. Proof? This image of a '57 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham's glovebox was a General Motors PR shot. My, how times have changed. Photo Credit: GM » 5/14/10 9:00am 5/14/10 9:00am

The 1973 Ford LTD Brougham: Just Like The Jaguar XJ6!

Back in 1973, a brand-new XJ6 listed at about $9,500. For that price you got 150 horsepower, four-wheel disc brakes, Lucas Electrics, and plenty of sophistication. For less than half that price, you could have a 154-horse LTD Brougham! » 4/25/10 11:00am 4/25/10 11:00am

Eleganté Embléms: Detroit Gets Classy

I tell you what, my latest junkyard haul has me considering a name change to Brougham E. Landau (the E stands for Eleganté, with the accent). » 7/19/09 3:30pm 7/19/09 3:30pm

Cadillac Eldorado Brougham

Well, you've done it again - voted into the Jalopnik Fantasy Garage another glass-and-steel piece of history which some, but not all, agree would make for a great addition: the Lotus Eleven. Last week saw no progress towards filling the garage due to Geneva Motor Show shenanigans, but that just gave us some extra time… » 3/11/08 12:40pm 3/11/08 12:40pm
