2004 Cadillac Escalade Reviews, Specs and Prices | Cars.com. I have always loved old cars. Not really old, classic cars; but, cars in the sweet spot, like over 10 years old and less than 30 years old. I bought SWMBO an Escalade some years ago, and loved it. When she got new car fever, I gave her the trade in value plus some, and now am fixing it up as I have already restored my 1995 Mitsubishi, and my 2004 Cadillac DeVille. These cars are all analog; except for the digital diagnostic plug in; but, they are solidly built. It is a real hoot keeping them running well, and I really enjoy not having a car payment. Yes, I put money into them; but, they are fun to drive and I still spend less than I would on a new car. I suppose it is ironic that a tech head prefers cars without computers in them. But, at least I know nobody will be hacking my ride.
