I personally think the big Cadillacs were at their apogee from 1967 through 1970.
Things started to decline in 1971 with the advent of the low compression engines and smog impedimentia on them (California cars being the worst) but I liked the 1971-1973 restyle a lot, especially on the 2 and 4 door de Villes.
But by 1974 they were strangling on their emissions equipment, got about 6 mpg in their worst iteration, and had no power, were huge and whale like, and ugly, (even the TALISMAN editions.)
The 1977-1979 coupe de villes were a temporary step in the right direction, as were the 1992-1996 Broughams with the detuned Vette 350 engines but everything else on offer was crap.
