Is it blocking the driveway? or are you able to get out with another car?

 Nope none there. The bracket spans the holes you see on the frame, the control are support and continues back to the frame.

When I get a chance I'll look into the parts build list.  I wonder if that bracket is used on the sedans.

I suspect it's a RWD C/D-car structural enhancement over the B-cars, similar to the extra bracing in the trunk area.

 I remember these brackets on 1977 and later Impala/Caprices. It had to ne removed to get the starter out.

It's the middle car. Can't get my Fleetwood out.
 
 I connected the jumper wire to the battery and got fuel pressure.
 It's showing E12 and E52. Both ignition codes. Could be a bad ground, bad pickup coil or bad ECM.

I found out the problem with the 93.
It's the VATS system. Looks like It will have to be by passed.

Because I haven't driven the Eldorado very much this year I was going cover it up early for the winter but with this run of warm weather
I've been putting some miles on instead but it really needs to get out on the highway. The only driving I've done was just around the
neighbourhood plus a failed attempt for a  trip up to Orangeville. I had gone maybe 15 miles from home when the alternator belt broke
just as I got onto the 407 in Burlington. I was able to get back home just as the battery was running out of power to keep the engine
running. I had a new belt put on and have been using the car instead of my Buick Encore.

Put the 94 in storage yesterday.
 As I was pulling into the barn steam started coming from under the hood. It blew a hole in the upper radiator hose and I noticed oil in the coolant, but no coolant in the oil.
I'm praying that its coming from the oil cooler in the radiator.
 I did put a new radiator in last year.
