Default Tank

This is the new Cadillac I picked up the other day. Got it running and driving today. Had to order a new water pump because this one decided to rip the seal out of it and start throwing water everywhere. It will be getting air bagged and a new set of wheels and tires along with the front seat getting repaired. The interior is actually in really good shape other than the front seat where the stitching is coming apart.

If I had to garage that car I'd have to get rid of three of my little cars.

Nice find, lb!

I have a soft spot for old Cadillacs, when they were the class of the class and built like a frickin' battleship!

Sorry to hijack, but you touched a nerve. I had two wealthy uncles who loved their Cadillacs, each having five or six of them at a time... late sixties, early seventies, late seventies, early eighties...

So, one of my cousins decided to take one of the (forbidden) Cadillacs for a rip past his high school and his older brother described the event as this...

"Hal (then under age) comes tearing down 27th, trailing tire smoke, hammer down and blows by the school at terminal velocity... five thousand pounds of glass and steel went by like a comet... fast as it was, I could see Hal had the wheel in one hand and a twister in the other."
