Well,once in a while something intresting pops up....a rare Caddy 53 Eldorado convertible,the first one....this car has an interesting story and luckily still survives...Was abandoned in a werehouse for long time and totally forgotten..the actual owner bought it unseen or almost....Only part of the rear end was visible and he wanted a Caddy,so the previous ower asked peanuts for it and the actual owner bought it...when they drag it out he realized it was a 53 Eldo,bingo!!That was more than 25 years ago anyway...Probably driven twice in all this time and the guy is already old,with the hope that 1 day will restore it...it will never happen,so im waitin my turn on this one....of of these days,perhaps!!

Just a normal cruise in DF and you bet you can always see some new stuff around sittin in the streets...mind you,nowadays there is a govermental program against not registed cars layin around...they tow em away pretty quick! And to go find em in the police car corral is a game too...it cost some good bucks to take it out too...
That's why there are not many old cars sittin abandoned in DF anymore,at list not like 5 and more years ago...10 years ago this place was almost an open space junkyard!!

Jeeze Sled, you really find the cool shit don't you!

Just out of curiosity, how far have you shipped cars before?You must have had some overseas customers I would think.
