    These tail lights are bad ass and are used quite often on all kinds of cars & trucks. Some are very well done and some aren't, but still cool cause it's a 59 Cadillac light! They make repop lenses in red, orange and clear so possibilities are infinite!

    Let's see some pics of either well use or poor use, of your own or others you've seen.

    I will start it off with mine, I cut the lense and used only the tip for a very subtle change. You probably wouldnt even realize its done if you don't own a 62 or just know the 62 well.

    grabbed this from rikster's site.
    the original predicta used 59 cad lenses painted white for the front and rear grilles.

    Here's some '59 Caddy taillights you've never seen...hand blown glass from www. Dichrome.com...and they can even custom build a set for the taillights for that '62 as well...

    wow those are incredible! Never thought the 59 light could be improved on.

    I bet they could make a killer hand blown shift knob too!

    Look at the site, thats mainly what they do.

    I dont care for their shift knobs though, too hippy looking for me.

    and as for the "hippy," well, to each his own...he can kustom build one to your specifications, size, shape and color...

    Great photo! I like the way the drive in lights match and bring out the color of the tailights.
    Who was the photographer?
