I have been reading lots of posts on the HAMB this year and working on my Olds a little. Lots of things get in the way such as this! The other day I was doing some work in a neighborhood and spotted this beauty stashed in back of a garage. You could not see it from the road so no one probably knew it was there all those years except for neighbors. I kept my cool which was hard because this is the car that got me into cars when I was a kid! I went back on Saturday and knocked on the door. I was greeted by a woman who went and got her father who apparently used to drive this thing back in the day. He came out and showed me the car. He didnt' know how long it had been parked there, he just said "years". I could tell from talking to him it may have been parked in the '80s but could have been the '70s.. he found the title and it shows he titled in in 1976.. he said the transmission was slipping and thats why he parked it behind the garage. I was disapointed at the condition when I viewed it up close but over the following days I started to think, wait a second.. thats a '59 Cadillac coupe and I've ALWAYS wanted one, since I was 7 years old anyway. So I called the owner back and I offered $1,000. He thought about it for a few seconds and said sure. So I tried to contain myself the rest of the week and went back the following Saturday and put tires and wheels on it and got a local wrecker to drag it back to my house where I pressure washed it. I have chrome steel wheels ordered for it already just so I can legally post in the customs forum. Plus, you rarely see one of these that doesn't have whitewalls and the original wheel covers other than the occasional bizzare street rod, so I think it will be cool to make it a mild custom rather than go the full restoration route. Now that I have it back in my shop, I can see its really not that bad, he had plastic covering the ground under it and there are small holes here and there on the floors and trunk pans, but no big issues. I want to hear what you guys think!
