Well hello everyone! I've been gone for a while, last year I decided to go to college finally and attended UTI in Illinois. Graduated, fun times. So I decided to go pick up the Cadillac, poor thing had been sitting on jack-stands for a year. Fired up like it never even happened. Driving it home after a year, felt like a dream. Then new problems. Driving to a car show, started billowing oil smoke out of the right bank. Little bit of searching piston #5 is the only oily one, only when at operating temperature and it only seems like a valve seal. No biggie, I hope. Then I find the tires have given up, they had no cracking last year, I even placed it in the air to make sure. But, they have become unsafe and they need to replaced. But good news, while I'm still waiting for the original hood to get straightened. I got a tip about a yard having another, as you can see, about the only good panel left. It fits, but being the wrong year the fronts a little different. But, until I get the right one back, I need something "Hoodish" Been busting my back on my dad's car putting all the power options on and getting ready to change the transmission, no time for my car yet. More to come. Much, much more.
