Here is a pic of my 61 Cadillac cruiser
Wasn't talking about your car. I like what you've done and I respect that you're on a budget. There was a big name guy with big $$$ who sold his car to a "big" star who claims to have built it and the windows don't work. I was just saying that when people get all the hoopla about how well done their stuff is it should be well done. Again I wasnt blasting you man, sorry if it came off that way.
Here is my 1960 Cadillac Virgin, about 70% of the paint is original and she's all original inside as well.
Wrazed Wrong your 61 is beautiful !!
My 50 Caddy. Since this picture the body has been off the frame, the frame scrubbed and POR'd, brakes rebuilt in back, disk kit in front, complete floor pan replace, inner rear fenders patched, and body remounted. After all that, it still looks a lot like this picture.
Also having the motor rebuilt and painted. Should be running within the next couple weeks.
my 62 and 63.
both air bags. stock 390's and stock interior.

Here is a picture of my 53 Coupe DeVille that I'm working on. It has a 79 Camaro sub-frame with a 500 engine and shockwaves.
This is for all the Cadillac Cruising HAMBERS - "Cadillac Man"
I have posted a bunch of my Cads a million times so I will spare you...
BTT, anone else...?
Make it a million... and one...or two... post 'em...
Post your Cadilliacs we want to see them.........
OK I know I'll probably get blasted for posting this but Here is my new 57 Sedan DeVille (and yes Sedan...4 door) Just bought it off of the old flea-bay ($380.55) new paint, no drive train, brakes rebuild, frontend rebuilt....
anyone have a bumper and grille for cheap
The 57 is one of my favorite 57's, unfortunately its not mine.
62 is mine and I have posted pics before, but I figure why not?
Here is my 1950 61 series coupe (chop top). I've posted here before, but just took some more recent pictures. Been debating about selling the car, but of all people, my wife is trying to talk me out of it.
I'll cast my vote with your wife, that's a cool looking Caddy. I do understand the urge to sell and get something else. I had a fantastic '41 Ford Convertible, I just wanted something bigger and roomer. Is your Caddy a real convertible? Good luck with deciding what do with the Caddy.
My 56 Devill and 55 Flower Car. And a bad ASS 58 Meat.
I am a bit pre-mature posting here....But tomorrow we take possesion of our 19** caddy. We will be posting pics as soon as she is in the drive.
Rikster thats Jim's old caddy right? Is that a photoshop? i know it was painted, but i didnt know it was that far along...It looks awesome...
Man the new issue of Street Rodder just hit my desk at work, and I have to say that thing is too freakin bad ass. The lighting on the interior is so trick!
Now this is one fine coffin wagon very cool flames all your rides are very cool.
The 58's not mine,,, DAM !
my 66 coupe deville still (and probably always will be) under construction
my old 59 caddy with T bird interior<p>
It's now 4 votes to keep the caddy (wife, dad, cruiser, and neighbors telling me to keep it). I've only had a momentary lapse of judgenment because I saw a different project come up for sale (roadster). It sure is nice though to fit the wife and two kids in the car, I was just thinking of reducing space in the garage by getting a roadster.
Cruiser, to answer your question, the car was originally a hard top that the previous owner removed and trimmed the windshield by 3 or 4". He did a pretty good job cause most people think it's a true convertible. Although, if it were a true convertible I/he would of never did anything to detract from it's orignal condition. I've seen true convertibles go for over $100k.
I love this one. Previously owned by Gene Autry. Now in the hands of Pebble Beach Concourse Judge, Glen Mounger. Whew. What a beauty.
Your Caddy would look fantastic with a Carson top, you'll be able to keep your ladies happy and dry when it pours. Well, I guess the yes votes win this round. Good luck with the ride.
