    Speaking of which, I've noticed you're in Campbell yourself... Wherabouts in that area? I live in the blossom valley, just off of Almaden myself.

    I've never seen a Cadillac that looks like crap, that I didn't like. It's getting there just takes time and green.

    I'm in South San Jose, where 101 and 85 meet. I've taken the car to only a hand full of shows (strangers BBQ, Paso last year). Not too much time with two toddler and home projects.

    Here is the before and after of my daily. I know now that there are people who like to read maps, parked in the middle of a highway in a 65mph zone with no shoulder one foot past the gas station driveway and six feet before a turn lane. And don't forget the tahoe almost flipping to avoid him and the paint I traded with the guy next to me to try and avoid the two dark cycles and one light cycle of the hazzards I had the fortune of seeing. His car was a 2008 suburu forrester, now has a tail light six inches from the drivers seat. Lap belt only no harm to me or him. My car still runs and drives, with a little rubbing, but put down for now. Only hit him with the outside headlight, just cracked it and didn't hurt the other..they both still work. When I hit him it was like throwing a hammer through a hay field. It was fathers day and had spent my morning loading most of my hand tools and a bunch of big hammers and a few pry bars 3', 5' ,7' long to fix and regap as well as replace the radiator and straighten the core support of a friends trooper. He rolled into someone at a light. For free I fixed it...hmmm...kharma...nahhh. As I had the car towed to my shop I called for my family to meet me so we could go eat. Unloaded all my tools, then locked the car and left. Found out the next day someone broke into my car and stole..........................................
    4 mexican blankets,slated for use temp for the seats
    5 t shirts, some of them my shops shirts with my logo on them
    skateboard-under the blankets
    all the quarters out of the ashtray and the ash tray insert, how else were the going to carry the quarters, who has pockets these days right?
    and the thirty bucks behind the ashtray, emergency gas/beer fund
    Got 4500.00 from his insurance for his neglegence and kept the car too. Bought the black 66 for 2500.00 and has only 19k on the odo and really bad ass interior for original stock. Needs short block due to a dead cylinder and had the money too. Then the med insurance that said and aproved the emergency hysterectomy my wife had earlier this year wasn't covered after all. so no motor yet....kharma?.......who'd I kill?​
