  3. No A-hole. I got a really good deal on it. I knew the guy for years but it was so top secret the feds could learn from him.Seriously,he needed to move it to get a new garage door.I told him to get rollers.Would he ask me to help him? No. Just some old Cadillac in his garage. Once he saw my Fairlane he was very adamant as to my having his car. Check my Fairlane on my page to see why. The Ford is one of one.
     
  4. Just to clarify the last post, he was getting the door in '99.

    Wow, very nice. Sounds like its had some work done to it years ago (paint color change, intake) sny story behind that?
     
  6. Yes, yetiscustoms. Originally was blue. Single 4 barrell. I have the original intake to make everything the way it was.Plus an extra engine,trans and parts.I bought someones dreams about a Caddy.Now it is my job to preserve it. How many of us have had to pass the torch?
     
  7. I just found a car,knew it was a good one.Bought it and here it is.Plain & simple. Thank you all who appreciate it.
     
  8. Very nice. I think you might be able to get new wheel centers from one of
    the outfits that sells new reproduction style wire wheels. If you're not
    familiar with them, try looking on ebay or google something like Cadillac
    Wire Wheels.
     
  9. WOW. I like that chopped Caddy of yours.
     
  10. And Finkd,you may be the guy to paint my Fairlane. I really like your work.Just love the '60 Ford
     
  11. My buddy Jim up in the Northern suburbs is working on his, let us know if you have Hamb folks come by and check it out.

    I can just picture Dean Martin and Frankie rolling in this ride, drunk as hell, doing keybumps of coke, and looking for high-dollar call girls to snatch up on the streets of Vegas.

    What a pimp ride, totally legendary. Congrats!
