    That might be the best done Cadillac I've ever seen. It appears that the skirts and lowering are the only modifications from factory original, but apparently they are pretty close to perfect off the assembly line.

    I agree with ya that Caddy is way too kool.... Cadillac and Buick seem to leave the production line purrfect. That is why so many Kustom & Hot Rod guys use their parts. Can't afford one but lucky enough to find a donor.

    Anyone have any info on the b&w pic? A lot of similarities especially the use of the chevy/olds side trim combination

    Yeah definitely, and the overhang on the roof/windshield. The east coast thing was an antenna on each side in the quarters, this has one on each side in front fenders which is different

    Happy to see that chopped and sectioned '40 in a fairly recent photo, but oh, the crime of that flat black bumper....
