  8. Good job. Glad you were able to grab all those before they went into the shredder. Smart move not asking ahead of time. Better to beg forgiveness than ask permission.
    Grandpa was a Cadillac man after the war. He had a 52 extended deck that he talked about for decades after. He didn't buy a 59 because they were too gaudy for him..

    Good on you for saving the collection and keeping Mr. Pelter's Cadillac spirit going!
    You also ended up with a nice daily - and a shot in WSJ, no less!
    Maybe next stop is a feature in TRJ?

    cheers, Ray

    I suppose you probably had to give up the pool as storage?

  16. Very nice to see someone with a great passion for the old Caddys. Most of them on the east coast are far rustier than the cars out west.

    You are the keeper of the ''flame'', Robert would be proud!
    Just don't become a hoarder, because then you might end up on TV!
    Keep up the good work.

    Hi Dave,
    Yes, you can barely see the 5th car to the right of the black trunk. There were actually 8 packed in there like sardines, I'm starting to get it cleaned out a bit now....
