I had to go downtown this morning.
Just north of the core there are many splendid examples of heritage buildings:
As well as many dreary examples of the 1960s and 1970s apartment blocks that replaced whole swaths of them:
Back to the topic at hand, this Cadillac parked under one of said dreary buildings caught my eye. It looks like it hasn’t moved in quite a while.
Not in ten years according to the license renewal sticker. Speaking of stickers, the CAA stickers on the GM warp-o-matic plastic panel are an indicator of an elderly owner.
In addition to the GM break-o-matic key hole cover shown above, this example also has the GM break-o-matic plastic bits behind the tail lights.
Maybe I’m being too harsh here, this poor Caddy’s location would make it an easy target for vandals.
A padded vinyl roof, a lot of dust, and a Sedan de Ville logo. This type was built from 1977-1984, it seems the changes are easier to spot from the front so I have no idea what year this is. Any ideas? I couldn’t get an interior shot due to the dust.
Now there’s an old school snow tire. All four tires held air, which I can’t imagine happening on it’s own over ten years so I’d guess that someone has been pumping them up occasionally.
I’m not much of a Cadillac person, but with a good wash this wouldn’t be completely terrible because it’s mostly been out of the elements. This car is definately unused, but not totally abandoned.
