What a screech! If the Caddy were not long enough, the stripes accentuate the lines. Nice artwork. Snappy looking tank! Thanks for finding this. Tom
Very cool. It’s not something you see every day, and it’s not overblown like some custom jobs on an old car would be.
One summer (about 1979) when I had my black 63 Cadillac Fleetwood sedan, the kid from next door I had grown up with got a silver-blue 61 Coupe DeVille. His father was an attorney and this came from an elderly client. That kid and I had traveled different paths starting around middle school and despite living next door to each other we hadn’t really interacted in a long time. But we had a sort of mini-bonding over those two old Cadillacs. I think of him every time I see a 61 2 door Cad.
I used to prefer the 62 coupes with the more formal roof, but these 61s have been growing on me for quite awhile now.
Extra points if the lake pipes are functional.
Captured this stock equivalent in downtown Santa Monica holiday traffic several years back. I remember the welcome change these cars represented when new.
