Car Facts: 

     My father is the original and sole owner. He bought the Cadillac in January of ’55.  

It has only 9,700 miles on it! 

     I used to work on the car with my dad, and I vaguely remember the big bound blue manuals.  He loved working on it himself, he always said these new modern cars, you can’t get anywhere in the engine compartment, it’s all computers, etc., etc. 

      My father is no longer able to drive this beautiful Cadillac, but of course as it happens, now I’ve fallen in love with the car… I realized that this car is like a portal to people’s memories, and they react very strongly to it.  It’s been a delight to see the reactions.  My mother is thrilled to see me keep it, and keep it for her enjoyment (we’ve been cruising up to Malibu for lunches).  I’m at the beginning of a home remodel, and of course we’re already factoring in a very very long garage for this car. 

     The car show in El Segundo was our first, I thought my mom would get a kick out of it and enjoy the audience for her stories.

      Enjoy the pictures, you can see why my father was so proud as I am.
