2000 Grand Nationals
photos by Ed Cholakian

The Rhode Island Grand National in Warwick came on one of the wettest weekends of a very cool and rainy summer in New England.

 Fortunately, the big car show came off between thunder storms.

One of the hottest categories of Cadillac collectibles these days are funeral cars. Last year a 1940 carved-side stole the show in Santa Claire. This year, in Warwick, a 1949 Superior Landaulet drew more stares than a gold clad goddess.

To encourage more participation by professional car owners, the CLC Board may soon establish a separate class for ambulances, flower cars, and hearses.

The west coast was represented by Ed Cholakian from "All Cadillacs of the Forties".  Ed said that he had a great time despite the weather and was impressed with the turnout of Cadillac and LaSalle enthusiats. If anyone would like a Grand National T-shirt from 1999 and 2000, all sizes are still available for $10.00.  Just call Ed at 1-800-805-1147.

The quality of cars were exceptional. Almost every model was represented in this show.  The Crowne Plaza hotel was a great site  for this years event.  The cars were displayed on a large grass area providing a beautiful setting.
