2005 Grand National
Hosted by Iowa CrossRoads Region
Des Moines, Iowa
August, 2005


The first meeting of the Iowa CrossRoads provisional pending region of the Cadillac & LaSalle Club was held July 31, 1999 at Pittman & Company, in Urbandale, IA. Jim Pittman spearheaded the initial meeting, where ten prospective members assembled and formed the Iowa CrossRoads Region of the Cadillac & LaSalle Club. Jim Pittman, director, has been a Cadillac owner since 1984. He is the proud owner of a 1956 Fleetwood Derham Sixty Series. His love for old Caddies prompted him to start a region for other Cadillac enthusiasts.

Due to the large turnout and participation of prospective region members, the Iowa CrossRoads Region was able to apply to be a pending provisional region of the National Cadillac & LaSalle Club. A membership vote took place at the January 2000 board meeting in Detroit. In Tuscan, January 2001, the Iowa CrossRoads Region was granted full membership and was given approval to host the 2005 Grand National. This was the first time in the history of the National Club that a new Region was granted full regional status on the first vote and on the second vote was awarded a Grand National.

Currently the Iowa CrossRoads Region has 24 members.  Here are some of the pictures of the beautiful cars that were display at the show.
