Penske Cadillac & LaSalle Show

A tribute to the ’59 Cadillac

by Sheri Roberts

Our final event of the year was held on November  9, 2008 at Penske Cadillac in Torrance.  Blustering cold Santa Ana winds gave way to a crisp and clear sunny day.

Calvin had worked very closely with Reed Amiri and Tom Bowen at Penske and was finally seeing months of hard work paying off as he witnessed one gorgeous classic Cadillac after another arrive at the event. 

Ray Malzo had his ’59 coupe, Chris Sabatino his ’59 convertible, Jim Davidson his ’59 sedan,  Chris Baptise his ’59 coupe, and an original ’59 convertible graciously on loan for the day from the El Segundo Driving Museum.

Time came for the awards and special presentations.  Calvin presented each ’59 owner with a framed reproduction of the original 1959 Cadillac print ads.  Craig Chally did a fantastic job putting together these one-of-a-kind plaques.  Calvin then presented custom made watches showing a ’59 caddy on the watch face.  It brought instant smiles of pride and appreciation to all the ’59 owners.

After the trophies were handed out Calvin surprised us all with a personal award from himself to all CLC board members, and some special members of the Unique Cadillac Club who helped him out with this event.

After the raffle and the 50/50 was drawn, the engines began to roar.  One by one I watched everyone pull out of the lot with huge smiles on their faces.  The day was a wonderful success.

 A special “thank you” once again to Calvin and his team who made this day rock….
