1961 Cadillac

50th Anniversary


Words by Craig Chally, Pictures by Craig Chally & Calvin Jones

     What do you call 71 Cadillacs and 2 LaSalles?  The Southern California CLC’s Fourth Annual Dealer Show at Penske Cadillac, of course! 

     Members of the SoCal CLC joined with members of the Unique Cadillac Club, as well as members of the Cadillac Kings from their LA, Orange County, and San Diego chapters, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1961 Cadillac. 

     From grandly restored and lovingly preserved original cars, to Cadillacs fully customized to their owners’ tastes, the show held something for everyone. 

     Ten 1961 Cadillacs came to mark their golden anniversary, including Frank Burns’s stunning blue Coupe de Ville, Jay and Betsy Davenport’s time capsule Sedan de Ville, and Lane Langley’s show-stopping Series 62 Convertible. 

     The belle of the ball, though, was Ted Bower’s 1911 Model 30 Touring Car, which won best of show in a landslide decision.

     Special thanks to Calvin Jones for his tireless efforts to organize this event and make it a success year after year, and to the management and staff of Penske Cadillac for the gracious use of their facilities.
