I'd love to see some photos of the car!

To post pictures of items not related to sleep apnea, please use an off-site photo hosting service rather than uploading an attachment here, then you may insert the image into your post, following the directions here. We're trying to conserve space on our server to control costs, plus I'm trying to control the size of backup files when I backup the forum software - it's getting kind of huge with all the attachments and such, so we're limiting non-apnea related attachments like this - but links or images hosted separate from Apnea Board are fine, of course!

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience!

Ich verstehe.

I use photobucket and use the [img] tag. Plus, car photos are best in Off-Topic area of the board.

rear of 1956 CDV you will note that Cadillac hid the fuel filling door in the driver-side taillight. Opens forward. They did not want to have a door in the fender breaking up the lines of the car

1958 Cadillac Eureka Flower Car - only one left in the world. Complete restoration. These cars were used by funeral homes to carry flowers from the mortuary to the grave-site, the casket rode underneath the stainless steel deck. From the windshield back, the car was entirely hand built. A Rolls Royce in 1958 cost about $9,000 these cars were over $12,000 only used by the very wealthy and gangsters.

Here is the 1958 Cadillac Derham Fleetwood Limousine - easily carried 8 people in comfort. The padded top was specially added by the Derham Coach Company and cost about 1/3rd what the car cost without it.

The previous owner said he had it on good authority that Marylin Monroe and JFK had an "encounter" in the back seat.

Fabulous collection. I pulled down the text out of quotes to comment.

I didn't know Cadillac had a 3, 2bbl engine. What carburetors were used? Strombergs?

I remember 1958 for the first year with 4 headlights. Initially, they were illegal under California Vehicle Code -- so they changed the code.

General Motors did the same with the 1956 Chevrolet. I recall there was a chrome bar one twisted to open the tail light filler hatch.

$12,000 was more than the average working man made per year in 1958. (So, was $9,000)

What a great auto barn. When you said you were going to adjust the brakes, I pictured you jacking up one wheel at a time and crawling underneath with a brake adjusting tool. My first car was a 1957 Ford (used) and I was under it many times. If only I had known that the self adjuster kits for later models, like the 1962 Ford Galaxy would have worked.

I have to sent these links to my buddy (since the 8th grade) who is a Studebaker fan.
He and I once put a 1949 Cadillac OHV V8 into a 1939 LaSalle.

I'm on the next flight to ATL; keep a cot in the car barn for me!

Mongo, the forum software truncates longer links, so in order to get the full link URL, you have to use the quote function and copy the links from there. If you just highlight and copy a forum post with truncated links (as you did in your post above), the linkies will be broken. Sad

And, I see they are indeed broken.
