Well I loved mine. 60, 67, 72 and 78. Two were ragtops. Had a 78 New Yorker as well and actually felt it drove nicer than the 78 Cad.

Ok Spence, I'll play - my wallet ain't big enuff for tumbleweed - only cobwebs and ious.

I bought this '60 Coupe from your brother Trev in 1983 (over quaerter of a century!) Was the one sat at Pat Cuss's in Shortlands. Had it a while and then sold to Micetich - the car of his dreams - was for sale next day!!!
The kids in the first pic insisted on their photo being taken. Wonder if any of 'em got hooked on Caddies.

Cool pics:tup:

I wonder where it is now? I notice it's missing its side trim on both sides so had pobably seen some action.

I remember it well, I never knew it had 57 Cad caps on it though, or did you put them on it....

It was also rumoured to have once been owned by the oil heir " Paul Getty ", and NOT the one with the 59 Chevy :pmsl:

Look at all the variations for 1959:



Shame they can't make cars in the same way these days

Hey Spence, the sombreros belonged to Mick Monti - Trev put them on as a temporary measure. Wonder if he ever got 'em back? I think Trev sold the reg no. too - it just took a long time to change over to a new reg.

Ok, they must be the 57 Caps that are now on Trev's Chopped 50 Mercury :D
