What I Saw Today

So, I get a phone call from thejeepjunkie:

"Whatcha doing longroof?"

"Just finishing up my supervision of a countertop install. What about you jeepjunkie?"

Working on a 61 Cadillac Fleetwood."

"See you in 15," was this olelongrooffan's reply.

And I did.

A drop dead gorgeous piece of automotive history.
Like this one, that grille has more chrome than is on the entire olestationbus!!
Sorry to include this shot of this ole dreamboat without her skirt on.
The fins are not quite as radical as those on the 59 or the 60, but 8" fins nonetheless.
Here thejeepjunkie is pointing out something of relevance to the German owner. Seems he has this $15,000 pillarless hardtop sedan and a 68 Riviera here in the States. Back home he has a 61 Coupe de Ville. Not only that, see that brake drum to the left of thejeepjunkie? It is the same diameter as the wheels on my olestationbus.
Out of reverence to the owner, thejeepjunkie never even got behind the wheel.
And check out those lower fins!!!
Yeah, a beautiful ride, one I would like to have in my livery, but it seems I say that about dang near everything I see! But it is the truth!

And having a brother who hooks me up lets me

Celebrate Life.
