Cadillac


I have a soft spot for big old Cadillacs so I couldn't resist a snap of this beauty at the end of a dead end street. I know, I know, they represent over-consumption and all that but hey, my dad had one and when he passed, it came to me. It was a triple black '76 Coupe deVille and it's hood was the single largest piece of sheet steel ever used on an American passenger vehicle. Driving it was like driving your living room.

"...like driving your living room!" Haaahahaha! That is just too funny, Victor. I love finding old cars and old trucks to photograph. Very appropriate in B/W.

And you, a good Buddhist. But I understand. What was that song from when we were young and dumb - Doo wop / shang a lang / I want a gold Cadillac. I think that's where the term for the musical style "doo wop" came from.

Them big ole gas guzzlers were a fun cruise down mainstreet though. MB
