Hi all. Just signed up, figured I'd say hi and introduce. I've already found a lot of useful information on the site, thanks!
Name is Stijn (that would be Stein in less weird Dutch spelling), live in The Netherlands, Europe.
Last year I bought a matador red 64 Coupe Deville in the Portland OR area and roadtripped it to San Francisco port for shipping to Europe. The car arrived here a few weeks ago and I'm in the process of giving it some technical TLC (mainly brakes and other general maintenance) for it to pass European registration tech in a few weeks.
The roadtrip (long way round, through the parks) was amazing and I really fell in love with the old Caddy.
It's no show winner but it's unrestored, original and rustfree. Has a few 'senior parking' dings but nothing too bad. Engine is still matching to the car.
Well, I'll probably post a few questions here and there. Best regards from across the Atlantic - sorry to have abducted one of your classics to another continent but I promise it's in good hands :)

Like your American adventure and you great looking 64 CDV
Once you are exposed to these cars you could fall in love forever
The 64 convertible being my own favorite Cadillac of all time
Sure you will cause a fuss anyplace you go with that car in any country in the world
They cause a fuss anyplace you take them in America these day so anyplace out of the country has to be - OMG that Classic Antique Cadiillac is amazing !!!
American --classic iron --as it is known here and a lot of it ( metal )
Cadillac and Harley Davidson are refurred by that term here
Love when the Harley boys wave to ME when out and about --YES !
You are in the right place to learn --Anything you may need to know about these great cars
Do get a service manual for your year as you will find it truly priceless to repair and restore your great Classic
