"The porn part was directed towards that beautiful car Kevin, that thing definitely has some sexy lines. At this point of my life this is my porn! The toes on the other hand well..... hey we just gotta have a little fun. Thanks Joe"
"Hey Joe, with out Fleetwood, the timber inserts on the front door trims were badly faded. For over a year now, I just wipe them over weekly with O'Cedar wood oil and they are coming back pretty good. For the first few months, nothing…"
"Geez Clovis, you're a shocker. Now, to be truthful, I was nearly going to ask Joe if he was a Pom, but I thought no, that's a bit rude..... then you say he has camel toes.
Hey Joe, we always take Clovis to places twice, the second time to…"
"Love your color combo
Not a combination of color that is very common in our year cars --so it is special for that reason
Car is in very nice condition
Enjoy every minute you own and restore her

Thanks, Jason. Just bought the '64, and it will be delivered tomorrow or Friday from Palm Beach. The old girl will need some work, but has a pretty amazingly well-preserved original interior. Will need a lot of work on the engine bay, undercarriage, trunk, and some paint work...oh, and a top...LOL. The car was bought new by the Walgreen family, and owned by them until two years ago when the guy I bought it from got it. It seems the top was rarely down, thus the nice interior. I like other Cadillac's too, and have a '67 Eldorado (Capri Aqua slick top/Aqua leather), a '78 Seville (Riudoso Saddle Metallic slick top, Medium Saddle Leather), and a 2008 XLR-V (Black Raven/Ebony)
Yes, that's right. Looked pretty scruffy in the EBay listing, but I went down to Palm Beach to have a look. Very nice interior. Some paint issues and some surface rust on the undercarriage. Plus some kind of weird top that I've never seen before. Vinyl but with a coarse suede-like texture, plus painted top hard surfaces and a lining...also things I've never seen in this vintage of Cadillac. Paint is older Laquer with some issues, but not to horrible. Engine just rebuilt, brakes done, AC just done, everything works. Car drives beautifully. It came from the Walgreen family collection via the seller, who bought this and three other cars from Jim Walgreen a couple years ago.
What I enjoy most about old cars is that they can be restored to original condition, radically customized, or somewhere between those extremes, reflecting the owner's individual style. For my '63 Convertible, I want to achieve a mostly original look, with minor custom touches to make it clean, smooth, and low. This article is to share my experience in choosing and installing the suspension components to achieve a low stance and a comfortable ride.
Good Afternoon - my name is Chris and I'm new to the site (well ... officially; I've read a lot of your posts and am very impressed by the great advice and interest). I'm working on a very original '63 SDV Park Avenue and am attempting to remove the "Park Avenue" emblems in preparation for a repaint. Once I carefully removed the truck liner, I noticed that the studs are conical shaped and do not appear to have ever had a speed-nut, or some type of push clip ever installed. I have removed…
Our old Cadillacs have a pretty simple electrical system using an externally regulated alternator to keep the battery charged and run the accessories while driving. First appearing in 1963, the GM 10DN externally regulated alternator was a step up from the bulky generator used on the '62 and earlier. But newer, internally regulated alternators are now available that can output three times the current in the same size package. This article explains how I upgraded my charging system to a…
