I did a little tutorial on the 63 right front ashtray.I saw in Jason's latest video where he mentions this as a bad design. From my experience, it's not a bad mechanical design but rather it's not an…Continue

Kurt,

   Yes, I was really bummed about the GN cancellation.  I was looking forward to getting together with the usual folks and the 63-64 guys and taking the 63 and my 32 to show.  The annual Keels and Wheels Concours was also postponed from May until October.  My 1932 All Weather Phaeton was invited to that one.  I've attached a couple of pictures of both cars.  The 63 has only 34k miles and would have been entered in the Primary and Preservation Classes. The 63 is  triple green (basildon).  Hope to see you soon.

Take care,

Ken Karrer

Hi Kurt, to tell the truth it's not Elmshorn, it's Neuendorf where I come from. This is exact half the way between Elmshorn and Glückstadt. But there are houndreds of Neuendorf in Germany so I decided to say Elmshorn as there is only one in Germany. If you are ever here again you're welcome.

Hi Kurt,

Food Cruise

Posted on January 28, 2015 at 1:39am 2 Comments

A group of my car buddies & I go on a monthly food cruise, sometimes breakfast, lunch or dinner. Last Saturday we took a 40 mile cruise down country roads from Austin TX to Salado TX. We went to a shop there called City Garage that specializes in Lincolns & had lunch afterwards at a good burger joint in Salado. We've been lucky this winter with beautiful weather for the most part with just a few cold rainy days in between. Here's a little video I put together from the cruise. It's a…

Pics from Cadillac show yesterday

Posted on May 12, 2013 at 11:51am 0 Comments

Our local CLC chapter had their annual show at Covert Cadillac in Austin TX yesterday.

There is an interesting story on the 61 limo. A man wanted to purchase a car for some nuns. They reluctantly agreed but insisted that it be bare bones with no radio or air conditioning. When the 61 series 75 showed up of course even without a radio or a/c it was way too ostentatious. The nuns tried to return it to the dealer but they said they could not sell it because it didn't have a/c. So most…

I went to the annual Lincoln show in Salado TX on Saturday. Yes, I have friends on the dark side. LOL. I brought my 63 CDV of course. There was also a pristine 67 Eldo, & a 89 Allante in the spectator lot so Cadillac was well represented. On the way home we stopped at Hardtails Bar & Grill in Georgetown TX http://www.hardtailsbarandgrill.com/index.html and there crashing through the wall is a full sized front end from a 64…

My 1964 Cadillac electrical system is running around 17 volt which is to high,the alternator, battery and the voltage regulator was replaced but the voltage is still to high, could it be the pig tail that plugs into the voltage regulator.
