I had the need to remove the rear inside quarter panels on my CDV today & I had to smile when I looked at all the window tracks it took to make the rear window roll up and down as it does, and then I thought about when the tracks were designed, ( prior to computers as we know them today ), and I wondered how many slide rule calculations it might have taken to make the window roll as it does. Sometimes I am amazed at what the engineers were able to do on these vehicles prior to computers !

Once upon a time there was a Cadillac factory with Cadillac-trained workers who made Cadillac cars and engines according to Cadillac standards.
Sadly this no longer exists.

For those interested in our marque's history try to find a copy of Maurice Hendry's "Cadillac, The Seventy Year History" published in 1973. It tells the whole story.

You are right on the money Russ! My wife has a '14 Cadillac CTS coupe that has been in the shop more since new than my '64 has in the same time frame. Funny thing is the way the service people treat her every time she goes in there for warranty work as if she is some kind of criminal or she is bothering them.  Remember when buying a Cadillac was special and customers were treated accordingly? I guess today they figure everyone can just whip out $43k for a new car and brand loyalty be hanged.  Sad commentary on what we have become in 50 years.

Funny that these old cars are still going strong, while the new junk barely lasts the warranty period.

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed. 

I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then. 

Still having…

The front lower ends are gone but what's there looks to be in decent condition and a fair price in today's market. I have no connection, just passing it along in case it might work for someone.
