Had a fantastic cruise in Matt & Les Eastling’s 1963 Eldorado Biarritz today in the Winston-Salem, NC area. Video taken in wide angle mode from iPhone. This 63 Caddy and its restoration was featured in our April 2018 63-64 Cadillac Chapter Newsletter.

Driving one of these  Cadillac masterpieces ( mine is a 64 convert ) for the sheer joy of being on the road behind the wheel of these Iconic General Motors cars  sure makes the journey so very much more of a  FUN good time than it could be otherwise 

I very much relate to the reaction you get from people you encounter —-  it is priceless !

Being out and about is what all the blood sweat  tears and money that go into a restoration is really  all about ( the  true joy of ownership ) 

Love your restoration story and  your Eldo is  one beautiful car to stay in the family for generations as mine will be doing as well 

Enjoy your special car and family project

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 1 Comment

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Car lift and jack stands

Posted by Les Eastling on March 23, 2021 at 10:00am 4 Comments

I mentioned during the 63/64 chapter zoom meeting on 3/21 that we had installed a car lift in our garage. Someone asked what kind and I didn't have the info at hand, so here is a link to it and also a link to some tall jack stands we use to add more stability to the car and an additional safety factor. There is something about getting underneath one of these cars that makes me a little nervous! …

Leaky Freeze Plug

Posted by Lee Martin on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

Just developed a significant leak coming from a freeze plug right over the starter.  Would this be considered a "cam plug" i.e. like Dorman 17616DS?  Our cars have multiple sizes of plugs on engine block and I want to get the right one.  Also, does anyone know how pricey this is for a shop to fix?  Thanks!
