Website & Chapter Member Chris Codd and another friend named Chris came to the house yesterday and removed a right rear qtr panel from a 64 CDV.  They came prepared and cut it off nice and clean but it is a major effort. With my Nest Cam in the corner, I downloaded the 4 hr + video and made a 1 minute timelapse I thought you all might get a kick out of.

Here is the video

One thing about it.. I don't half way do anything! LOL

Looks like this turned out to actually be the best April Fool's joke I have ever unknowingly pulled. Anders thought it was a joke, but is real.  So who's fooling who! LOL 

Best April Fools joke ever when the truth is stranger than fiction. Wow!

Indeed. LOL!

I do not believe all that is posted on April 1st is correct. And it could have been a joke. But on the other hand with "fake news" now every day in internet maybe April 1st will be the non-joke day?

Do like the information you posted and all the pictures. Thanks for that.

When I was a kid I also listened to Elvis. Was very much aware of his preference for Cadillacs. Same as with Sammy Davis Jr.

I think I seen most of Elvis films and Jailhouse Rock is still a favorite.

What I posted was just the tip of the iceberg! It was an outrageously fun time in my life.

And you thougt --Jason --was was just another a pretty Face !!!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!! ( in a very deep vice )


Anders would really get a kick out of the fact I'm friends with American Idol Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery! Here is a picture of me presenting a very rare copy of Elvis That's All Right, Mama on Sun 78, to mom Judy and sister Ashley a couple days after he performed the song on American Idol. 

And here's one of me, Scotty and Cheryl.

Man I am so glad I voted for you to represent us in the Cadillac/LaSalle club!!!  You really are our ambassador of good will.  I shook hands with Mickey Mouse once at Disney World but that's about it. 

Ha Ha. I usually keep quiet about my previous life ... but it was a lot of fun!

What gasket or seal at the PCV pipe under intake?

Wonder what kind of seal goes on the metal PCV pipe under the intake?  It looks like the larger part is kind of a press fit into the manifold but maybe there was a rubber gasket under the bolt that…Continue

1963 Eldorado convertible boot

Posted by Les Eastling on February 27, 2020 at 10:33am 1 Comment

I need a used convertible boot for a 63 Cadillac convertible - condition or color is not an issue since it will be used as a pattern for making a new one. One from either a 62 series convertible or an Eldorado would work. I know I am searching for hen's teeth here... but you never know unless you ask!
