Hello all, I’ve been restoring my 63 for about 6 years now and I’m finally on the home stretch. I just wants to take a moment to thank you all for the parts and knowledge over the years. You all have been tremendous help and I’m forever grateful. This weekend we will be taking her for a spin for the first time and I couldn’t be more excited. I didn’t do the best at documentation but I threw together a super short video with photos I look along the way. Special thanks to jason and Russ for all of the random parts and pieces I had you guys cut off your parts cars to get this thing to where it is today. It’s not 100% complete yet but I’d say she’s 98% finished. Here is the link to the video if it doesn’t open here on the forum https://streamable.com/xm81c9

It won’t let me embed the video for some reason

Great job! It looks like you had a lot of rust to deal with. Nice work. What engine is that? It kinda looks like the 5.3L in my Silverado. That car is lucky to have you.as an owner. I hope it brings you much joy now that you're getting it back on the road.

Yes it is a 5.3 out of an 02 Tahoe 


There are restorations —-and then there are restorations !

Your restoration abilities and auto talents are on a very high scale with the work you have done here 

The Cadillac looks just amazing  as your blood  sweat tear and expense to get what you want out of this project comes shinning thru 

I have admired your metal restoration work from the start of your project as that is something that I wish I could do but will never happen at this point in my life 

A special man with special talents and a special Cadillac that he restored by hand  for himself 

A lot of work and passion in this ride to be very proud of 



Wow, That Caddy has literally be resurrected. Fantastic work! Now we need to get you to join the CLC and our Chapter so we can do a Newsletter Cover Feature!

Would not let me embed either. probably because it is not YouTube or Facebook .. .not sure.

Chris, I remember you posting photos early on and thinking to myself, there surely are better restoration candidates out there. Kudos to you for doing the work and literally saving one from the scrapper. I would think it must be incredibly rewarding to complete a project of this magnitude.

Very nice to look at

Here it is:


The main factor is the length of the ceramic insulator from the middle of the spark plug to the tip (where the spark happens)  

The insulator…


Lower Front End Ball Joints

Posted by Logan Robb on May 11, 2023 at 9:04am 7 Comments

Good Morning all! 

I took the 64 into the shop to have some adjustments completed and in the process decided to have the lower ball joints replaced as was recommended the last time I had it in. I ordered the parts and came into the shop. They quoted me nearly $500 to replace those lower ball joints requiring nearly 4hrs of labor. Now this is a reputable shop and they know me by name here and they will continue to get my business. I am just questioning what on earth is…
