I came across this picture tonight of me and my first ‘64 de Ville, circa 1989.  I was 24 and cruising the Hollywood Hills, Beverly Hills, West LA, and the So Cal beaches, getting into all the trouble I could, without getting arrested.  Man….what great times!  Great times now, too….

One great picture of your  past and a nice thing to have in your future collection of 64 Cadillac photos  

Some serious real estate your cruising around out there then —-and now 

You were a young man to be sporting  a Cadillac convert at 24 years old 

My 64 convert was part of my life when I was about 21 and my Dads Cadillac at the time brand new 

I was busy drag racing and breaking a track record in Super Stock with a 409 Chevy  at that time 

More than anyone else I do understand you needing to duplicate owning  that Cadillac for all the joy it brought your in your youth 

After my racing I got myself a 1962 Cadillac convert  with optional then AC (  AC not common in the NY metropolitan area then ) —- all black exterior with a natural leather faun color interior I was about 25 and have never gotten over what a great experience than was until this very day 

Being young with the success associated with  owning a Cadillac at that time was an amazing experience ( mind blowing to many )

Dad had collected 6 or 7 fully restored early 60’s Cadillacs ( his personal collection ) and gave me the choice of which one I wanted which is right up there with the best possible days of my life 

We have a lot in common regarding the joy theses Classic Antique Cadillac convertibles have brought us thru the years and young 

These thought of my youth —— makes me feel warm and fuzzy — so thanks for that 

Keep knocking them out wherever you take your outstanding  ride —- just like the old days !

Actually it is even more exotic owning these great Cadillacs in 2023 than ever before and has always been a true BLAST OF A TIME  to be doing 

I think we should keep these Cadillacs around for a while ——don’t you ! ! !

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…


1964 power steering sector rebuild

Posted by CHRIS CARLSON on March 20, 2023 at 11:32pm 3 Comments

 I'm having my steering sector rebuilt, and considering changing it from 20-1 ratio 4.2 turns lock to lock to 3.5 turns lock to lock @ 16-1 ratio, If i change from a 3 1/4" box to a 3" box i could have a 14-1 Ratio steering response would be faster, shorter distance to turn the wheel to get a response,   has anyone done this? and how do you like it? thank you
