Have a look at this awesome shot, reportedly shot on January 19, 1956. Always nice to see a 1951 Cadillac professional car, as well as the other Detroit iron. Lots of additional nostalgic details if you look closely, which document a time gone by. Clay/Lexi

Would be incredible to have a time machine and go back. All we got are fading images now, but check out this period shot of  a record setting 1962 Caddy. Clay/Lexi

I sure wish I could go back in time and walk through that dealers lot. So many awesome cars! It is pretty hard to tell, but it looks like a 1963 or 64 Cadillac in the showroom which would date the photo to then.  I was pretty young in the 1960's but I can still remember these cars when they were fairly new. I also remember well the wonderful smell of my grandparents 1961 and 1964 Chevy Impalas and the whirring noise the transmissions made when put into park, the same sound my '61 Cadillac makes. That's been over 50 years ago but just thinking of them brings a smile to my face! Thanks for sharing. - Doug

Gotta look out for 62 Park Avenue's tip on seeing that '62 in The Shape of Water, (which I have not yet seen). Clay/Lexi

General Discussions / Re: Bias ply or radial?

I have the Diamondback Auburn radials on my '61.  They are sized like bias ply, so they give you the correct ride height and profile, but they drive like a radial.  I've been very happy so far.  They are stiffer, like a radial, so you won't get the soft (some would say squishy) ride of a bias ply, but that is fine with me.

Buy and Sell / 1957 Data book for sale, a nice Christmas present?
« Last post by Roger Zimmermann on November 12, 2019, 01:27:54 PM »
Since 1991, I have a very nice 1957 Data book I would like to sell. My suggested price is $ 320.00, the same amount I paid at that time.
This would be a nice present for Christmas!
Other pictures are available on request. Thanks for looking and ordering it!
As an alternative: a 1957 specification manual for $ 210.00. Pictures are available.
