Red

I was taking a shortcut through the city and passed this red beauty so of course I pulled over for a pic! It is a 1959 Cadillac Coupe De Ville and after peeking into the interior I can tell you that the whole car was beautifully restored. It was huge and I can't imagine trying to parallel park it! Perfect for the King.

Those were big models but I loved 'em. For awhile, I had a Caddy - I can't remember the vintage - probably from the 70s.

Nice photo of this beauty!

The 1959 Cadillac was the ultimate luxo-cruiser. Great shot, and perfect in red and white.

That is in wonderful condition. A real beauty. To think people used to parallel park those babies! (We had cars in that year, but well used older cheaper models ... I don't think they ever had fins quite like that.)

Really beautiful this 'ancient' cadillac! But so much long to drive in the narrow streets from my city in Brazil...

Have a nice week!

Some parking lots are hard to get around in a much smaller car than this. I'm thinking you can;t take this car everywhere. :))

WOW! Look at that!

Oh wow! How on earth did they manage these old beauties :) mind you there was less traffic back then.. But as for parallel parking, I don't even do it in my small car :)
