This is a single family owned Cadillac. My grandfather bought it new 1/18/1968, from Ben Feferman Cadillac in South Bend, Indiana. The car was
in Michigan until Jan. of 1977, when my grandparents moved to Alabama. In 1991 the “Caddy” was passed down to my dad. He drove the car to Arizona, where it has resided since. He drove it periodically until 2006. It has been stored from that time. The Cadillac was passed down to me in 2008, but I’ve not driven it. My grandfather never removed the original price sticker from the rear driver side window.... what hasn’t deteriorated over the years has been preserved. The car has 55,829 original miles, powered by the original 472cid 375hp motor. It's solid mechanically. My dad has been the only mechanic and has kept a maintenance journal since 1990. He can tell you anything you need to know about the car. New tires, new bushings in front suspension, new brake parts, brake booster, master cylinder, new shoes, battery and wiper blades. The paint is original and decent ...few imperfections. Chrome, glass and interior are in great shape. Original protect o plate, purchase order and owners manual included. It’s a beautiful car....must see!

As excessive as the 1961 Cadillac seems today, it was actually quite toned down from the wildly ebullient 1959 Cadillac with its towering rocket fins.

When the 1967 Austin Mini Mark ll came to market, consumers were quick to find that the unintended result of this short wheel-base was a car with nimble, go-kart handling.
The adventures and foolishness of youth. Everyone has that childhood friend whom their wife disapproves. I would imagine I have been that for a few of my lifelong friends — natch. I had such a friend; his name was Marcus. We had a rather wild weekend up at Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, in a car very […]
Editor’s note: One morning last week, those arriving early at the ClassicCars.com office heard a noise coming from the storage closet. Fearing, perhaps, a rodent or two, they unlocked the door and peeked inside. What they saw was an old fax machine — remember those? — that was spitting out the last of three pages. […]
In July 2019, my cancer returned after six years, which also caused me to retire from my law enforcement career of some 36 years. I then started a treatment plan and in October, on my birthday, I couldn’t even eat any cake my wife, Kate, had gotten. So I sat in the corner and just […]
