FULL OF HALF TRUTHS AND SUPPOSITIONS:
SOME TIME IN 1931 , JUST PRIOR TO HIS CONVICTION , MR CAPONE WALKED INTO THE CADILLAC DEALER IN CHICAGO AND PURCHASED A 1931 355A V8 CADILLAC, GREEN WITH BLACK FENDERS... (SIMILAR IN COLORATION TO CHICAGO P.D. AT THE TIME). PURELY COINCIDENCE!!
ABOUT THE SAME TIME A WELL RESPECTED AND HONORABLE PRIEST WALKED INTO THAT SAME CADILLAC DEALERSHIP AND ORDERED HIS OWN BRAND NEW 1931 CADILLAC 355 A V8. THE COLOR OF A FINE GLASS OF MERLOT WITH BLACK FENDERS. HE BELIEVED THAT THIS CAR WOULD BE THE LAST ONE HE WOULD EVER OWN...... HE WAS RIGHT. IT ACCOMPANIED HIM ON HIS LIFE JOURNEY FROM PRIESTHOOD ALL THE WAY TO MONSIGNOR. HE DROVE IT EVERY DAY FROM 1931 UNTIL 1956... HE PUT A WHOPPING 63.000 MILES ON THIS MAGNIFICENT CADILLAC AND ENJOYED A VERY SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS CAR.... FATHER MONSIGNOR COGGIN PASSED ON IN 1966. HIS CADDY WAS SOLD TO ANOTHER LOVING FAMILY AND THEN ENTERED A PRIVATE COLLECTION IN 2011, WE PURCHASED IT IN 2016.....
HERE YOU SEE THIS CADILLAC IN ALL OF ITS ORIGINAL BEAUTY.... ...LOOKING AT THIS CAR IS LIKE GAZING UPON SOPHIA LOREN OR RAQUEL WELCH..... THEY HAVE AGED BEAUTIFULLY AND WILL BE AS BREATHTAKING AT 85........AS THIS ICONIC CADILLAC IS AT 85 YEARS OLD......
OH YEAH THIS WAS THE TALE OF TWO CADILLACS ,WELL YOU CAN GUESS THE OUTCOME OF THE FIRST CADDY,.... IT WAS CONVERTED INTO AN ARMORED CAR FOR CAPONE , THEN CONFISCATED BY THE IRS. NEVER LOVED , NEVER CARED FOR , SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT FDR USED THIS CAR THE DAY HE ANNOUNCED THAT PEARL HARBOR HAD BEEN ATTACKED...... IN FACT THAT CAR WAS SUPPOSED TO BE AUCTIONED OFF IN THE NEAR FUTURE WITH A $300,000 PRICE TAG ....WHICH ONE WOULD YOU PREFER???
