1973 Cadillac: period correct repairs

Recommended Posts

Great thread, I'm all for keeping cars on the road no matter what. I would far rather see some old car cobbled together in some third world country, using corrugated roofing sheets and home made brake fluid than see trailer queens at pebble beach.

I think a separate chassis car even if the non structural bits are full of wob , driven gently for very few miles a year will be far,far safer than some PCPd to the eyeballs idiot rushing about the place, probably without an mot as it will be too new to have it's first one...

Go Eddie, ignore the haterz, crack on, summers nearly over. 

All I would add is: cherry bombs

That's quite an impressive old heap, and the building behind it is nice too.

That's the famous art-deco Midland Hotel, seen in at least one episode of Poirot; it's where the American autos and hot rods assemble this time every month, virus permitting.

That is the building that inspired my friend to build his new house in the Deco style near Laurencekirk. He has sold it now, but a superb house which made a great backdrop to my Royce

@antony denman Thank you!  If you can get up to Barrow sometime you will be welcome.  I didn't spot a Granada on my way home, were you in something else?

Of course you can get up to Barrow, doh, you're only round the corner!  I'm sorry, I didn't realise it was you, I just caught up with some of your other postings.  Welcome aboard, glad you're enjoying us!

And until 10 years ago was derelict.  

Further down the prom, there's a 1950s coffee shop. It's got the same decor and furniture it's had for 60 plus years. 

Wait. It opened in 1939

I took it out this morning too, looking for some suitably 1980s-Chicago type backdrops...

I think it looks right at home!

If the first picture had more sash windows and some drooping A/C units, you'd be spot on with the look.
