Stripper Model – 1958 Cadillac Fleetwood 75

September 10, 2014

Sometimes, the perfect car is for sale in the perfect venue. And you all know the old real estate chestnut (location, location, location) – maybe it applies to cars too. That would have you buying your Alfa in North Beach or the North End (Italian quarters of San Francisco and Boston, respectively), your BMW in Leavenworth, WA (pseudo-Alpine town), and your Cadillac limousine from the side lot adjacent to a strip club. Wait, what? Check out this 1958 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 for sale for $4000 at the Reflections Bar in beautiful Fairbanks, AK.

Evolution – 1968 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 Limousine

December 13, 2013

Yesterday, we featured a 1963 Cadillac, and the discussion was about the evolution of GM design. Fortuitously, an interesting later Cadillac has shown up, as a great illustration of that change in style. It’s also a perfect example of the RustyButTrusty philosophy – save a few bucks on an interesting car by accepting some cosmetic challenges. You know those stories you always hear of some guy who dragged a pre-war Duesenberg/Packard/Rolls Royce out of someone’s front yard in the 1970s for $500? Well, this is the closest you’ll get to that without dipping into your line of credit, retirement fund, and kids’ college funds. Check out this 1968 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 Limousine for sale in St. Petersburg, FL, with bidding at $2500 and 4 days left to go.
