A BYGONE ERA

Look what my next door neighbor just bought?
(And I'm so jealous!)

This is the 1974 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible.
In Flaming Red, no less.

This is the last year of the famous Eldorado convertibles,
one of the longest U.S. production cars ever made.
235 inches!
(Try to find a parking space for this baby.)

Scott bought this from a "little old lady" (really).
All original -- 50,000 miles.
It runs like a dream.
(And gets a cool 7-miles-to-the-gallon. Ouch.)

He paid $3,000.
(He can afford the gasoline.)

  4. ¡Hello Rick!!!

    If I find a good car and you can pay U.S. gasoline will be cheaper there than here in Spain.
    Deserted. Greetings from this side of the world. Be very happy.

    ¡Hola Rick!!!

    Si me parece un buen coche y podrás pagar la gasolina que ahí EEUU será más económica que aquí en España. Desfrutado.
