I seem to remember having done this a few times before (although it may have been the "stuff I don't get" series). Consider this another entry in the list of things I'd do if I hit the powerball.
I would *love* to find a late 1960s through early 1980s Cadillac Sedan de Ville, restore it, and use it as my "Sunday driving" car.
Seriously, wouldn't it be awesome to take off for the afternoon in this:
Or even this:
There's just something about a car with a hood you could land a helicopter on, isn't there?
Now, in the interest of full disclosure, I did actually own a 1983 Coupe de Ville. It was gray, with the peeling gray vinyl quarter landau roof, and it sat 6.
With everyone having their own ashtray and cigarette lighter.
For the coupe, I thought about restoring it, but with a large V8 engine (It had the ridiculously small 4.1L V8 under the hood; I wanted something that started with a "4" or larger, heh). Paint it black, with the black vinyl roof, red pinstriping, and get the nice wire basket rims. Toss in an understated dual exhaust with a low rumble, and have the sleeper-from-hell...
Yeah, me hitting the lottery is going to require a parking garage be built first...
That is all.
