Like Charles, I began my fascination with '59s at a very early age. I also acted on it at a very early age, buying a really nice '59 CDV when I was 13 for $350 with money I saved from my paper route. I planned to keep it until I was old enough to drive it, but I learned the trans was bad and knew I couldn't afford that on my paper boy budget, so I sold it a few months later and bought a '60 Impala flat top. But I never got over the '59, and not long after I was out on my own in the working world, I bought my '59 60S. Drove it home on Xmas eve, 1984. A couple of years later, met my wife because she heard I was restoring a finned Cad and she like them, too. Nearly 25 years later, we're all still together. I would like to own a flat top, and have also wondered why the Fleetwood wasn't available as a "6039." I have a spare set of Fleetwood trim. Maybe I'll make my own 6039 some day. In the meantime, here's a pinup.
This real pink 1959 Cadillac is the bed in a fantasy suite motel room in Denton, Texas. The room is available for $200.00 a night. The original engine is still in place under the hood! Photo by Charles D. Barnette.
