Oldest picture of you with a Cadillac
« on: November 07, 2012, 11:54:32 AM »
Just came across this picture of me( the little one) and my brother taken in 1953 on the folks first new Cadillac, a 53 sedan with wire hubcaps.

Note wire roof luggage rack a top of, which I found under the folks house after they passed away. It now resides in Europe on a 55 chevy just like it did on the folks new 55 chevy 4 door wagon :<

 It must have been a fairly well optioned car too. Look at those wire wheels! And I must say you were brought up right, a new cadillac at such a young age.

 I think I may have a pick of me somewhere with my first Cadillac, a clapped out 1975 CDV, but I'd have to locate it.

This is a photo of my mother, my sister and I on Easter Sunday, 1960 with my 1941 60 Special (I was 5 years old).  Two years ago the four of us posed again for the 50th anniversary of this photo.  My mother pointed out that the three of us have aged, while the car looks as good or better than it did in the original photo.

This was back in about 1956. I was about 9.
I am the one with the hose.
 My brothers and I washing my dad's 42 Cadillac. I know this was posted before, but maybe some more people will get a charge out of the old pictures.

I don't know when I'll find the picture but I have 1 from when I was 2, in 1968 sitting on the hood of my fathers 1963 Eldorado Convertible, it was aqua with white top & interior.

Very cool!  I KNOW I have pictures of me with our 59 Eldo, and may even have pictures of me with our 50. I named it 'Tom', I don't know why  I definitely remember playing with the cool location of the hidden fuel filler. I Just don't know if my parents ever caught me in the ack of that fascination.

Unfortunately, all of those pictures are in some Kodak carousel as a slide. About all I have is a picture of my Dad's 49 Sedanette that he took on base, probably at Windover or somewhere in Texas.

Hello,  Ok I know there is no picture but I have to tell you all what you started and a short story.  There is a picture of me in 1965-66 in front of my Grandmothers 1957 Cpe deVille. But I have not found it yet. At some point in 1966 the car "threw a rod" and they bought a 1966 Olds Starfire (I can find that picture). In 1976 my Monther dropped me off for a music lesson and notice my teacher had a White/Black Cadillac in the driveway. She wrote down the License Plate and asked her Mother in Law (my Grandmother) and sure enough that was the plate on their car.  So, 10 years after they got rid of the 1957 deVille my music teacher owned it.  Small World for sure.   Now I know I have this picture because when my Grandmother passed in 2001 and we found the picture and a few months later I ran into a 1957 deVille (not her's) and bought it in a moment of missing my Grandmother.   I still own the 57 and I am still looking for that picture. 

Ok,  no a picture but I had to share this as looking for the picture got me looking at family photo's dating to the late 1800's and I have now burnt a 2 days building the family tree online.

thanks for allowing me a trip down memory lane

Ok, I'll play. ;D  My first experience with a Cadillac was when a friend helped me purchase my 59 Fleetwood.  I've always liked cars with fins, and the 59 Cad is my favorite.  This pic is of me and the car right after we finished painting it, but before the rest of the trim was installed.  Taken in 1990, I'm 29 in the pic. I don't look like that any more. :o
