A lot of work on this Custom 57/58 Brougham
« on: January 07, 2014, 06:29:47 AM »
My first thought was , why would somebody do this ?  Someone had their imagination working on this old Caddy .Has any body seen this car before? Or know any thing about it ?

Nothing about the car, but the location is Monte Carlo.

The car looks very well done, but because you can does not mean you should.

At least the owner has class.   He could have commissioned a Lincoln Continental for the conversion, and then the Lincoln people would be complaining.

Anyone needing Wheelchair Access deserves the best.

Ouch! It was a perfectly fine (and dignified) car to begin with. Why ruin it?

A lot of fabrication work there but I just can't get on board with the final product.
 
I wonder what happened to all of the extra parts. I noticed it didn't end up with the polarized visors.

"There was only 514 of those made; you don't turn that car into a lowrider."

You get the point. Use a Series 62, maybe a Sixty Special, even a Series 75, but not an Eldorado Brougham especially a nice one at that.

Bruce , mate, time to turn the dial down on your medication. The owner has NO class to commission such an abomination of bad taste. It hurts even more when I saw the car that it started as . One of the best preserved Kenya Beige originals that you could ever hope to find.  I would have personally kneecapped the perpertrator of this shammozzle, so just as well it has wheel chair access. . . . Give him all the bloody Lincoln Continentals we can throw at him.

Some people don't know the difference between awfully good and awful! The owner may have made big money in sports or drug dealing. Obvously he wanted something that he felt would make a statement. Would have been better to be quiet.

If he wanted to leave a footprint on the Sands of Time, he is leaving one made by a deformed cripple. Perhaps that is why the wheelchair access?

Ah, a "classic" Pimpmobile?? Bet that is it!

They also destroyed a 39 Cadillac. Look under Completed Projects. Why these ugly rims?

It really is worse as that was not a Kenya Beige car, it was a 98 copper one. Only 2 EB's made in that color in '58.

IT IS ONE THING TO DISLIKE THE CAR.
IT IS REALLY IN POOR TASTE TO LOOK DOWN YOUR NOSES AT A VEHICLE THAT HAS BEEN TRANSFORMED INTO A MODE OF TRANSPORTATION FOR SOMEBODY IN A WHEELCHAIR.

YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES. HEARTLESS, JUST HEARTLESS.

Mario,
          I hope your tongue is firmly planted in your cheek???? Ashamed, No. Disgusted, Yes.  How about we cut up the Mona Lisa ( it's just an old pitcher anyhows) and make a wheelchair ramp for this DISGUSTING MONSTROSITY? Perhaps he can use the Shroud of Turin to wipe his grimy hands on? The statue of David as a wheel chock ?.  This car really needs a toilet and an ensuite. 
         
          Dumb oversensitivity and political correctness just %$#%&* me off . . . and you who looks down at me for not having a heart.  .  .  (Thankfully my brain still works).
           Have a Nice  Day. Q

It's disgusting, and I'm not ashamed to say this, many a car could have been made wheelchair accessible, it's an abominable waste of a car, indeed look at the rest of the garbage that 'custom' shop builds, every single one them is lacking in taste.
