Joe, great video and especially that somber dirge music accompanying it.  Hope you or others made good use of the parts you salvaged.  Are any parts left that you don't need?

Yes, there are some parts that I will offer on the forum.  We did our best to salvage everything worth keeping.

Great video:

IMO, the 1949 Cadillac Fleetwood was the prettiest in the entire '49 line. Long, tall and stately.

I thought this was a feel good video with a nice ending.  Thanks for throwing a wet blanket on my Sunday afternoon.

That car was picked CLEEEEEEN! Nice Job!

Although you did what was right for the car, I hope the old lady didn't see what you did to her husband's car :)
