Ain't it great when a barn find turns out to be a real barn find?

Car is older than most barns.  Incredible.

Car was sold to the last (now deceased) owner in 1975 by none other than CLC co-founder Ansel Sackett.

I see reserve has now been met with one day to go. This will be interesting.

So exciting watching the videos.

Going from this era where you needed to know quite a bit to even start the car, to today where engineering is trying to take away as much as possible the art and enjoyment out of motoring - right down to voice control and self driving.

This proves you didn't need fins to make a Cadillac a WOW!

Have fun,

I used to have a friend with a 1910 REO, 4 cylinder ‘continental’ engine. He bought it in 1948. he drove it quite regular his whole life.  I want to say 25-30mph was about its cruzing  speed. No front brakes (until 1924 on cadillac). Today’s urban area traffic would not be very tolerant. 

The word ‘cranky’ actually originated from cars that were hard to start😂
