Hello everyone from a new Canadian member
« on: November 30, 2021, 02:35:26 PM »
Hi y’all , my names Kristin  I’m a mentally ill car nut , says my wife and most others. I have many European cars from the 60’s through the 1990’s . But I also collect good old American steel. I live in Vancouver bc .
 Currently my American cars are
1949 Cadillac coupe deville in cream colour
1956 Cadillac coupe deville in pink
1959 Cadillac fleetwood in red
1985 Cadillac eldorado Biarritz convertible
1955 imperial coupe in black with red interior
Happy to finally figure out this online thing :) I bet many of you here have a wealth of knowledge and I’m hoping to be able to learn and possibly share some tid bits here and there to contribute to conversations. Also I’m sure I have some spare parts kicking around and surely I need some hard to find parts aswell . Thank you all in advance for letting me participate in your community.      :)

Once I figure out how to load pictures haha I will

The dust and dirt on the Fleetwood, depending on what it is, may have protected the paint. I'd like to see that one shined up.

Welcome aboard.

A saying for old times sake!
Current:
1976 Eldorado Convertible in Crystal Blue FireMist with white interior and top.
1969 Fleetwood Brougham in Chalice Gold FireMist with matching interior and top.

I just purchased the 59 recently and paid a lot for it as the car under the dust looked very solid . Could not find rust . Seems the guy drove it daily then passed from a heart attack and the son couldn’t bare to sell it . Stars aligned and now she’s all mine . I also felt that the dust protected it and I was eight . Paint is almost flawless . Chrome is coming up nice too . Will get some better pics for ya
