Back in 1983 my dad,my uncle and a friend decided to buils a demo-derby car,so they found a fairly rust free,cheap 1957 CADILLAC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!so 2 races later you can see how good it still looked in pic #4.
Pic #3 was before.
It was called "Grannies Caddy"and the announcer said that those guy's were gonna be in trouble when granny was ready to go to church in the morning!
The good news is it was later sold to a restorer in Indy for the still perfect running engine (he was surprised that it fired right up after setting in our junk yard for a few years,and looking the way it did!!),so maybe somewhere she's still alive!

    BTW jayhow,in those days that car was an old car only worth about $50,nobody wanted them,sorry if you don't understand.
    If all the old stuff was saved years ago,we wouldn't have so much fun hunting for it today,and it wouldn't be rare.And we probably would be here(CW).
