    This is an old marusan caddy I had sitting in the shed for a few years. I am curious if this thing is worthy of displaying? Well realistically I doubt my wife would let me anyways.

      Of course it's worth displaying! Some people will pay quite a bit of money for it to display! Beautiful piece in very nice shape, I need a shed like yours.

      Hey thanks I'm glad you like it. I have it on display now, any idea what this caddy is worth?

      Here is a link for a completed sale for a Cadillac like yours. I think yours is in much nicer condition, so you can expect to get a bit more than the price they realized. She's a real beauty, display her with pride.

      Automobile stylists are artists and sculptors. People who dismiss cars, etc. as merely utilitarian don't see the beauty, and that's too bad for them. Hopefully your wife will surprise you with an open mind, but be careful about her getting wind of the value.

      Wow thats great thanks for the link, I can't believe I had it in the shed for so long this thing is getting its own case and well be a great addition to my man cave. thanks again all.

      Now that's the way to care for old toys. Glad to be of help.
