1941 Cadillac 4 -DR 61 Series Fastback.


Recommended Posts

Hi Chris ! Sure wish you could post the smell of that fine old veteran ! ? The aroma , and the manual trans would have already made that Cadillac mine if not for the stage of life and otherwise I am in. I hope the lucky next owner will leave well enough alone , other than to rebuild the steering wheel , as this is a superb survivor driver. I love these monoblock flathead V8 Cads. They really are able long distance drivers. Handle well , and know how to stop too , with their huge brakes.  GLWS !     - Cadillac Carl , CLC 10797 , (life)

Unfortunately Terre Haute has changed a lot over the years... used to be a huge economic powerhouse of the region, now crime rates have went up and unemployment has gone up as the jobs have moved.

 

Oh well, that's a tangent.  That's definitely an older house, and would make sense.  Cool Cadillac... wish I had the money for it.

This is the house at the address on the ID card. I expected something a bit more upscale.

Until the commercial buildings encroached

and the lower-quality modern "improvements" 

were made to the house, that could have been

a nice upper-middle-class residence on a beautiful

street--a perfect home for this nice entry-level Series 61 Cadillac.

 

I'm just as much an advocate of keeping architecture attractive--

and towns attractive--as I am in keeping a car unmodified!
