auburnseeker

Oh no what did I do? Now I need a new Username.

Recommended Posts

Seems like decades since my search started and I would never be in the right place at the right time to buy one of the cars at the top of my bucket list. 

Well thanks to a lead from Ed and him stepping back (a big thank you is due) so I could get it, the day has arrived and it's sitting in my Garage.  Unfortunately with winter and the uphill grade to the garage we unloaded it right into the garage so pictures will be forthcoming but not real good like outside photos with natural lighting. 

 

Is it time for a name change from Auburnseeker?

I have the Cord that's in the other bay.  I'am afraid the D in ACD is going to remain just a dream but I can live with that.

Probably a 60's or 70's Restoration/ Refurbishment so she has some "patina" but nothing horrendous unless you are really looking for a show car.  I can live with most of it.

How about auburnseekedbutfound.  Then everyone would still recognize you!  Congrats on the Auburn, great styling from a premier automobile company...!

I’ll admit I suggested that the photo be .....how shall we say........keep them guessing. Matt.....I almost bought this car, and you know my opinion of convertible sedans. I’m a fan of closed cars myself.

 

Ok, as far as a new name.........I propose we do it by vote of the members on the forum. Since you now have two of the BIG THREE boy toys...........and you only need one more for the “grand slam”  it’s only appropriate that the name change is ACD related.

Ok, I confess.........I was up to Randy’s place to unload the car with him.........we also finished the “shed” he has been working on.......it came out nice........I had to twist his arm to put the car in the showroom window. Color even matches 89 years later.

Very nice, I found pictures of it on the internet. Will not give a spoiler to the body style. Can you even buy lunch for 5 dollars anymore?😀 Happy for you.

Oh what a wonderful feeling it is to finally bring in the car you have been looking for ! I expect you will have a very hard time tearing yourself away from it, and going to bed tonight ! And I know for sure what you will be doing just as soon as you wake up Sunday morning. As for your handle : Well, if my handle had been cadillacseeker, and sought 'lac had been found, I might just have shortened- up, capitalized and thrown in a few exclamation points for emphasis.     CADILLAC !!!   And I have noticed, that from time to time, some of the guys already just call you :      AUBURN !!!      -    CC
