I know it has been a long time since I updated the site but as you know the Hurricane kind of changed my life. I am typing this from Phoenix Arizona where we rented a home while I rebuild the old house. My girlfriends daughter lives out here so that is why we rented out here. I go back on Monday to start the rebuild. Thank you for all the emails! The support we received was overwhelming to say the least.
We just got back after spending a week at a conference in Las Vegas. As you know I love going to Las Vegas so I can go to the Auto Collection show at “The Quad”! The Quad is the new name for the Imperial Palace casino. I just love taking pictures of the classic Cadillacs and sharing them with you all.
This time they had a beautiful 1961 series 62 Cadillac convertible that was smoking red hot! It was by far the best looking Cadillac that I have saw in person. While I took like 100 pictures I took the best 2 to show you for now. I will make another post with the rest of the pictures. This Cadillac had the original jack and spare tire. As I was taking pictures one of the staff came over and let me get some close up pictures. Thanks Ken
I will be updating with more pictures as soon as I can. Since the hurricane took away my old laptop I have no way of updating the main site for now. That will change soon!
Heading to Barrett-Jackson
While I am in Phoenix for the weekend I am planning on heading up to the Barrett-Jackson auction one of the days. They have a strict policy about photographing the cars but I am sure I can sneak one in from my cell phone. Maybe I will get lucky and run into April Rose in the Speed Social Garage!
This has got to be the best example of a 1961 Cadillac convertible that I have ever seen in my life! WOW! 🙂
Thanks for posting and I hope all goes well with the rebuilding of your home.
I had a feeling you would be leaving the first comment 🙂
It is a beauty, I am going to get some more pictures up soon.

I would love to see more pictures – I bought that beautiful Cadillac and drove it to Santa Monica, CA – where Route 66 ends – took Route 66 all the way to Chicago where Route 66 begins. Finally took Ruby home to Indiana. She was admired all the way home – people love seeing classic cars on Route 66. Jennifer
