Continuing our week of pictures from Las Vegas we have a nice 1976 Cadillac Eldorado convertible. You can see all the details in the picture. Later in the week we will see a bicentennial version which was at Barrett-Jackson. While this is a nice car I think it is a little overpriced unless I am missing something.
Classic Car Shows
Even though we are spread out all over the world I would like to list some car shows that you are planning to attend. Email me and let me know your car show details and I will list them here. Charity shows have first priority of course.
As most of you know when I am in NYC I attend all the East Coast Car Association car shows. This last one is their end of year show at Forest Park. This is located in Woodhaven Queens NY. Wish I could be there this year.
We only have room for 250 cars, so come early. The first 100 cars receive goody bags and dash plaques, all types of cars trucks motorcycles are welcome, so bring you Antique classic, modified, tuner, 4×4, chopper, big wheeled, hydraulics, if it has a engine please join us. To see more details about this show visit the East Coast Car Association website

Nice exterior. Strange interior color combination. It doesn’t look like it came from the factory like that.
Still, I would take that over the Mercedes sitting next to it any day of the week. I agree that it is a bit over priced. I wonder what the mileage is? I can’t wait to see the bicentennial edition from Barrett Jackson. That one should fetch a good amount of money.

The Mercedes had some sort of super duper engine in it if I remember correctly. I would still take the Cadillac though.
I agree on the color combo and wish I would have seen it when I was there I would have asked. Looks like the seats were put in after. Not sure though.

The Mercedes is probably the 6.3. They were fast and good handling cars but, if anything goes wrong, you would need to take out a second mortgage on the home to repair it.
When pulling out into an intersection, most people would have their eyes on the Eldorado instead of the Mercedes. At the end of the day, that is where the smile on ones face would come. For me, that makes the Cadillac a natural choice. 🙂
