Red Rover

I wish I had a more elegant background for this mack daddy red Cadi, but even without luxe surroundings, this car could make you feel like a million bucks.

That late 50's model is a gem!!! Who cares about the surroundings. My eye can't stay off of that red convertible!!!

This must be the evolutionary stage just prior to fins.

even your quick shots are artistic. I like that bit of yellow. How do you find all these cars, anyway?

That's a '57 Sedan de Ville. It's nice that it appears to be all original. In case the Chieftess wants to know how I know, my dad had a '58. They were identical except for the tail fins. In '57 they leaned forward, and in '58 they leaned back.

This is my dream car. Thanks, Laurie. I wish you would do a coffee table book of all your classic car photos.

To die for. Better than a pair of red Jimmy Choo's (not that I ever owned those either!)

Not too shabby. But I'm happy just to admire it; hate to be the one waxing it.

LA's just an old car magnet, Clarice!!!

Believe it or not...when I was in about the 3rd grade, I was fascinated by cars and drew them constantly...the bigger the fin the better!!!

Can I drive? Can I? Can I pleeeeeeez?

Thanks, everyone. I'm pretty fond of this car, too.

A car like that would, indeed, make me feel like million bucks! Kind of like how my older brother feels when he’s driving his Lexus Convertible ISC. We let him be because he deserves a car that is sleek and downright fantastic! Well, he’s worked hard for it. =D
