:lol:

Will never forget for some 20+ years when you drove across the Tamiami Trail past Wooten's airboat rides, (70's & 70's) there was a row of Cadillac bodies, (with no engines LOL) sitting out front. Some of the very first barges-the Wooten's running Caddy's on their huge tour boats. :thumbleft:
Don't waste your time-its the only thing you can't get back, (Cntry141IQ/John had another thousand of these before he went sliding into the sky). :-(

He's more trouble than you think, he'll kill your sugar, leave you in the drink.

We certainly have been a car motor family for many decades. I remember as a kid having many "donor" Eldorados as yard art.
