A friend of mine in high school drove a Caddy exactly like that (same color even). Imagine a sub-5-foot Asian girl driving that enormous beast.

In violation of the stereotype, to the best of my knowledge she never collided with anything.

All those cars are extremely well done. Thanks for sharing.

All of those other beautiful cars kind of make that DeLorean look like a toaster.

Years ago one of my neighbors had a 57 Eldorado Biarritz like the one in the first picture, but his was red.

What a gorgeous piece of machinery.

Thanks for posting these pics.

Bob.
