Gord's 1929 Caddy

Our good friend Gord is an avid car fan.
For those of you who read my blog
and know C. Gordon ... you know who you are ...
yes, that's the infamous Cadillac.
And it's FINALLY on the road!

Gord has been restoring a 1929 Cadillac for many years now.
Almost 30 years, to be exact.
It is finally on the road.

Although the interior still needs a lot of work,
the exterior is looking pretty good.
It still needs some finishing touches,
but to a non-car person like me,
it looks just fine.

Notice the bitties in the background?
We were at a classic car rally a few weekends ago.
It was raining.

Needless to say,
everyone in open cars got a little wet.
These people wipped out their portable convertable top:
a.k.a. plastic.

I bet the Saran Wrap people could market that.

I really admire people who work hard on things like this for years. Good for him!

30 years!
no wonder it looks so old fashioned.

That's impressive! Really cool.

Sweet ride! Saran wrap - how romantic! Could you please have the designers make it more of a bubble wrap style so people could be popping themselves throughout the rally? Like plastic gun fire going off? Heeheehee!
