Well, Hello!

I have been a Member of several auto Forums and I have been looking for a Cadillac forum for a while. I am 25 Years old, From a small town in MN. I have a 75 Coupe Deville d'Elegance in Cerise Firemist paint, that I inherited From my Grandfather. It is in OK original shape for a MN car. I am planning a Frame off resto starting this winter as this car is staying with me to the grave. It is pretty low mileage (110K). I belong to the Northstar region of the Cadillac Club.

I am a Gear head through and through. I Love cars, More specifically Big Body on Fram cars. I have a 1995 Impala SS with a Built LT1 that is my other Toy. I also have a really Cool (To me anyways) 1977 GMC C15 with a 250 I6 and a 3 on the tree! :thumbsup: .

What I am here for is some advice, help, Parts, and to make some new friends. I hope to stay here for a while.

Anyways, enough Blubbering, here are the pics!

Fcuk, I think it was back around '02/'03 we did a pub crawl around that area. We started in Hugo at Ricci's. I won a tin/metal Miller Lite sign that was in the shape of a bullseye target off the bartender. From there we went to Wyoming, I can't remember which place though. We then cut over to Bethel where we ran into some bikers in the middle of a rally when we pulled over to "Relieve ourselves" & have a few more, this may have been at "The Vanishing Point" not too sure what else is in the area. Took Central/65 down to Ham lake to Ham Lake Lanes. I also remember playing horseshoes somewhere along the way that day. :alchi:

Wow, You get around! The vanishing point is a biker bar so that probably is the place. I was born and Raised in Wyoming (MN) so I bet the bar in that town was the cornerstone.

Yep, that was my college years. I also remember drinking at The Squirrel Cage in between Finlayson & Moose Lake, Underdogs & Willards in Backus/Jenkins, Nothland Tap in Warroad, Mable Murphy's in Fergus Falls, The Padua Pub in Padua, Caddyshack in Brooten, Bucky's in Elrosa, Just about every bar in St. Cloud (I was kicked out of The Red Carpet/Keller bar for peeing in the peanut barrel), etc. :alchi:

There were also road trips to Thunder Bay & Winnipeg Canada, St. Louis, Mo., Blue Springs, Mo., Breckenridge, Co. etc. :alchi: Good times. :alchi:

Hey, John! Welcome to the Forums!!! Better watch out for Chad; he's already likely coveting your car. ;) Also, nice to see another CLC-er branching out. Love that Caddy, I think I've only ever seen one other in that color. I think it looks great on that body style, esp. with the white cabriolet top. Have fun!!

Thanks for the Welcome. I am going to be chewing all your ears off over this car. It looks really good in pictures, but trust me it needs a lot of work, (quarters, Fenders, Doors, etc) but at least it has a gorgeous interior!
