Hi everyone. Finally got some new pics of my 1968 sdv at the local show. Also I took some pics of other Caddies I saw.

Got her waxed up for the show.

My 2yo daughter can say "callac" if I point at the car:

Saw this pink 59. A little overdone IMO but he and his family were having fun.

This is NOT my car... but a 67 just a little greener than mine. Check the boomerang.

Owner restored this 69 almost 20 years ago. Note 80s wire caps.

I'd be dreaming if I found that many Caddies all at one show down here. Beautiful '68.

Nice looking '68! The dual exhaust looks good too, it's a shame they didn't come stock with it. I like the interior, the fabric looks great! That Eldo looks pretty cool too, those rims work pretty well for it.

For that guy who restored the red convertible 20 years ago...1987, he must have spent a pretty penny for those 80s wheel covers. Weren't they something like $100 each when new around that time??

Beautiful car and kids....I hope I can get my kids involved in my car hobby...that is when I have kids. Now I see the reason for the Sienna in your fleet.

Great car mharker. The blue shade your car is painted is probably my favorite Cadillac shade, but I don't see many in that general color after the late 70s.

Thanks for the compliments guys. There were a couple more Caddies at the show but I didn't get the pics. A prewar Caddy won top prize. Owned by a younger guy... not sure if he restored it or paid huge bucks for a restored car.

Yeah it's fun to bring the kids to the car shows, but there's nothing for them to do and they get bored fast. We just say don't touch over and over again! My wife brought my daughter in the Sienna but I put a booster in front of the Caddy for my 5yo son, because there's a factory shoulder belt.

I don't think my son's a car guy, he doesn't even play with toy cars. However yesterday he requested (and enjoyed) a ride in the vette so maybe there's some hope. My 2yo daughter seems to point out every motorcycle that goes by... which kind of worries me. Maybe if we have a 3rd kid he/she will inherit my passion.

But as they say... it's a good bet that whatever you like, your kids won't like.
