hi all,
I've been reading and looking for info on this site for a while now so I thought I would share a couple of photos of my recently acquired 1967 deville .

I bought this car just before xmas from the guy who imported it into Australia from Colorado
I rang the seller listed on the U.S. title last week and he confirmed that his 92 year old father, 2nd owner , drove this car from 1974 until 2011 when he passed away. Never been smashed or painted and always garaged.
It has 90,000 original miles , came with all the owners books and a protect-o plate , which I'm told is rare and ads value to the car , (can anyone confirm this ? ) and everything works except the power vent windows and clock.
It just passed our roadworthy inspection last week after a few minor repairs and now on historic registration.
Myself and the family went out for our first cruise today along the coast today and we would have received half a dozen thumbs up , smiles and whistles from on lookers
I have been a memeber with the Cadillac La Salle club of Australia for ten years as well
I have also owned a 62 coupe and a 60 sedan but nothing beats a convertible.
I'm looking forward to making minor improvements here and there as I can.
Once again , great to be a member of this great site for stories and tech info to help us guys down under that love these cars.
Regards
Martin
Adelaide ,Australia

Nice car. That color works well with a convertible body. I don't always like the convertibles in pictures
