    Beautiful pics, John. I need to take Sabrina to the coast and get some nice pictures like those.

    I should have gone by Statesville while I was at it. It's the maximum security prison about 4 miles away where all the inmates where moved to when Joliet prison closed a few years ago.

    I forgot to mention, Old Joliet Prison was also the one used to film the show "Prison Break."

    [QUOTE=dirt_cheap_fleetwood;1938778 Gary88, was this the silver bridge you were talking about?
    [/QUOTE]

    That looks like the one off of Rt. 53, I was thinking of the real small one right off Romeo Rd. by the huge coal piles. I think it leads to some kind of walkway.

    Oh, that is a bike path over there and there is a big ole gate with "No trespassing" signs every 10 feet. My other spot is on the other side of the canal but the same side of the bridge.

    Here in the Netherlands you don't have to pay road tax for cars older than 25 years and as a Cadillac Seville is one of the most luxerious cars available for a reasonable price (a Seville in good condition does between $6000 to $10.000). Next to that over here we also know that the 350 Rocket engine from Oldmobile is very reliable and easy to convert to Liquid Petrol Gas (LPG) which only costs about $0.6/l instead of regular 95 which costs about $1.85/l).

    My other Cadillac is '92 Eldorado and you can find pictures here:
    The Eldorado is our family car and the Seville I use as a spare car, but I take it out now and then to keep it running.

    My last car is my '73 Corvette and that is my hobby car.

    That Seville doesn't look bad, but it needs a set of these:

    Actually those hubcaps are for the Devilles of those years; the Sevilles and Fleetwoods had similar hubcaps, but with the wreaths under the Cadillac crest.

    I hope you continue to enjoy to enjoy your seventies Seville. I bought a 1976 Seville new in '76 and liked it enough to keep it for almost 9 years. The notch back Sevilles were very popular in Los Angeles during the seventies and many people considered them to be instant classics. Mercedes and Jaguar were the "Wilshire Taxis" of that period with the notchback seville probably coming in third in popularity among those that could afford them.

    Yes. I have to have something to sink money into besides my Brougham. My Phaeton got cooked going though the mountains and is probably flat as a pancake on a barge to China as we speak. Good riddance.

    Re: Candid pictures of our cars.

    Okay, you all are probably getting tired of seeing pictures of my cars on here, but it's summer and I'm bored. Today's feature, new fog lights for the LSC. The old ones were badly rusted and rotting away so I ordered some Hella 450 series lights, which were the closest in size to the originals that I could find, and made my own brackets to hold them in the factory position. I am thoroughly impressed with them. The beam is 10x better than the original ones and they look better, IMO. I chose the amber ones both to get a more European look and because of personal preference. At first I was going to paint the covers black, but I have grown fond of the current look.
