    Indeed. But, you'd be guaranteed of having the only one wherever you went.

    Did they build more than one of the Eldorado Brougham Town Cars? I have a feeling that car is long gone from that junk yard and will be appearing at pebble Beach in about ten years.

    I really don't know. Those pics where taken from one of the bigger Caddy bone yards here in Canada, Port Sydney Ontario to be exact. Here are some more pics from there:

    Hell, I might be interested in buying it to restore if I know it could be bought! Without knowing more than the pictures could allow this car could be really something!

    Re: Junkyard finds thread

    No, it takes more than mere money, it takes a love of the automotive art form. There are those who think a car is worth restoring because of its' investment potential .... and then there are those that that think a car is worth restoring because it has intrinsic arstistic value.

    It has been my privilege to experience cars that were art forms.... that exceeded the mere prestige items of the moment and became "classics" to those who valued such things. The Cadillac Brougham Town car falls into this category. I would be privileged to contribute to its' restoration, if that were possible.

    ----------

    I have loved the automotive art form since I first wanted to drive a hearse! While I know my dad loved cars and has always endorsed my love of real automotive art, I know it was really my Uncle Ralph who knew we shared a love of the art that was created in the creation of really beautiful and great automotive art. Back when great cars were really just used cars Uncle Ralph saw the beauty and artistic worth in these old cars and put his money, not really all that much, into collecting Cords (my favorites) Dusenburgs, V-16 Cadillacs and Marmons ..... not to mention 1903 Fords!

    I remember the thrill when he used to visit, the thrill of him showing me the first rubber model of a Mark II Continental and his excitement at showing me this little rubber model. I loved getting to drive his collection of Thunderbirds (1955,1956 and 1958) and I loved his trust in me, when I was in very shaky territory following the death of my father to trust me with the carrying out important duties in his business. More than just grateful, I am truly thankful for this man's empathy and trust during a very difficult period of my life. He took joy in my ownership of one of the first commercial Lamborghinis ... he also took joy in my ownership of an XK E-type and he would have loved the Seville STS's.

    I just have to say "Thank you, Uncle Ralph" for your support of those things that I loved. You support of these things allowed me to understand the passions of others and to support others in their dreams and ambitions.

    All of those that have dreamed and achieved success have had an Uncle Ralph or an Aunt Tony ... not to mention our parents who believed in us enough to make us who we are!

    Re: Junkyard finds thread

    Went junkyarding today just to see if they'd gotten anything new in in the month or two since I've been. Boy have they!

    1976 Coupe DeVille:






    Complete with 500!


    What I do believe to be a 1981 Seville, since it had a 368 with plastic valve covers:


    AND A FACTORY FREAKING CB RADIO!!! (I know the picture is kind of blurry, but I had CB as a selection on the switch!)


    A '93 Fleetwood Brougham with a beautiful blue interior.


    It also had VERY new brake rotors and pads:


    I'm really sad about this one. An '82 to '83 Coupe DeVille, completely devoid of rust (at least as far as I could see from where we stood). I asked the guy behind the counter what was going to happened to it, and he said it would be in the yard in a day or two. I'm going back this weekend possibly for a radiator and trim parts.


    All in all, it was a good day's hunting.

    Still prefer a factory Hearse, but if I hypothetically was given that thing...when it was still complete and functional...I could find a use for it.
