    I dunno, I still think the opposite. Clearly the car has been modified, but done in a clean fashion. The fact that the owner even has a wiring diagram made up for the modifications indicates that he's not unfamiliar with electrical systems. I see tons of fire extinguishers at car shows since it is a highly recommended item to carry around. I admit that I wouldn't have put it that spot...

    I agree all should have them, and a cutter heavy enough to cut a battery cable in the trunk. A fire extinguisher will stop what the electrical starts in fire, but only cutting the cable will stop the situation.


    Still makes for a funny ad!

    I dunno. Looking through the text:
    "I have a 1964 Cadillac sedan deville series 62 with 56,000 original miles on the chasis and arond 75000 on the engine. Currently registered with no smog needed. Salveged title due to a car hitting the back driver side door as seen in pics. Runs and drives great very smooth ride. It has a 472 7.7 Liter Cadillac motor out of a 1969 cadillac. glass pack exhaust. Spare white wall tire. Wire Diagram for the whole car. All lights work. wired for a stereo. Lowered 2 inches. Really fun car to drive around lots of attention and everyone loves. Very smooth and lots of power. Its fast for how big it is."

    First you have a chassis with 56,000 miles on it but you have an engine with 75,000 miles on it. What happened to the low mileage engine? Did he burn it up in a fire? Dynamite it? Kind of strange.
    Then we come to the salvage title due to a rear door smack. Hmmmm...... Obviously it wasn't fixed There is wiring in that door too. How safe is that. It could have bent the frame too. What insurance company totals out a car for a smack in the door?
    Wiring diagram yes but probably because he Mickey Moused the wiring harness so bad that you need one. lol lol You at least know where to start when you rewire the whole thing.
    All of these things have me concerned when I see a fire extinguisher at the ready like that.
    "The dash is on fire again. Get the fire extinguisher like we did last time."

    You sure you don't want to mount the cutter under the dash for easy access? Fire extinguisher in the trunk is fine with me. You have to get the ones that are designed for electrical fires though. The wrong stuff can make it worse.

    Wow, that second to last one (88) is CLEAN. I've never seen an engine bay on one of these cars so perfect. Then again, I live in Canada.....

    That is pretty clean. My local carwash(the ones where you get out and let them do it) also cleaned engine bays. I showed them my nasty 307 engine and he said it was no problem. They only charged $50 too.

    The problem with mine is lots of surface rust.

    You would have to disassemble the front end and repaint the vertical braces/ frame. Mine has alot of surface rust, but it wipes off, exposing the black paint.

    I suppose I should soap and water mine carefully as it really isn't rusted---just dirty.

    Too bad this is 350 miles away from me. I would pick it up just to mess around with if it were close.[COLOR="Silver"]
