    WOW!! Itīs really worth an Hallelujah... Now the train is at its cruising speed and nothing can stop it

    BTW, Iīm surprised at how similar this color seems to my '69īs... Or should I say how similar is my color to yours (must have been carefully chosen )

    Re: White...or Blue?

    It's amazing in person, an exact match for the factory color chip in the 1969 data book. It has so much more depth and pop than the plain dark blue it had when I bought it, with subtle undertones of green in the blue. It really lights up in the sun! It's going to look totally awesome after it's been wet sanded and sandwiched.

    It really seems different from the "before" pics. I suppose you must see it personally under the sunlight to appreciate all of this colorīs beauty... And as you say, itīs not finished yet. Iīm glad that the wait is being worth it

    I would be more of an alcoholic than I am if I were waiting that long for my car to get out of prison. It will be the celebration of all time when this much anticipated 1969 Fleetwood Brougham is completed and back on the road.

    I really don't know how you could be without your car for so long craig. At this rate, my car will be "finished" (on the road with a completed interior) before yours is. Oddly, its been harder having my car at the shop for 6 months than it was to have it sit in my backyard for over a year. I can't imagine having my car sit at a shop for 2 years.

    All good things come for those who wait.

    Why is it that when you buy a caddy, you want every other slick one that catches you eye.

    Like having a hot girlfriend, but still staring at every tail that crosses your path.

    It helps that I have the 77 to keep me entertained , and I keep in mind that both the 69 and the 77 are toys, not my daily transportation. Not that I haven't missed having the 69 to enjoy, but I'd rather see the job done right than push just to have it done, and have it done slipshod. That said, restoring one of these cars is not something I'd do again. It's 'spensive!

    Tell me! I've seen so many Cadillacs these past couple years that I was like, "damn, if I wasn't restoring that Fleetwood, I could totally buy that!"
