    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.
    Good things may come to those who wait, but only the things left over by those who hustle.

    Chase your dreams and make it happen!

    Like I always said about fidelity when I was married. Just because you have a Chevy in the garage, doesn't mean you can't enjoy driving a Ferrari once in a while.

    I'm blissfully single, so I can drive whatever whenever! But, in matters of fidelity, I subscribe to the "look but don't touch" school of thought.

    The car will probably need another restoration by the time this one is done.

    Since this thread was started, I bought my car and fixed it up, then it got hit and blew a head gasket, sat for almost 2 years, and had a new drivetrain put in it.
    Surely, it doesn't take almost 3 years to paint and reassemble a car.

    I agree but on the other hand, -as someone already wrote on this thread- good things come to those who wait

    Re: White...or Blue?

    Well, as Ray already knows, I finally switched body shops about 2 months ago. The seats had been redone (quite beautifully, I might add), and I had no car to put them in. So, with the help of the upholsterer (great older guy), I got a new body shop. The new guy did a thorough inventory and discovered a goodly portion of the trim was missing, as well as a few more critical items. After spending a month and more searching for a parts car, I gave up, bit the bullet, and bought the missing parts piecemeal. Most fortunately, there's a business just down the street from the body shop that deals in nothing but old Cadillac parts. Two whole wherehouses full of every part you can imagine for every Cadillac built from the late 1940s up to about 2000.

    So, reassembly is proceeding, after which the interior goes together. With any luck, Babe will be back together in time to see 2013 in. All y'all keep your fingers crossed!

    I hope you didn't pay the other body shop for their time...
