Love the Dardenelle cloth! I ended up throwing a 70 wheel on my 69 FWB until the day I can have the original wheel rebuilt.

Keep insurance on it..... It isn't that much and you'd kick yourself if anything happened..... Working on the carb could cause a fire,etc.

The joy in your post is contagious, I am smiling as I read it!
It makes my heart sing, and brings back memories of my first Cadillac 37 years ago!:cloud9:

Whilst I've yet to drive my Cadillac, hopefully on the road by October, I fell in love with my 1978 Lincoln Mark V and Town Coupe and just love driving them and receiving comments from others. Good luck with yours.
