Hello Cadillac Forum Members!
I joined the Cadillac Forum to learn more about new & old Cadillacs, find Cadillac resources and, hopefully, share what little knowledge I have. I am based in the Philadelphia PA suburbs (Go Eagles!). I have ridden in, driven and/or owned Cadillacs since I was 3 years old. I currently own four Cadillacs:
  • 1968 DeVille Convertible (my first classic car purchase, from which I am STILL learning). She's a nice looking 10 footer with original engine, drive train & body that runs great, but an older paint job & body work is due for a refresh.
  • 1976 Fleetwood Brougham. Firethorn with white vinyl top & white leather interior. 95% original, currently with 36,000 miles. Received a HPOF Original designation at AACA Eastern Fall Meet in Hershey last year. This is my favorite, since my father owned one nearly identical. I learned to drive with Dad's Fleetwood (but took the test in a '79 Seville... much easier to park!), drove it in high school and it was technically my "first car".
  • 1996 Fleetwood Brougham, all original with 16,000 miles; Calypso Green with tan leather interior.
  • 2008 DTS (a regular driver with 109,000 miles and still going strong. This was my father's last Cadillac before he had to stop driving.
I am also a member of the Cadillac LaSalle Club (CLC), a certified judge with the Club and member of CLC's Valley Forge Region (VFR). CLC is a tremendous resource for technical, authenticity, restoration & maintenance information on modern as well as classic & antique Cadillacs & LaSalles, and offers fellowship among Cadillac enthusiasts from all over the world. They're a friendly group, locally, nationally and internationally. If anyone has questions about the club, feel free to message me. More information can be found at cadillaclasalleclub.org Local chapter information for the Philadelphia area can be found at vfrclc.org

Some upcoming local and national events:

Thanks for the opportunity to introduce myself and share information about the Cadillac LaSalle Club. I look forward to the discussions on the Forum.
