1966 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado: If Only

cadillac-4
This is the 1966 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado convertible. [Ed.: as if there is a difference from a Coupe de Ville] I had a chance at buying one [ed.: a ’65 or ’66 de Ville convertible] in high school.  Dad said no, even at just $275. The convoluted start up process scared him. (It was a piece of crap, after all.)  The 429 V8 under my right foot terrified him. The 10 mpg scared his wallet, in case I ever got stranded.

But, oh, would I be the king of the high school parking lot.  Way more so than in my VW 411.
