Eldorado fins, baby, whitewalls and skirts

Rides just like a little bit of heaven here on earth

Well buddy when I die throw my body in the back

And drive me to the junkyard in my Cadillac

--Bruce Springsteen, "Cadillac Ranch"

Oh man! Old Cadillacs are the bomb.

Yes, they are, anonymous.

I have always enjoyed the look and ride of older-model Caddies. the 1959 Eldorado is a great car, as is the 1976 Fleetwood, the last of the dinosaurs.

James Dean in that Mercury '49
Junior Johnson runnin' thru the woods of Caroline
Even Burt Reynolds in that black Trans-Am
All gonna meet down at the Cadillac Ranch

--- caught a $25 bleacher ticket at Blossom in Cuyahoga Falls last Friday. A fusion "CR - Mystery Train" version ws performed. Great show - like a history lesson set to various American music genres.

Those Caddies bring a tear to my tired eyes. I used to think that they were ugly, back then.
