Judging from the badges, this is a Cadillac Fleetwood from the early '50s.
Look at all of that chrome. I must say that I really dig the giant bullet tips on the front bumper.
Even if its chrome is tarnished, this Cadillac still has plenty of appeal.
Here's a closer shot. I really love the details on this behemoth.
Check out how the front wheel is tucked into the fender. Designs like this stand the test of time, at least in my eyes.
Surprisingly, the interior is complete. All it needs is a good cleaning.
I banged and bloodied my shin against that protruding rear bumper. I think this car didn't like me snooping around it too much. I can only imagine how wealthy the original owner of this car must have been. Not only is this ride a Cadillac, it is also a long-wheelbase version. These babies cost as much as a house back then. Treasure or trash? Is this car worth saving? Share what you think in the comments box below. And if you have photos of cars that you want to share, do get in touch!
*UPDATE: This car is currently undergoing a full restoration. However, the original engine will be replaced by something more efficient. This Fleetwood's future? It will become a wedding car as soon as the restoration is complete. At least we will see it driving on the road.
