… a gorgeous apparition appeared in the doorway! The gleaming glistening silky smooth cherry red duco, almost dripping in chrome, of a fully restored 1959 Cadillac! Hubba hubba! :-D

I’d spent near to three hours poking around the beautiful classic autos at Shannons and was about to leave, when …

  • Hehehee, thanks Jordan :o)) … he just chuckles, shakes his head and
    says, “here we go again!” when he sees the ‘chrome addict’ at work ;o))

    really great dof… you didn’t have this for the contest though did you?

  • Thank you Jill :-D
    Yes, a bit excited about this one, when I saw it up on the screen at home :o)
    But sadly, not in time for the challenge, hadn’t discovered the treasures at Shannons yet :o/

    Another lovely series Ell…. great work.. :)

  • Hiya Gordo!! :-D
    I’ve been forgiven?? Oooh was so worried I’d offended you with my faux pas!

    This Caddy was jaw-droppingingly gorgeous!! Her owner had driven her to Shannons, to get a value assessment (I think?) and/or book her in to the next specialist auction … yes, for sale, the guy told me they have three others (!!!) and not enough room for four … she is 6m’s long, after all ;o))
