maybe it’s something that a lotta people outside America don’t understand….how we have this romance with the automobile. We view it as a gateaway to the wide open highway, elegance and freedom, able to take us anywhere we wish to go….leaving the stress and daily rat race behind us. It is even more prevailing in classic cars. The reflection on the past, when elegance, romance, style, and a simple life is what it equates. And speaking of romance, style and elegance, the Cadillac had all that. This is a 1949 model….and I wish it was mine. I wish I could just get in it and drive, westward California. Yeah romance the American way…
Thoughts welcomed!

    There’s quite a few people that do understand John, more than you can probably imagine. American cars between ‘32 to ’70 are works of art in thier own right and especially when modded. I have Street Rodder mags from the 70’s, one of my favourite films is American Graffiti. I can only imagine how great it must feel, to jump into a V8 powered muscle car and head off for a trip on the open road, passing fantastic scenery on the way, surfcity here we come !!
