Detroit Tin

Number of views as of 22nd February 2015 = 930.

The gleaming paintwork, whitewall front tyre and polished chrome of a Cadillac Eldorado Seville, circa 1959.

Don’t know the history of this vehicle, but it somehow made it over to England, and has been painstakingly restored to its former glory.

Not bad for a sofa on wheels!

Location: Bournemouth, Dorset.

Date: 16th May 2010.

Hello and thankyou for visiting my portfolio.

The name RedHillDigital comes from the area where I live (Redhill, in the town of Bournemouth, in the county of Dorset on the South Coast of England), plus my interest in Digital photography.

My real name is Howard and I’m always pleased to receive feedback on my work.

    Beautiful in its own way, but they don’t make them like that anymore (probably just as well) …

  • Point well made Tom, but you’ve got to admit, it looks pretty classy from this angle.

    Great capture and processing, really captures the essence of the “bigger is better” 50’s! Very nicely restored Caddy too!

  • Cheers Bill, thanks for your comments.

    Good take Howard, but im glad they are not on the road in large numbers,with the amount of petrol tankers required to run them there would be no fuel left, Regards Dave.

  • I agree Dave, but probably no worse than most 4×4s!
