I FOUND A NOS 1967 CADILLAC T&T COLUMN TURN SIGNAL SWITCH.

I found an awesome NOS part which arrived today! If you have a 67/68 Cadillac with T&T column you know that these are super hard to find and even repaired ones are pricey if you can even find one. I got this one at a good price! I have been looking for a spare switch since 2007 and out of nowhere I was contacted by a very nice …
1967 Cadillac Turn Signal Switch 7805676

This switch is almost impossible to find GM #7805676 ACD# D6230. It is for 1967&68 Cadillacs with Tilt and Telescope column.

MY WINTER PROJECTS 2018/19 - CV BOOTS AND FUEL PUMP

This are my two winter projects for the 2018/19 winter:😞
The Mark III has a leaking fuel pump if it was parked for more than an few days... (It stops leaking after its running for 2 minutes...).
The 1978 Eldorado needs both CV boots replaced ( the original ones just came loose but did not rip after only 40 years slinging grease everywhere). The 78 will also need some minor exhaust work (welding) and either the EGR valve needs to be replaced or the accelaration pump in the carburetor has a problem... it won’t get boring in the dead car season… I had hoped that I wouldn’t have to spend any…

WEBSITE RELAUNCH

Every 3-4 years I am working on a relaunch of my website which is always a LOT of work unfortunately. Some pages might not work perfectly at the moment yet - so please be patient.
If you find errors please let me know and I will fix it asap. I wont update all my old articles to the new design as it would be too much work, but they will still be available.

I did the first version of my website around 1997, so it is around for a very long time now… I have lost track what version the new website will be. Maybe 8.0?
You can find some old screenshots of my websites here.

This is how it all started. Built in Netscape 4.9 IIRC

PHOTOSHOOTING WITH MARILYN

My wife and I were asked to photograph a very special Cadillac in Graz/Austria. Its a super nice 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Seville which is linked to Marilyn Monroe. My friend Christian is the owner of this beautiful car, and as he got a 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz just recently, he wants to sell the Seville as he cant keep them both. If you are interested in owning a great 1959 Eldorado Seville just contact me

I SOLD THE OLD ROADMASTER

Today was a pretty sad day for me as the new owner of our old Roadmaster picked up the car. I sold the car to a fellow car aficionado in Italy where it will be appreciated and loved. My wife and I owned this car for more than 10 years and enjoyed every mile we could drive it. It was our holiday cruiser and we only drove it during the summer months. I had planned to restore the car when I "accidentally" found our new Roadmaster in the fall of 2017.

Me and Remo, the new owner of our old Roadmaster.

I could not keep both of my Roadmasters as I already own too many cars and I do not have the necessary funds to keep it alive. I'm glad that I found a great new owner for it.
With tears in my eyes I took a last video of the car departing. I know - I'm way too much attached to my cars and I hate seeing them go…

A VISITOR FROM AUSTRALIA

Today I welcomed a visitor all the way from Australia in my garage.
I have been knowing Dermot since around 1996 through the internet where we were members in one of the first Cadillac Mailing Lists - the CML. I´m quite sure that the CML was like the first social media platform for Cadillac Enthusiasts. Over the years I had the opportunity to meet some of the members of the CML in real life. I always enjoy…
