Manuel was one of the first to drive his Eldorado to the Cadillac BIG Meet this year all the way from Düsseldorf. On his way he stopped by my garage and I gave him tour and showed him my humble collection.
Getting the paint clean took forever
I already fully cleaned the 58 Seville for the Cadillac BIG Meet weeks ago - so I just had to dust it off :-)
My wife drove the 74 and I drove the 58 to the show - here is a picture at the hotel parking lot
One of the highlights for me was to see my former 66 CDV once again - this car is so fantastic. It really is a pity I had to sell it… :-(
On the hotel parking lot we had the opportunity to photograph my friend Lucky´s breathtaking 1958 Eldorado Biarritz
