    Sorry Doc this time I’m not agreeing. Just not a Caddy guy but if it had been maybe Galaxy 500. Now that’s a boat.

    Nice road yacht, Doc. Of course, it had to be blue.

    At least it isn't a Ford, or (shudder) a Mopar.

    I haven't been truly happy with a car since I had my last Studebaker.

    Just guys who like caddies. You don't have to drive one. I love Cuda's but don't drive one. Now if Doc would have posted an older one convertible I would be more willing to like it. Doc no offense, I think it is a fine car just not for me but if it's your thing more power to you. I think you need this one.

    Last thing I've ever wanted. I've had mostly Chevys. My wife always like Buicks and Oldsmobiles. I've always like Pontiacs but I've never owned on. I've had mostly small cars actually. I'm not that much into giant road boats.

    The old 383 was a great engine. Short stroke, wide bore and even in dead stock form would run like crazy. A friend had a ‘69 Roadrunner with a thoroughly beefed 383 that was astounding.

    A friend bought a Mark III when it was 2-3 years old, installed a hot cam, side pipes and meatballs on the back. This was a few months after Commander Cody did their version of Hot Rod Lincoln. It was wild, a baby blue Mark III all rodded up. I guess it surprised a few people as well.

    That's a sweet ride.

    Well, if we're just going to post blue Cadillacs that we think the doctor should drive, then I will nominate this one. The 1957 Eldorado Seville.

    Okay - you guys asked for it - this guy makes great videos of restoring old motors. This one is a nailhead Buick. The time lapse makes it fun to watch:



    And then there is this one - more fun to watch:

    I'm not calling it a butterface, but I will say that it's one car that looks even better from behind.
