Love This Car, 1st & Only Old Car I've Ever Owned. — I wish I knew more mechanical things to do more or most of the work required to get the car to its potential. I've owned the car since 1995 & have only had it to 2 car shows due to a non- working brake booster that should of been replaced when all the brake work was done & for some reason it wasn't replaced. It has acceleration just no brakes other than low gear & the emergency brake, the handling in the front will need new suspension up front as the leaf springs in the back have been replaced with new leaf springs. It needs to be restored & its not a parts car. Just wish the economy could support these old cars because once they are gone they are not coming back. This car has no gas mileage. The maintenance is costly. Its a lot of fun to drive would be more fun to drive if I could get it to stop otherwise its surely turns heads for sure & the only car I've ever owned without seat belts, something 56 years old you wouldn't think would have power steering, power brakes, power seat or power windows & yet still have 4 cig lighters/ash trays & no seat belts or air bags. I hope whomever gets this car restores it to its stock appearance & stature. Otherwise I would dislike it a lot if this car ends up in the scrap yard it would break my heart to see it there as that is where I found the 1956 Cadillac Eldorado with vinyl top, autronic eye, gold sabre wheels, batwing air cleaner & dual 4s.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Cadillac Style & Options

Cons: No brakes

First & Only 3rd Place Ever At A Car Show... — I like the fact that it didn't require seatbelts to drive, power steering, power windows, power seat, just wish the power brake booster was working properly I'd be driving it right now back & forth to work on the weekends. Cya

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Can't get anymore 50's then this one.

Cons: Trying to find parts.

Its A Beautiful 2dr & They Don't Make Them Like This Anymore. — No performance this car was driven by an 82yr old lady who used to drive it to Turtle Lake, WI to play bingo at the casino. An AMERICAN MADE 56yr old car-the valve cover gaskets replaced, the gas line was replaced due to someone or some how the gas line was twisted off at this car show so unsure as to how it happened so I replaced it. I've done all the oil changes & radiator flushes since I've owned it. My Uncle helped me a lot with the brake jobs as he also did on other cars I've driven over the years he's still missed & he passed away shortly after Thanksgiving 2008 same weekend another Uncle passed away. Valve Cover Gaskets replaced by Dan Strong & myself. Jim Nordberg also helped me with this car along with Phil Hammond. Aaron Apel helped me with the gas lines, wheel bearings, & springs. Needs body work. The interior is all original except the shifter knob is now broken since it rolled off the trailer in Cadott, WI back to storage. Ash Trays have been pulled as all 4 lighters have been misplaced & all the ash trays have been pulled to distract others that I knew from high school thinking that they could smoke in my old car they were wrong. Exterior styling is all there just its rusting out in places because its in WI & unsure if it's ever been driven in the salt. Good gas mileage yeah right for a 3000lb car with a V8 & a 4-barrel. it's not too bad if you only drive it 50 miles per year. A brake booster needs to be replaced which I've been finding out $700 was lowest price for a replacement brake booster so as far as a fun car to drive would be better if the brake booster worked. Back in 2000 I thought the $800 & several 72hr work weeks went to replacing all the brake lines & I thought the Brake Booster was part of the deal in getting the brakes fixed but I was wrong, it wasn't. It would be more fun to drive as then I'd be able to go to more car shows with it just due to no brake booster.

Pros: I like the car because its a part of American Automobile History.

Cons: Needs to be restored.
