    Saw a add in the paper that caught my eye and couldn't resist to take a drive and look at this beautiful car. When I think of classic and streamlined car, I think of Cadillac. I went and looked at a 1955 fleetwood caddy and it was perfect. No rust to find what so ever, had only 55,000 miles on it and a price tag that almost tempted me to buy it. They wanted 12,000$ for it and I had to leave right there or I would have bought it. I am still thinking about this car, it just screams style. :cool:

    For fins, you want a '59. The '55 is understated elegance.

    Can you post a picture or a link to ad so we can see the car? Promise not to steal it out from under you.

    Offer 10, couldn't hurt.

    Heck, for 12, you may as well enjoy life.

    Been doing the same thing over a slightly younger ride....but I have to ask myself.

    Do I want it or NEED IT. It really boils down to finances. You got the dough, let er' roll. :wavey:

    I had to Google it to see what the '55 Fleetwood looks like. That's SWEET! As others said offer 10K and see what happens. Even at 12K, if I had room for it I'd buy it.

    I don't have a link for it, it was in the local paper. It is hard to pass up that car but I think I am going to have to...
