August 2013 Car of the Month

1935 Cadillac IMG_8095 IMG_8096 IMG_8097 IMG_8098 IMG_8100

 

This celery green 1935 Cadillac was modernized for today’s comfort and efficiency without spoiling the beauty of it’s former days. Under the hood of this Caddy lies 500 cubic inches and 400 hp auto-transmission. Inside it’s interior has been redone with full grain leather in a velvety cream color. It has 6 way power seats, stereo system, and brand new AC. One of Ricks favorite, it gets a lot of attention from our visitors and is the number one photographed car in the collection.

Shiny new Texaco fuel truck

Rick took a 1 ton 1926 Chevy truck and converted it into a Texaco fuel truck.  It is all original even down to the wood wheels. It’s a 3 speed, 4 cylinder little mover. The tank came from a 1925 fuel truck needing extensive restorations. Rick didn’t feel like waiting to have a fully assembled fuel truck so he swapped out the tank and will probably restore the 25′ sometime next year.
