Cadillac Club : 1949 Cadillac
1949 Cadillac Fastback
Really Sweet Looking
This is another beauty that I was lucky
enough to see when I was out in
Las Vegas at the car show. When I first saw this car I really had no
idea that it was a Cadillac. I seen this car from the back at first and
since it was custom made it did not have the typical rear end of
from the 1940's.
The rear bumper or I should say tail is
actually from a 1954 Mercury. That's right a Mercury, this owner apparently
knew what he wanted when they made this car.
The high gloss paint job on this classic
Cadillac really made it stand out among the other cars at the show.
Considering this show which runs all year round at the Imperial Palace
casino on the strip had plenty of cars that any car owner would love to call
As you can see this car really doesn't
look like a Cadillac from the front either. I had to take a few looks at it
myself. The rear end of this caddy is probably about 2 inches off the
ground. There is no way this could ride down the street in New York City
that is for sure.
I really didn't get too much information on
this car as the photo that I took of the little placard that they had in
front of the Caddy didn't come out too well. I just pulled this up from
searching this Cadillac online.
