a "Little" 1953 Cadillac
- Please goto: http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/KiddyKrosillac
I have a "Little" 1953 Cadillac (a custom cut down body from the
front fenders and rear 1/4 panels of a '53 cadillac ) on a 1948
The car almost looks like a little brother to the 1953 Cadillac Le
Mans Dreamcar at the 1953 GM Motorama.
This is a project that my father and some of his work/friends built
back in the 1960s?. I have been told that it may be based on an
article which was feartued in either a mid-late 50's or early
60's "Popular Mechanics" or "Mechanix Illustrated".
My father sold the car many years ago and just last year I was able
to track it down to the foremost owner and buy it back. It sat
uncovered in the owners back yard for the last 20plus years, neither
covered or winterised ( in Wisconsin- OUCH )and is badly in need of
restoration. I have made excellent connections on the Crosley side of
the house, but need to find Cadillac resources.
I am also trying to track down the publication in question that may
have started the whole thing. My father has cancer, and I am trying
to get the Kiddie Kaddy running while he can still enjoy it. For all
I know, this may be the car featured in the questioned feature
article, but I highly doubt it.
Looking forward to your corredspondence and any assistance,
