Default 1974 M-M Cadillac Lifeliner ?

Anyone know who this car belongs to? Picture taken at annual muster in Winchester, VA preceding the Apple Blossom Firefighter's Parade on April 30, 2010.





And from the same event a 1948 Chevrolet Barnette.

That first one needs a couple more Ful-Vu lights.

and FENDER SKIRTS! I'd put them on in primer with sheet metal screws before running without them. Nothing looks more naked than a Cadillac that's obviously made to have skirts & doesn't. Sorry, it's a pet peeve

Agreed it's a beautiful Lifeliner, love all the lights & the big "Q" on the roof. Looks like it's in excellent shape! Hadn't seen it before. About a 1975?

It,s a 75 or 76 74 had round headlights. Unless the front group was changed. I can never remember what's what on those 2 years . It is a slight difference in the cornering light trim.

Default 75

It is a 1975 Lifeliner. The grille is more finely textured than a '76 and the '76 would have two thiin chrome stips running horizontally through the parking / cornering lamps.

Great looking rig! I agree that this car is screaming for skirts.

Its for sure a 75. And I agree, it needs skirts bad, it just doesn't look right withoutthem. Very nice looking car though, I like the color, not sure I've ever seen a Lifeliner that color.
