Default Kim's Easter present

Since we typically do not give gifts for Easter - substantial ones anyway - I figured she'd never suspect this. It is our latest "barn find", straight out of a 20-year hibernation in a small, rural Iowa community.

This beauty is all original and quite a prize if we do say so ourselves. We're not ready to "officially" reveal it yet, but here's a sneak peek. As you can see, there were several interested onlookers as we brought her out for the first time in so many years.

Our thanks to fellow PCS member and friend, John Royark, for leading us to this beauty, trusting us to take her into our care, and revive her to former glory.

Our mechanic is just as enthusiastic about this project. In the two weeks he's had her in his care so far, she's already been given the royal treatment; her 58,000 mile 429 engne has come back to life and is running smoothly and quietly.

As for Kim, she is head over heels for this car...seriously. Though it wasn't my initial intent to have it be hers, figuring she'd just say, "oh, that's a nice car; what are we going to do with another one?" she really took an immediate fancy to this 'ol girl. I don't think I could get it away from her now!

Congratulations to Kim on your Easter present. I guess that this will make Tony and the car keepers forever now. My guess is that it is a 1967 Miller Meteor Cadillac combination in Sudan Beige.

Tony... I don't know who owns the trailer, but I sure would love to have first dibs on it if it comes up for sale. Paul

Tony, what a neat find! Not only did you unearth a '67... but it looks to be matching color to compliment your '73!!! Looking forward to updates on this one.
I'm guessing Superior... looks like an arched roofline and immediate transition back from the top of the windshield. (these "teaser shots" are so cool)

P.S. everything in Iowa is RURAL

Tony, looks to be a great find I hope to see the progress as this gorgeous car is brought back to life. I'm going to go with '67 Superior on this one just a guess...

Default Not yet, Steve!

She's not ready for proper photography yet. I can't bring myself to unveil her just any old way, especially knowing you are watching!

Besides, a little drama and suspense never hurt this group...
