Picture and Pictures

As a hockey fan, I enjoy seeing pictures of the Cup-winning team getting their day with the Cup (even when it isn't the Bruins). But in this one case, though I am usually looking at the Cup, I couldn't take my eyes off the car.

The car!

That, my friends, is an absolutely pristine 1968 Caddy. I knew at once that it wasn't a '69, like the one I had in the mid-80s, because the headlights changed from stacked to side by side, but it is close enough to bring back all sorts of wonderful memories. Perfect car for a little Cup parade.

Meanwhile, her highness would like you to know that, first, the vet gave her a clean bill of health, no pre-hyperthyroid here, and second, she remains extremely adorable.

In case you wondered.

There can be no doubt - her adorable meter goes up every time I see her.

p.s. The car's pretty nice too.

I'm so glad your cat is doing well! I don't know anything about cars, but it looks nice!

Yay for the good health news!

And I looked at that Caddy picture and thought, that's not a '69 but it's not too far off and your description is a delight!

My father was an art dealer specializing in contemporary French. He wanted to look like a successful art dealer. He had six of us kids to pack into a car. Living in Washington DC, guess what there's lots of? Guess what there was zero market for the used ones at the time so you could pick one up for less than a new station wagon?

Which is why we had a '69 used embassy limousine pulling a camping trailer back in the day.

When they finally sold it 14 years later it was for the same amount they'd paid for it because by then there definitely was a market.
