We have been invited to display our 1959 Cadillac Hearse along with other 1959 Cadillacs, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1959 cadillac models. So, I have been very busy with both my leadlight work and preparing the hearse for display and sorting out props appropriate to the hearse for an "interesting "display.

I may not be around much over the next few days due to both work commitments and the Hot Rod Show.

But if anyone's interested I will take some photos. There is likely to be photos in hotrod magazines later on as well of this show, and not necessarily the hearse.

My husband managed to buy a coffin and a full sized skeleton, anmd we have the usual spook type display pieces as well. Ken named the skeleton LURCH :)

Hi Kaz, what is the year of the first caddy?

If you mean the first ever Cadillac............

 

The first Cadillac took its maiden drive on October 17, 1902, with Alanson Brush at the wheel. Alanson Brush was a Leland and Faulconer engineer who went on to develop his own car.

 

 

1903 Cadillac Model "A" the company's first production model.

In January 1903, Cadillac made its debut at the Third Annual National Automobile Show in New York City.

Leather jacket and a bandana, ciggie in the teeth, coffin ring on his finger. Maybe sunnies :)

 

A mate has loaned us a ghoul that rotates its head and laughs and eyes light up.

The ghoul in the back is on loan from a fellow hearse owner. Its animated and its head turns around, eyes light up and flash and it emits a demonish laugh.

I just love the work you've done on that Caddy. Photos are great and I bet it attracts a good deal of attention from the show goers.
