Home : Scrapbook : Roamin Angel Corner Index : David & Shawn's '62 Cadillac Convertible

1962 Cadillac ConvertibleWhen the owner of this 1962 Cadillac Series 62 convertible brought it to David B. for service, he was only the second mechanic she trusted to maintain her favorite car.  She had purchased it new in San Francisco and had promised her husband before he died that she would never sell it. She kept that promise and named her Caddy “Baby.”  For 30 years it had gone to only one mechanic to keep it in good running order.  When he retired, she gave David’s shop a try.
