That is ugly as shit.

First of all, its a 4 door.

Second, the car is aaout a decade too early for the mods.

Third, the swoopy paint on the side doesn't flow with the lines of the car at all.

Fourth, the choice of colors is horrible.

If you're going to build a Super Fly, it needs to be done right with an Eldorado or Coupe de Ville like this:

I saw you deleted your post. I didn't get to see it. Should have left it. Let the crybabies whine.

You can still read it because "CadillacMike68" quoted what I said in his response.  It is in the blue shaded area --- Reply #1 and #3.

How is it that these old men are acting just like the little whining millenials you see every day?  They're upset by rolling eye emojis?

What a bunch of candy asses.

That car is a piece of shit made with  (most likely) JC Whitney add on parts.  As you can see from above, whether you like them or not, the real Super Fly cars had some artistic merit.  They were built by Dunham Coachworks, not by home grown hacks who bought stick on hardware from a catalog.

Completely contrary to the description.

Granted, have to see it in person,  or at least better pics, to tell.

But I do know that type of work dates back to the 60s, not just the mid 70s when it made the movies.

Just like a lot of 80s and 90s stuff was being done for years before it caught a larger audience.


Not that I care for any of it.

When I was reading the posts I thought, Well, lookie here, the TassHole deletes Geoff too. Turns out, Geoff deletes Geoff!  Roll on the floor laughing Roll on the floor laughing

I guess I still stand in a league of my own with that bunch.

A Mod, who will be nameless asked me why I'm not posting. I said to get rid of TassHole and I will help again. As it stands, I PM my answers to people.

Many times I can get much better descriptions of the problem if a person thinks that they have someone's 'personal attention'. In a thread you get generalities. Details of a problem, no matter how small will get it resolved. If I don't know, I STFU and see what others have to say, then work off of their answers. Some of these clowns will send some poor bastard into a tizzy thinking he has to do a frame off restoration for a points, timing and carburetor adjustment.

Accidentally clicked the thread instead of 'New'.

You know better than that. A 390 in a '65?  head scratching Maybe the 429 anchor.  For that matter, maybe a N* or a 4100... IF it's a custom. Because if you would do that to any Cadillac, you'll try to install a marque killing engine.
