Eldonkado: 1967 Cadillac Eldorado

We continue our DTween celebration of horrors with this next car, a Cadillac Eldorado that has been mildly donked with 22 inch rims and a raised suspension.  It actually looks menacing and sorta scary in the seller’s parking garage pictures.  Find this 1967 Cadillac Eldorado here on eBay bidding for $4,850 reserve-not-met with 3 days to go and $7,500 buy-it-now located in North Hollywood, CA.

Did you know that early Jack-o-Lanterns (named after the ficticious Jack who tricks the devil into agreeing to not take his soul, but then is also denied entry into heaven, so he is stuck wandering the earth with a lump of burning coal that the devil threw at him used as a lantern) were carved by Irish folk into turnips? The result is more terrifying than the giant squash/pumpkins used by North Americans…and I don’t know where I was going with that thought…hmmm….moving on.

This Eldorado is powered by a 500 cubic inch V8 from a 1970 Cadillac which according to the seller is good for 400 horsepower and 550 ft-lbs of torque.  All that power is mated to the front wheels making this thing a big time front wheel peel machine, even with 22 inch rims.
