Every Road Is A Lake: 1966 Cadillac DeVille Convertible

This next car comes as a tip from Jim who writes; This is the real deal and from bayside no less. Better check the trunk for a body. Yes, these big DeVille coupe/verts have a colossal trunk that can fit an entire load of your stuff or friends or whatever. But the best part of classic Cadillac cruising is the feeling of total disconnection from the typical driving experience. The hood is so far in front of you that the headlights might as well be in another zip code (it doesn’t really matter because they put out as much light as a zippo on a windy night) and the steering wheel is totally unconcerned with whatever the road (or an opossum) might be doing. So you don’t worry about your Nürburgring lap times or how fast it’ll go in the 1/4 mile — you just enjoy the soothing rocking motions of this road going pleasure craft. Find this 1966 Cadillac DeVille Convertible offered for $13,500 in Bayside, NY via craigslist.
