Poor Little Fool: 1981 Cadillac Eldorado

Sometimes you see a custom car and think “I’m not sure what I’m supposed to make of this…” and other times you think “I’m not even sure what this was made from…”.  This next car fits slightly into the latter category with a small dose of the former, because the seller lists it as a Cadillac Deville, but it looks like an Eldorado to me or maybe an Oldsmobile Toronado.  Whatever the original source, this thing does appear well loved, very customized, but oddly named.  Find this 1981 Cadillac DeVille offered for $12,000 in Marion, IN via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
