What's with these wimpy little engines?
1972 Cadillac Eldorado convertible.
500 cubic inch V-8.
In my garage, about 30 feet away. The 4bbl quadrajet carb is about 15 feet away on the kitchen counter, with my wife caught between dismay & amusement.
Currently white & beige, but I plan to turn it red with white top by the time I'm done.
And it will have significant amounts of custom wood, by necessity rather than choice.

And for Fr. Serge:
My first car was a '74 superbeetle. Today I have a Miata, which was as close as I could come to what the Karman Ghia was. For a while we had mine, my brother's regular '74 beetle (previously my grandfather's), and my father's '64 all in a row on the front curb.
