Great Cars Along the Highway. Colombo, Sri Lanka

IMG_9186

One of the rarest cars I ever countered during my travels to Sri Lanka, in fact, the only one of its type I’ve seen in the country, is this classic Cadillac coupe.  Parked in front of the Galle Face Hotel, it was decorated for one of the many weddings held here.

It’s obviously a Cadillac, and appears to be a Coupe de Ville from the mid 1950s with some post purchase customizations.  Anyone know anything more about this car?

Great Cars along the Highway…. Winnipeg

P1000523

A beautiful classic car spotted while visiting my dad in Winnipeg.  It was parked in the lot of a shopping mall — well removed from all other vehicles (wisely so, I think).   One of my  classic cars, a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air.  Obviously lovingly maintained.  I didn’t get to talk to the owner, but I think the photos tell their own story.
