Classic Caddy sighting reported.

Earlier this afternoon fellow novice John Petit and I went to gas up one of the vans and put air in the tires. At a Marathon station on Woodward, we spotted a mint condition black '54 Cadillac Fleetwood (almost identical to the one pictured on this website, though the one we saw today had original-looking wide white walls). Speaking with the couple that owned the car, we were surprised to learn they'd won it in a 50th anniversary giveaway sponsored by local landmark Pasquale's Restaurant, right up Woodward from the very gas station we were at. The anniversary and the giveaway are discussed in this article in the (Royal Oak) Daily Tribune. An enjoyable little incident that added something to an otherwise ordinary Saturday. AMDG.
