Wheels in the Grass

It’s HUGE Buffalo, HUGE! A 1971 Cadillac Sixty Special Fleetwood Brougham, sitting in a town of Lewiston driveway. With a wheelbase of 133 inches, you’d better have taken this one home before buying it to make sure it fit in the garage. And it wasn’t even the longest Cadillac — the Seventy-Five had a wheelbase of 151.5 inches (and there was a commercial chassis, used for “professional” vehicles which was another four inches long). Luckily they didn’t charge by the yard. The ’71 Sixty Special listed for $7,763 and Cadillac sold 15,200 of them. Laid end-to-end they’d reach from Detroit to the Fiji Islands.
