Wheels in the Grass

And you thought the clothes of the era were tacky. This early-to-mid 1980s Cadillac Seville has a lot on its plate. From the aftermarket full cabriolet roof, through the fake trunk-mounted spare tire bump, right on down to the wire wheel covers, this car just screams out for an owner with a hairy chest and a shirt opened up down to there. Cadillac offered a full cabrio roof right from the factory, but from the smaller size of this car’s rear window, I don’t think this is one of them. Let’s go out on a limb and say that this Seville, which, even though it’s still wearing plates has been in this Niagara Falls, N.Y. driveway for a while, is a 1983 model. There were 30,430 of them built, at a starting price of $21,440. That much dough would have bought closets full of polyester suits back then. Not that there’s anything wrong with them!
