First purchases to fix up the 1969 Cadillac DeVille Convertible

I’ve got an appointment tomorrow to get a tune up done on the caddy.  I want to make sure it runs well and hopefully the repair shop will be able to fix some of the other issues like the headlights not coming on, windows not rolling up (although you can hear the motor), etc.

In the meantime, here are a few things that I’ve purchased for the car thanks to the help of the good folks at CadillacForums.com and the wallet vacuum also known as eBay :)

One of the reasons I bought the car. So the whole family (3 kids in the back) can ride in the convertible.  Finally a 5 (actually 6 seats if you count the 3 in the front) convertible!

I want to replace the old seat belts

Just in case I wanna man up and fix the car myself…

    The way that thing looks, you definitely need a cover – not for it’s protection, but yours. :P

      Yeah, I got it mostly so the neighbors wouldn’t call a tow truck on me :)
