Vintage photos of:
My uncle's '58 Cadillac - one of two identical - he had for his funeral director's business in Dundas, Ont. in the late 1950s. I was about 10 when this shot was taken in summer of 1960, with the backdrop being an early-1800s brick shed next door.
As a car-crazy kid in the late 50s, I was awed that he had TWO identical '58 Caddys. I rode in both and couldn't tell them apart, but they were sure a big step up from my Dad's '56 Chev 210 4-dour 6-cylinder three-on-the-tree he had at the time. View full size.
