Photo of the Day - May 12th, 2019

Today's Photo of the Day is a throwback to the SCTA's Bonneville SpeedWeek in 2010 and features my own 1970 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 Formal Sedan. I bought this car in 2009 and had it shipped to my brothers place in San Jose, California, driving it around the San Francisco Bay Area while I was in town for his wedding that year. A year later I was back in the States again for SpeedWeek and took the Caddy on a 5000 mile road trip taking in SpeedWeek, the ANRA Summer Nationals at Bakersfield, the Good Guys Pleasanton show and visiting a couple of cruise ins, museums and a few iconic locations along the way. This car is now here in Perth and my goal for some time has been to get it on the road, unfortunately that's taking some time to make happen, but it's still something I'd like to accomplish some day.
