Santa Cruz Street Sighting - 1964 Cadillac Sedan DeVille
This '64 Sedan DeVille would have been a very classy-looking car when it was new. Painted gleaming black with whitewall tires, full stainless hubcaps and body color fender skirts, and a contrasting white interior, it was a nice mid-range Caddy. Today it wears a bike rack, black tape that I'm almost certain covers severe trunk rust, and various paint wear from a lifetime battling the elements. A lot of the chrome is still good and most of the body still looks solid. Granted, it's not the best example of its kind on the roads, but it's a survivor. If anything, this is the kind of car that should be documented, before it ends up lost forever in a scrapyard.
