Convertible

Last Sunday I came upon this beauty parked among all the typical family cars outside the supermarket. I’m embarrassingly hopeless at identifying cars – but surely this must be a Cadillac, right?? Coward that I am, I didn’t dare go too close (like lean in to take photos of the interior) – fearing I might set off an alarm or something! … ;)

Cadillac – Hep Stars*

I’m dedicating this post especially to two of my blogging friends: Eva of Eva Ason’s Art who paints charming water colours of old cars (among other things) – and GB who might be missing his “handbag” (recently having returned from New Zealand to his other home in the Hebrides).

* The Hep Stars was a successful Swedish rock groups in the 1960s; outside the Nordic countries probably  best known as a launching point for keyboard player and composer Benny Andersson, who went on to enjoy worldwide success with ABBA. 

They were the first pop stars I “worshipped” back in my pre-teens … ;)

  2. yep, its a Cadillac. i feel the same way about getting close to cars. bob had one like this, not a convertible, it was a 64 cadillac and we sold it to buy a bed since we did not have one. it was living in the garage and being collected. he still mourns selling it and that was 27 years ago.

  3. This is a real beauty! It looks so long like it goes on forever. Yes, I think it is a Cadillac. That song sounds just a bit familiar. We LOVE Abba!!!

  4. Wow - that's one impressive vehicle. No wonder Sandra's Bob still regrets selling one.

  6. Thanks Monica! I would certainly be missing The Handbag if it wasn't for the totally unsuitable weather we are having here in the UK at the moment. And, yes, the car is a real gem!
