Actually found the '59 Cadillac here in Dubai.
A while back I bought an '82 FJ45 Land Cruiser Pick Up and started fixing that up. Started hanging out with the classic car club and then met the guy that used to own my Cadillac. Wanted one of these since I was about 9 years old. Still have my 1:18 scale model. Told him if he ever sells it, I want it. Became good friends, helped him out. 2 Years later he leaves to Canada and I buy the '59
Looked like this when I got it...
Since then, I've upgraded the lighting, and the wheels and tires are now custom made extremely rare (mfg says maybe 10 sets on the planet) 18x8 wire wheels in the original Cadillac style, with a high performance radial whitewall.
Up next... air conditioning, air ride, brighter lighting on the rear end, and disc brakes
There's growing classic car community out here though... and the '59 is proving to be quite popular. Since getting mine, a few more have joined the club.
Blue one was bought online. Green one was bought here from someone else.
