Cadillac is currently the second oldest American automobile manufacturer behind fellow GM marque Buick and is among the oldest automobile brands in the world. Depending on how one chooses to measure, Cadillac is arguably older than Buick. Cadillac was founded in 1902 by Henry Leland,[5] a master mechanic and entrepreneur, who named the company after his ancestor, Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac, the founder of the city of Detroit. The company’s crest is based on a coat of arms that Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac had created at the time of his marriage in Quebec in 1687. General Motors purchased the company in 1909 and within six years, Cadillac had laid the foundation for the modern mass production of automobiles by demonstrating the complete interchangeability of its precision parts while simultaneously establishing itself as America’s premier luxury car. Cadillac introduced technological advances, including full electrical systems, the clashless manual transmission and the steel roof. The brand developed three engines, one of which (the V8 engine) set the standard for the American automotive industry. Cadillac is the first American car to win the prestigious Dewar Trophy from the Royal Automobile Club of England, having successfully demonstrated the interchangeability of its component parts during a reliability test in 1908; this spawned the firm’s slogan "Standard of the World." It won that trophy a second time, in 1912, for incorporating electric starting and lighting in a production automobile.

1968 Dodge Charger R/T – The Trio (In Good Business)

1968 Dodge Charger R/T - The Trio (In Good Company)

There was a 4 calendar year time period from 1986 through 1990 when these 3 cars saved every single other firm, tucked absent in a non-descript storage building around an industrial place in Yakima, WA.

This grainy, awful (and priceless) image tells the tale about how the Charger, a 1969 ½ 440 6-Pack Super Bee, and a 1967 440 4-speed Plymouth GTX had been in storage with each other when I went again to college many miles absent.

Early in 1983 I persuaded my dad we required a family job that we could turn wrenches with each other on and potentially turn a profit at the conclude. I uncovered a 1967 Plymouth GTX in “rough” problem and immediately after 2 yrs of sweat, cash, and exertion, it turned out awesome.

Very unexpectedly, I uncovered an previous drag racer with a stable 1969 ½ 440 6-Pack Super Bee (ran 11’s) in 1985 and with some luck persuaded him to sell it to us. An additional calendar year later with much more sweat, much more dollars and much more exertion, it also turned out awesome.

This remarkable Trio remained with each other, dusty and frozen in time, until early 1991 when each the Super Bee and GTX had been marketed.

I typically imagine of the heady times when I owned, at minimum partially, 4 traditional muscle mass cars, (my day by day driver was a 1969 G.T.O.) but some of my fondest recollections are of the times my dad and I expended with each other restoring the GTX and Super Bee.
