Dad is living in Oregon. His current project is his '40 LaSalle coupe street
rod. Powered by a 500 cubic inch Cadillac engine. NICE!
May '09 update
Beautiful maroon paint now graces the arrow straight body. 1940 was the last
year for the LaSalle line which was built by G.M. in their Cadillac plant.
Keeping with the luxury theme, Buzz added such options as tilt steering wheel,
power windows, power 4 wheel disk brakes, A/C, automatic trans., custom instruments,
Ford 9''rear end and power steering.
Here is a picture from the internet of a stock version of the same model '40
Dad's 78th birthday fell on Memorial Day last year which gave a superb cause
to go on a 3 day visiting excursion. Buzz hopped on Brandon's 700 Yamaha and went
for a test drive!
Dad picked up his LaSalle, with fresh upholstery from Chico,Ca. after he returned
from the Bonneville Salt Flats.
Here is a picture of the speedster my Dad was
scheduled ot drive, but conditions prevented.
Firebird donor car sacrificed it's front clip, enabled suspension upgrades.
