Here are a few more odds and ends from Mecum…
Looks like this was pretty damn fun. I'll have to make it to one sometime…
That Cadillac is surprisingly not the first classic Cadillac I've seen with a huge blower…
I have unhealthy amounts of want for that glorious Town & Country. Upon typing this a chill just went up my wife's spine.
Neat! Turns out that Town & Country isn't stock (which is news to me since I know very little about these fine beasts).

"The Town & Country has always been a mix of Newport and Newyorker styling. However, in 1976 the Newyorkers got upgraded to Imperial trim and many wished the wagons also got upgraded as well. This owner built his own dream car. He added the front header with the flip open headlamps and grille to create the wagon that never was."
An improvement over the original, which is an already impressive specimen of longroof.

I like Cadillacs. I like custom Cadillacs. I like drag racing. I like blowers on street cars. I do not like that Cadillac. To each his own, but I'll pass on this one.
Now, the boat and the Wagon? Oh my…. Imagine towing the boat with the wagon… it would be a Woodgasim, a Neutron bomb of Malaise.
That Alabama State Trooper Javelin looks nice! Some day, you know, after I have a massive, 100 car garage and billions of dollars to be stupid with, one of those will be in my garage.
Not that they cost anything too crazy, they're actually not too bad, so maybe I'll have it before I make my billions.
