Classy Cadillacs

One I found online from the local paper, not sure of the builder...Elmwood Place, Ohio

Based on the oval tunnel lights, I'd guess it's a 1957 Superior.

This low mileage '69 Rescuer was also on the lot, stripped of all warning devices.

The second shot shows how the same car looked a year earlier, shortly after being traded in to Dennis.

Ken Novak and I attended the Dennis Distributors auction back in 198? along with Carl Woener and Dale Cooper. Those were some of the roughest pro cars that I have ever seen on that auction! I seem to recall that a lot of the coaches left the country.

1986...the place was also packed with various coach parts of many manufacturers and tons of sales literature/photos. I still have it boxed away in my library.
 
Anyone happen to have any pictures of a Saffron Metallic (and I believe brown top) '77 M/M from Wabash and/or Fort Wayne, Indiana? Im very curious to see what my hearse looked like in it's prime back in the day.
