The Car History of Alex Beloff III

A LOCAL PERRYSBURG BUSINESSMAN LOOKED ME UP AND SAID, ALEX, I UNDERSTAND YOU ARE THE CADILLAC MAN.  I’VE BEEN TRYING TO SELL MY 1967 ELDORADO FOR ALMOST A YEAR WITH NO SUCCESS.  HE SAID, CAN YOU HELP ME.  I SAID, DO YOU HAVE THE CAR WITH YOU?  HE SAID, I DO.  WE MET NEAR DAN SHRODERS MEN’S WEAR NOT FAR FROM COMMODORE PERRY’S STATUE.  I SAID, WELL IT IS STAND UP CAR. LET ME MAKE IT EASY FOR YOU.  WHAT YOU DO WANT FOR THE CAR RIGHT NOW KEEPING IN MIND I AM GOING TO RESELL IT AFTER I GO THROUGH IT AND ADVERTISE IT AND TRY TO MAKE A FEW BONES?  HIS INITIAL FIGURE WAS NOT REALISTIC FOR ME.  I COUNTERED AND SAID, HERE’S ANOTHER FIGURE, MY FIRST AND LAST AND IF YOU DECLINE IT,  IT WON’T HURT MY FEELINGS.  I WILL TRY AND HELP YOU.  HE SAID, I AM DONE.  GIVE ME THE MONEY. 

I GAVE THE FIRST YEAR FRONT WHEEL DRIVE CADILLAC ELDORADO THE BELOFF TOUCH WITH THE ACCURATE CADILLAC MERCHANDISING PHILOSOPHY AND PRESENTATIONS IN A NATIONAL ADVERTISEMENT AND SOLD THE CAR.  I DIDN’T GET RICH, BUT I WAS HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS.  I MADE A GOOD FRIEND OF A WELL RESPECTED LOCAL BUSINESSMAN.  THERE WAS NOT A CONVERTIBLE IN THE NEW GENERATION ELDORADO LINE UNTIL 1971.
