The Car History of Alex Beloff III

TRIPLE YELLOW CADILLAC AND BOB CHAMBERS OUR USED CAR MANAGER AT LONE STAR CADILLAC, DALLAS CONTACTED ME.  I WAS SALESMAN OF THE YEAR, HE SAID HE HAD A ONE OWNER MAGNIFICENT TRADE IN THAT HE NEEDED SOME ALMOST RETAIL DOLLARS TO MAKE A TRADE.  I SAID, YES I AM YOUR MAN.  I PAID ALL THE MONEY.  IT WAS FOR MY WIFE TO DRIVE.  SHE WAS TERRIBLY INTIMIDATED BY ITS SIZE AND DIMENSIONS FOR PARKING.  I SOLD THE CAR QUICKLY FOR A SMALL PROFIT.

LAST YEAR FOR THE FULL SIZE ELDORADO.  THE YELLOW PILLOW STYLE LEATHER SEATS SURROUNDED YOU IN ABSOLUTE COMFORT AND ELEGANCE.  THE INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR STYLING INCLUDING SPECIAL WHEEL COVERS AND WHITE WALL TIRES MADE IT TRULY A STAND OUT LUXURY CAR.  A CONVERTIBLE WAS NOT OFFERED THAT YEAR.  THE 1989 WAS DRAMATICALLY SMALLER AND LESS DESIRABLE.  THE CADILLAC ENGINEERS HAD A MAGNIFICENT WIRE WHEEL COVER ON THE NEW ELDORADO.  THEY JUST NEVER TESTED IT IN THE FIELD.  THE FIRST TIME YOU TOOK IT THROUGH A CAR WASH, THE MACHINE BROKE ALL THE SPOKES . . . MORE BLUNDERS IN THE FIELD TO LIVE THROUGH.

NOTE PHOTO DRAMATICALLY ILLUSTRATING HOW THE PADDED FACTORY BIARRITZ TOP AND MOLDINGS CHANGE THE IDENTITY OF A STOCK ELDORADO.
