The Car History of Alex Beloff III

BEAUTIFUL LIGHT BEIGE LEATHER WITH HARMONIZING TRIM, ORDERED WITH EVERY AVAILABLE FEATURE IS A 1988 CADILLAC FLEETWOOD BROUGHAM D’ELEGANCE.  THIS  CAR WAS BOUGHT NEW BY MONTY B., MY STATE FARM AGENT IN WALNUT CREEK, CALIFORNIA.  IT HAD HAD SEVERAL MINOR COLLISIONS BUT NO STRUCTURAL DAMAGE.  THIS CAR WAS REPAIRED TO ABSOLUTE PERFECTION. THE INTERIOR ON THE FLEETWOOD IS A ONE PIECE PIECE OF SIMULATED FUR CARPET.

I BOUGHT IT IN 1997 AND GAVE IT TO MY WIFE.  WHEN SHE PASSED AWAY IN 2006, DAUGHTER THERESA NEEDED ANOTHER SET OF WHEELS.  I GAVE THE CAR TO HER AFTER HAVING THE TRANSMISSION COMPLETELY OVERHAULED SO IT PERFORMED PERFECTLY.

SHE WAS LATER T-BONED WHEN SOMEONE RAN A RED LIGHT IN ST LOUIS.  SHE WAS UNHARMED.  THAT RWD CADILLAC, WITH A 14 GAUGE STEEL LADDER FRAME, SAVED HER LIFE.   HEARTBREAKING TO LOSE SUCH A MAGNIFICENT CAR.  THANK GOD IT SAVED MY DAUGHTER’S LIFE.  IT HAD A BRAND-NEW SET OF CORRECT CADILLAC WIRE WHEELS AND VOGUE TYRES FROM GREG PAUL.  IN MY VIEW, THE VOGUE TYRES AND WHEELS WERE WORTH AS MUCH AS THE TOTALED CAR – WHO GOT THE RIMS?

FOLKS, YOU WON’T NEED AN AIR BAG IN THIS CADILLAC.  ANYBODY HITS YOU IN THIS CAR, THEY LOSE.  THIS CADILLAC IS 19’ 6” AND WILL FIT IN A 20’ GARAGE.  A SUBURBAN ESCALADE, EXPEDITION, AND MOST FULL-SIZE PICK UPS WITH A HITCH ARE 21.5’.  THEY WILL NOT FIT IN A 20’ GARAGE EVEN IN A $800,000 HOUSE.  IT BAFFLES ME WHY THESE BUILDERS WON’T EXTEND THE GARAGE 2’ SO YOU HAVE A $100,000 ESCALADE THAT WILL FIT IN YOUR GARAGE.
