The Car History of Alex Beloff III

A RETIRED COUPLE TRADED IN A PERFECT TRIPLE WHITE 1990 CADILLAC FLEETWOOD BROUGHAM.  FACTORY WHITE LEATHER, BLUE CARPETS AND DASH, WHITE PADDED TOP AND COTILLION WHITE PAINT EXTERIOR.  IT HAD EXCELLENT TIRES THAT HAD SKINNY WHITE WALLS AND HO-HUM FACTORY WHEEL COVERS.  IT WAS NOT A WOW CAR.  OPENING THE DOOR REVEALED AN INTERIOR THAT WAS UNBLEMISHED EVERYWHERE.  I WAS VERY THANKFUL TO DEVOE INFINITI FOR ALLOWING ME TO PURCHASE THIS CADILLAC FOR A VERY ATTRACTIVE PRICE.  IT HAD BEEN METICULOUSLY MAINTAINED SINCE BIRTH.  I SHIPPED IT TO MEMPHIS.

I HAD A SPARE SET OF CADILLAC CORRECT CHROME WIRE WHEELS THAT HAD RECEIVED THE BELOFF TOUCH ON EVERY SPOKE INSIDE AND OUT.  GREG PAUL IS VOGUE TYRE REGIONAL VP (HE AND I HAVE HUNDREDS OF SETS OF VOGUE TYRES ON THE ROAD OVER THE YEARS).  HE AND HIS RESIDENT VOGUE TYRE MANAGER AT BUD DAVIS CADILLAC HAD A DEVIL OF A TIME GETTING THESE LOPSIDED WHEELS BALANCED PROPERLY ON A BRAND-NEW SET OF VOGUE TYRES THAT GREG PAUL MADE AVAILABLE TO ME AT THE VERY WHISPERING PRICE.  WITH THE TIRES AND WHEELS, IT ENHANCED THE APPEARANCE OF THE CAR DRAMATICALLY VISUALLY GIVING IT A LONGER LOWER LOOK.

I WAS THANKFUL THAT CONNIE DROVE MY WHITE FLEETWOOD TO DALLAS IN JANUARY 2007.   I FOLLOWED IN A HUGE RENTED PENSKE TRUCK CRAMMED WITH FURNITURE AND THE RADIO BLASTING.  CONNIE HAD PREPARED A COMFY BED IN THE BACK SEAT FOR MY TWO DOGS SADIE AND SISSY.  THEY LOVED HER.  WHEN I CALLED HER DURING THE TRIP TO SEE HOW THE POUCHES WERE DOING, SHE SAID, THEY ARE ANGELS  AND THEY ARE ASLEEP.  I SAID, I MUST HAVE THE WRONG NUMBER.   THE DOGS HAD NEVER SEEN STEPS BEFORE WE GOT TO GRAPEVINE OR BEEN AROUND CATS AND CONNIE HAD TWO CATS AND A YORKIE.  THANKFULLY WE HAD A BLENDED HOME EVENTUALLY WITH THE DOGS AND CATS AS FRIENDLY COMPANIONS.

 

THE WHITE FLEETWOOD WAS A CLASS VEHICLE FEATURED AT CADILLAC LASALLE EVENTS WINNING A FIRST AND SECOND PLACE FOR THEIR ANNUAL CAR SHOWS.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE FLEETWOOD WAS THE CHARIOT FOR TV CELEBRITY BOB EUBANKS WHEN HE WAS THE GUEST SPEAKER AT THE 2009 GRAPEVINE HISTORICAL SOCIETY FOR THEIR NEWLY WED GAME EVENING.  THE EVENT CHAIRED BY FELLOW ROTARIAN DUFF O’DELL WAS A HUGE HIT AS WERE THE CLASSIC CADILLACS OF OUR FELLOW CADILLAC LASALLE MEMBERS THAT WERE ON DISPLAY.

WE ENJOYED THE NORTH TEXAS CADILLAC LASALLE CLUB.  THE FLEETWOOD WON FIRST PLACE RIBBONS, WAS IN MANY CAR SHOWS, PARTICIPATED IN THE TOYS FOR TOTS AT FRANK KENT CADILLAC AS WELL A 4TH OF JULY PARADE IN ARLINGTON.

I SOLD THE CAR THROUGH A NATIONAL AD AND IT WAS SHIPPED TO THE NEW OWNER IN RENO NEVADA.
