Video shoot in Marietta
- Saturday May
18, 2013 @
New member Victor Hill has recorded a
new tune, "I'm So Clean," about CADILLACS! Victor has a contract
with a videographer to shoot a music video on this date. We will meet at
Winch's shop in Marietta -- look for directions on our club web site under
Cadillac Clinics -- at 11:00 AM on May 18th. After the first shooting at
Winchell's, Victor and the crew will sponsor a cookout at a public park
nearby, location to be announced soon. It's part of the shooting, but it's
a chance to get a burger or a hot dog! Victor wants to have a bunch of
Cadillacs of all kinds show up. Owners will stay with their cars, and be
part of the video. There will be some parade footage shot, we believe. So
get your baby cleaned up and shining, and come be part of the action!

The South…a place where the tea is sweet, the people are darlin’, the
moss is Spanish and, come autumn, the cars are plentiful. This fall, the
Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance will once
again settle in the traditionally slow-paced towns of Savannah, GA and Hilton
Head Island, SC. However, for this week, things won’t be so slow. Beginning
the last weekend in October, the Festival kicks off with the Savannah Speed
Classic offering a mix of hot cars and fast rides. After the roar subsides in
storied Savannah, the Festival moves just north across the river to tranquil
Hilton Head Island where the shoe-shaped isle plays host to some of the
country’s finest collector automobiles. Join us this fall in the land of
southern hospitality for a week you will never forget.
The Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours
d’Elegance, one of the nation’s largest as well as fastest-growing
automotive and motorsports enthusiast event weeks, announces a world-class
new venue for the Hilton Head Island portion of the Festival. The Hilton Head
Island events, scheduled for November 2 – 3, 2013, will move to Port
Royal Golf Club, a member of the prestigious Heritage Golf Group
collection of top U.S. courses.

wonder about the history of
The Peach State Cadillac and LaSalle Club?
This Month's Picture Gallery Car's Belong
New Members Rob and
bought the car recently from a lady in S GA, whose husband passed away
recently. The only history I have on the car was that it was restored
around 2005 and then purchased by the couple in GA from RM auctions in Boca
Raton. I would call the car "a driver," as it needs some work
under the hood and under carriage, plus trim, rubber, etc.. It appeared to
be sitting in a non- climate controlled carport /garage, and has some signs
of rust in spots. It needs new carpet, and some work on the headliner, but
runs and drives well. The club could certainly help me get with some
guidance on how to correct some of the issues. I am pretty certain this was
the not the original color (off white), as the top rails are tan. However,
the car looks good and the convertible top is in great shape.
Over the years, I have owned a 56 Coupe Deville and a 59 Sedan. I have
always liked old convertibles, and owned at one time a 52 Chevrolet
convertible, 49 Plymouth convertible and 57 and 56 T-bird. This opportunity
fell in my lap and I seized it, at what I think was a good price. I have
always loved Cadillac's and look forward to joining the club. I may not be
the most active member, but I will try to attend an event at least once a
Send me an email with picture(s) and a
