Many in the car community often deride Cadillac for the portly land barges it produced in the 70s. Other car companies like Lincoln and Ford also unleashed a fleet of portly wallowers during that time, but in all fairness Cadillac is the brand best remembered for its nautically-sized automotive creations. And Eldorado owner Ken Brehler wouldn’t have it any other way.
Brehler owns a mint condition 1975 Cadillac Eldorado finished in triple white and he positively loves wallowing about in his drop-top land yacht. “This car does not drive. It floats,” he says.
A true convertible guy, Brehler cruises with the top down whenever possible. “It’s either down and everything stays open or it’s all the way up. I don’t want to be one of those guys that ride around with the top down and all the windows up.”
Brehler even recalls how, years ago, his kids would be in the back of the car complaining how cold it was because the top was down. Still, he wouldn’t hear it.
“I don’t care, it’s sunny, and we’re going to ride in the car. It might a little chilly but you just turn the heat on a little. You can do that,” he says in the video with a chuckle.
