1923 Cadillac Other
Due to ill health, offered for sale is a1923 Cadillac Victoria. When WWII broke out, the war drives were melting down all the classic cars for the war effort. A man from Detroit, named Barney Pollard, loved classic cars so much that he tried to save as many as he could. His family was in the road construction business and could afford to sell for scrap a lot of their older equipment. He made a deal with the local salvage yards to trade them pound for pound equipment for old cars. He then took telephone poles and buried them in his mas...sive warehouse facility and strung cables from the top of them, deadheading the ends for weight. He put the tops of the cars down, removed the tires and then hung them from the wires like clothes in your closet. He could get 5 cars in the footprint of 1 car sitting on it's wheels. He saved hundreds of classic cars, both pre WWI and WWII. The car I have hung on a cable for 43 years, has only 17,000 original miles, and has a body made out of aluminum. This car would have been made into an airplane if not for Barney Pollard. This car is perfect in every way, and even the compressor off the transmission, to air up the tires, still works. This is a car that should never be restored. If interested, call Richard Blomquist (608) 780-8229. See more at WhiteGloveCollection.com.
