2002 Cadillac El Dorado ETC

Still my daily driver after 10 years. My dad happened upon it sitting on the Nissan lot he passed on his way home and knew I had been looking to upgrade my car (I had just moved to a new firm and I was driving a rather nondescript ‘98 Acura RL at the time). He called me from his car and told me he’d set up a test drive for the next afternoon. The next afternoon the salesman he’d talked the ear off of let us take it out alone. Needless to say I bought it that day and Dad was pretty proud to see my Cadillac parked next to his Lincoln when I went by to visit my folks. Dad passed away 3 years later but fortunately he and I got the chance to take several long road trips in the Caddy. It still drives great and even though it’s long in the tooth I can’t bring myself to sell it or trade it in because of the memories I have of all the miles we put in together in it, not just as father and son but as good friends. Eventually I’ll have to get a new car but for now I’m still happy to drive it everyday.
