Below are pictures of my current collector and daily driver automobiles as well as many of the past cars I have owned and/or restored. You can reach me at tedasaurus@gmail.com or text me at the above telephone number. Please scroll down mightily for all the past cars; current cars are shown in chronological order.

1991 5.0 5 Speed with 23,000 original miles.  This one has the 2.73 rear end which I actually prefer.  I’ve had 3.08’s and 3.55’s in these Fox body cars.  3.55 feels the most responsive, but first gear is useless.  3.08 not bad, but the shifts come a little soon in regular driving.  2.73’s seem to match the gears in the transmission the best (and honestly the gains from rear end changes didn’t add up to all that much on these).  Raced these cars extensively in the early 90’s.  Thought all cars were made this durable, that was a learning curve for all of us later on. 

1990 Brougham 5.7 Liter with 9,000 original miles and FE 2 suspension option;  1987 Brougham 7.5 Liter/400 hp V8;  1980 Fleetwood 6.0 Liter and rare sunroof;  1991 Brougham 5.7 Liter Delegance

1939 Fleetwood 60 Special Derham Leather Top Town Car, one of 4 in existence, records of delivery when new in Philadelphia.  A very original Town Car with history dating back to the early 70’s.  

1964 Eldorado with factory original colors, black paint and red leather.  55,000 original miles, known history, last year for tail fins, x frame, and the mid engine placement (yes the ’59 to ’64 Cadillac’s were all very low slung x frames with engines placed low and well back of the center of the front wheels.  These car don’t have the plow or heaviness in front of all the later Cadillacs.  Most people can’t tell this due to their period slow steering, soft springs, and brakes, but they are far superior handling Cads).  The seats below are perforated leather as original.

 1967 Mercedes 250 SE, sunroof, automatic transmission, European model that was delivered new in Nuremburg.  Bare metal repaint in original color, all chrome, wood, and leather redone as well.  Thank you to Mercedes Benz Classic Center for their help and the original build data.  I replaced the American dual headlamps back in favor of the original one piece Euro ones.  This car was optioned with only one headrest on the passenger seat, which I have.  It was also a radio delete car with a power antenna.  I put the power antenna back but couldn’t bring myself to not place a correct radio in the car.  The radio delete cars had a block off plate where the radio would reside.

1969 Mercedes 2800 SE automatic, factory air, Northern California car since new and we are only the second owner.  The picture below is on the famous 17 Mile Drive in Pebble Beach CA.  I did a full cosmetic restoration on this Mercedes as well.  Of note the interior door panels, rear side panels, back seat leather, and front armrests are unrestored.

 1980 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham Delegance with rare sunroof and low miles.  Southern CA car since new with 6.0 Liter big block gasoline V8.  Original paint except for the bumper fillers.  Last of the carbureted big block Caddie’s.  Interior is just to die for.

1987 911 Carrera with 58,000 miles, rare full leather interior, sport seats, rear fog light, factory front chin spoiler and rear whale tail.  Very original and well maintained.  Solid little beast.

 1987 Cadillac Brougham with 7.5 Liter V8 engine.  39,000 miles on the car.  This car has the rare 1988 only aluminum wheels with mandatory wire hubcaps.  I have had fun dressing it with regular period correct Brougham caps and then earlier Fleetwood Delegance color matched caps.  Yes this car has had the original factory installed 5.0 Liter Oldsmobile gas V8 removed by the original owner and in its place resides a 1968/69 Oldsmobile 7.5 Liter with minor tweaks.  Turbo 400 transmission was installed to handle the extra power.  Smooth and quiet but now with the power to make driving easier.  Cruise control, AC/heat, etc., are all working as designed new.

1990 Cadillac Brougham with 9,000 original miles, FE2, and the 5.7 Liter. Paint and fillers are original as is the headliner.  All are in excellent condition.

1991 Brougham Delegance with the 5.7 Liter option.  Dallas Texas car since new, bought at the dealer I worked for (Rodger Meier Cadillac/Infiniti). 36,000 original miles on the car.

                                    1992 Ls400, bought new in Dallas, went to Nashville for several years, and then returned to Dallas.  All of this under the original owners.  54,000 original miles, not low for most cars but very low for a LS.  Nakamichi, Air Suspension,  and Traction Control.

2007 CLK63 with low miles.  520 hp with some Renntech mods.  Dallas car since new.

My very good friend sent me these pictures of all the Fleetwoods I have sold him.  Also in the picture is his gorgeous custom ordered Kenworth.  Looking at that rig makes me want one badly, I eye them enviously on the American interstates now.
