    The first long travel kit I ever had for a UTV, my Rhino, was an HCR kit with Fox shocks that I got by trading my then 65 Ford Galaxy to Serena at SDHQ. I have wanted an old car for years since letting that one go. Something about hot-rodding still has me fixated and you have seen that carry through in many of my UTV builds.

    So here it is, my new-to-me 1955 Cadillac Coupe DeVille. Its an all original car minus an updated paint job, upholstery, and flip kit rear axle. I will be doing a little to this car to customize it but plan to keep it as close to OG as possible. I plan to bag it at some point and possible motor swap it for an updated 70's Cadillac 427 & TH400 trans.

    Any other car junkies?
