Clas­sic Cad­dies

The Tribune (NZ) - - FRONT PAGE -

This 1906 Cadil­lac com­mer­cial owned by Ron­gotea’s Lau­rie Cocker has been driven from North Cape to Bluff, and will turn out for this Satur­day af­ter­noon’s clas­sic Cadil­lac dis­play on The Square af­ter an ap­pear­ance at the Coach House Mu­seum in Feild­ing. Founded in 1902, Cadil­lac has al­ways been as­so­ci­ated with premier au­to­mo­biles. It was the first vol­ume man­u­fac­turer of a fully en­closed car in 1906, the first to in­te­grate elec­tric­ity for ig­ni­tion and light­ing in 1912, and equipped its ve­hi­cles with the first mass-pro­duced au­to­matic trans­mis­sion in 1941. Whanganui car en­thu­si­ast Bob Walker of the NZ Cadil­lac Car Club has helped or­gan­ise 25 cars for the 2015 AGM/ Na­tion­als in the River City. He says most of the clas­sic Cad­dies will drive to Feild­ing for a dis­play at the Coach House Mu­seum be­tween 11.30am and 2.15pm this Satur­day 17, be­fore head­ing to town for a dis­play in The Square from 2.30pm to 3.15pm. Bob is keen to met with any Cadil­lac car own­ers not cur­rently mem­bers of the New Zealand Cadil­lac Car Club, and can be con­tacted on 027 201 2582 .
