A monster Caddy.

THREE QUESTIONS:

Why?

Is this street legal in Minnesota, or anywhere?

How do you get in and out of this Cadillac?

    3 answers: #1 Because. #2 Yes, although each state has different laws regarding this type of vehicle. The “bumper” height/existence is the key element and they do exist! #3 There are “side steps”/pipes that assist the less agile(?). LOL! Great post!!!!!!!!

  2. Why? Oh why? That’s an interesting ride to the ball.

  3. Beth Ann Says:

    I giggled at your first question—and Doreen’s answer is spot on. Just because it could be done! Great shot and I would have been asking for a ride quite possibly. 🙂

    There is no accounting for taste. The owner must really be attached to that body-style of Cadillac. You can run into so many bizarre things – love it!

  5. There are rails on the side to get in. I do not know why?!? – has me a bit baffled as to why. I love that you called it a Monster Caddy because that was my 1st thought too – ha 🙂 Great Capture and thanks for making me stop and ponder this morning.

    There is no way that would be legal in Oz. Whoever owns it must have very long legs xx

    Why?

    For the same reason Claes Oldenburg balanced a cherry on a spoon in the Walker Sculpture Garden. It is art. It is outrageous. It is an inspiration to anyone with a welding torch.
