I've known Beny Biarritz since Ruthven. He's a good guy and will be an asset to the club.
Welcome aboard.

Hello and thanks for the warm welcome.  I have an 81 Triple red Biarritz that I purchased last fall from Winnipeg off Kijiji with 140k on it.  It is originally an Alberta car and I took a chance buying it sight unseen, just from the pictures that the owner had sent me,  but so far I have been lucky and very happy with it.  I have already met Ron at Ruthven,  Brad Gedge at the Zurich Bean festival and both Sam and Brad at a late summer cruise night in London that was my car's first long road trip. I had seen Sam's beautiful red 81 and also Brad Gedges blue one at the Fleetwood Cruise this year and was hoping to catch up with either of them, I did achieve that, so it has been a great first year now with my car.  I live in Burlington and am an engineer so I really enjoy learning about the technical details about this model and the V864 engine in particular that is in my car.   I have an original dealer parts manual for all 76-81 Cadillacs now so if anyone needs help with a Part # for their car let me know.  The picture attached is my car after it's first cleanup before Ruthven early this summer.  If you look carefully you can see me driving out in the Ruthven video during the awards ceremony,  so in some ways my car beat me to the club forum.  Dave

 It's good to hear from you Dave!

 I didn't get to meet you at Ruthven, but I did see your car. I'll look forward to a casual chat with you so we can talk about the technical highlights on these cars!

I'm not sure, I was thinking I might install it on my 93 but not sure yet. I'll PM you in a day or two.

Thanks Porter, as for the black wheels I do have the original wire spoke hubcaps but just haven't put them back on after I had taken them off for it's safety inspection.  I noticed that the spoke caps have a number of small dents around the outside edges and they weren't the easiest to get off so they are a tight fit and I only want to take them off and put them back on as few times as possible.   I also wanted to get them cleaned up before they go back on but just haven't had the time.   Kinda like the black look though also so I haven't been in a hurry either to get back to it.
Last summer I picked up a set of used cast aluminium Touring Coupe style wheels from a local guy that are in decent shape, they just need to be refinished, and also just found a set of NOS center caps for them.  When I finally get a set of new tires for it they may go on the car instead.  Might even paint the accent colour red for a custom look but that will also be sometime in the future when I have more time and hopefully more money for it.   Now I am looking for the original style chrome lug nuts to go with them.  Does anyone have a good picture of what they looked like?   Dave
