1970 Cadillac Coupe de Ville, With Bonus Beater Poll

We've seen a pretty nice Cadillac and a fairly rough one, but we haven't seen a beater Caddy... until today! This '70 Coupe de Ville lacks a grille and rear bumper, but so what? It looks good! And, since we love beaters at El Jalop, that's an excuse for a poll. Vote early, vote often!

1970 was the pinnacle for the big Cadillac V8s, with the 500 engine rated at 400 horsepower and a staggering 550 foot-pounds of torque. 550 ft-lbs is getting into 18-wheeler territory!

This '70, which lives just around the corner from one of the smallest DOTS cars, doesn't seem to move much. Maybe it's someone's personal Hell Project... or maybe it runs only on human blood (which is almost as expensive as 92 octane these days).

All I can say is: this thing had better have Cherry Bombs! OK, now let's have our poll!
