Custom 1960 Cadillac Convertible is sure to start a debate

Whether you think classic cars should all remain stock as the day they rolled off the assembly line or you love all things custom, this custom 1960 Cadillac convertible is almost guaranteed to leave everyone who sees it with something to say.

Starting with the body of a clean 1960 Coupe the builder of this long black Cadillac cut the car "into 1000 pieces" and altered the body in a subtle but significant manner. By the time the top was chopped, metal had been added to fenders, a new hood was fabricated and the fins were lengthened and raised the bill for the metal work alone was $30,000.

As you can see from the pictures, the modifications only got more extreme from there. The frame was dropped and airbags were added so it can sit on the ground at shows and return to cruising height. Massive 22 inch wheels, 454 V8/Turbo 400 transmission and a custom interior complete with bright red leather and ostrich interior are just a few of the more obvious changes to this custom Caddy from the long list of modifications.

Currently this Cadillac is listed on Ebay and with a little more than a day left the bidding has reached $59,100. We aren't sure what the reserve is on this long and low cruiser but the seller estimates it would cost at least $100,000 to duplicate—a claim we have a hard time doubting.

Love it or hate it, the result is visually stunning to say the least—good enough to take the title of "BEST GM VEHICLE OF SEMA awarded by GENERAL MOTORS". We want to know what you guys think—Is this Cadillac a well executed custom cruiser or a big wheeled waste of a perfectly restorable example of vintage luxury?
