For Lloyd and Larry

This weekend my two brothers-in-law were around. Some years ago, Lloyd, the one time West Coast bro-in-law, gave his wife Joy, a Cadillac. Not just any Cadillac, he gave her a 1984 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible - white with red leather interior. It was relatively low mileage, but at some point the engine failed. It sat for a few years gathering dust in the garage before eventually Lloyd replaced the engine with a brand new engine. Joy's health was failing and the car wasn't driven much. Last year Joy passed away. Lloyd is an extremely generous man. A couple of months ago he gave - gave, not sold, the car to his favorite bro-in-law .... Larry.  ;-)  This isn't the actual car, but it's a dead ringer to it. I look forward to seeing the three remaining Hanson sisters cruising around Fountain Lake in the Biarritz, their tops down.

Nothing quite like the sight of topless women in a convertible.
