Cadillac Parked On Brooklyn Street For 25 Years Finally Towed

1971 Cadillac towed from Brooklyn© Motor1.com A legend is gone.

Seasons change but the old, rusty Cadillac parked on Brooklyn Street remains the same. According to estimates by a longtime neighborhood resident, it’s been there since 1994. Twenty-five years later, the 1971 Caddy made its final run being towed away by the New York Police Department after a Windsor Park resident complained.

The New York Daily News reports the vehicle was a local landmark. It was owned by an elderly man reportedly suffering from mental illness, who was unable to take care of it, according to local residents. Interestingly, the 1970s sedan had a current New York inspection sticker. After a recent complaint however, the car was ticketed by a street cleaner and, shortly after, towed to the NYPD’s Erie Basin Auto Pound.

For some reason I like this story. I feel sad for the Caddy.

Thanks for posting @corbe

But now I have Bruce’s song “Cadillac Ranch” spinning in my head.

Vroom!

"Cadillac Ranch" is a real place,where the rancer "planted" just Caddillacs face down into the ground along a highway that runs through his land. Most are,or at least were,from the 60's and early 70's,but some were from the 50's.

I’ve seen pictures of that! It sort of like Stonehenge for cars. @sneakypete
