1969. The year I finished ninth grade. Even at that age, I thought this car was once of the most incredible looking vehicles on the road.

I wish car manufacturers hadn't stopped producing plush interiors.
                    1976 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham (60 Special Series)

     Many have called the suspension of these magnificent automobiles "God's own". In 1973, Lincoln challenged Cadillac for ride comfort. In 1975, Cadillac responded. Cadillac continued to use soft coils up front with their traditional long trailing arms, connected to soft coils, over a solid axle at the rear with automatic ride height control through air shocks. So smooth were these cars that it was nearly impossible to really know whether the car was moving on a boulevard type road. On the door armrest, there was virtually zero vibration on the highway at 70 M.P.H.

     Gas mileage was a dismal 7 M.P.G. in the city and 14 on the highway if you had a light foot. At 59.9 cents/gallon though, no one paid any attention to the price of gas back then.

     When it came to plush interiors, no one quite did "plush" like Cadillac. Consumer Guide 1976 Auto wrote that Lincoln and Chrysler simply had no counterpart to the Fleetwood Brougham. They wrote that it was the rear seat that put the 60 Special in a class all by itself.

     Although the new downsized 1977 Cadillac which replaced it had a record breaking sales year, many Cadillac fans realized that the newer Cadillacs lost their ride comfort that would never be returned.

     It was truly a sad day for the Cadillac automobile.

I recently stretched my adventuresome side and wandered into the world of Apple products. I own several PCs and have owned many more in the past, but the 13 inch MacBook Pro that I bought is my first Mac. I bought it specifically to write on and for some reason, have found that it is much easier to write with it than any of my PCs.

I can't explain it, outside the very real possibility that I have created my own mind game to participate in, but I have found that I am also more productive when I sit down to write. The keyboard fits my hands perfectly. The computer seems to draw words out of me on most days.

Now, let's see how long it takes to draw the remaining 3 1/2 books in this series out of me.
