Mid Week Match-Up: Find A Party Car

It is the Wednesday, so that means it's time for another edition of Daily Turismo's weekly game of oil pan drip bingo also known as Mid Week Match-Up! Today is New Years Eve and what we need is the perfect vehicle for a party.  Find a vehicle that works for getting to/from the party as well as being a party.   How about a Cadillac Edorado shooting brake?


My choice would be this 1975 Cadillac Eldorado custom wagon "Shooting Brake" offered here on eBay for $6,400 with 5 days to go. (Tip from Michael S.)  The Eldorado was only sold as a 2-door personal luxury coupe from the factory, but someone has turned the party knob up to 11 by adding the rear clip from some other GM wagon (can you ID the donor?).


This oddball looks like the perfect vehicle to welcome the new year with 7 of your friends.  What would you pick?  Comments below.

  4. It's gotta be the The Monkeemobile . But I don't think that's for sale.
    So here's an incredibly expensive 69 Pontiac Custom S wagon

    1. Hey, if you're gonna party, party hard!
      But seriously, rip the wheel chair lift outta this thing and install a stripper pole. Naughty girls LOVE stripper poles.
      Happy New Years DT! And congrats on another great year filled with awesome automobiles!

  5. despite the colour, it looks and smells like a hearse to me! :-) Although I love vans for towing and camping, I would not want this thing in my driveway until I take my last trip out! Just a perspective

  6. So back to the Caddie............theres a few of these floating around on the net and back in the early seventies there was a pale yellow one in New Orleans built on a late sixties caddy. This one has a weird rear profile. That stepped roodline looks as if the complete back section of another.maybe Oldsmobile.... was scabbed onto it. But the window is super weird. Looks in better shape on the surface than most you come across. The paddded roof reminds me of elderly men with their pants hitched up to their armpits.
