eldorado dog passenger seat

Last weekend I was walking on a village side street in the Hamptons when I saw this Fabulous Eldorado Cadillac convertible. A dog was sitting in the front passenger seat. I wanted to stop and admire this fire-red, fuel-guzzling classic car but my kids had whizzed on ahead on their scooters.

I turned around to take another picture and watched a woman place….

eldorado-and-surf-board…a surf board in the back seat.

It’s a 1976 model which at the time GM marketed as the “last American convertible” as all other US convertibles had been discontinued that year. Just think everyone then would have been wearing flare trousers too.

All rather fabulous – the ‘last convertible,’ a fiersome dog in the passenger seat, a surf board in the back seat, and a fiery red Cadillac Eldorado 1976 convertible.

Another fabulous sight in the Hamptons is this mermaid.

  1. What a fabulous car can just imagine it back in the 70s……..the cool hipsters getting in and going for a ride. How wonderful to turn round and capture the surf board 🙂 Great photos!

  2. Love this Kriss! What a great car and how brilliant to see the surf board appear in the back. Just fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing with #alphabetphoto

  3. Definitely fabulous. Far more fabulous vehicle than the one I used to balance my board on. Glad you looked back. #AlphabetPhoto

  4. Now that is certainly fabulous, not to mention glamorous! Was the woman a Marilyn Monroe look alike? Somehow I associate those cars with beautiful-blonde and sophisticated women like her. Of course it could also be her male-counterpart, whoever that could be 😉 #alphabetphoto.

  5. That’s definitely fabulous. And I guess that’s one way to transport your surf board! 🙂
