Dadillac - 1990 Cadillac Brougham D'Elegance

Dadillac - 1990 Cadillac Brougham D'Elegance

Anyone known as "Big Daddy" had better have a ride worthy of that monicker. What would be the appropriate vehicle for an individual with such a name? A Hummer? Hmm! Maybe a monster-size pickup or SUV? Well, this Big Daddy is a lowrider with Legends C.C. out of Moreno Valley, California. Given that information, there could only be one ride for Big Daddy... a Cadillac. Perfect!

Big Daddy's "Dadillac" is an Ice Blue '90 Cadillac Brougham D'Elegance that was completely reworked from top to bottom, front to back. The price tag for the luxury lowrider? Well, that's not so easy to figure. "I'd been looking for a Cadillac, but had not found the right one," Big Daddy explains. "My wife had a Ford Explorer and on Father's Day, she traded it for this Caddy. So I got the Caddy for Father's Day, but the surprise was that I had to buy my wife a new car!"

Construction time is also a bit of a mystery. You see, Big Daddy's built up the Cadillac twice. He estimates that the car was rebuilt twice in about three years. Many top shops and individuals worked on the project at one time or another, and Big Daddy thanks everyone involved, as well as God, his fellow Legends C.C. members, and especially his wife for showing such patience and giving him the Cadillac in the first place.

Does Big Daddy have any future plans for Dadillac? "Wait and see," he says. "There's a surprise coming!" Whoa, Big Daddy, take it easy. You've gotta leave a little something for the competition.
