Head to Head

 

About “Madeira”

I've always liked big cars. They are more comfortable than smaller ones and today they just aren't as common. Personally, I like coupes better than sedans, so when this '84 Caprice coupe came along - CHEAP! - last summer when gas was over $4.00 around here, I couldn't pass it up. It looks and rides like new!

About “Catalina”

Bought this car about 4 years ago from an older gentlemen in Gresham area of Portland and have been restoring it slowly. I like that I can drive it while I work on it.
