the Vr6 Cadillac and notice that uncertainty seems to reign on the question whether or not other species of the breed still exist in Europe. I can answer this question in the affirmative as I know of the existence of two V16 Cadillacs in Sweden. One is a 1930 limousine in wonderful condition which was recently dis

covered stored since many years in a remote hamlet in Lapland, near the Polar Circle. It is now owned by an enthusiast friend of mine, Mr. Sten Bostrom of Skolgatan 57, Umea (where the Monte Carlo Rally used to start pre-war). It is to be completely restored. The other Vr6 Cadillac still belongs to its original owner, Mr. Sophus Paterson of Malmo, a publisher. This car is fitted with a

very elaborate landaulet-dc-ville body by the Swedish coachbuilder Nordberg & Son of Stockholm and reputedly cost in the region of £3,000 when new in 1931. It is still in beautiful original condition and is used each summer by its aged but satisfied owner for short tours. Spare parts for these cars are of course still available from the U.S., particularly through the Cadillac-La Salle Club, 730 Symes,

Royal Oak, Michigan, att. Mr. Norman Uhlir. I am certain that Mr. Rolfe will be able to find the missing parts for his car, radiator cap, distributor head, etc.’ through this Club as I knovv that they have been most helpful to Mr. Bostrom, finding for him a missing rear lamp and sundry other spares.
