Johan 31 Cadillac V16 Roadster

Recommended Posts

Built this a long time back but just love these cars!

Still want to build the other 2 if I can find them reasonably priced!

All of the above and more!  As stated in another thread, those Johan Caddy's are some of the finest kits ever molded, you've done this one justice.

Beautifully done. I've been sitting on this kit for some time trying to figure out how to hot rod it but after seeing your build I'm having second thoughts. Maybe stock is the only way to go. Very very nice.

Johnny,

Seeing what you have done with the kit of the roadster, it is beautiful.  I have this bagged kit sitting in my stash which I will never use.  It is yours if you send me a PM with your mailing address and I will get it in the mail to you tomorrow.  It will be my pleasure.

Gary

Stunning, lovely colour scheme too.  What is the main colour? Don't think I  have ever seen one of these built before.

Just good old Testors Gray Enamel that sat and cured for about 8 years before I got around to building the kit!:lol:

Did you use a Molotow pen on the wheels?

Lee, just old Testors chrome silver paint over gray primer.

I remember being up almost all one night cleaning up the flash on those wheels before finally painting them!

Gorgeous old Caddy. There is something about the phrase "V-16 roadster" that gets the heart pumping.

When I was driving OTR I had a three day layover in Salk Lake City so went to a car show there to kill some time.

That was where I saw one of these in person for the first (and last) time. Things were winding down for the evening and I stopped and talked to the owner who out of the blue said to hop in and lets take her for a spin! I was elated to say the least!

Here was this guy who knew me from Adam and asks me to take a ride in a to me priceless car! A few miles out he stopped to run in and get a pack of smokes and when we come out he offers to let me take it for a spin!

I declined. As much as I would have loved to have driven that car I did not want to take the chance that something would happen with me behind the wheel!:lol:

They are beautiful designed cars and just the feel of the engine in front of you is like a dream and I still can only imagine what the feel of the throttle would have been like under my foot!

By the way, he didn't baby that car either! He drove it like I believe the creator intended him to!B)
