Default My Late Grandfather'* 2002 SLS

This car was his pride and joy in life. He told me a few months before he bought it that he had wanted a Cadillac since the first time he saw one in 1953. He owned and babied this SLS for 4 years before his passing last March. My grandmother is going to keep the car as a grocery getter for the foreseeable future. A little while back i took it out for a joy ride to wash it and what not, and OH MAN does she still go like stink. It has every option known to mankind, leather seats, sunroof, onstar, 32 valve Northstar V8, Real wood grain dash, shifter and steering wheel. He even went out and bought rubber floor mats with the "Seville" name plate on them, and then gave me the stock mats for my Bonnie to save my SSE mats. The Tattoo at the bottom is a picture of him i had done a day before his funeral. The wings are from the mid 70'* cadillac nose emblem. It is on my left forearm, so that he can drive every car that i will drive, including his beloved Cadillac.
