The Decline and Fall of Western Civilization, Part 4,312

Cadillac Seville

Drive By Shootings: Uncle Bob, What THE Hell Were You Thinking?

What the hell was wrong with us in the late 70s?

And this – the Cadillac Seville v. 2.0 (introduced for Model Year 1980)

  • fake rims
  • Fake engines – up to 145 hp from your choice of innocuous corporate engines, or the famed fake diesel (converted from a gas 350) or V8/6/4
  • fake leather inside (eventually leading to the term “leather seating surfaces,” instead of “leather seats”)
  • Fake convertible roof (thank the 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V for making this seem OK)
  • and finally – Fake-ass fake Daimler fake trunk.

When I came to, the general back-alley ambiance of the suite was so rotten, so incredibly foul. How long had I been lying there? All these signs of violence. What had happened? There was evidence in this room of excessive consumption of almost every type of drug known to civilized man since 1544 AD. What kind of addict would need all these coconut husks and crushed honeydew rinds? Would the presence of junkies account for all these uneaten french fries? These puddles of glazed ketchup on the bureau? Maybe so. But then why all this booze? And these crude pornographic photos smeared with mustard that had dried to a hard yellow crust? These were not the hoofprints of your average God-fearing junkie. It was too savage. Too aggressive.
