Capitol Cadillac Car Show to feature ’53 Cadillac LeMans


In honor of the late Henry Ruby, the Cadillac & LaSalle Club Potomac Region car show coordinator, and the 60th Anniversary of the 1953 Eldorado, the theme for this year’s Annual Fall Car Show at Capitol Cadillac will be Colossal Convertibles, celebrating the long and storied history of Cadillac and LaSalle open cars.

Specifically, Cadillac and LaSalle roadsters, phaetons, open cars and convertibles from all model years will be the honored cars at the show to be held on Sunday, Oct. 27, at Capitol Cadillac in Greenbelt, MD.

As a tribute to Henry, his 1958 Eldorado Biarritz will be on display (pictured top), as well as the factory-built “super-charged” 1953 Eldorado (pictured below), one of the only two 1953 Cadillac LeMans concept cars remaining (pictured bottom) and a 1953 Cadillac custom convertible from the Scott Milestone collection.


Every Cadillac and LaSalle convertible owner is encouraged to attend this very special show. To celebrate the event, each registered owner will receive a commemorative dash plaque illustration. In addition, the Colossal Convertibles owners who pre-register will receive a framed certificate of appreciation for participating. It is time for the convertible owners to take their place alongside the V-12 / V-16 Cadillacs, Eldorados, LaSalles, Fleetwoods, Capitol Cadillac Alumni Cars, DeVilles and Professional car owners who have been featured at the Potomac Region’s past seven theme-related fall car shows.

The judging will be done by the owners of the vehicles registered. The registered owners will be able to judge cars in all classes, including their own, and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards will be given to inning vehicles in each class, including five special classes for the convertibles.

Capitol Cadillac is an easy five minute drive from the Holiday Inn Greenbelt where rooms will be reserved for Friday thru Sunday at the special CLC Potomac Region rate $94/night (301-982-7000 – mention “Cadillac & LaSalle Club” when making reservation).
