The dealership was established in Washington, DC in 1934 by Floyd Akers, the grandfather of Daniel Jobe, its current President and 2009 CLC Cadillac Herald Award recipient. In 1979, the dealership moved to its present facility in Greenbelt, Maryland and has been hosting CLC Potomac Region car shows since 1992.
To commemorate the anniversary, the theme selected for this year’s fall Capitol Cadillac / CLC Potomac Region car show is “Celebrating Capitol Cadillac’s 75th Anniversary”. As part of the celebration, the showroom on Sunday Oct. 25 will be filled with Cadillacs / LaSalles from 1934 – 1979 that were originally sold by Capitol Cadillac. All Cadillacs and LaSalles will be welcome at the show, but the ones sold new by Capitol Cadillac in 1979 or before will be the specially-featured cars.
The Region is inviting known owners of Cadillacs / LaSalles that were sold new by Capitol Cadillac in 1979 or before. To celebrate the event, a commemorative program will highlight the history of Capitol Cadillac, and will include a description of each one of the featured cars preregistered for the show. Each car registered for the show will receive one of these programs, and the owners of the featured cars will receive a framed certificate of appreciation for participating.
For further information about the car show, contact Diane & Henry Ruby, Car Show Coordinators, at 301-297-4459, 301-894-8026 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
