Our Cars: Les Steinberg’s 1959 Cadillac Coupe DeVille

For those of you who don’t know him, Les Steinberg is one of our members who in my opinion is “livin’ the dream”, he works for a large private car collection, painstakingly restoring old iron on a seemingly budget-unlimited basis.  In his spare time he located and brought to new condition a low mileage ’59 Cadillac Coupe DeVille for himself.  While the restoration performed wasn’t an every nut and bolt top to bottom one, Les documented the work he did do on this beautiful car and indubitably shows that one can achieve museum-quality results with lots of talent, patience and an eye for detail all while working out of an ordinary home garage. He subsequently sold the car, and almost immediately was pining away for this one that he had let get away, and began the search for another.  While he hasn’t found his next subject yet, one thing’s for sure, any car subjected to a “Lesteration” is indeed a lucky one!
