Featured Ride: Leahi Castro’s 1960 Cadillac Coupe DeVille
Leahi Castro of Old Image Car Club has always liked American cars from the 1950s and 1960s. Leahi Castro has owned a variety of vehicles from those decades including a 1950 Ford F-1, a 1959 Chevrolet Biscayne, a 1964 Chevrolet Nova Station Wagon, a 1969 Lincoln Continental, as well as this beauty found within this particular feature.
