The Cadillac BIG Meet is Europes biggest Cadillac Meeting. Its held every second year and it draws visitors from all over the world into the old Austrian city of "Kremsmünster".
The theme this year was the "1967 - 1970 Eldorados" which we featured in a special exhibition at the venue.
Weather forecast for the weekend was catastrophic after one of the driest summers we ever had. This caused some cancellations of participants and we were pretty nervous that many more would cancel their attendance. On friday evening quite a few super nice cars had already arrived at the hotel.

We then continued our tour to Linz where the cars were displayed underneath an art museum where the cars drew a lot of attention.

On the way back to Kremsmünster it started to rain heavily and it did not stop until sunday noon.
The Meeting on Sunday
Due to the bad weather we had far less Cadillacs in attendance this year. Lot of regular visitors stayed home as well.
The special exhibition - 1967-1970 Eldorado Elvis Presleys 1972 Station Wagon.
The first time we had an ambulance at the show. Loved it very much! Armin won Public Favorite and the 1951-1960 category with his 1953 Eldorado which he had been restoring to perfection during the last 12 years.
