Ken Moss 5th June 1923 - 16th December 1997

Who was Ken Moss and why do we honour him?

The late Ken Moss was a Cadillac owner and driver for 46 years after buying his first Cadillac in 1951. This claim alone may be unique in Australia. Ken had restored two early Cadillacs (1912 and 1927) and was well advanced on a third (1903) before there were any one-make car clubs in Australia to support such an interest.

Cadillac LaSalle Club of Australia Tracing Your Cadillac's History

Many of us would like to know more about the history of our car. Sometimes we have little to go on, maybe just a few snippets of information from the previous owner. Sometimes it could even be a claim that once it belonged to Elvis or some other celebrity! In this case it may be possible to find a photo of the celebrity with the car in an old newspaper or magazine.

Going Up In a Puff of Smoke.....
words of advice from the ACT Fire Commissioner, Jim Dance

by Peter Ratcliff

Most of the Cadillacs on this website, and indeed, throughout Australia are right hand drive.

Right hand drive has an interesting history, and few countries have clung to it as keenly as has Australia. There are many theories about the origins of right hand drive. RHD dates back to well before motor cars, in fact to horse-drawn days. It appears that riders have always mounted horses from the left, so that mounting platforms were on the left of the track. In crowded areas, it made sense to stay on the left of the road once you had started there. That may or may not be the correct explanation, but it does not explain why the US decided to abandon RHD at the end of the horse age.

Here is a collection of "good restorer's" through to complete basket cases - the sad thing is I think we would like to save them all. I found them on photo sites on the web and I think all are in the US.
