This four-year project moved along faster than the timeline suggests, and Rick was happy to finally get the car home. Once there, he set the Caddy up to be show ready, giving Bugs of Arizona the green light to add some extra stripping to the undercarriage and the trunk. Additional pinstripping was performed by Julz of Killer Koncepts, who finished up the remaining loose ends on the build, and thus, "Eyes Without a Face" was born.
Thanks to a little patience, Rick's latest creation is finished and sitting pretty, making this '84 Cadillac Coupe DeVille well worth the wait. You can currently catch Rick hitting the Boulevard in this one-of-a-kind '80s beauty that meshes the perfect balance of class and style, and is sure to influence another generation of builders.
