The Eldorette: a $200,000 Eye-Searing Testament to Hideous Crap

Article contributed by John Coyle / Corvette Forum

First, the good news: there’s apparently only one of these monstrosities. The bad news is everything else. The Eldorette is a combination of C3 Corvette and Cadillac Eldorado, and perfectly illustrates that some things – handguns and tequila, for example – just shouldn’t be put together. The seller claims over $200K was dumped into the construction, which is as crazy as it is sad.

The Vette’s chassis and engine were retained, but every other inch of the car has been molested with fiberglass, vinyl, and in the case of the interior, approximately six acres of red velour. The best use I can see for this car is as some kind of punishment vehicle for people convicted of drunk driving or similar vehicular crimes. As part of their restitution, they’d have to spend six months driving this piece of crap, and hopefully come to associate being behind the wheel with such terrible shame they’d spend the rest of their days riding the bus.
