This is probably one of the greatest things I’ve seen in quite some time. As if old Cadillacs weren’t cool enough, this Kentucky-residing man went ahead and replaced the door handles on his 1967 Cadillac Deville convertible with a replica Colt .45 Peacemaker handgun. Talk about an intimidating look! For a second, I did actually think this gun was still able to fire, but that might be a bit of a safety hazard.
Instead, the gun takes on new functionality as shown in the video above. The revolving cylinder on the gun has been repurposed to act as the button to open the actual door. Rather than spin, you now just need to push it in, and it will pop the door open. I can’t blame this guy for filming the video, because if this were mine, I’d probably also be in the garage just opening and closing this door for no good reason other than to try this thing out.
Can you imagine the amount of strange looks this guy gets while driving this car around? Let alone if a cop were to pull you over. Some people probably absolutely love it, while others just have a fearful and confused look plastered on their faces. I certainly wouldn’t get into any road rage incidents with this guy!
You have to love the creativity of some people. I can’t think of anything more suitable for an old Cadillac than this. If you have a passion for cars while also having a love for guns, why not combine the two into one? While some people take factory cars and restore them to original spec, others like to customize, and this couldn’t be a better example of that. Hats off to this man for creating something unique and totally badass.
