Your Bio

Welcome to the website for the Western Reserve Region of the Cadillac LaSalle Club, which is based in northeast Ohio.

It is with great sadness we that share the new of Bob Diederich's passing. Bob was such a vital part of the Western Reserve Region. He served as our Director for a few years, and was always ready to help out where needed. He will be sorely missed. Please keep Juli and the rest of the Diederich family in your thoughts and prayers.

Our annual Deckfast has now become the “Garage Fest” and will be hosted by the Ciganek’s in Larry’s & Kathy’s new car garage built for Larry’s restoration projects. It will be held on:
Saturday July 11, 10:00 A.M.
7160 Conelly Blvd, Walton Hills
Phone: 440-786-1605
RSVP by July 6
Please bring a dish to pass and your lawn chairs. This should be a great time!!!!

Anyone looking for a new addition to their Cadillac "collection?" Chuck Johnson bought a 1986 Seville d'Elegance from Gump Cadillac in Toledo when it was almost new. It was Mrs. Gump's personal car, and before that, it was a featured car at the Detroit Auto Show. It's in a subtle two-tone grey-green, with matching leather interior. It has 50K miles, and all options except moon roof. WRR member Bob Porter thinks, in spite of the luxury equipment, that it's worth about $4,500. Bob thinks Chuck will entertain offers, as the car is seldom used. Chuck lives in Lambertville MI, which is just over the Toledo line, but the car is in a carriage house in Toledo. His phone number in Michigan is 734-856-3094. Give him a call if you think you might be interested!
