1959 Cadillac Convertible from the Father's Day Catalog Cover 2020

1959 Cadillac Convertible from the Father's Day Catalog Cover 2020

We always look forward to our annual Father's Day catalog photo shoot. It's an opportunity to visit with a local customer and his family, plus we usually get to see some cool cars and unique garages. This year we returned to the garage of local customer, Steve Rostam.

If you have been a longtime customer, you might recognize some cars or the garage from a past catalog. We shot one of Steve's classic Buick convertibles for a catalog feature in 2013. A few projects, home remodels, and children later, we thought it was a good time to return to his home in Southern California.

The feature car on the catalog is Steve's 1959 Cadillac convertible. The Cadillac had a frame off restoration back in 2009, but is still collect awards and recognition today. The vehicle was restored to its original condition and style. Check out our photo gallery for additional photos of this fine restoration. Steve maintains and works on most of his projects in his home garage. Steve and his family are active in the Buick community and are part of a club in Los Angeles that host an annual car show in the San Fernando Valley. We were glad that is his children, Lily and John, could help us out with this year's photo shoot.

Want some more information on this Cadillac? Check out our interview with Steve during the photo shoot.

Look in your mail box or inbox this week, as the 2020 California Car Cover Father's Day catalog will be arriving in homes this weekend. Thank you again, to Steve, Aline, Lily and John for making another memorable catalog cover shoot for us.
