In Bruce Springsteen's song Cadillac Ranch, he sings, "Well, Buddy when I die, throw my body in the back, and drive me to the junkyard in my Cadillac." I could well imagine that final destination as C.R. Auto in Hay Lakes, a Cadillac repository 60 kilometres southeast of Edmonton.

With 335 salvage Cadillacs dated 1947 to 1979, owner Andrew Berfelo declares it "Canada's largest Cadillac retirement centre." Within that collection of Cadillac carcasses lies a treasure trove of nearly impossible to find vintage Cadillac parts.

Nobody lived the Cadillac dream more than Berfelo's brother Randy. In the early 1980s, Randy was restoring a 1962 Cadillac convertible and brought home two more '62s for spare parts. A few months later, he had 10 Cadillacs of various model years, and the total kept rising as his Cadillac cornucopia grew larger.

As Andrew puts it, "Randy was a Cadillac fanatic."
