Club owner Dave Sheets wanted to make people feel as if they had left Lansing and stepped right into Las Vegas. He wanted a heavy emphasis on Cadillacs. When it comes to custom car work, especially old Cadillacs, you have to turn to Wonder Years. Dave called Wonder Years and told Larry Zimmer what he was looking for. A few months later, the pieces were ready and they were transported to the club. There was still plenty of work to do to get ready for the Grand Opening. Below you will get a peek into the hottest club in Lansing, the Cadillac Club.
For the front of the building, Larry cut off the front end of a 59 Caddy.
The stage is highlighted with the sides of a 55 Caddy, complete with working lights and spinning wheels.
The Men's and Lady's restrooms are marked by the trunk portion of 54 and 55 Caddys.
The DJ booth was made from the nose of a 59 Caddy. Larry moved the windshield and frame forward so that it would give a more complete look.
With some of the left over parts, Larry made this one of a kind piece that incorporates the taillights, steering wheel, hood ornament, and side badges from 50's era Cadillacs.
This is the happy owner, Dave Sheets. His grand opening was a complete success, and he is getting some great reviews on his $1.7 million dream come true.
