Evels Caravan Red Caddie Pickup
Posted by MIke Draper on September 6, 2011, 1:28 am, in reply to "Evel's caravan
Hi Doc, The Red 1974 Cadillac Pickup is owned by John Mock from Eureka Kansas. John Had it restored by a James Humphrey. John first showed it to Evel in Sedalia MO. We have a picture of it inside of Cruzers with the motorcycle in the back of it. John had it restored and drove it to Grove OK to surprise Evel and Krystal doing a personal appearance there. Evel was impressed so much, him and Krystal drove it and lead the parade with all of the other motorcycle riders. Evel drove a black Escalade in and out of the Casino, and was hardly noticed, till he drove the Red Caddie once again. He even had John bring it to Evel Days, had a VRod in the back. Quite the attention getter. John has it in Branson Missouri Car Museum.

On Oct 17th 1938 a baby was born.
That baby would become a man,that man became a LEGEND.
On Nov 30th 2007 the man passed away.
But his Legend lives on in the hearts the minds and the memories of
the millions of people whose lives he touched in the 69 years he graced the earth.
Thanks Evel we will NEVER FORGET YOU.
