Cadillac Connect is the brainchild of Cadillac Mike Lopez, a Cadillac purist and enthusiast. It’s a business that started as a passion project, and nowadays, he’s become the go-to guy for Cadillac parts. As part of an annual shindig, Mike Lopez has been throwing Cadillac Fest annually, and each year the cars get better, the crowds get bigger, and it’s a testament to not only his passion but his loyal following of patrons and friends. 

Since two of us got assigned to cover the event, this is the second part of our Cadillac Fest coverage, and we shot some flicks of some of the most legendary streetcars that could easily double as full-blown show cars. 

From Joe Ray’s legendary Helldorado to OG Hyro’s Le Cab and his infamous gold and green hopper, there was a strong showing of support and some incredible builds that brought out plenty of smiles and cameras from onlookers. The show of support was so strong that many cancelled previously made plans while Hyro still pulled up with the Individuals squad despite dealing with broken ribs from a fall the that happened days earlier – then again, when you’ve built a company based on your reputation and goodwill, then this is the the type of loyalty you can expect.
