Occasionally good fortune unexpectedly comes knocking on your door. Of course you have to be prepared to open the door.
Such was a scenario that unfolded before Joe Rivenbark at his DunRite Transmission repair facility in Stafford, Va.
A few years ago a customer drove up to his shop in a sparkling blue 1966 Cadillac Calais four-door hardtop sedan.
He was the second owner of the car and was there to get a few minor mechanical issues addressed. As Rivenbark inspected the Cadillac he was so impressed by the overall condition of the car that he inquired if it was for sale.
