Last Remaining United Kingdom Cadillac Dealer Closes
In a move that that will be mourned by…well, I am not sure by who, the lone surviving Cadillac retailer in England has closed its doors. English trade journal Car Dealer Magazine reports that dealership Bauer Millett in Manchester shut down just before Christmas. Citing the high cost of doing business and increased competition, owner Mitch Millet also gave up his Alfa Romeo, Abarth, Jeep and Chrysler franchises.
Millet did not say, but we imagine selling large left-hand drive American vehicles would be quite a challenge in the UK.
Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen has previously announced that Caddy will return to England in 2019, complete with diesel models. No word if the automaker is going to open an office on Savile Row.

I wonder what country that picture was taken, it's odd to see an old Range Rover in a lineup with the presidential caddy and a SS suburban.

When the 75 Seville was imported they chopped & swopped the dash round. Some extensions for the linkages. Don't know how many sold, curiosity shop/chop to the Silver Shadow. They've got Opel/Vauxhall for schmaltz.
Maybe Jaguar should close in the US since their sales are so poor.
