Decorah museum returning Norwegian king's Cadillac limo

Posted: Updated:
 The King of Norway's Cadillac is taking the road home, in a way. King Olav's 1951 Cadillac limousine was given to the Vesterheim Museum in Decorah in 1994. The King bought it after World War II, to symbolize Norway's road to recovery.

It quickly became his favorite car, and he later donated it the International Disabilities Foundation to be used for fund raising.

Now, the Vesterheim is returning the car to the American Car Club of Norway (AMCAR). The vehicle will eventually be returned to Norway proper.

“AMCAR's desire and ability to fully restore the King's Cadillac was timely and Vesterheim is happy to play a role in getting the car to its new museum home in Norway,” Steve Johnson, Vesterheim's Executive Director, said.
