Mayor Rizzo’s 1980 Cadillac Sells In Wildwood

The late and great mayor of Philadelphia, Frank Rizzo’s 1980 black Caddy sold at the Wildwood Classic Car Auction on Saturday, September 25, 2010. Mayor Rizzo was the kind of guy who you either loved or hated. And when he retired after 8 years as mayor of Philadelphia in 1980, he successfully cleaned up the city’s crime problems. Which accounts for why he was either loved or hated. According to his son, Philadelphia Councilman Frank Rizzo, the proceeds of the sale would be used to take care of maintenance of his father’s statute that stands outside the Municipal Services Building long after he is gone.
