1955 Cadillac Coupe DeVille
Selling at a base price of $4,305 in 1955, the DeVille houses a 331-cubic-inch V8 engine, a wraparound panoramic windshield, chrome-plated aluminum “saber spoke” wheels and dual rear exhaust that exits through ports in the rear bumper.

  1. Great rendition — especially of the Cadillacs. When will we ever see another Cadillac to rival those shown here? We need a new icon without worrying about fuel efficiency and “organic” greenness.

  2. A bright red Cadillac convertible was my ideal car when I was a kid and it still is. They don’t make such gorgeous cars any longer.
