1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham
Powered by a 325-horse 365-cubic-inch V8 engine, this Series 70 is particularly special, since it is one of 400 hand-built, limited-edition cars. (Note the rectangular body-side “cove” and five horizontal splits on the rear doors.) This 4-door hardtop cost an astronomical $13,074 in its day — twice the price of any other 1957 Eldorado and more than a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud of the same vintage.

  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.
