1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible
Like a parade float with two doors, this bright red Biarritz Convertible embodies everything about classic Cadillacs: Big tailfins, big chrome, big engine, big everything. It’s said that these Cadillacs were created in retaliation for the large fins that began appearing on Chrysler products in 1957, as well as drawing influence from the dawning of the rocket age.

  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.
