1931 Cadillac V16
Producing an unheard of 165 horsepower from its 16 cylinders, the V16 could reach speeds of more than 80 miles per hour. The coachwork was supplied by either Fleetwood or Fisher, with a wooden chassis supporting the well-appointed bodies. Simply staring into the deep red glow of this car transports the autophile back to another era. This V16 has a great human interest twist as well: it was donated to the GM Heritage Center by its original owner, Ms. Augusta Little.

  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.
