Your picture did not show, so I Googled it.
There was a pink one that made me wish I hadn't.

No thread about Cadillacs is complete without this tune.

Junior Cadillac. A favorite Seattle band in the '70s.
(Anyone else remember them? I bet Lew does.)

I wonder if anyone ever wrote a Phd thesis on the cultural/social/psychological etc meaning of the automobile tail fin? Utterly ridiculous things they were, and on millions, or at least thousands, of cars. A pop testament to air power and the space age?

I have seen very few Cadillacs that I find aesthetically appealing... and those of the last decade or so are the worst offenders. They're freakin' hideous​.

The 59 Eldorado Biarritz had a body built in Italy by Pininfarina.

"Show them you've arrived.​" Exactly the point of the tail fins. Willie Nelson and BB King got it.

The Biarritz. Had one of these on our street (convertible) for several years.... I was always fascinated by the tail-lights' placement and how easy they were to bust with an errant softball... (damhikt)
