    Yawn! Looks like Cadillac styling is bankrupt. What other excuse would there be for them copying Chrysler's show cars of a few years back? My original reaction was it was a ripoff of Chrysler's Imperial Parade Phaetons of the 1950's, but not as well done. I am underwhelmed, to say the least.

    DO WANT!!!!!!!!

    I can see shades of the 1967 Eldorado in there, especially that rear tail treatment. I'd love to see Cadillac build a large 4 seat convertible that will comfortably seat 6' tall men in the back seat. And hold 4 sets of golf clubs. Its something nobody else is selling, IMO convertibles don't have to be some sort of sporty, impractical 2 seater, or have a vestigial back seat that your 8 year old child would find tight.

    THIS. They all have their place in the car world, but my personal taste is along these lines. It would be nice if it was available to those who want it. The closest you can get to decent rear room in a 'modern' convertible is a late '90s early '00s Sebring convertible. What I would kill to see on the road nowadays is a modern interpretation of this:

    I wouldn't even trade my old 98 Deville for it. And whats up with all these new cars using the Dodge truck grills? Looks like the wheels are way too tall, almost to the top of the fenders. And to believe they would use real wood interior is a joke, maybe wood like decal.

    Re: Cadillac Ciel Concept...

    If they can build this off the new Omega platform I think it could be a viable product. As much as I don't care for the fawning over the old days of Fleetwoods, a big, comfy cruiser such as this could set a niche other companies would struggle to match. Much like the Escalade, if you will...

    Re: Cadillac Ciel Concept...

    Ok, seen a bit more of it, when i saw this thread it was on my phone so the pictures were too small, seeing the pics on a PC in bigger resolution, ive come to say, i don't like this, its ugly imo. Cadillac could've done better.

    That's what I was getting at, a modern version of the old 50's/60's ragtop.
