    i can barely see a resemblance. i mean, i dont think they ould sue over something like that and i seriously doubt Cadillac would take styling cues from Chrylser. id hate to think that anyway.

    Where do you think Chrysler got the idea for the vertical tail lamps?
    (or just about everything else on the Caddy-wannabe Fifth Avenue?)
    You're mixing up who copied whom. Cadillac is working with the design elements it has always had.




    ...and Chrysler with it's Bentley-esque 300C shouldn't be crying about anyone's similarities. Or how about that Chrysler Firepower concept? Anyone notice it's Aston Martin shape and proportions?

    ok so you wanna play again ...

    Number one , that car (eldo) doesnt have the plates mounted into the bumper

    Number two , the chrome strip that has the script of the manuafture is common on baoth the 93 5th avenue and the 06 DTS

    Number three the reverse lamps are incorareated into the lower end of the taillamp assembly which is integrated into the chrome strip in the bottom of the trunk lid

    Number four , the trunk lid meets the bumper , not some patch panel halfway down the rear of the car....

    Number 5 there are "bumperettes" that surround the plate that is mounted inside the bumper not boath bumper and patch panel

    I could go on but you get the drift i hope

    Go find a picture that pre dates the 93 Chrysler on a Cadillac that has these elements and ill back down ...Till then the 93 5th avenue bares a incredible resembleence to the new DTS , one that was probably not intentional but nonetheless is hard not to agree with ....that is unless your the type that is blinded by brand loyalty

    Look at the Lincoln taillights, and the new 300C taillights, they all steal off of Caddies.

    Sure. But let me pull up pics from the same angle for reference...

    I apologize. You're right.
    I know I'm definately going to mistake this:



    with this:



    Look! They both have 4 wheels too!
    And 4 doors!
    And is that emblem mounted in the center of the trunk lid? It is!
    Caddy is in soooooo much trouble.
