Hey.. Does anyone remember that old Cadillac commercial where - I think it was an Allante - came up from behind a Mercedes (MB was dressed in yellow with black checkers - it was a taxi cab) went around and in front of it?

Or am I the only one who remember this one? Anyways... What were they thinking? :p

I remember a print ad from the late 70's that mentioned "The Cadillac Hour..." You know, that time at the end of the day when the tired businessman loosens his tie, slides in behind the wheel and unwinds in his luxurious Caddy on the way home.

I think that the same ad men probably wrote the "Calgon, take me away" ads. But this one was aimed at men.

The only thing missing from the Caddy ad was a good stiff drink sitting on the dashboard. I'd bet that if the ad had been written in the early 60's they might have done it!
