I recall an article in a 1961 either Popular Mechanix or Popular Science written by Tom McCahill wherein he put side-by-side the 1959 Cadillac and the 1961 Imperial and measured their tail-fins. (They were both the extreme in height). The 1959 Cadillac is always credited with the largest fins, but in reality, it was the Imperial of 1961 that surpassed the '59 Caddy by exactly one inch.
