    1954-56 Fleetwood Sixty Special - I would drive one of these...

    1936-40 Fleetwood - any of the large Fleetwood models tickle me pink, especially the Fleetwood Town Car! Life couldn't get any better than these, imagine one with original outside coachwork with a modern chassis underneath - I'd drive one, correction: be driven in one every day!

    I'm sure I will have to add to this list! As time goes by and I keep reading my Cadillac books and seeing Cars at shows and on the roads, and I continually find my dreams expanding to older and/or different vintages and varieties of Cadillacs. The classic Cadillacs are quite impressive for American masterpieces and represent what the U.S. is all about - greatness!

    What are your favorite classic Cadillacs????

    I'm all about 1968. It's so interesting to watch the previous years and see the evolution.

    Re: What are your favorite "Classic" Cadillacs?

    I love the '65s, due to their fabulously tasteful interiors and dashes. All of the models had great interiors, even the Calais. Some of the '66s got a little weird, IMO, with the wood planks on the doors on the Sixty Special and Eldorado being especially so. I have a soft spot for the '79 deVille d'elegance, because it's suspension and still powerful engine made it drive like a sport sedan (Car and Driver agreed). I love a friend's 1941 4-door convertible, though don't want to own it particularly, and I love the looks of the '38 Sixty Special. I also admire the '67-'68 Eldorado and the '75-'79 Sevilles. My favorite, though, is my friend's 1960 Eldorado Brougham, all original black with dove grey leather. I believe these hand built cars are under-appreciated compared to the '57-'58s, but are quite wonderful in their own ways.

    Re: What are your favorite "Classic" Cadillacs?

    I like the long hooded V16s and 67-70 models for their sharp lines.
    I love the hide-away headlights of the 67-68 Eldorado.
    I am not so fond of Cadillacs after '70 as more and more plastic had to be incorporated in the exterior.
