Here is all the info I have on them:

ASSOCIATED PRESS

LANSING [Michigan] -- The last of a commemorative series of Cadillac Eldorados rolled off a local General Motors Corp. assembly line Monday, company officials said.

The last Eldorado of the 1,596-car Collector Series' 2002 line, which was built to mark the end of the Eldorado's production, was completed at the Lansing Craft Center.

The 2002 collector series is available in Alpine White and Aztec Red, two of the Eldorado's original colors. The cars were limited to reflect the original 532 Eldorados, which were built in 1953.

The early Eldorados featured the tail fin, which was one of the most famous designs in American automobile history. GM said the fin was inspired by the Lockheed P-38 Lightening Aircraft.

The Eldorado was a 'halo' car for Cadillac and marked the beginning of a long period of luxury leadership for the Eldorado nameplate and the Cadillac brand, said Mark LaNeve, Cadillac General Manager.

The last Eldorado made at the Lansing plant will be donated to the Cadillac Museum in honor of Don Massey, who owned one of the largest Cadillac dealerships in the United States, GM said.

Nicola Bulgari will purchase the second to last Eldorado to add to his collection of classic cars in Rome, the Detroit-based automaker said.
