Did you know that there is a town in France which is named Cadillac?
If I have a Cadillac again I will definitely drive 1.300 km down to that place. Perfect photo shoot locations everywhere. :sunnynana:

Accidentally found it while I was searching for Cadillac sales figures in France and had to share it. ;)

Here is an article about Cadillac, France:

I think this is pretty common knowledge, but what the hell.

Wikipedia -

Cadillac was formed from the remnants of the Henry Ford Company. After Henry Ford departed the Henry Ford Company along with several of his key partners in March 1902, the company was dissolved. Ford's financial backers, William Murphy and Lemuel Bowen, called in engineer Henry M. Leland of Leland & Faulconer Manufacturing Company to appraise the plant and equipment in preparation for a liquidation of the company's assets.

Instead of offering an appraisal, Leland persuaded Murphy and Bowen to continue manufacturing automobiles using Leland's proven single-cylinder engine. A new company called the Cadillac Automobile Company was established on 22 August 1902. The company was named after French explorer Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac, who founded Detroit in 1701.
