Hello!

On my way home from a car meet tonight I sat and thought about what persons, who, I related to different car brands and of coarse I thought about Cadillac first.

The persons i could think of was.

Henry M Leland of coarse as the founder.

Elvis P for all his Cadillacs and the last trip with all the white Cadillacs.

Hank Williams sr for his death in the backseat of a Cadillac at age only 29.:alchi:


Then Lincoln.

I think of Henry M Leland here to, as the founder of lincoln to.

The one i think is most related to lincoln for me must be John F kennedy.


Porsche.
James Dean.


Strange that murders or other accidents have such a big part of how I relate people to different car brands.


Please share your's "people connections" that you think of when you think of a car brand.
It may bee close people as relatives, or artists, or persons in the industri or whom ever you connect to a certaint brand

Others brands i think of is.

Mercedes diesel- My Father, The car of my childhood. MB 220 D D as in dead(slow)

Opel Kadett- My grand mothers last car. The car rusted faster then she drove.


Jolle.

Dustin Hoffman starred in a movie when he was younger called "The Graduate", in which his character drove around in a late '60s Alfa Romeo Spyder...pretty famous movie actually.
