That's a well-cared-for beauty. Love those tailfins! I'll bet that's a lot of fun to drive with the top down on a sunny day.

A friend's dad had a black one, growing up. He bought it around 1970 and kept it forever, to his wife's lasting consternation. I remember spirited discussions about its status: classic, antique or piece of junk.

It's the model men wouldn't buy because of those Jane Russells on the front.

Having looked at the 2nd shot now, no, my friend's dad's was a '55 or '58 Cadillac sedan, newer and blockier and bustier than the one pictured.

a car can be busty? I'm smiling here -- thank you!

Methinks it's a '58 Eldorado, no?

That sounds right to me, but I'm not well-versed in the details. Looks like the cars I found on a Flickr search for 1958 Eldorado, anyway.

Another beauty, and I hope to get a shot of it sooner or later. Something much older--from the '30s, I'd guess--but I haven't seen it close-up enough to get a make/model.
