A 50' Caddy. Now this is something that is totally ignored/forgotten. I like the last picture. Imagine if this was a movie and the scene was like the last picture with the 1950 Cadillac in front of the house. Now lets say the scene goes black and a sentence appears and states ( NINE YEARS LATER)
A new scene then appears in front of the same house with a 1959 famous finned Cadillac in the same exact spot.

OMG! What a car! Thanks for the early B-day gift guys! (It's Saturday) I haven't seen one of
these since I passed on buying it nearly 30 years ago. As I recall, it was in a condition that
was just as good--or slightly better than this car. It was Maroon with a Cream top, and a
matching interior. After seeing this car, I'd like to see more pictures of the engine and the
interior too. One thing's for sure, I'd like to be the guy who owns it!

Now THIS is a beautiful car. Best of Nomination from me, and for the Dart above too.

I'm friends with the owner, and happened to stop by for photos the day he said it was going in for some interior restoration. The stock engine is also going to be cleaned up and get a new wiring harness. I think some major customization and repaint is in the works.

Ben, I hope he doesn't alter the car too much. It's gorgeuos just the way it is. If he
wants to sell it, I'll gladly come and get it! It would look great parked in my driveway
here in Auburndale, Fl. I won't let this one get away!

My Aunt had a Chrysler New Yorker from the early 50's, it may have been a '53. It was a deep blue, almost black.
She traded it on a 1963 New Yorker. It was that dark green-blue.

Cadillac owned the '50s luxury car market! Nobody else was close. Domestic or import. Not Packard, or Lincoln, or Chrysler, or Rolls Royce.

What was the average length of a car in 1950? I would also like to know the average length of cars in the 1940 and how does it compare to today's cars in length.
