Don, thank you for writing this article. I grew up a Cadillac fan. My dad owned 5 starting with 1979. I became an enthusiast collecting articles and pictures at a young age. In college, I was a staff writer of an automotive column for the school’s paper. Although I didn’t write about it, it was then that I discovered that Leland created Lincoln, also. I knew about Cadillac in elementary school. I don’t think that many outside of car hobby or Detroit know this fact. I am in Maryland and I can that this fact is know by very few. So many generations later, the people behind the names are slowly getting lost. Thank you for the article and I hope that others enjoy this reminder as well as those learning more about the history of this industry.
All the best,
