The 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz was the standard of the world

A bittersweet reminder of Cadillac’s glory days. I 'm surprised the GM marketing department would place a work of art like the Eldorado Biarritz next to the bland, soulless, committee designed, rebadged Cadillacs of today. Wow! what a contrast.

I’m still rooting that someday they’ll be the “Standard Of The World” once again.
