Cadillac Eldorado Brougham -- "The Cadillac of Cadillacs"
"The Cadillac of Cadillacs" is the only way to describe the 1957-58
Eldorado Brougham. A Cadillac like no other, it was a limited production
four door hardtop, GM's response to the previous year's introduction of the
Continental Mark II.
Priced at $10,000, the Continental, clearly, was a high-ticket gauntlet
Ford threw down before GM. Cadillac countered with the Brougham, a tour de
force of advanced, even experimental, engineering and over-the-top
opulence; it is, perhaps, the most flamboyant car of the '50's.

At the 2010 Grand National Roadster Show, I found the John D'Agostino built
Elvis II. It's a 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible, a rare caddy
indeed. As amazing as the custom is, it took 3rd in its class at GNRS
