What could have been: 1960 4 door Cadillac Convertible



Apparently, they were really thinking about it.
Going so far as to actually building at least one fully functioning model.

I guess something didn't work after all.
It wasn't meant to be.....

I've always thought it was interesting that Cadillac and Lincoln split the convertible market during that era - Cadillac only built 2 doors and Lincoln only built 4 doors. Almost like a mob family.

Where is the rudder to steer that boat?

I'll bet that chassis flexes like a giant rubber band.

Torsional rigidity?? What's that?

Would have been a great automobile. Wonder if rumors of this are what prompted Ford to build the 4-dr Lincoln 'vert.

Kinda pathetic that we can't seem to build a Stylish, roomy, smooth-riding 4-dr 'vert today --with all of todays technology! So sad.

BS. It's call giving up.

Succuming to the dictateS of Big Brother.

If you can make a frail minicar at all save you can CERTAINLY do it 10 times better with a REAL CAR.

Of course you'ld have to get back to 3% unemployment and raise the standard of living to 1960's-1980's USA standards for the average Joe to be able to afford a high-style ride once again!

Explains a lot about Michael's psychotic episodes in hotel bars; and why he lives like an Imperialist Pig--but not much about the rest of the real world.

My thought for the day on Mikey:
How many Michael Moores can you fit in the trunk of a '60 DeVille?

Is it for sale?
If so, how much?
