Ever since the beginning of the automobile, people have admired the big cars with lots of shiny chrome outside and luxury touches inside. By the fifties, owning a Cadillac was a universally accepted symbol of success and stature. If that Cadillac happened to be an Eldorado, that put one in a class separate and above that of even other Cadillac owners. Over the years, the Eldorado changed. It started out as an exclusive convertible in 1953, and by 1957 had expanded to three models-the Biarritz Convertible, Seville Hardtop Coupe, and Eldorado Brougham, a four door hardtop with stainless steel roof. These cars were among the most expensive on the road, anywhere. We can't really put our finger on it. Is it creativity? Imagination? Inspiration? Whatever it is, these cars have it and most new cars don't. Is it wasteful to drive such a large car given today's interest in economizing and saving the environment? We'll answer that with another question: Is it wasteful to go to sports events? Concerts? Drive to the golf course? All use fuel, and none are necessary activities. Having a classic car is a hobby, and like all hobbies they take time, cost money, and may be a bit wasteful. But with a classic car, you can bring it home, put it in your garage and admire it every time you go into the garage. Golf clubs may be great, but really, do you enjoy looking at them? Large personal luxury cars like the Eldorado were a snapshot of a time in America when being creative, or extravagant, or a bit daring was OK. They represent a time when a new automobile was truly a work of art to be admired by all. They were individual, unique. We may never see a time like that again, but thank goodness cars like the 1978 Eldorado still exist to prove that there was once a time when owning a grand car was possible. A time when sporty didn't mean tiny. When flashy didn't mean huge chrome rims and skinny little tires. There was a time when we had cars that could truly inspire one's imagination. When getting there and back home again was a big part of the fun. The 1978 Cadillac Eldorado has always been such a car. You park it in the driveway, and you glance back at it before you go in the house. You are proud to own it, even if it may seem outdated and wasteful to those who don't take the time to understand. It reflects a different time in America, when men and women created rolling works of art every year, and people bought them and drove them without giving it much thought. Even today, some are just now beginning to see what we've lost along the way. Cadillac Eldorado has always been the world's finest personal luxury car! And it's doubtful that anything being made today will ever challenge that title.
