    This car is wonderful. I love pretty much every Cadillac up to '74, but the '30's models, especially the V16 models, always stand out in my mind. The quality, the V16 bragging rights, the comfort - these are truly unique cars, definitely some of the best cars ever made, deserving of the reverence shown by fans. Sure, they weren't overly fast, but they did weigh the better part of 3 tons (some like this were over) with all the aerodynamics of a sticky brick, and were tuned for smoothness and torque rather than power. They left power to the sportier (but slightly less comfortable) Duesenbergs. Now they need to add the '37 V16 Roadster bodied by Hartmann, it's a Figoni + Falaschi look-a-like, seen here: http://www.car-nection.com/yann/Dbas_txt/16hrtm.htm
