My dad had a 1962 Cadillac when I was about 8.  He brought the car home and was so proud of it.  Like he won the lottery.  I just remember the chrome, the styling, the status.   Cadillac floundered in the late 70's/80's and into the 90's.  Now its a whole new company.  America has shown the world we can build top notch vehicles.  Thanks to the engineers, managers at Cadillac for saving a piece of American history.

Well, I'm a Cadillac salesmen and been in love with Cadillac from the time I was 8 years old (1975)!  With that said, I can understand most of the cars listed but I also agree with Stitch429 below with the 76 Seville.  The sad part is that I feel Cadillac is no longer the type of "Cadillac" we all think of and it shows by the majority showing on this list.  Today Cadillac has become no more than the American version of BMW and Mercedes.  How sad to me.  So, even though I still like my Caddy's, the ones I really enjoy and look for are the older ones that really are Cadillac.  I may be the lone wolf here, but give me any Caddy from the 60/70/80/90's over anything they offer today.  Why must everything have sunroofs?  Computer screens?  Run flat tires?  Bucket seats?  Sport suspensions, etc, etc. 


I know that I may get a lot of comments telling me I'm crazy, but if I wanted a BMW like vehicle I'd purchase one.  When I earn enough money to buy one, I'm getting my 1977-79 DeVille or Fleetwood sedan to sit along side my 2005 DeVille with my split bench seat!!  At least in my 2005 I can drive hundreds of miles in comfort vs. the new ones with confining bucket seats that are hard and make you want to scream after 100 miles.  Hey Cadillac (or Buick), are you listening??

The best Cadillac ever made was the 1957 Eldorado Brougham. It was virtually hand built, it had a stainless steel roof, air suspension, duel carburetion, 325 HP engine, suicide doors and many other options that weren't available on other autos. It was the best looking and riding  Cadillac ever. The cost about $13,000 a lot of money in those days, but it was the ultimate auto and still is.

The 1976 Seville should have been included in this list.

I don't think every recent Cadillac shaped Cadillac.  I agree with the early Cad choices, but you skipped over some to concentrate on the Dope-dealer ghetto cruisers.   No thanks.

Thank you for the Cadillac Article! I love the marque. It is truly a legendary auto. I am grateful,that they are making a come back from the vehicles that went down hill in the 80's. However,they must remember that they are CADILLACS ! Great names like Fleetwood,Eldorado,Deville,63 Special,mean so much !   They must be a style leader,and not follower. Class,power,presence,glamor,excitment,and a little controversy.TOTAL COOOOL !  The 63-64 belongs here. 'The most beloved Cadiilac Ever". The adds at the time said. So does the 76 Sevelle. When I was a boy ,we all were thrilled by them.

Just read an article on leftlanenews.com that states Cadillac only sold 99 ELR's through the end of February.  Pathetic!  Again, speaking as a Cadillac salesperson, this car should have NEVER happened!  The amount of money spent bringing the ELR to market will be a waste.  Let's look at some of Caddy's/GM's similar blunders:  Allante 1987 to 1993, RIP.  XLR 2004 to 2009, RIP. Now this way overpriced car starting in 2014 and I give it till maybe 2020 max. I hope they prove me wrong, but from the looks of it I have history on my side.


Now, stop trying to produce something (like the ELR) that people don' t really want and instead put the extra money into a flagship full-sized car and/or taking your products from really good to untouchable in terms of materials, workmanship, reliability and quality!

Cadillac needs to go back to it's roots,it has a lot of rich history to tell and a lot of class too,I am a Caddy fan and collector, Cadillac doesn't need to copy Europe to compete,it needs to be all American,period,soft seats,large and beautiful bodies and powerful engines. The old classic names need to be use instead of the "Alphabet Soup" to pretend it has European flair,cars like M-B and BMW have hard seats and small interiors;Lexus is a very reliable car......but a boring,souless machine not to be considered,I look at my 5 classics and think that Cadillac can have a bright future if the GM brass cares for their customers. GM,the choice is yours

I never understood why they didn't put this one into production. Maybe with a smaller engine and call it The Eight Or the Ten. It is the absolute most beautiful Caddy ever built.

Cadillac has been on a roll since 2004 and that new CTS is rolling art.
