Very nice shots. Tough to beat those large emblematic white "V" sash elements incorporated into the Eldo's seats. My favorite car upholstery of all time. So Cadillac, so Standard of the World. Clay/Lexi

Can't resist this one. The "Duke" stepping out of a 1956 Cadillac Series 75. Looks like Ward Bond next to him. If so, based on the year of car, (and Bond), this might have been a media shot taken perhaps during the screening of THE SEARCHERS (1956), the famous John Ford film. Ward Bond co-starred in that film with Wayne. Clay/Lexi

Yep! You, me and perhaps a handful of other "pilgrims" know that to be John Wayne's real name! Clay/Lexi

I remember that for the 1972 Summit, Nixon gave General Secretary of the USSR Leonid Brezhnev a 1972 Cadillac, (possibly a Limo), as he knew the Soviet leader was a car guy. Nixon obviously had good taste. Clay/Lexi

I believe it was an Eldorado.
