1958 Cadillac Eldorado Review
The Eldorado Brougham, Very Rare But Very Nice! — This is a beautiful car. Pity there were only 700 made between 1957 and 1958. Try to buy one, the price is not for the feint of heart; however it oozes style and quality. Drinking and driving cannot have been much of a problem in 1957 since this car came with 6 magnetic tumblers to be put on the glovebox lid. There was also a perfume atomizer, and other vanities which are still very sought after today. I still need an original atomizer which a girlfriend of the previous owner ran off with. Performance is OK, maintenance is straightforward however some parts are very hard to find.
Pros: What a presence! A great conversation piece at car shows.
Cons: Finding some of the rarer parts.
