Shorpy Saturday – Eldorado: 1955

By Jeffrey Buck

The automobile has evolved over time. Materials, size and badging have all changed over the years to accommodate changes in lifestyle and cost. The curves and lines of this 1956 Cadillac have long since been replaced with more aerodynamic designs and will again change as new technology is discovered and created.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Elderado: 1955“:
