1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz // Bring A Trailer

Much like the GT350R I shot last month, the 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz is an American Icon. It is the car many enthusiasts associate the 50's with. Larger than life in just about all ways, and that's before we get to the absolutely massive fins. Every detail on this car is just so ornate from the intricate detailing in the grill, to the tail light design and chrome trim. This car comes from a time when the design of a car wasn't dictated by corporate identities and safety regulations. It was driven by true artistry and passion for automobiles. What fascinated me the most with this Caddy was the technology. Can you believe that in 1959 features like a soft close trunk lid, automatic high beams, power vent windows and adaptive stereo volume came as standard options? I can only imagine what people must have thought more than 60 years ago! The fantastic owner of this car had a great story behind it, and looked right at home behind the wheel. This particular car has been left untouched for the majority of its life and It was refreshing to see a car of this caliber not restored. On another note, this is how you cause traffic jams in small town USA. I have never in my career as an automotive photographer been interrupted more during a shoot than with this car. Every single person that drove by wanted to chat about the car and take photos. That being said, how often do you get to see these on the road? I probably would have done the same.
