Cadillac


1936 Cadillac Limousine

If you ever wondered why the luggage compartment of your car was and is called a "trunk", you need only look at the back of this car to know.  On most early American cars, the luggage was not carried inside. Instead there was a rack on the back of the car on which people placed their "trunks" after they packed them.

This car is a V-12 and is one of the largest cars Cadillac built.  Cadillac did have a V-16 limousine, which looked like a railroad car because of its size.

Cadillac, Packard and Lincoln built magnificent motor cars in the 20s and 30s, even though there were few roads on which to drive.  Note the window between the passengers and the driver. Also note the microphone in the rear so the passenger could give orders to the driver.
