This 1930 Cadillac V16 Limo was the ultimate in style and sophistication during that period and still commands a crowd when it arrives. The coach has been restored to its original glory in every detail. Without standing next to it, it is difficult to understand the scale of the vehicle – it is enormous (a wheelbase of 154 inches and a curb weight of 6,600 pounds)! The tires alone are huge compared to modern cars. To give you an idea of the detail to which this car has been restored I’ve provided a closeup of the hood ornament. Please view the larger image and notice that the figure has lipstick on – and that’s no Photoshop trick. Hope you enjoy!
