1959 $$$$CADILLAC ELDORADO$$$$
American fascination with the automotive tail fin began in the late 40's and was inspired later in the 50's by the jet age. The tail fin race peaked in 1959 with Cadillac winning mainly over Chrysler for fin supremacy, Ford played along but it wasn't part of their design plan to be involved in one-upmanship. By the mid 60's the fin had faded away, fun while it lasted though.
