Cad­dies come to town

The Tribune (NZ) - - OUT & ABOUT -

A cen­tury of Cadil­lacs called in to The Square on Satur­day as the NZ Cadil­lac Car Club Na­tion­als came to the city.

20 ex­am­ples of the pres­ti­gious Amer­i­can mar­que made the trip from Whanganui, stop­ping off at Feild­ing’s Coach House Mu­seum be­fore head­ing to Palmer­ston North.

From more mod­est be­gin­nings at the be­gin­ning of last cen­tury to the finned and chromed ex­cessess of the 50s and 60s, the name has al­ways been as­so­ci­ated with qual­ity and lux­ury. ‘‘While rid­ing in my Cadil­lac What to my sur­prise A lit­tle Nash Ram­bler was fol­low­ing me About one third my size The guy musta wanted to pass me up As he kept on toot­ing his horn I’ll show him that a Cadil­lac is not a car to scorn Beep beep, beep beep - his horn went beep beep beep’’ – Beep Beep, The Play­mates, 1959 The oc­ca­sion was cap­tured by pho­tog­ra­pher David Unwin.
