Never before has the Cadillac automobile been so comprehensively examined as in this definitive and updated history of the car that set the "Standard of the World." And never before has there been a volume that so lavishly presents the pictorial documentation of that history—more than 600 photographs, including a portfolio of 110 cars in magnificent color. Maurice D. Hendry weaves the fabric of the Cadillac's history starting with Henry Martyn Leland, his early years in precision manufacture and his formation of a company to build a car named after Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, the explorer who discovered Detroit. The story continues through the more than nine decades of drama and glory that have led to the contemporary Sevilles, De Villes, Eldorados, et al. which carry on the Cadillac name and tradition. Cadillac has packed a lot into this century—two Dewar Trophy awards for the development of the self-starter and standardization of parts, the production of classic motorcars with twelve or sixteen cylinders, the technical achievements of the 1930's, the military production work in two world wars, the pacesetting postwar cars with V-8 engines and tailfms, the front-wheel drive idea of the Eldorado, the new package size of the Seville and the glamorous Allante and European-flavored Catera, the winning of the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 1990 and the introduction of the innovative Northstar System. Nothing is missed here. And the narrative is spiced by reminiscences of those who were there when it happened, those who made it happen. This boolealso presents an illuminating (and gorgeous) pictorial album of Cadillacs in the classic years, with commentary by David R. Holls; an update for the Nineties by John A. Heilig; a special illustrated supplement on the history of the LaSalle by Jeffrey I. Godshall; a study of Cadillac heraldry by Harry Puffer and Joe Trainor; Cadillac production records researched by William R. Tite and the editors; plus, for the enthusiast's ready reference, a digest of specifications. The Cadillac has always deserved a full-scale luxurious presentation of its history. This is the book that provides it.
