The ’58 Cadillac

June 2024

Olivier Bernier’s well-written piece on the 1958 Cadillac (“American Made,” May/June) neatly captures the spirit of the industry at that time—as well as the way the Cadillac embodied that spirit.

I think it’s interesting that even with all the improvements we’ve made in today’s automobiles, styling and “personality” are still very high priorities for our customers. Today, as in 1958, it seems that you are what you drive.

I really enjoyed the article.
