Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

Six horizontal doors on either side of the long engine hood, each with a chrome handle, help release the heat generated by the big engine. A small chrome parking light perches atop each front fender.

A 7.50x17-inch spare tire is nestled inside each of the two metal shrouds of the side mounts. ‘The detail work on the back of the side mirrors is incredible,’ Mr. Cross says admiringly.

At the other end of the Cadillac is the trunk rack, which can be folded down to provide a platform on which luggage - or a trunk - can be secured.

Under and behind that rack is the 30-gallon gasoline tank. On each rear fender is a ‘blue dot’ taillight that was installed at the factory.

Inside the sumptuous Cadillac are polished wooden window frames and plush upholstery.

Near the driver’s knee, the hand brake and gear shift lever seemingly grown from the floorboards of the Fisher body.

From behind the three-spoke steering wheel the speedometer in the polished instrument panel stands ready to record speeds up to 100 mph.

In creature comforts nothing has been overlooked and Mrs. Cross stands by her first impression of the luxurious Cadillac.
