YAK Car Pic of the Day

A couple of weeks ago in this space you saw a pretty sad-looking ’69 Caddy. A few days ago I spotted this much healthier-looking 1970 Cadillac Coupe de Ville in North Tonawanda. The 1970 models were merely a freshening-up of the ’69s, as General Motors was pretty much in a two-to-three-year styling cycle back then, unlike today where the cars remain the same for years and years. And just to prove that a total restyle wasn’t always necessary to spur sales, the 1970 models outsold the 1969s. Money well-spent, GM stylists.
