YAK Car Pic of the Day

It may not have had the tallest of fins, but this 1956 Cadillac Series 62 coupe’s rear fenders had just enough of a kick in them to carry on the tradition started in 1949, a tradition which wouldn’t fully die out until the introduction of the more-rounded 2000 de Ville. Oh sure, over the years there was often merely the suggestion of a tainfin, but the Cadillac stylists seemed to have a really hard time letting-go totally of their biggest styling gimmick — one which you could say made a comeback (as a suggestion, not a full-blown tailfin) with the introduction of the 2005 CTS. This red-and-white beauty was seen last summer at the Cadillac owners’ show at Keyser Cadillac in Williamsville.
