YAK Car Pic of the Day

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

If you were to ask, based on the view from the driver’s seat, which was my favorite car at last Sunday’s Western New York Region Cadillac & Lasalle Club show at Keyser Cadillac, the hand’s-down winner would be this 1940 LaSalle convertible coupe. The LaSalle was a second nameplate, which debuted in 1927, to give buyers a lower-cost option for putting themselves behind the wheel of a Cadillac. The nameplate was dropped after the 1940 models because, some opined, having a lower-priced nameplate in the stable somehow diminished Cadillac’s prestige. It certainly didn’t hurt overall sales when it was discontinued; it was replaced in the lineup for 1941 by a new, lower-priced Cadillac Series 61 which was, after all… a Cadillac and not a LaSalle.
