When it comes to Cadillac and the Fifties, everyone thinks of the crazy 1959 model, with its gargantuan chrome bumpers, oversized hulking body lines, and sky-high fins. That’s a shame, because it means that the cleaner styling of the mid-Fifties models often gets overlooked. This red Biarritz convertible featured some fantastic cues, such as the lashings of chrome everywhere, and a great license plate. For those of you who don’t know what it means, “GOOMAH” is a colloquial spelling of the Italian “comare”, which is a term used for a mistress. According to the owner’s wife, she asked for this plate because the owner spends more time with the car than with her. Enjoy the photos.
