1956 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz at the 2015 Radnor Hunt Concours

1956 Cadillac Eldorado Interior

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.
