No Room For The Cadillac Engine? Get The Emblem!

When I saw the junked '71 Eldorado last weekend, I said the same thing to its engine-displacement emblems that (ex-schoolteacher) Chaim Witz said to 16-year-old Christine when he saw her walking home from school: I got to have you! Of course, I didn't mean quite the same thing by my statement (you hope), but the upshot is that I've got a companion for the Super-Malaise Cadillac V8-6-4 emblem now stuck on my office bulletin board. Apparently The General's marketing types felt that the British "Litre" spelling would give the Eldo added style; we can also see this philosophy on the '73 Grand Am.
