Cadillacs For '74: Never Mind The Gas Lines!

Fleetwood Talisman! HEI Ignition System. ChemLeather™ vinyl upholstery! (OK, we made that last one up). Even into the Malaise Era, Cadillacs retained a good helping of high-roller appeal, though the average age of those high rollers was increasing about five years per model year by then (which may have been a good thing, given the grim downward trend in both power and fuel economy out of their monster V8s). We're pretty sure Cadillac's claim that their cars had the highest resale value- uttered with great confidence in the ad- no longer holds true, though.
