Junked Eldorado Biarritz Keeps Late Malaise Era Alive In Our Hearts

The Late Malaise Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz, with its stainless-steel roof panel and Barcalounger-esque button-tucked leather seats, was all about class.


That's why the opening sequence of Casino shows De Niro's Ace Rothstein character getting blown up in a Biarritz, because what goes better with turquoise shoes and casino management than this car? Sadly, nobody seems interested in preserving this piece of our automotive heritage, and thus most Biarritzes take that last ride to The Crusher when they develop a problem that can't be fixed by duct tape and/or a New Car Smell air freshener.
