Illustration for article titled What To Drive This July 4th? Bicentennial Eldorado!

Coming not quite two years after Richard Nixon's resignation and just barely a year after the Fall Of Saigon, the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence was somewhat muted by Malaise. Meanwhile, Cadillac was building its last convertible Eldorados.

Actually, the 1976 Bicentennial Eldorado convertibles were the last Eldorados GM built... until 1984, when buyers could purchase an Eldorado Biarritz convertible. Still, it felt like a bittersweet last hurrah for the big ol' convertible at the time, and so the Bicentennial Eldorado becomes The Most Patriotic Car You Can Drive.
