★ A truly fabulous image to advertise a fabulous car. They really don’t make them like this anymore! (Neither the car, nor the advert.) Intended to advertise the swanky Cadillac Sedan de Ville, this gorgeous illustration is by Jon Whitcomb and dates from 1956. Retailing for $4,698 when it was first sold, that’s the equivalent of over $40,000 today!
