If Only I Had a (Really Big) Garage: 1965 Cadillac DeVille

Much celebrated are the kitschy excesses of the '50s, but it was after the fins peaked in '59 that things got interesting at Cadillac: the cars grew even bigger, but they disguised their outlandishness with perfect proportions and newfound stylistic restraint. This '65 is a nice example, a true four-door hardtop that might not actually fit anywhere outside of Texas but damn if she ain't pretty to look at.

According to the seller this car was ordered with the exceedingly-rare-for-1965 anti-lock brakes option, which sneaky Germans would not discover, reverse-engineer, and reintroduce to the world until sometime in the mid-1980s.
