Walter does it again. That Cadillac is just a few years newer than the time I began hating luxury cars! It also is representative of the time when the "Jet Airplane" look was in.

Do you have any shots of the car that had the twin bullet taillights? It was either a Lincoln or a Caddy, late 50s to early 60s. It had two taillight lenses on each side shaped like the business end of a bullet. The lenses were about 3 inches in diameter and about 6 inches long. My neighbor had one when I was a kid and he said the biggest problem with these taillights was that people kept stealing the lenses.

I think this is the one you are thinking of. A Caddy from the 50s.

Yep, that's it. It is one of the most unique looking cars to come from that era. The one my neighbor had was cream colored which gave a much more "rich" look. The one you show here in red looks more sporty. It was about the time this car came out that I began to hate luxury cars, especially Lincolns and Caddilacs. 50 years later and I still don't like them. I've added a few more to the list but I'll stop while I'm ahead.

Thanks for posting the picture. By the way, I think this picture fits the challenge just fine.
