Everything Cadillac
By Robert McLellan
 

Cadillac is the one American make for which all years of the cars and their literature are popular. The oldest cars are fondly remembered and the newer ones are greatly desired.

Over 100 years of production has meant over 100 years of quality literature. Automotive manufacturers do not produce cheap literature for expensive cars. To sell expensive cars, the literature must reflect the quality and price of the automobiles they produce. Even during the Great Depression, Cadillac produced quality literature. When car companies were under severe financial stress in the 1970s due to high oil prices, inflation and government-mandated pollution controls and safety regulations, the literature continued to reflect the price of the car it represented.

Cadillac literature is some of the most treasured literature and is the focal point in thousands of private collections throughout the world. If for some strange reason, an interest in Cadillac literature has eluded you, let me introduce you to a sample of what Cadillac has to offer:
