Abandoned Car of the Week

It was not until 1948 that Cadillac came out with an all-new post-war design including the first use of tailfins. The 1947 convertible captured here as an abandoned car carried on with the pre-war design. Cadillac sold only 61,926 cars in 1947, but still led luxury brands Packard and Lincoln in sales. This abandoned Caddy was found in a Texas salvage yard. (Photo by Peter Hubbard)
