The idea of luxury vehicles has changed tremendously over the past few decades. One thing has remained consistent: big, imposing vehicles are a status symbol.
That was true with the 1973 Cadillac Eldorado, and it remains one of the reasons why consumers can’t stop buying the 2016 Cadillac Escalade. Petrolicious took a look back at the 1973 Eldorado in particular, traveling to Peru to find a Scottish gentleman keeping the land yacht alive.
The owner tells of his ownership experience as a distinct one and says the Eldorado gets smiles everywhere it goes. Knowing Cadillacs weren’t exported to South America, it’s a treat for people to see the 1973 Eldorado on the road where it continues to capture the essence of traditional, American luxury still to this day.
