Tom Snyder (Tomorrow Show, Late Late Show, etc) was a Cadillac guy and owned a variety of new Cadillacs during the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s.  When he retired from The Late Late Show in 1999, David Letterman gave him a 1960 Cadillac Series 62 convertible.  Snyder ended up selling the car a few years later ("too much upkeep") and replaced it with a new 2002 Ford Thunderbird.

i like looking at these vintage authentic  Candid pictures of people and their Cadillacs . Some of the pictures are very interesting . I really liked Dolly with the 64 although that might of been staged it really told a story .  Couldn't figure out if she was coming or going . I have added a few more . By the way i think the 3 young scouts at Ebbets   field were infatuated  with the interior of the 57 Biarritz , I think  Marilyn was blocking their view .

The bumpers were named after the American actress Dagmar.  I have no idea why.
