We think of GM body on frame, live rear axle drum braked cars of that time as quite primitive.
About 6 years ago a buddy had a '66 S60S pass thru his hands.
I stopped in to visit and saw it - triple black, not restored, not perfect, but clean.
It had plates, so I said, can I go down the street with it and he said sure. His shop was on a side street, backed by a residential section of a small city.

Apparently... I went to another plane of existence or something, because my phone jolted me back to reality; 'Where are you- that's not registered or insured!'
It was 20-25 minutes later, I was a handful of miles away, driving, floating on a cloud of sensory deprivation.
That was the best riding car I can think I ever drove.

And I say that having owned 23 vehicles with the average model year of 1969.

In yet another indicator of Cadillac's ongoing brand rehabilitation, only BMW outpaced Cadillac in consideration by buyers. Inherent value assigned to the brand appears to be eternal, in spite of GM's clumsy and bungling mismanagement over several decades. In first quarter 2022, Cadillac leap frogged AUDI, Tesla, Benz and Lexus.
