This is the story of the seat and the trunk. It seems that the complete car was crumpled, almost up until it’s boot area. What remained was an intact backside and a seat. So fitted together, they make a ride into memory lane, offered you by Route66, surprisingly a Swiss company. This new seat still has its working taillights and it’s bubble gum colour making it an object of pure Kitsch. Car furniture like this was also featured in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction.
In an age where everything was jet-inspired, where everything seemed rocket powered and the sky no longer was the limit, the Cadillac Coupe De Ville had the biggest wings of them all. It couldn’t fly though, it’s V8 power plant only produced 352 hp to boost the 2100 kg metal vessel. It’s one of the biggest coupes ever made (5715 mm) and maybe that’s why a certain singer, nicknamed The King, called it, his favourite ride.
