From The CT6 To The Model A Runabout

A fun Friday read for those who protested that there were too many negative editorials regarding Cadillac recently. Reader Forest Casey published an astonishingly detailed essay on Medium detailing the history of Cadillac, from the establishment of the brand right through to production of its first car, the Model A Runabout, and its stewardship under Alfred Sloan’s General Motors conglomerate.

The Cadillac Model A sure looks a lot like the Ford Model A from about the same period; I wonder if that is because Henry Ford was involved with both companies at one point, or for the same marketing reasons that most cars today look alot alike.
Naw, it resembles a Curved Dash Oldmobile. GM was platform sharing in the other "oughts" too!
Well done Mr. Casey ! . I especially like your conclusion . -Nate
Great pictures, but where are the inked-up, 400 pound, open carry patriots with their pants hanging down to their knees? Where are the flip-flop wearing zombettes selfie-ing themselves? How come there isn't a Grease Burger and Barfbucks franchise on every corner? America really looked primitive back then.
