After starting out with subjects from the 80s+ ["The Malaise Era"],
they retreated into the 40s and 50s, always a safe bet. Too bad they chose such underachieving subjects, like the 80s and 90s Cadillacs and Lincolns and early minivans. The most ridiculous choice was the '86 Buick which was instantly despised as a 1:1. Who picks these subjects, here and elsewhere? And, of course, the 60s are completely bypassed.

I'll give them this: one of their first isuses are the '76 Lincolns from the Barge Era. They are magnificently detailed with 3 spot-on color combos matching all three of the "Luxury Group' trim packages available that year. I have both 2 and 4 door examples which are highlights of my collection.

Yes, a slightly more modest pace would help. (EOM) by David Crowe #26225.5.2.1
I think they should focus on the 1960s decade myself. A great era for Cadillac. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #26225.5.2.2
