    Note location. Unusual to see the top of the line in S.A. Note too the number of accessories.

              • I had never heard of this before. It is a giant 1935 Land Cruiser at the 1934 Chicago World's Fair. Check it out here http://auto.howstuffworks.com/1934-1...d-cruiser7.htm

                    In any case, it sure is a rare model, being the Steamliner "fastback" rather than the more conventional, and more popular, "notchback" sedan. 1950 was the last model year for the Steramliner fastback in a 4-door sedan, but the Streamliner 2-door was continued into 1951. BP
                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                    Ayn Rand:
                    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                                I wish I had some informaiton about the picture, but I don't. I assume, as you did, that the Caddy is part of some auction, raffle, etc.. I found the picture on the H.A.M.B.
