Fins & Tails Friday – 1959 Cadillac Cyclone XP-74
The Cyclone was the last General Motors concept car created for the famed Motoramas, the design heavily inspired by the aviation and rocket designs of the 1950’s. This is its second iteration with chopped fins and a retractable bubble-top, which folds under the decklid for a sleek and open silhouette.
This can be seen at the Taubman Museum of Art’s exhibit
Drive! Iconic American Cars and Motorcycles until Feb. 3, 2019 in Roanoke, VA.
