1946 Cadillac Crest

Published:

Description

Since my early-teens, I've always had a fondness for classic American cars-especially Cadillacs. (in particular, those from the mid-30's right through to the early-70's)

I thought I'd show my appreciation of this mark with a piece of artwork. It is based on the front end of the 1946 Cadillac. 1946 was the year when the Cadillac shield was supplemented by the now-famous "V" crest. This motif was foreshadowed on the V8/V12 badges seen on the grilles of 1930-32 Cadillacs.

Please excuse any slight inaccuracies seeing as adequate visual reference for this design was hard to come by.
