  1. While a late ’40s Cadillac and Lincoln are certainly pretty, in my garage sits a beautiful 1939 Chevrolet Master Deluxe 4 door sedan. With a straight six and newly rebuilt 3 speed stick shift, my classic runs smooth and looks amazing for 75 years old!

  2. I am a caddy (GMC) fan, especially in the 50s however I find the older lincolns such as the red one above are so elegantly designed that I would go for the Lincoln in a heart beat. IMO this car screams luxury and sits alone in styling and design unlike the Caddy.

  3. Without any doubt 48 lincoln!In the 30s and especially 40s lincoln RULED cadillac PERIOD!STILL TO THIS DAY the 48 lincoln is a museum work of art(A PROVEN FACT)!I could go on and on….CASE CLOSED! BEST REGARDS, LORD SYRUS

  4. I’m gonna be neutral, both cars are so wonderful craftsmanship that was made in the USA. I would be honored to have either of those in my garage. I am fond of Cadillacs, so much I do have a 1949 Cadillac series 75 limousine Sitting in my garage with 21,000 original miles a beautiful example of luxury. Look us up on Facebook!
