    Icon6 Shannons Ad

    Anyone thinking what I'm thinking about the latest Shannons ad featuring a 1950's Cadillac, and the bloke saying it was the most advanced car in THE WORLD? I could forgive Americans for making such statements, who think the world lies within their borders, but Shannons surely realise their clients here in Australia enjoy cars from broader horizons; as a Citroen enthusiast, I'm peeved.
    There's no point discussing which cars are more advanced than others, I just can't see an American car that way.

    I'm assuming he's talking about the Eldorado Brougham which WAS the most advanced car at the time of introduction. While it didn't have the high pressure hydraulic systems of Citroen, it did have air suspension, power windows, power seats, A/C, auto release park brake and much more. It was also more expensive then a Rolls Royce, iirc it was the most expensive production car during it's production. American cars, and especially Cadillac, can be a lot more advanced then people give then credit for. Now if only they weren't so over the top with their styling, although the Eldorado Broughams were rather restrained compared to their stablemates.

    Where else would a roof be if it wasn't over the top
