23. 1948 Cadillac Series 61 Sedanette
The Cadillac Series 61 Sedanette is, in many ways, the car that best represents Cadillac design. It has the intimidating upright grille and rounded fenders of the earlier years, a rakish roofline, and the beginnings of the fins that would develop gigantism in the '50s. It all came together in a way that is striking without being ridiculous.
