Classic Cadillac Tail Fins, Los Angeles Photocolorized Series

I hope you enjoy these old Cadillac tail fins.

The earliest automobile tail fins were said to be inspired by World War II fighter aircraft. As the designs evolved they came to resemble more contemporary jet fighters and space rockets.

After many years of fabulous and futuristic designs and even excess, flashy tail fins were eventually deemed to be less than “futuristic” and were phased out production.

All of these photos are or will soon be available as high glossy metal prints at:

The images are also available in other printed formats. Please feel free to contact me any time for details. I would love to hear from you!
