Lynne and Andrew Collie's 1955 Cadillac Eldorado
The winner of the second heat of the Classic American Car of the Year competition was this gorgeous 1955 Cadillac Eldorado belonging to Lynne and Andrew Collie. The Caddy was imported from American Dream Machines in Iowa and had undergone restoration and a colour change from black (with a black and silver interior) sometime prior to 2005.
Formerly part of the Charlie Thomas Collection, it had a starring role in the 2005 Johnny Cash biopic ‘Walk the Line’ where it’s driven by Sam Philips (as opposed to being the car from the song ‘One piece at a time’,) so it comes with some great celebrity history, apart from being an all-round glamour puss of a motor. Lynne and Andrew have christened the car ‘Buttercup’ and are not afraid of using it on roadtrips all over!
