What would be the the automotive equivalent of a leg man? I’m guessing it’s a wheel-and-tire guy. But whether or not your type is brunettes or redheads, you have to admit it’s always fun to admire the things we love from a new perspective.
It’s a maxim, a song title, and something your friends might have tried to tell you before a blind date: It’s what’s inside that counts. For a car dealer trying to maneuver a would-be car buyer into a test drive, it’s all about the cabin experience.
Question: Is a Buick LeSabre a luxury car? What about a LeSabre Coupe, which seems a little more indulgent than the sedan? For this collection of luxury vehicle ads, we’ve dipped a little low on the price scale by including Mercurys and Oldsmobiles, as well as the aforementioned Buick. Even if they’re not true luxury rides, it’s easy enough to argue that these particular cars are at least a cut above the mainstream fray.

Note: The following story was excerpted from the June 2019 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.
Cadillac’s first high-performance “V” series offering was the 2004 CTS-V. The latest member of this tasty lineup of future collectibles is the full-size CT6-V sedan. It was announced in March 2018 at the New York Auto Show as the CT6 V-Sport, and the “Sport” suffix indicated it wasn’t considered a full-fledged V-series model. By September 2018, the company reconsidered and said the production car would be the 2019 CT6-V.
