Back seat of a Caddy. And pretty ladies! Dagmars!
OH MY GOD Mike, damn that is so friggin awesome! I could answer it easily too as I am a Motorama nut and have some literature and trinkets from them. What blows me away is my dad was selling Oldsmobiles and Buicks during those Motorama years and I never heard of him going. I didn't even know they existed until a girlfriend in highschool gave me a token/keychain from the 1956 Motorama and have been intrigued with the Motoramas ever since. It kills me that I missed seeing the cars from them at Pebble Beach a few years ago.
