I have no idea why the plate would read earlier, it's the 1959 Cadillac Cyclone Motorama Dream car.



My dad probably saw this in person at the '59 Motorama in San Francisco. I can't believe I never heard about any of these shows from him having just gotten into the GM Motorama stuff a few years ago, long after his death. But I find it very hard to believe that he wouldn't have gone to these shows as he was a Buick Salesman and we went to lots of shows over the years together, he was into it, I have to believe he went to them.

Old guy here. Didn't know anyone had a 100,000 warranty!. Chrysler was the first to have a warranty longer than 3/36. I believe they went to 7/70. Boy did that PO Ford and GM!! Chrysler did it to boost sales. When I first started working dealerships, warranties were 12/12. Hipo Fords wer 90 days. Period!

Wasn't it Mitsubishi who tried to boost sales by advertising a 100,000 mile warranty? It got a little silly with some doing a "bumper-to-bumper" warranty for a humongous time period while others were powertrain only.

I seem to remember seeing an ad from the past few weeks for KIA having a 100,000 mile warranty

Well then. We know it could not have been a British Motor Corp product as their stuff (the that era) was incapable of supporting a 100,000 millimeter warranty.
