Stylish Fins

A car show and auction in Palm Springs was a retro look at car styles. Fins were the thing to make a statement or to differentiate one model from another. Fortunately, the fin craze came and went.

From a 1954 Cadillac to the 1960 Chevrolet with gull wings to the whale tail of the 1960 Plymouth.


  1. The Caddy tail light reminded me of my old gas pumping days. The gasoline cap was located under the left tail light... you pushed that button in the center and it the whole assembly would swing up and out of the way.

  2. Those were the days. Could also fill the tank for less than the price of gallon today.
