The Cadillac story is more than the story of a car company. It is, in many ways, the story of the American automobile industry itself—which, as much as any industry, drove America’s growth in the twentieth century and defined who we are as a people. For generations of Americans, Cadillac epitomized expansive prosperity. This illustrated history of Cadillac presents all the triumphs and failures of the marque’s last sixty years; from the good times, through the disastrous 1980s, and up to the current reconstitution of the brand.

“This book should be in your library…the book to satisfy your general interest and even create a steady interest by the time you finish reading”—SAH Journal “Fascinating…Readers will enjoy [Young’s] technical, thorough, and yet approachable writing style, as they follow this important American engine through its life, and come to understand its enduing legacy for all multi-level GM engines.”—Hemmings Classic Car. Cadillac has had a long history in the automotive marketplace as General Motors’ luxury car division. During the 1980s, Cadillac's management wanted to reestablish the brand as a leader in sophistication, innovation, refinement and prestige. Engineers conceived a new dual-overhead cam, four-valve-per-cylinder V-8 engine—the Northstar. This power plant was the heart of Cadillac’s Northstar System, which included a greatly improved suspension and braking system. The division redesigned its entire line to incorporate these new technologies for the 1990s and beyond. The Northstar was the last engine designed and built by Cadillac before the 2005 establishment of GM Powertrain, which took over engine design for all GM divisions. This history of the Northstar V-8 and the cars it powered covers the first generation front-wheel drive Northstar, the second generation rear-wheel drive model, and the supercharged version, along with racing history and the most collectible Northstar-powered Cadillacs.

For eleven years prior to World War II, Cadillac defied the norms of practicality and produced an extravagant supercar, a 16-cylinder luxury automobile that could be tailored to the customer’s every want. Big, thirsty and lavish, it cemented Cadillac’s place in the top tier of motoring magnificence. Each of the cars has its own colorful and fascinating story to tell. Driven by a life-long love of the V-16 and an interest in the history of his own car, the author has assembled more than 65 of these tales, gleaned from interviews, books, periodicals and documents, into a liberally illustrated book. Each story is shaped by the people a particular car touched, and the events they lived through together. All are an important part of our automotive and cultural history.
