Think Cadillac, think Elvis Presley, Al Capone, America’s classic heyday.

Eldorado, Coupe Deville, Fleetwood: the names of the classic cars beloved by enthusiasts, drivers and pop culture.

The Cadillac LaSalle Club of Victoria will be visiting Launceston’s own National Automobile Museum of Tasmania on Sunday, coinciding with the opening of the museum’s brand new display of classic American cars.

The Detroit to Daytona American Automobiles collection showcases some of the most spectacular cars in Australia.

“I think this is the most sensational display we’ve had,” museum manager Phil Costello said. 

Legend has it that one of the cars on display in the museum, a red 1936 Auburn 852 Phaeton, may have been owned by Sir Donald Bradman, after it was used his road safety videos in the late 1930s.

Joining the museum’s display, the Cadillac Club will display 22 rare and original vehicles in the museum car park from 9.30am to 1pm on Sunday.
