That's a highly-polished 1946 Cadillac, as advertised by it's license plate.
SWMBO told me later it was one of the first generation of new cars built in peacetime after World War Two. The rear compartment had a bench seat plus a jump seat facing it. Lots of leg room.
A beautiful car with that big V Cadillac emblem front and rear.
And, yes, that is the ghostly image of your correspondent behind the V.
But the emblem more favored by young (and old) men rides at the front of the hood.
The flying goddess. Beautiful bit of streamlining.
And speaking of beautiful, here's today's gratuitous critter picture.
