Cadillac Coupe de Ville

I took this photograph at the Northern Classic Car Show at G-Mex, Manchester, in August 1994.
It's a 1959 Cadillac Coupe de Ville which was on the trade stand of James Barry Clark. The show's brochure says this about the car:

'The green and white 1959 has been restored by myself. I purchased it from a scrapyard in South Carolina in 1991 and began the work in 1992. The 1959 Cadillac has the largest tail fins of any American car and is considered to be the ultimate in fins  and chrome of that period. It is powered by a V8 engine, 3 speed auto box, power windows, power seats. Some models had cruise control side lights that double as spot lights as fitted to this particular car.'
