bortz 1956 Cadillac Valkyrie

The 1956 Cadillac Valkyrie was one of the stars of the show at Amelia Island 2012.

The interesting thing is that when I got this car it came with a trophy that was awarded to the car at Madison Square Garden in 1955. Shortly after getting the car the trophy disappeared and I thought that somebody may have taken it. Recently I found it in a box that had been mis-labeled and I was so happy to find it again especially since the car went to Amelia Island in March 2012. The 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Valkyrie designed by Brooks Stevens with a Spohn body (same body company that made the Spohn body that was on the BMW Veritas that sold at the Lee Hartung sale).
