Though after the most beautiful '56 Cadillac, I wasn't a fan of Cadillac styling after that year.  BUT, when comparing the '57 to the '59, the '57 WINS HANDS DOWN.

For me it's the 59.  The taillights on the fins are fantastic.

Never a fan of those huge fins on the 1959. In comparison the 1957 looks quite elegant.

I voted for the 57 not noticing that it is the Biarritz and I hated the rear end on these.

The '57 looks a bit stubby compared to the lower, longer, wider '59, so my pick is the '59.

I voted 1957, but I too dislike the Biarritz tail. Standard tail for me 

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

Seriously! The 59 is the only Cadillac choice for me from anything in the 50s

The regular '57 Caddy is my favorite of that decade.  I prefer the single headlight and relatively conservative rear fin design.  I like the '57 Eldorado tail end much less but still very much prefer it to the ridiculously overdone '59 tail end.

Just as a side note; I recently received the '57 Stamp Cadillac Eldo and like the rear end design much more in 1:43 scale than 1:1.  Same goes for the GML '58 Eldo.
