start from thebeginning

First staged in 1901, the Chicago Auto Show is the largest auto show in North America and has been held more times than any other auto exposition on the continent. This year marks the 110th edition of the Chicago Auto Show.

    At the Cadillac exhibit during the 1960 Chicago Auto Show, a small crowd stands behind the railed-off display for the experimental two-passenger Cadillac Cyclone. A male presenter points to the 325 horsepower V-8 engine under the raised hood, and the black projectile extensions on the front fenders contained radar systems. While GM never used the Cyclone nameplate on production models, the Mercury division of Ford Motor Co. did, first on the high-performance Mercury Comet compact cars for 1964.
