Cocoon : The car

The car

Looks like a 1962 Cadillac 60 Special 4-Door Hardtop Sedan:

Very pretty!

Not sure about the "Fleetwood" designation.

This was a tail-fin era car--part of the space-age motif of that time. It is out of place in 1985. I think it was there as a thematic foreshadowing of the spaceship element of the story--very clever, actually!

Re: The car

Agree!... and the car gets a nice reprise in the sequel.
