1942 Cadillac owned and restyled by Rudy Makela. Called the "Wow" Cadillac, Rudy's custom was built on a 1942 Cadillac chassis. The body on the car was shaped by the Indianapolis Power Hammer Works Inc, and features a pull apart hood for access to the engine. All outside lights and license plates were fully recessed and lucite covered. The car was completed in 1942, and twenty spare-time months were required to complete the job.[1]

In 2015 the car was owned by Stephen P. Lisak.
