The first Kincardine Cruise Night of the summer will be held Friday, June 27, from 6-9 p.m., in downtown Kincardine.

Spectators will not only enjoy the many beautiful vintage and unique vehicles at the show, but Steve Plunkett of London is bringing a very special car that night.

It's a 1949 prototype Cadillac Coupe de Ville. The car was at the first New York Waldorf Astoria Motorama Show as a prototype dream car - the manufacturing company added all the extra features to dream cars to create interest and sell cars.

The 1949 Cadillac Coupe De Ville was the first with power vent windows, first with a one-piece curved windshield, first with wheel-well trim, and first with a two-way telephone (short-wave).

Plunkett's vehicle was found in a Connecticut barn and he had it restored in 2013. The Cadillac Coupe de Ville was the most popular car in all of North America in 1949 and is the oldest surviving dream car known to exist.
