  • Eldorado (Cadillac) is the representation of American Dream.

    July 15, 2007

  •          Gaily bedight,

             A gallant knight,

         In sunshine and in shadow,

             Had journeyed long,

             Singing a song,

         In search of Eldorado.

             But he grew old —

             This knight so bold —

         And o'er his heart a shadow

             Fell, as he found

             No spot of ground

         That looked like Eldorado.

             And, as his strength

             Failed him at length,

         He met a pilgrim shadow —

             'Shadow,' said he,

             'Where can it be —

         This land of Eldorado?'

             'Over the Mountains

             Of the Moon,

         Down the Valley of the Shadow,

             Ride, boldly ride,'

             The shade replied, —

         'If you seek for Eldorado!'

    – Edgar Allan Poe, "Eldorado" (1849)
