Design, film and television are looking to the past for inspiration for everything from cars to new television series. Sure, Mad Men has had a reasonable amount of success, but the cable networks are jumping on the retro bandwagon as well. Starz recently announced their new series, Magic City; this series takes viewers to Miami Beach in 1959 to witness the glitz, glamor, and the mob.
In order to help promote and hype up of the start of Magic City Starz is offering a series of giveaways designed to reflective of the show. Of course the most interesting and valuable item is what appears to be a 1958 Cadillac DeVille; what’s not to like about the beautiful land yacht that can be yours for simply filling out a few questions?
Yes, it is a sedan not the two door or a convertible that everyone raves over, but free beats cheap, right? It can’t hurt to spend a minute or two checking out the website and entering a contest especially when a gorgeous Caddy is up for grabs. According to the official rules of the Starz sweepstakes, the grand prize ’58 Caddy requires that the winner have a valid driver’s license, valid social security number (so that the IRS can get their due of the $56,000 Cadillac) and proof of insurance. Of course the ’58 will be delivered to the winner, but all of the parts and trim of the car is considered to be “as is”; from the picture on the website “as is” appears to be rather striking.
