1947 - 1952 Cadillac Sombreros
1949-1952 Cadillac wheelcovers were nicknamed "Sombreros" because they had a definite hat that resembled a Sombrero. This style of cap became so popular in the early 1950s that inexpensive accessory knock-offs with modified Cadillac crests were produced and marketed under names like Calnevar Deluxe Full Wheel Covers and Hollywood Wheel Discs. The Sombrero label has incorrectly been attached to later Cadillac hubcaps in magazine articles.
