Throughout the The (New) Cadillac Database© you will run into seemingly mysterious abbreviations in bold type (usually in the last one or two lines of an entry).  These merely indicate
the source from which the information was extracted.  Abbreviations are used primarily in the "Advertisements" sections of the Database

Most of the information in the Database is drawn from books, magazines and club publications.  Sometimes the initials of a person are used; this indicates that the information came from that person or his/her collection and is believed to be reliable.

Here is an explanation of the various abbreviations you will encounter (a few of them still need to be completed).  If you happen to come across any that are not listed here, please drop me an e-mail for an explanation.  At the same time, I will make the necessary addition(s) or correction(s):
