Can't believe they didn't put the 1916 Type 53 Caddy in the Fab Five list, as this was the first ever car to have utillise what is still almost the conventional control layout of modern cars, namely a three pedal layout with clutch and accelerator pedal either side of the brake pedal, and a key operated ignition system.

I don't necessarily agree with their list a 100% but either way glad to see an american company getting some positive publicity

I can't believe the seriies 90 with V16 (1938-1940) wasn't included. To me, that's the car that put them with the heavy-hitters of the age (Duesenberg, Mercedes-Benz, Rolls-Royce).
