    Sadly leaving the ranks of v1 owner

    As some of you know, I had a gorgeous Black Raven 2005 to which I made numerous appearance mods. About 2 weeks ago, I became aware of a CTS-V coupe at a dealership about 90 miles from me. The car is Thunder Gray, with every option, including Ebony/Saffron Recaros, auto, roof, polished wheels etc.

    Friday I broke down and drove to the dealership, gave them my 2005 and drove out with my V2 coupe (7,000 miles on it).

    I'll miss this group, but I do have a huge grin on my face...

    The car is identical to the Hennessey CTS-V coupe on Jay Leno's garage, except with 556 hp instead of 700. http://www.jaylenosgarage.com/at-the...adillac-cts-v/

    Damn. With all these auto V coupes, how am I going to find a manual in a few year when they've dropped like $30 grand?

    Here are a couple of pics from this morning. The original owner put the Cadillac emblems under the side vents; I kinda like it.
