    Cadillac parade in VT

    Hey all, just saw this and thought to post if anyone was interested in attending. I was thinking about driving up. Sounds like a cool event to see some different Cadillacs. A guy I met at Carlisle went to an all Cadillac show at the Hershey car mueum and sent me some pics of old school cars. I can appreciate the heritage of when Cadillac ruled the road.

    Re: Cadillac parade in VT

    I had been thinking of getting a drive up the day before. Meet on I-91 in Greenfield, MA and head west on Rte 2 and drive VT-100 from the MA border to Canada. Head back south and get a place for the night and then do the parade the next day.

    But the summer has flown by and I never really tried to get it going...

    Re: Cadillac parade in VT

    With work I can only swing the single day off. I'm leaning more and more towards doing this. I've always wanted to visit VT in the summer time. I contacted to woman in charge and she said they are about 10 short of the record right now. They have a cruise and other activities planned for the participants that day. Jim I'm sure if you go that'll attract 10 peope atleast!

    Re: Cadillac parade in VT

    Well the record was broken. New Guiness Wolrd Record of 298 Cadillacs in a parade. Was really neat to be a part of. All makes and models from 1905, 1909 to 2011. I was the only V1. 2 STS-Vs, and SLR-V and a few coupes sedans and a wagon. I was wearing my V cadillacowners.com t shirt from a few years back. Quite a few people commented on it and will hopefully join up.

    During our Indy V meet I suggested to the group that we hit the parking lot to have a clunk contest. I dominate at clunking my V the loudest.

    Re: Cadillac parade in VT

    I was thinking about that! Did suffer from clutch annoyance a few times. Better then over heating like a few of the older cars.
