its the caddy rubbing off on me
The economics just make sense. I can save the money I'd be making in payments and put them towards mods on the V1. It's fun and rewarding.
In 5 years, I'll probably sell on, get a V2 and do the same.
I love my 05 V1, 2nd owner, since 34k miles Jan 2008. now 131k modded as things broke or went bad...had the same concerns on wanted to trade up. Paid it Off 3yrs early, Saved $9800 on interest payments.. No payments, Great compliments when fueling up..Pricele$$.

I bet you think this song is about ewe.
Are there clowns in your coffee?
Another thing to consider: the V1 is a rare vehicle, only about 7,000 made. The V2 is much more common. If there comes a time when modern Cadillacs are collectible, the V1 will be more desireable than the V2.
I think wiki says about 12k V1s not that that's many more...Originally Posted by repenttokyo
I wonder how many of them are still decent clean titled vehicle and not wrecked or otherwise? would be cool to know.
Probably more than you think. I'm guessing that there were more than a few guys like me who ran our muscle cars from the 60's into the ground when we were young. After getting married and raising kids and suffering through station wagons and mini vans saw the 2004 V as a prize to be taken care of. Sure, I put a Maggie on mine and drove it at the track a couple times, but the car is pristine.Originally Posted by izcain
We'll see which of the grandkids skips generations and loves cars like Pap does. He or she will have a bitchin' ride in 15 years.
Well said MotoX! I see new V2s and think man I really want a wagon! It is 556 horse wagon! Why not! But then I think about how mine is still in great shape and I will not ever run out of things to do to it! All that being said I still might get me a wagon someday when I get the grandkids!
