    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    If you want you could adopt me... Lol. I don't think I would ever sell me V to get another V. I can do enough stuff to this thing to make me happy performance wise. And I'm pretty sure there isn't a 400hp car that is this price.

    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!
