    First ride in the V = Dad's shocking sailor mouth

    So I picked up my 70-something year old father at the airport today, in the V. He's never ridden in it, and never seen it. My car is only a few months old and it's the first time he's visited. He's a car guy and has owned many fast cars in his life.

    Let's cut to the chase here...after a few full throttle blasts from 2nd gear through 4th down the freeway and from stoplights, I could feel my cheeks going red, my forehead getting sweaty, and my pulse quickening as my father spewed curse words and expletives that would make a sailor blush. As the V pushed him harder into the seat, he would grab the door handle as his knuckles went white, while he dropped expletive combos I didn't know existed. And not in a bad way, but more on a "Jesus f**king Christ, OMFG holy s**t" kind of way.

    I admit it, I was shocked and a bit embarrassed but at the same time a little bit proud. Proud that this car is so absurdly fast that it would reduce a kind, wise, mature man to cursing like the demon in The Exorcist...and proud that my own father could drop the F bomb so many times between stoplights.

    Reason #538 to own a CTS-V: free entertainment. I saw a different side of my Dad today. Thank you V.

    Had a very similar experience with my C5 driving father back around the holidays. Although, let me be honest, I too drop a few combo f-bombs from time-to-time as I work on pointing the car straight after a 1-2 shift :-)

    Yea, I took my much older brother (16 years my Sr. and well over 60) on a ride a few months ago. He is very conservative with his vehicles now but did he some serious street/drag racing when he was in his 20's . He always trashes modern muscle cars and says they can't hold a candle to his old '56 Chevy or '67 Camaro. He squealed like a little girl after a few 160 mph sprints in the V. Cracked me up.

    Quality time with your Dad. Great stuff.

    I lost my Dad in January 2011. But he had a chance to ride in my 09 sedan and my 11 coupe. He always remarked about how they sounded, and a couple of times he would tell me "I heard you drive by last night". The sound was unmistakable to him, sedan or coupe.

    I took him with me to pick up the sedan because he once told me that his dad, my grandfather, had always wanted a Cadiilac, and mine would be our family's first. It was really cool to walk around the dealership with him and finally get my car.

    Ha haa! These cars always leave an impression on people of all ages. It's good that younger folks are buying them, too.

    Awesome post. I'll be taking my V in a few weeks when I visit my Dad as well, who hasn't seen it. I can't wait to share the experience with him. This is just part of being a good son, you know.

    Same as my father told me when I asked to drive his new Z06. "Sure son, you can drive it...when I'm dead!" then chuckled away. Love ya pops!
