    Spotted!

    I've seen this done on another forum I frequent, one for Harley Davidson motorcycles. When you are out in your V and you spot another CTS-V, post up where you saw it, and a description.

    I'll start.

    Monday, November 18th, 2013. Around 4:00 pm, I spotted a CTS-V Wagon driving southbound on Eastern, near Horizon Ridge in Henderson, NV. White, polished wheels, didn't see the calipers. Had a personalized Nevada plate related to baseball (don't want to post the actual plate if the owner has privacy concerns). I waved as he passed, but I was turning into a gas station, so I didn't see if the driver waived back, or not.

    From time to time you will get someone that will also be on the board and you'll get a reply, "That was me heading to into Seven Hills", or "I was on my way home from work" or, "That was my 17 year old son, who took the car without asking".

    As rare as these cars are, we are bound to get a few "Spots".

    Re: Spotted!

    I've never seen a V2 in the wild around here. When I had a V1 I saw a few of them; still do. You've got a lot better chance though. Even if the locals didn't have many Hertz seems to have them every time I'm there.

    Re: Spotted!

    Great idea for a thread!

    Saw a black (not sure which) V2 sedan who just made the turn on 366 in New Kensington (PA). What I noticed over the barrier was a chromed B-pillar.

    I've also seen a white V coupe with black wheels a few times on Tarentum Bridge Road. I wasn't close enough to tell the calipers but it looks great with that combo.

    Actually it has been done on the V1 forum and then on the V2 forum - a couple times > http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...tion-only.html - but eventually the thread gets lost in the shuffle.

    I was right alongside a red '14 vagon just like mine yesterday on 440 here in Raleigh, NC. The guy in the other vagon waved back too. Turns out I'm an idiot (not a stretch since I'm an Aggie) as the "identical" vagon was my reflection in the glass company truck carrying a huge mirror on the side rack.
    taken, FLTRI, MEDISIN and 3 others like this.

    Just moved here and not sure this is the same Henderson that is south Las Vegas. But I saw a black diamond coupe/dirty black raven coupe (couldn't tell it was at night). Side by side at a red light and you whimped out one me.

    I have a Black Raven wagon, not a coupe.
    It's never dirty.
    I don't wimp out.

    Saw a white V with some aftermarket wheels, looked like Vossens. It was on Va Beach Blvd in Virginia Beach VA.

    Might be the same guy who lives a few blocks from me. One of only a few I've seen in Va Beach.

    I'm in!
    I'm always going to cars and coffee. I'm usually the only V there. Occasionally I see a black diamond coupe.

    Last time I was there I had to listen to a proud new red C7 owner justify $15, 000 over sticker because they were so hard to get. I said really. .. a mass produced vehicle hard to get or you were just inpatient. I was with my dad who is in a wheel chair. On the way across the parking lot to get a coffee. We past a blue one. :OMG! Not so hard to get I guess.
