    Are the Corsa's squarish out the back? Or round? I'll have to take a listen to that link later on.

    Hi Sal,

    I'm not real sure. Look at the site, and they may have both. Personally I like the stock tips that are on the newer Cadillacs.

    They're round and they look good on that STS. And I like the stock tailpipes on the new Caddy's as well.. Nothing wrong with them at all...

    Don,

    How do you like the Allante? I had a white diamond 93 but it just wasn't for me. If I could have afforded a second Cadillac as a daily driver, it would have been OK. It just didn't seem as comfortable on long trips but it was a beautiful car. It even had the hardtop option. Does yours? I wish I still had it. . .

    Hi Max,

    I love it, and think that it is very comfortable. We only took it on one long trip, and my wife slept most of the way. The seats will adjust to about any position that you want. Mine is more or less a garage queen. I will drive it about 800 miles this week on a business trip and I am looking forward to it.

    Mine did not have the hardtop, but I did buy a Phase one top for it and had it modified to fit. The top still needs just a bit of tweeking to make it right. There is a small gap where the faux vent window on pre 93 Allantes was. I had to dye the headliner black since it was red, and had the exterior painted to match. It looks good, and I have no regrets getting it. Original hardtops for "93" Allantes are bringing $3,000-$6,000 on Ebay and in private sales. I have about $1,100 in mine with purchase, shipping, paint,modification, and leathermagic dye.

    What I like best about it is that it is rare, and performs like a sports car. There are millions of Corvettes, but only 15,000 - 20,000 Allantes produced ever. I drove lots of muscle cars in my youth, and the Allante would run with them. Its not a 442 or a GTO, but is pretty quick for a Cadillac. I really like the STS and wouldn't mind having one, but my wife would like to have a Benz Ragtop. I guess I will have to try to make her happy. I will not sell my Allante for a Benz, but will let her have one later just to keep the peace. "

    If Momma ain't happy nobody's happy, if daddy ain't happy, nobody cares."

    Uhh. Benz.. They used to be nice.. A couple of my friends have been very unsatisfied with the way their new Mercedes' have been running.. Many problems.. Check into things before you get it.. They both had Cadillacs beforehand - and complained a lot - but never complained as much as with the Mercedes.. The cars are always being fixed.. They're not the same as they used to be...
