    1st Allante post

    Hello Everyone!

    I guess someone had to be first, and I will Volunteer. Being from the Volunteer State I guess its only natural that I start what I hope is the first of many to come.

    I have a "93" Cadillac Allante that is Triple Black with just a few modifications. She is mostly a garage queen as I only drive her when the weather is nice. Black cars and rain mean that you get to clean them more often. I don't like to drive her dirty, so I keep her under cover unless I get an urge for some power. Being a garage queen dosen't mean that I don't like a little challange from time to time. I have taken her to the track once, but hope to return in the spring. I have only run 1/8 mile, but did ok for completely stock. Best run of the night was 9.95 @76.3mph. I hope the Borla Mufflers will help some on ET's in the spring. I would like to try 1/4 mile track in Bristol, Tn this spring just to see if I am competative with other Nortstars times posted on the GMForum.

    I posted an older picture to let y'all see what see looks like. I hope to add the seven spoke Cadillac chrome rims soon, and some better tires. Thanks for looking and I hope you have a Great 2003.

    Don

    Howdy friend!!
    Nice to see the site getting more hits as the day goes by
    Just figured I'd welcome ya here. I know what you mean about black cars. I had 2 NC (non-Caddy) in black and spent at least 1/2 my weekend cleaning them. Now I'm asking for it again with my Fleetwood being black and that I'm going to paint her Mecerdes Black when I get all the parts for her. Again Welcome

    Hey! Where's that picture? I'd like to see.. Remember the Buick Reatta? My God.. That car probably would have been considered really nice if it weren't for the Allante! What a unique two seater car.. How did they handle? I've never had a ride in on...

    Looks like the file size is to large. Is there any way to increase the file size?

    Hey Don,

    What's the file size? I'm not sure what I want to set the file size to yet.. Currently, it's set at 102k.. If you'd like, I'll resize the image for you and post it up.. If it's 150k or so, I'll bring the file size up.. But if it's much higher, I'd rather edit the size in Adobe Photoshop for you...

    file size

    Hi Sal,

    The file size is about 103K, but some are much bigger. I tried to zip it, but it was still to large. I put a picture on the GMForum that should have been about the same size. I will try it again, and I will cross my fingers.

    It is still too big. You may want to increase the file size, or I could email it to you. I am sure posters will want to put up some pictures and I would love to see other members cars.

    Don

    I'll make it 200k for now.. Hopefully you can get most of your pics up.. Otherwise, just email me what you have and I'll reduce their size while maintaining their integrity.

    Don, let me know when you go to Bristol to run! I live in Blacksburg, only about two hours away (in Virginia). I'd like to come down and race when you go. Maybe we can get a few members from this forum to come down and have a good time!

    Jadcock,

    Yeah, I'd love to meet up in Bristol. I left you an invite on the GMForum under either kill stories or took the caddy to the track. I'm about 2-2.5 hours South of Bristol. We can check to see when the open in the Spring and try to set something up. I noticed that some other members are from VA, and maybe they can join us.

    I noticed on your web site that you have a power T on your front plate. How did that get there if you are a VT Man?

    The car used to be owned by my mom, and my younger brother used to go to UTK. That picture was taken back when mom owned it, at my folks' house in West Knoxville.

    Hello Jadcock,

    I live in Harriman, Tn about 25 miles west of your folks. I would bet that there is a VT tag on the front now. Looking forward to Bristol and seeing if we can surprise some folks with Caddy's at the starting line. Last check with the BIR web site did not list the spring schedule. I have some friends close by that I get to keep their ears open. I would hope that we can pick up some more interest on this site and the GMForum. Maybe we can get a good cross section of Cadillacs to run on the same night.

    Thanks for reducing the size of the pictures Sal. Here is a picture of my Triple Black "93" Allante.

    Oooooh!!! Nice!!!

    I can't wait to hear it at Bristol. I'd love to hear what Borla mufflers sound like on a Northstar. I've been considering a muffler replacement for sometime and because of past experience, I will only consider Borla mufflers. They are expensive, but every bit worth that price.

    Yeah, that car is too nice. Isn't it? It must sound awesome with Borlas.. Someone around here has an Eldorado with Flowmasters and it just doesn't sound right...

    The Borla's do sound good. I think the Corsa's sound great as well. Corsa's are real expensive and come as a package deal for close to a grand. I got into the Borla's for a lot less. If you want to hear what your Caddilac will sound like with the Corsa's try this link.

    The Borla's sound a bit deeper in tone.
