Re: Show us your Catera.
Nice looking Catera, but I'm confused. Is it a Sport? I see the wing but the wheels are wrong and the grille is chrome not "Satin". Not that it matters much. The Sport is more show than go. It's slightly lowered and sprung a little stiffer but beyond that and some satin trim it's the same as the base model. The 1999 Sport's suspension became the base set-up in 2000 so if yours is a base model with a wing she's at least a little sportier than the pre-facelift models.
I notice FL plates. Where does she winter? I bought mine in Tampa, fall of 2006. Found her on the WWW, flew down from Buffalo, bought her sight unseen, and drove her north 1400 miles. Took a detour along the Blue Ridge Pkwy and the Tail of the Dragon. Great trip.

Thanks Elvin, It is a 2000 base with a wing. I bought it from a long time used car dealer friend for a song....he had it sitting on his lot for about a year. Made me an offer that was hard to turn down, it hasn't disappointed me yet. It needs a little now and then but I have never had a Cadillac or European car that hasn't yet. Considering this is both.....that should say enough. It has all the options except the CD changer, I have that in my Grand Cherokee and don't miss it in the Catera. It spends the winter in Naples. It is rust free as it was a Cali car for most of it's life until landing in New England. Just ordered a new plate for it..."ZIG HEIL". I do think Ziggy made the Catera the red headed step child of the line, but of course GM has had that habit over the years.
