    Talking Back in the Cat Forum

    Hey boys. I finally got myself a new car today. I'd bought an old '67 Delta 88 to cruse in over the summer but now that the nights are coolin down i started driving my dad's '01 sport that i convinced him to buy. But workin on a car for no pay is no fun when it's not your own car . But anyways the Delta is in my garage waiting for me co convert it's 425 2bbl into a 4bbl and wait for the snow months to pass. So the story goes on i went out to the car auctions with a day off school and i run across this 99 sport with a message on the windshield saying "BAD TIMING BELT, WILL NOT START." I decided to pop the hood and have a look for myself. The belt was shredded and go figure, the tension pulley was toasted. They DROVE the car through the lase and because it had no belt coolant was spraying out the bottom of the car. I figured i've done the pulley before and it was a quick 25min job so why not put a bid in ton it. I figured if it didn't do much over 2k i'd take it. I had always loved the 99 sports, even more than the facelifts (maybe i'm just weird?). to make a longer story short i ended up grabbing the car for dirt cheap and crossed my fingers all it needed was some brake pads, front rotors, a pulley and a belt. Got her runnin this mornin and she is a DREAM. No more problems, thanks god , and now all i need is to replace the brake light switch, cruse switch, and figure out why the trunk won't pop. She is black on black and i'll giver her a detailing soon and get up some pics. Plus it's got a 12 disc changer in the back, it's a jvc, but it works. I'll try not to turn this one into an F-150 compactor. The moral of the story: My dad's jealous and i love my car.

    I once owned a '65 Delta 88 with a factory-installed floor shifter. It was one of the coolest and nicest cars I ever owned. NEVER should have sold that car!!

    If you are saying you now own a 1999 Catera Sport, well, that's amazing. The '99 Catera Sports are the rarest of all Cadillac Cateras, very few ever having been manufactured. I believe they are collectible. Take really good care of that special automobile. It's a keeper.

    And of course we all want to see photos ASAP!!
