    I agree with Lord Cadillac.

    [QUOTE] Right again, my friend... We (us old fashioned Caddy people) are a dying breed.

    I want soft, make that very soft ride and I want soft, make that very soft seats. I don't want this Euro hard ride with the park bech hard seats. This is my land yacht and that's the way I want it. My 67 Deville is soft and so quiet that my Dad got out of it one day and when we got in his at that time new 1990 Lincoln Town Car (Signature Series) he thought something was wrong with it and that car was quiet but my Deville had less road noise.
    Give me soft, big and heavy. If I want to go fast I drive my Buick Turbo or GS. Actually the GS is soft riding by todays standards. My 95 Fleetwood could be my last newer car. Our 04 DHS is okay but I can't develop and attachment for the car like I want to, it is just too generic. My wife had her way she would drive the 67 Deville. I can't get her out of my 95 Fleetwood if she is not here, it is not here.

    It's kinda scary that one can mention how badly a Lexus LS460 stops from 60 miles per hour but it takes the DTS 9 feet more and even 14 feet more than a Toyota Avalon...

    It's kind of scary to me that the administrator here seems to praise everything none Caddy. Oscillating vents, now there is a reason to by an import if I ever heard one. The 8 speed auto is good as long as it doesn't add too much weight, but is already a dinosaur as GM is almost ready to release a CVT capable of handling up to 550 Ft Lbs of torque, but is roughly the size of an old t-400 but weighs less. Toyota has had record recalls three straight years now, Lexus isn't imune to the 'build more in a hurry so we can be number one syndrome'.

    Wow! Some of you guys sound more and more stupid as time goes on here. It's amazing that Sal can actually like something other than Cadillac. And here I thought Cadillac was the only car company on earth that can make a decent car. Geez......what was I thinking!

    Really! Right, Randy. I'm what you call an "unbiased Cadillac enthusiast". I don't simply love Cadillac because I'm supposed to or because the people I grew up with loved Cadillacs. You keep playing "follow the leader" while I come up with my own opinions from my own time spent on research.

    Really! Right, Randy.
    Jeez what took you so long? I had to almost post a pic.
    Good thing I emailed somebody and told them so you could figure it out.
    Well. I'm going to check in again in a few months, I'll try to make it harder next time.

    That was stupid...insulting the founder of our club by questioning his Cadillac loyalty. I can see where you're coming from Sal, I love Cadillacs too, but that doesn't mean we have to hate or ignore every other type of car out there too. I consider us pretty open minded, as I do LUV~Caddys, but I'm open to other cars out there too. Heck, my next car's gonna be a Buick! I may not always own Cadillacs, but I still love the brand and nameplate!
    "They call Alabama the Crimson Tide, call me Deacon Blues."

    Current:
    1992 Lincoln Town Car Cartier Edition (5/14- ?)
    2014 Honda Accord LX MTX Sedan (1/14 -?)

    Past:
    1995 Buick Roadmaster Limited (4/04-12/04)
    1992 Cadillac Sedan deVille (12/04-9/07)
    1999 Mercedes Benz S320 (8/07-7/09)
    2000 Buick Regal GS (7/09-4/12)
    2003 Mercury Marauder (4/12-10/13)
    1991 Buick LeSabre Custom Sedan (9/12-6/13)
    2013 Honda Accord LX Sedan (6/13-1/14)

    What up Sal. I opened an invitation to Caddy owners in the SE forum.

    As for the LS, it is magnificent, floored me. The first LS I can see myself in, the styling before did nothing for me.

    I do also agree with some of the statements that not every car needs to ride like a 911. I think the magazine whoring does this, they continue to just push and love sporty cars and think non sporty cars are crap. This thinking has moved from Europe to our magazines even more.

    Rarely has there been a comparison where they ARE NOT looking for the sportiest ride.

    You're right. Sporty vehicles are nice, but there is a BIG place in my heart of the old Fleetwood Talisman and Lincoln Continental Town Car.. Those handled like ass.

    Thank you for the link! Not sure where it is, but.. Maybe we should have a Lexus/Cadillac meet in Orlando or something...
