    hey, this is kind of like a new fleetwood

    Execpet they dont call it that. But If I had to think of a soon to be counterpart in the current Caddie lineup, this would be it

    But it can't be a Fleetwood, it's a DeVille, the smaller brother of the Fleetwood. And it's FWD, something a Fleetwood can never be.

    A lot of people do not like the new deville body style. I would like it if it were named something else. It does not carry on the deville tradition. But that is a whole different topic. Anyways, I really like this extended version. It is sharp and at least more near the length a caddy is intended to be.

    True, it's nice to finally see a Caddy as large as they used to be. If the Fleetwood returns, I'm sure it'll carry on the theme of Art and Science, but I hope it doesn't just look like a bigger version of the DTS.

    That thing is an abomination, the "wedge look" should never be stretched there. It has the profile of a rat.

    Now, I love the standard length DTS, but something just isn't right about the stretch. IMO
