I had my 1st Cadillac delivered last week and have been enjoying it all week now. It's a lite platinum '04 CTS with ebony interior. It's replacing an aging '90 TBird Super Coupe Anniversary Edition that's been a dear car but the maintenance has become just too much. At 17 years old, in Bird years it's at least twice as old as me. With a sister car that's a bracket drag racer, one of them had to go. Now I just need a buyer for it while everything is working. I was surprised to find the CTS's 3.6L 4V engine is a bit quicker than the lightly mod'ed 3.8 supercharged. I can't wait to see what kind of 1/4 mi times it'll run but right now I'm just learning how to program everything to work. It's a quantum leap over the Bird and I just love the car. I'm really pleased to find that as well as comfortable, it's as nimble and quick as it is. I never thought I'd ever buy a dang Cadillac but here I am. I looked at a lot of different cars and the CTS had them all beat.
