There will be cars from out of state attending the event along with a wide variety of vendors showcasing their new products.

There will be a variety of Cadillac activities during this event. We will have a dyno onsite conducting an ALL CADILLAC DYNO SHOOTOUT! This is the first of its kind and we will have a special surprise for the winner of this event. Whoever’s Cadillac can make the most power on the dyno, they will get a featured story in Modified Luxury & Exotics Magazine, pictures, detailed story, website feature, etc. Please use the provided form to register for this activity.

We will have an ALL CADILLAC RUN GROUP for the event. This is an opportunity for Cadillac Owners to take their vehicles on a professionally prepped racetrack and enjoy some spirited driving on the Infield Road Course at California Speedway. We will have driving instructors on hand to assist any of those that are interested in procuring their assistance. In addition to the infield racing experience, we will also have an AUTOCROSS TRACK setup to allow you to battle against the clock and challenge your driving skills.

The above link is still horked, guys.


Sounds like fun and I plan to be there; just need to work the logistics and timing of driving my V down from San Francisco, sprucing it up, and later driving it back... without getting fired for time away from work, LOL.

Note: I assume you've put posts about this meet into the car forums here. I've never been in the vendor forums before; only came here because I got an email about this meet from Reed.

The problem here (as I see it) is that this big function appears to be catering to the CTS and the "V" Series of Cadillacs, and the rest are overlooked. It seems to shun those who wish to keep their cars bone-stock, because it is offering a massive showcase to the aftermarket and to the "tuners". But how about those with RWD Fleetwoods, and Broughams, and Sevilles, and Eldorados, and those with Coupe & Sedan deVilles and those with FWD Fleetwoods as well as FWD Sixty Specials, and how about the Allantes? The Cateras? The SRX ? See what I mean?
Regardless, I am in N.J. and it's in Calif. so.....I would not be going anyhow. But, I think anyone with any of the above mentioned cars from the 80s, 90,s and newer (or older) are going to feel like a miniture poodle at a Great Dane show.
I sorta liked Cadillac's role as a luxury car more than I like it's new role as a Performance Car.
Shoe on wrong foot feeling. Just my .02 cents.

Please don't stress that Cadillac has become a performance car company.
A very small percentage of Cadillacs are the V series models.
The vast majority are simple luxury models.

Although I'm only into cadillac for the perfomance products I would personally love to see all the other cadillac models represented.
I would feel very bad if the non-V cadilac owners felt unwelcome.
I personally want to see as many cadillacs (of any flavor) at the event as possible. :welcome:

If anything, be glad the Cadillac line is so diverse.
That only makes the brand stronger in a world sense. :cool2:

Hello,
Thank you for your response. However I would like to officially state that this event caters to CADILLAC's, period. If it has a Cadillac emblem on it we want it at the show. We have been working with the Cadillac LaSalle club in getting all of the participation we can out of that group. Our focus is bringing ALL CADILLAC's together for this event. Given that the location of the event is at a racectrack, obviously the marketing is geared a little more towards what could be done at a racetrack (i.e. using our surroundings as best we could and having interactive activities).

Besides, a true Cadillac enthusiast can appreciate a Cadillac for what it was then, what it is today, and what it will be tomorrow. I would certainly think people would have a great appreciation for what helped build the Cadillac brand over the last 106 years. We hope to showcase some of that at the Cadillac Performance Experience.

Again, thank you for your feedback.

Thank you,

Dr. Design

Great idea.

If an event like this proves successful and ongoing, it will be very good for the Cadillac brand.

Will there be others closer to where most owners live, though?

WOOHOO! Coming from the heavy modding of BMW and Mercedes and currently still modding Mercedes, this is exciting! I currently attend a lot of the SoCal local Mercedes Benz shows and meets and help out where needed. I'm a member at MBWorld.org and myMBonline.com among others and excited to see Cadillac finally doing something!

My Escalade is fully loaded but stock and would like to see what more is out there specifically for my SUV.

This being said, can't wait for this show and see you guys there!

05-14-08, 09:32 PM
I can relate to Sandys post about the show and his concerns about it not showcasing "All" models of Cadillacs or at least not from the advertisement of the event would indicate, however I "don't" agree with him on the "Performance" aspect of it, "personally" I think Cadillac should be able to carry the banner of "both" flags, Performanc "and" Luxury!!! Maybe next year you guys can set something up over on the "East Coast" for those of us on this side of the US that are Cadillac lovers but don't have the means or the finances to make it out to Cali in time for this years event, thanks!!!

Depending on how well this year's event turns out - we'll all know about future shows. If all goes well, we'll likely see shows in at least Texas and Florida (I think). Hopefully word gets out enough about this event that a "next year" can happen...

Personally, I think Cadillac should have the same following as BMW does - and this can help make that happen. I'm going to do my best to make it to the show myself.. I won't be easy, though..

OK.. the flyer is mostly performance oriented... toward the bottom is something about "Vintage Vehicle display"

I'm a fan of both...

I drive your run of the mill STS v8, but also own a '76 Eldorado Convertible

I think it would be a lot more fun to show up in the Eldorado...

but would I be the only one there without a 400+ hp car?

Hello,
If you can, bring both of them! As mentioned before we have been working with the Cadillac LaSalle club in bringing out a lot of the classic Cadillac's to help bridge the gap. We are also designing a new flyer that isn't so performance oriented.

There have been a variety of vehicles that have already RSVP'd. You would certainly not be alone when it comes to the classics as we will have a really nice mix of Cadillac's scheduled to attend.

Please let us know if there are any questions.
Thank you,

That's cool...

It seems like with 100 years of history both the luxury standard past and current world class performance should be celebrated...

I've never been to a BMW event but I just bet they talk up their comparatively short automotive history

Let's see.... Sunny California... which car to bring?

I'll be there with the Eldorado :cool2:

It is yet to be known if it will be the actual sub 8 minute 'Ring V but we look forward to having them at the event. There will be some very cool new opportunities at the event. We look forward to seeing everyone there.

Woo Hoo,

This should be fun. Just a word of advice for those of you that have never been to AAA Calif motor speedway it gets HOT! in the Summer. Make sure you stay hydrated. I can't tell which configuration they are going to run but it looks like they are not using turn 1 into the infield? That is the configuration when we run our motorcycles on when we are out there. Either way the track is a blast to use and lots of run off. Now if I can just get the V up to 170mph like my bike can and dive down off of the banking into the infield. :rolleyes:

As the event quickly approaches us we thought we would share with everyone the event layout & map. Please let us know if there are any questions. An event schedule will follow shortly.

If you havent registered yet, please do so as we need an accurate headcount. This will help Cadillac justify their involvement in a program like this.

If you bring the Eldo you'll be sorry you don't have the V, the infield is a blast. If you bring the V you'll be sorry you don't have the Eldo since there will be so many 400HP caddy's there that you would be the only land yacht.

I can't bring my '73 Eldo convertible since I sold it in February.

I can't bring my V since this event is on Father's day weekend and I will be spending that weekend with my Dad and my kids. Seriously, planning a "Man" event on Father's day weekend... Yeah, I'm just gonna ditch the family...

For starters we would like to thank everyone that attended & supported the show. We hope Cadillac was able to see the passion that Cadillac owners have for the brand and the vehicles. The event overall was very good! Not everyone showed up, but for the people that were there they had a great time! Andy P. was driving the wheels off that 09 CTS-V (120mph through the switch backs was pretty harry!). I personally had a chance to take a ride in the 09 CTSV and it was pretty amazing! Cadillac did a great job. Cadillac surprised us and brought the actual CTSV that ran on the Nurburgring!!! :D Lots of cool vendors, great people, good weather, lots of media coverage (i.e. Auto Week, Motor Trend, Automotive News, Modified L&E, Edmunds, DUB Magazine, and Rides). Hopefully they will help spread the word about the Cadillac Community...

Here are a few images from the event.

Thank you for posting pictures! I would have loved to had been there - but I just couldn't warm my wife up to taking another trip to California (we were just there a month or so ago). I hope there's a "next time"..

Hello all!

I'm the guy with the mohawk in that set of pictures! Sweet I got captured! Great driving out there, that was certainly the highlight of my day, watching a bunch of huge, loud CTS-V's go at it is a sight to behold. Anyway, here's a collection of my best from that event, hope you enjoy (and I hope you don't have 56k!).
