: Should have done this sooner

Hello to all. I guess I should have introduced myself before I went poking my nose into forums.

My handle is Rolex. I'm a proud Arkansas boy (born and raised). I am a late 20's professional who recently finished grad school. My graduation gift to myself was a 2003 Cadillac Escallade. I found this site surfing around to gather more info on the escallade before I bought it. My new ride has a red exterior with chrome wheels and the gold pkg. It's an AWD model...which will come in handy this winter. Two days after driving off of the lot I got the front windows tinted for the summer. My wife looks forward to having the dvd player on long trips.

My parents are old Cadillac owners...currently driving a fine 2001 silver STS. I guess you could say they turned me onto the idea of driving a Cadi. I test drove lots of different, and very nice vehicles, but once I drove the escallade my decision was made.

I am a car nut (especially Cadi). I love everything about cars. I hope I can learn some factoids from this community of Cadillac nuts, and in return maybe I have some info that might prove to be useful to one of you.

I've read some of your posts, and I can say with confidence that you are a welcome addition, Rolex. But be careful, this can be addictive.

Congrats on your recent graduation and "gift!"

Where in AR are you? I'm a little ways across the river from you.

I live in Rogers (Northwest) Arkansas. I do have some very good friends in Memphis. My inlaws also live in Memphis (so I try not to visit very much..haha). Oh, I agree with the part about being addictive!

My in-laws are in Heber and Jonesboro. I try not to visit them very much, either, ( :drinker ) and they've already told me they're not coming back to my house any time soon! :histeric:

But that's another story for another time. :welcome:

Rolex, did your Escalade come from Parker Cadillac? or did you get it from out of state?

I purchased my escallade from Superior Cadillac in Fayetteville, AR. The dealership is on N. College St. I'd post a url but I don't believe they have one.

Welcome Rolex,

I wear a Seiko and that is expensive enough watch for me. I certainly want an Escalade for one of my graduation gifts!
