: New guy intro

11-25-09, 10:21 AM
hello everyone!

Im a new cadi owner. My girlfriend gave me her 97 Seville. It has just over 90,000 on it and it runs great! Browsing this forum has me really scared of the head gasket issue :ill: but for the price I guess it's worth the risk

Anyway I love cars. I also have a 68 VW fastback that Im currently restoring.

I also coach youth club basketball, hence the name. I love kids and the game, and take pride in making my players better people as well as better basketball players by teaching teamwork and integrity.

You guys have a pretty cool forum with allot of helpfull people. I hope I get to know my Cadilac as well as I know VW's so that one day I can provide some input.

Welcome to the forum! Don't fret over the HG issue, not much you can do about it until it happens other than routine maint, drive it and enjoy it, and just be prepared for an eventual big overhaul or early retirement.

Most have not experienced a head gasket failure, let's hope you and I are among the majority Northstar owners who do not have an HG failure. Welcome to the Forum. I hope you enjoy your 4th series Svelle as much as I enjoy mine!

My girlfriend gave me her 97 Seville. What did you do to her man? Must have pissed her off real bad for her to dump an endless money pit like this on you. J/K :eek::thumbsup:
