Pretty fun, I'd recommend going if it comes to a city near you. They have new model Cadillac's out for you to test and it's not dealership based so they're is no selling or anything. Its put on by gm and kind of like a small version of auto-show in motion if you remember that. It was in a shopping center and the test drive went about 2 miles around in a circle on actual city streets. They had the SRX, SRX turbo, Escalade Hybrid and CTS sport wagon out to drive along with the ML Mercedes, Lexus suv and bmw 535i wagon to compare. They have cadillac employee's ride along with you and talk about the cars. I drove the CTS, Srx, Escalade and BMW. I have to say the 535i x drive wagon with the turbo 6 awd was def fun to drive. They also had a chef challenge at 11-2 and 4 with local chefs competing, got to try some good food with that. They also had a stationary display of all the new cadillac models so you could crawl around in them and look at everything...including the new CTS Coupe, that cts coupe was like staring into the face of god. I sat in it and everything in the world made sense. It was so beautiful, I told my wife that's our next car...I don't care if I have to go work a 2nd job cleaning toilets or something

Good job editing out your epic troll question, Drew.


So where can we see a list of places this is going to stop? Sounds like it could be fun.

Sorry guys, didn't take any pics except of me sitting in a cts coupe. My wife had the camera in her purse but didn't occur to me to take more pics. Prob cause it was 101 outside, camera was the last thing on my mind. Heres a link to the website

Aww, no St Louis.


All we eat here is thin pizza anyway.

Must have figured there were too many Priuses (Priuii?) and Subaru station wagons to make Portland worth a stop.

ON A SIDE NOTE-

I drove a escalade hybrid and shit a brick when the lady told me the one I drove was $85k as it sat....wow...I mean wtf..Not that I could afford that but if I could I'd prob opt for a used Bentley GT for that price....

Yeah, I wouldn't have wasted my time on Portland, OR if I were Cadillac either! But I'm amazed they didn't schedule St. Louis!

The guy was telling me they truck the same cars from state to state. I would have thought they would have just grabbed cars from a local dealer. Most of the cars had Kansas Plates which was odd...not even manu or dealer plates but actual registered plates from Kansas.....Not sure why Cadillac needed to buy and register their own cars
