"....Our CV3′s seem to really work with American cars, especially the modern muscle ones......"


Specs: Shelby has always carried a name for strong and aggressive cars, and this GT500 definitely shows us that! The GT500 below went with our VVSCV3 wheels. They are 209/2010.5 and are covered with the Matte Silver & Machined finish!

I am not, and have never been a Ford fan. Any Mustang between the early 1970's and the redesign in the mid 2000's was pure shit. http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=1990+mustang&view=detail&id=235C6EDEEFF66D1083E3EBDADA547D8CA5C919B5&first=121&FORM=IDFRIR
I do love the new model, though. It is very nice looking, performs beautifully, and did I mention good looking? Lol.

Cool! It would never survive our potholes though. I love the whole retro movement. I'm waiting for the new Pacer.

Pretty neat workup for a primarily FWD GM clientele - this dude will go far.

As Mark Knopfler sang - Whoop-de-doo.

Now, when will you come up with engine and powertrain control modifications for the FWD Sevilles, Devilles, and Eldorados ??? (Not high school "awesome stuff": real, worthwhile driveway bolt-on performance work.)

You mad, bro?

You do realize that the CTS and STS and Escalade are RWD, right? You know that the CTS accounts for a fair margin of Cadillac's NEW CAR sales, right? That's who he's targeting. Plus, if someone really wanted FWD wheels, I'm sure he could do that too. Wheel shops, somehow, have this ability.

Don't be such a downer man.

Angry ???? (Mad refers to insanity, and I don't think any of us are there, yet) Nope, just pragmatic. You don't like the FWD qualifier in my post ??? Why don't YOU buy a Cadillac - any Cadillac - start maintaining it, offer advice, and stop being a troll.

VOSSEN is welcome, refreshing, and can sell all he wants to the ^^^ V crowd - just keep us cut in when they decide to dump a bunch of $$$ into Seville/Deville/Eldorado powertrain R&D.

...........and I am NOT your "bro".

Trouble with some children nowadays is that they take any differing opinion from their own as "negative". It's political correctness at its worst...........Boo, hoo !!!! You yelled at me: I'm gonna tell my lawyer.

I'm not a troll, actually. I OWNED a Cadillac and got rid of it because I needed more space. Note that it says Owners AND Enthusiasts.

Your panties - they are in a bunch today.

Got rid of a Cadillac because you needed more space? Holy crap, dude. Unless you had a CTS or a Catera (same thing in my book) I can't see why you would need more room unless you were a soccer mom. Lol... Depends... Anyway, the RWD Cadillacs of today have modifications available. The point is that there is simply no offered market for modifications in the FWD configuration. It seems we have all been quite touchy around here lately. Lol.

lol I transport an entire dorm worth of stuff to and from school every year.

Loaded wagon is loaded:

Needed more space. Plus, occasionally the wagon has harp and cello transport duty for one of my best friends. That's always fun.

Like Sting, I'm really not sure what this was accomplishing, but it's humorous non-the-less. Is Sub a getting little hot and bothered in this thread because his FWD isn't getting the same aftermarket love from this guy that the RWD's are?

I don't know what this thread is about other than a set of wheels, which happen to look very nice. I'd buy them if I owned a CTS.

Mmmm.... Love it. I would post pics of our Charger, but I don't have any and don't feel like getting off of my butt. Lol. We have a 2006 R/T. 370hp, big and luxurious inside, and it is one good looking car. Deep red. I have always been partial to Chrysler products. They have the best designers in the business... and the worst transmissions and electrical. Haha.

No, NOW they have the worst electrical.

Well, second worst electrical... you know what they say about the Brits and warm beer....

No, NOW they have the worst electrical.........maybe second...........Brits...........

'Roo is correct: There is NO WAY that any American electrical system in a car could be any worse than some of the old British Lucas systems. MG, Jaguar, Morgan, Austin Healey, etc., etc. - they were all electrical nightmares - not electronic - electrical.

..........and THIS is American muscle - 7.6L - Olds 461, 1971.................not some wussy 345 c.i. econobox engine......:sneaky:

Point of fact, when Lee Iaccoca (sp?) was contemplating buying Alfa Romeo for Chrysler and was going to market Alfa's through the Chrysler dealer network (big mistake) he sent a team of engineers over to Italy to go thought the Alfa 164's and replace European sourced electronic components with US sourced ones. Alfa the was the first brand to off a four year bumper to bumper warranty on their cars marketed in the US. I can attest to the fact that the Italian engineered with American electrical components Alfa 164 that I had for ten years was the the most reliable car I have ever had , bar none. I was also fortunate in having Alfa Romeo of Beverly Hills (an all Alfa sales and service facility) to service my vehicle and I did not have to rely on the incompetents at a Chrysler dealership!

I have no experience with Soviet or Eastern European, but it would be hard to conceive of worse electricals than those produce by the "Prince of Darkness" Lucas of Great Britain. Not even the under performing electrical parts suppliers from Germany and France could come close to consistently producing the unreliable crap that Lucas did!

My first car was a 2004 Chysler Sebring, and we have an '06 Charger R/T and a '11 Ram 1500 Laramie. My Mom had a '70 Challenger when she was younger, too. We are a total Mopar family. Except for my great grandmother... She bought a new Cadillac every year. Loved the land yachts... I know where I get it from!
