It's the new "Clone Trooper" vs. classic "Stormtrooper"

I have never heard a positive opinion of the restyle from anyone, including Cadillac employees. No worries, Sting, we're not shocked to know.

Also: They redid Stormtroopers?

I took this picture of my hood ornament shortly before she died. I took the others on the beach in Ocean Shores, WA.

Thanks for the new desktop background vince!!! Also, my old 91 had an awesome view down that long hood(that's an NOS hood ornament, along with all the other crests on the car)

Recently found my Grandfather's 5 year parts manager pin from the 60's.

I like ALL the Cadi Crests & whatever is next. As long as it shows that they're still in production.

Oh, and the new "Clone Trooper" is actually older than the old classic "Stormtrooper" because the new movies happened before the old movies and the old movies happened after the new movies. Clear??

^^^ LOL. To me that was the biggest failure of the new movies. They just couldn't help themselves in making everything look too sleek and futuristic.

Me too, but the kids seem to love it as I did the original.


I just asked my kids (5,8 &11) which crest they liked the best and they all picked the new one.
They probably won't like the new one 20 years from now, too.

I'd say the wooden acting was the biggest failing. Seemed like they just read their lines to advance the story to the next big action sequence. Ian McDiarmid, Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Frank Oz, and Anthony Daniels did give credibile performances though(the emperor, Qui-Gon-Gin, Obi-One, Yoda, and C3P0 respectively). Its just that Hayden Christiansen, the kid who played Anikan in the first one, and especially Natalie Portman made the movies almost unwatchable.

But I agree with you on them getting the visuals all wrong. The first Star Wars, everything was kind of dirty, gritty, dusty, and well it looked like they were fighting a war. The rebels gear and ships looked beat to hell, the empire's ships looked very sleek and clean, but totally devoid of any flash or color. The new movie sets everything looks too colorful and CGI.


Getting back on topic, I always did love the Cadillac crest with the pope hat as I call it.

EDIT: And I know my dad would forever haunt me if I rolled him off in a crimson hearse. The man bleeds orange lol.

Hey Roo, off topic, or I guess off the already off topic, has Lupin gotten anything new done to the Corvair?

Yes.

I'm writing a thread for it right now. I figure this forum is varied enough that it could be appreciated here.

In any case, new emblem sucks.

I love the new emblem. I love it to death. I am even wearing underpants with the new emblem on them. Not even joking.

I like the new emblem myself, what would you prefer Cadillac to have? It's modernized and the old wreath is now a classic, cadillac doesn't have a plain basic image like BMW, Mercedes or Audi they have to evolve

Love how the ad generator at the top of the page popped up an ad for "star wars legos" now that "star wars" has been mentioned in a post. :rolleyes:

I don't care for it but I'm sure the guys in the 60's said the same thing when my favorite was introduced. Tis the way of the world. To me it just looks overly sleek like they tried too hard, also kind of plasticy and cheap...oh...now I get it!:D

:bigroll: The new emblem is fine. I like the older one better, but the new one is sleeker and more fitting for the Art and Science theme. Although, I would like to try a 90s emblem on a newer Cadillac :stirpot:

the new one is sleeker and more fitting for the Art and Science theme.That, I agree with. But it still reminds me of some sort of Chinese knock off.
