ha ha ha... I'm not going to tell him until he sees it. I mean, I'd be embarrassed to pull up in a taurus or an intrepid. so I figured, Go big or go home !

It is probably an 05 DHS. not sure though... hopefully its black with tinted windows, then we'd be rolling past the whitehouse in true american style.

black on black is the way to go like the secret service. One time i had a jeep liberty on a business trip....omg it was the worst. about 90 hp.

sorry that was an exaggeration... it was a 100 and change 4 banger, took soooo long to get up to cruising speed on the highway.

It's crazy how much HP they put into cars these days, its a craze.

Even so 100 is also feeble! My Vectra has 192 BHP from a 2.6 litre V6. A decent amout of horsepower is needed, but i suppose a 4x4 needs torque more than speed...

Good Good Good. A Deville will be perfect. DO try to make sure its black though. I'm sure that the company president will be impressed by you taste in cars:sneaky:.

The Deville is a good choice. Play some Jazz music/news radio. Make sure your attire is political like(Blue suit,white shirt,red(power tie) or go MIB style. You'll get complimented on car taste, attire, and may get a promotion. Not to mention the looks you get when people the Caddy rolling past. A win-win situation:D

This reminds me of that VW Jetta commercial. When the executive goes to turn on the radio and there is loud obnoxious music.

You will like the DeVille and he will to.

he left the trip planning up to me so hopefully el presidente is pleasantly surprised that he's traveling in luxury as opposed to an econobox.

It would be nice if it had a navigation system but I doubt it...

Yeah, don't get lost. lol

Whose money is paying for this car? If it is the companys it may be better to get a cheaper car...

I'm going to expense it! I got a cheap flight so this makes up for it. I'm going to close a lot of business as a result of the trip so it won't really matter spending an extra 40 bucks to be 10 times more comfy.
