I'm sitting in the customer lounge area at Lindsay Cadillac as my V recieves it's new shoes, shifter and boot. All I can say is that this place is first class! The new polished rims are as advertised. BEAUTIFUL! James sprayed my rotors and clear coated them and they look excellent. Rims and rotors are now on and they are tackling the B&M short shifter and two tone boot. I'll post up some pics later today if I still have daylight.

BTW - you all should see this facility. 10 repair bays, shiney white, pristine epoxy sealed floors. I mean you could eat off the floor in this place. Guess who's doing the install on my V? James himself! He also noted my center caps on the original wheels were peeling so he replaced those under warranty. He's even super lubing the GM optional bushings to get rid of that creaking under the car.

Was it worth getting up at 4:30am to drive 200+ miles to see James @ Lindsay? ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY! :D I'd almost forgotten what it's like to deal with a first class dealership. I even struck up a great conversation with one of the sales folks here as I toured the dealership. Everyone here is friendly and nice and not in the creapy, "I want to sell you a car" kind of way either. Genuinely friendly people selling and servicing customers and their cars! WHAT A CONCEPT!

Makes me wish I had gone to work today so I could have worked on your car for you and had you say those great things about me.

Actually we have about 30 bays and it is a great place to work.
It's a hotbed of activity during the week and none too slow on Saturday from 8 to 2.
James is a great guy to work for and I am very glad he came to work there shortly after I got hired.

If you bring your car in during the week, it's likely I'll be working on it. For the clutch or rear end jobs you'll be dealing with Donny, who is also a first class tech.
It's always great to hear from a satisfied customer.

CVP33,
Thanks for the comments. It was great to meet you and great to see those rims & rotors in person...:thumbsup: I hope the drive home goes fine...

super lubing the GM optional bushings to get rid of that creaking under the car
We got side tracked after installing the shifter and I forgot all about this...:banghead:
I hope your new rims & rotors will keep you on :cloud9: and the creaking from your bushing doesn't drive you insane... We'll just have to get you back up here before the weather turns bad...

You shoulda let us know you'd be in town. We'd have rolled out the red carpet for an out of town member (or at least maybe joined you in gobbling up some of Lindsays' donuts). We might even have been able to roust e-thug out of his crib........

What a nice day for a ride. I hope you had smooth sailing on the highway from hell......

We'll have to arrange a get together while the weather is still nice... Get everyone local together for a shop day at Lindsay or something and then take a drive from there... :thumbsup:

It was great getting together, even if I spent most of the time working...

E-Thug is out of town. He's helping Katshot install some slammin' mods on his '95 Fleetwood:

1) a diamond in the back window
2) velvet mudflaps
3) a "Lincoln style" tire on the trunk

I hope that they will provide us with a very long post about it later, possibly comparing the Fleetwood's styling to an SRT-8.:bomb:

A Lindsay get together would be great! James, what ever happened to the super hot cashier that that used to work at Lindsay? I haven't seen her lately. She is worth the trip all by herself.:highfive:

Yes! You're going to like these. With the painted rotors and polished rims it just makes the V look that much better. I also like the new B&M shifter. The shifts are positively mechanical and precise. Took me a while to get use to 2nd and 4th shifts as the travel is no where near as far. There is some transmission noise carried in through the shifter though, especially if you rest your hand on the shifter itself (which I do). I will play with this tomorrow and try to stuff some more insulation in, around and on the shifter stalk. Still love it though.

As for pix I'm out of luck. Momma went to see Miss Saigon with her girl friends and she has the digital camera tonight. :banghead:

i did to first time i seen it. uh oh, story time with Low.

off topic, cry about it.

a long while back when i was a kid there was a sign on the side of the road out from the boys club i stayed at that summer... it said "Smart Assets." well they were taking the sign down and broke for lunch leaving the sign the way it was "Smart Ass" for almost an hour and a half. i took a picture of it but i lost it when i moved.

There is (or used to be) the CANAL SIDE motel right near the sagamore (or Bourne?) bridge going over to Cape Cod. Hurricane Bob came through in 1991 and knocked off the "C". It stayed like that for quite some time......

I'm gonna have to visit this place. My previous Ford dealership was better then my present Cadillac dealearship. Get this. I've done much more work on the F250 Harley D then my CTS 3.6L. My CTS is full bumper to bumber warranty, and yet I STILL have to beg and fight to get things fixed. At the Ford? They just said, 'yup', and fixed things! Sounds like Lindsay Cadillac has a great rep for a reason!

By the way CVP33, when I had my old man's CTS-V for 2 weeks, I got up a couple mornings around 5 and drove alot of miles, but not to a dealership, just to drive. It's worth getting up early just to push the gofast-pedal! :worship: :worship: :worship:
