Those of you who've been around long enough know me and my silly, wierd and insane ideas.. I just thought of another one. I'd like to create a website of what cadillac.com might have looked like in 1980, 1970, 1960, etcetera..

So who's helping? :yawn: :rolleyes: :highfive:

Will you use a character based GUI?

I'm not sure what you mean by character-based...

I think the site will be loaded via cassette tape like games I had on my Commodore Vic-20!

Okay, I get ya.. NO! Not at all! I'm thinking a high-tech looking site with cars from the appropriate years. Nothing extremely fancy but well laid-out, clean, fast-loading and informative... Pictures, specs, prices, etcetera...

I like the sound of it. What can I do to help?

We should submit clean pictures to use for the site.. Maybe some descriptions.. Specs if you have any.. Ideas.. Etcetera...

Would this be a separate site or sub to this one? I think it would be awesome if it were an attachment to this site.

Well, I'm sure there are a bunch of pictures to be found here alone. The question becomes which are copyrighted and what not. There is a thread going around here the linked to a Caddy history website. Perhaps becoming partners with that site and actually rolling it in to CadillacForums.com is the best thing to do. Anything else is king of reinventing the wheel. If that is done a lot of tech research is already done.

I suggest at least that the user get to plug in the year the would like the site to be. I've got a '92 Seville and I offer up my car and any info and picts of the car I have.

I suggest it be a feature of this site. This is the "Cadillac of web sites" and to have this feature offers even more Cadillac value!

Love the idea of the vintage pages, sort of like dealer dreambooks?

I write ad copy for a living, if I can help, let me know.

Definitely needs a retro feel to it, particularly the 50's or 60's sections.

We need more hot babes in evening wear. I'd have that dress up around her ears by 9:00!

Isnt there already a similiar site that has years listed out from 1902 until now, and when you click on each year you can read up on various models?

I'm not just talking about a site with information. I'm talking about an actual site that's made to look like it's marketing/selling Cadillacs. If the web was around as we know it in 1970, picture what cadillac.com might have looked like. That's what I'm talking about.. An online brochure...

That would be a nice history trip Sal. I think it's a good idea.

Cool idea!

RiverDave mentioned this site too: http://100megsfree4.com/cadillac/
You can get a lot of pictures and info from there to complete your brochure-like website for the oldies! Complete with a 'customize your own' section!

Keep up with those crazy ideas of yours!

I like this idea. Would be kinda cool to do it as a collaboration(sp) with the Cadillac History site.

I do have the full dealer brochure from 1989 if that means anything... I just got it a few days ago off ebay.

I'm sure Google Images will find pics of all the Cadillacs.

Is there a market (Interest) in this information? It's a lot of work.

No market. It would just be for fun...
