On the episode tonight Paulie pulled into Tony's drive way in either a silver CTS or an STS - was anyone able to get a good enough look at it?? I would assume a CTS would be a bit small for Paulie so I am leaning towards an STS.

Paulie had an Eldorado before, so my guess is he got the new STS.

Silvio had a black STS before, so I'm sure he got a new one too. The Jersey crew is rolling in cash right now.

There will probably be some easy deals in Jersey on lightly used Caddys in a few months. I've got dibs on Tony's Escalade.

That reminds me, I've gotta go start the bit torrent for tonight's episode.

Eldorado is a great mob car, isn't it? There's an Italian guy I know who owns a store that sells high end tobaccos, liquors, exotic imported fruits, etc. He has had a few of them. It would take no imagination to put him as a mobster. (He's cool, I have no idea of any involvement in anything, nor do or would I care.)

One thing I love about that show is whoever writes/directs it sure as shit knows how to accurately do a dream scene. Between last night's episode and that one where he dreamt he had to kill his cousin, they're very well done. They definitely do their research on dream scenarios.

I don't have HBO so I have to "illegally" download it via bit torrent. "TorrentSpy" has taken the television link off their page, you have to search the old fashioned way.

Hopefully it will be available by this afternoon. I sure hope HBO hasn't locked them down.

This is the only time of the year I have HBO. When Soprano's goes off air this season I will cancel my HBO - but I gotta have my fix.

It was a CTS. Since I have a CTS I am always quick to identify a CTS!

That lighthouse is the afterlife- if he gets to it hes done. For somereason I find that lighthouse to be very poetic and it really struck a nerve in my heart- i dont know what it was or why, but it did.

CTS isn't an ideal mob car... There's no trunk space

I saw it too and believe it was an STS, Me and Paulie always drive the same car.

So far we have votes for both the CTS and the STS... hmmm. Maybe in next week's episode they will get back to some killing and we will get another shot at identifying the car.

I stumbled across this interesting little tidbit about Paulie (Tony Sirico)

it was a cts

After looking at the body lines on the rear quarter panel of the car Paulie was driving versus the two options I am inclined to agree.

I'm really glad you got the profound reference of the lighthouse. My parents always call me downstairs during the dream scenes and I hav to explain it to them..... What was his alternate identity in the dream? Kevin Finnerty?? I forget......

I don't get HBO(right now I'm too broke lol) But I got it free long enough too see the season premere, god that show rocks! I'm going to have to buy all the seasons on DVD, as my computer is too slow to download them. By the way, I've heard that there have been a few sweet older caddys on The Sopranos in the past, is this true? I'm a sucker for an old school caddy. (like the '79 in Goodfellas :holycrap: )

Tony Blundetto had a sweet '76 Eldorado convertible.

I think Ralphie had an old Caddy of some sort, and Feech LaManna had a mid-70's Eldo too, I think.

The guys who get out of prison all find their old Caddys in pristine condition. I think they were stored in *****'s shop.

I'm watching it again right now and I gotta give props to James Gandolfini (Tony) for acting out the entire dream scenario and losing his accent. I've got the same accent and it's hard to purposely get rid of.....

Have you ever heard him speak while not in Tony character? He's got no accent what so ever and sounds sooooooooooo pedestrian it's comical. I saw him on Inside The Actor's Studio with James Lipton and it was pretty funny to hear him for that long without the accent.

He dropped her huh? Yoink! Haha.

Recently divorced Sopranos actress Jamie-Lynn DiScala has apparently hooked up recently with the Northern New Jersey radio god DopeStar this March. We got a word in with Ms. DiScala and asked her about her new man.

"I couldn't be happier, I love everything about him and he definitely drives me wild."

I suspect that she dropped him.

I remember thinking she was way too young when she married him.

And I remember thinking "that lucky bastard, he's got a 20 year old all to himself."

We were discussing the actors on a baseball forum yesterday.

Edie Falco is the best acting talent on the show, hands down. Gandolfini is such a strong screen presence a lot of his talent is ignored or missed. I'd really like to see him do a comedy like Gleason, he'd be great.

I would've missed the lighthouse reference if I hadn't been looking for it.

And back to the original purpose of this thread--I've paused it and reviewed it several times. Paulie is DEFINITELY driving a new gold STS. The gap between the headlight and grille is too big to be a CTS. The hood/fender lines are a little sharper too.

Elvis, I am going to disagree and say that it's a CTS. Here is a screen shot I lifted from the episode:

On the STS the hoodline is straight across, the CTS makes sort of an upward "V".
