: Great Lakes Cadillac Meet 2007

11-08-06, 02:23 PM
Okay, this could be cool. I just spoke to the Cadillac dealer in Cadillac, Michigan (Highpoint Auto and Truck Center), and he's very interested in hosting a meet next summer. He'd even put us up on his lot if we were to do the meet on a Saturday.

This is to gauge interest from any and all owners for such a meet. For those unfamiliar, Cadillac is a resort town almost dead center in the lower peninsula. It's not really close to Detroit or Chicago, but near enough to make a nice day trip. It's a small resort town - lots of golf, great restaurants, lakes, etc. A beautiful place. I'd be happy to look into a hotel group rate if any are interested in making it a weekend.

How about it? Cadillacs in Cadillac anyone?

Sometime mid summer? If it would be after July 11, I can get 5 days off from work. The reason being July 11, is I need one year at my workplace to get vacation, and 7/11 is one year.

11-13-06, 08:24 PM

11-13-06, 09:42 PM
There's nothing lowly about an '89 Brougham! They're awesome cars! :)

11-14-06, 10:46 AM
Finally a meet that's nearish to me. :gothimanic:

11-19-06, 10:49 PM
Hey, I'm from Cadillac MI! It would be cool to get back up there, but it's one hell of a drive. I'd be more likely to make it to the Iowa meet. Either way, it's cool to see intrest in my old town.

yeah, WTF is lowly about an '89 Brougham?

11-19-06, 11:50 PM

11-23-06, 02:50 AM

I might have a meet at our dealership... Test drives on cars....

Special deals for all forum members what do you guy think?


12-09-06, 08:35 AM
Actually, Cadillac Michigan is way closer to me than the far side of Iowa....

And I could do both.....

12-11-06, 03:43 PM
Where is this at in terms of planning? I am from Lansing , MI, so count me in.

01-11-07, 12:40 PM
So what, this idea is dead now?? Or??

Is a date going to be set???

01-14-07, 09:01 AM
Sorry everyone - this one probably won't happen. When I first planned it my schedule was pretty open, but now I'm so far over-committed something has to give.

If someone else wants to pick this up and organize it, please do. The dealer's name in Cadillac is Highpoint Auto and Truck - a Cadillac/GMC dealer. The owner is a great guy and a big Caddy enthusiast. I will be calling him to tell him I'm out of the loop, but someone else may pick up the reigns and contact him,

So, how about at Superior Cadillac? Michigan is the spiritual home of Cadillac.

01-19-07, 06:39 PM
I'd show up. Please get it organized.

01-19-07, 08:11 PM
Superior Cadillac works for me, I'm about 1/2 hour away.

01-21-07, 11:50 AM
It'll work for me too if its after July 18th, cuz I'll be back up in Flint for school again.

I will post a pull soon.. If I do this we need to make it Big. Also if you are looking to trade a vehicle in. I will hook you up on the spot with a great deal. Even if you bring in a trade too. It would be a good excuse to show off your new ride.

02-06-07, 11:53 PM
If this happens I'll try to make it. I'd love a reason to get back up there.

02-14-07, 03:08 PM
So that's it? Dead?

too bad.

02-20-07, 01:41 PM
If my white beast'll make it that far lol. If so,ill be there.....and hopefully not on da back of a flatbed!

Maybe your white beast can ride along side my white beast for moral support.

Sounds like a possibility.

03-21-07, 05:04 PM
Completely dead?
