Sal Collaziano invited me to introduce myself and I'm not one to mess with Sal.

I'm Ed, a magazine editor living in St. Augustine, Florida. My wife, Carol, and I became first-time parents when I was 52. My daughter, Jenny will turn 4 this Sunday. Carol is a hospital administrator.

We own two of those cars talked about elsewhere on this forum and are much happier with the older one.

Be seeing ya.

Welcome to the forums Ed.

Thanks for the warm welcome. We own a '96 Devlle and a '01 Deville. Both were purchased after my dad leased them. I knew what I was getting. The '96 has more vim and vigor and the '01 has had a problem with 3 of 4 power window motors dying within the last 2 years (the first one died about a month out of warranty). Still working with Cadillac Assist to resolve the issue of an obvious manufacturing defect. The only pixs I have right now show what the front end of the '96 looked like after an encounter with a small deer this past July and what the car looked like after the body work. Doesn't look that bad but the repair bill exceeded $2,000 and was pushing the "total" limit (which is crazy).

See you next time.
