    When you do that also post a pic of the guy who assembled your engine since they are all hand assembled by a single tech.
    I think they are signed around the valve covers?

    Re: Looking to buy a STS-V

    You talking about the little plate thing that has the name of the guy that put the engine together? Tom Morrissey built mine.

    ----------

    The following is a post on cadillacowners.

    Here is a list of some of the known XLR-V engine builders at Wixom:

    Tom Morrissey
    Robert Vernier
    Ron Hein
    Charlie Giese
    Bruce Blomfield
    Gary Andrews
    Paul Sage
    Bruce Elam
    Ed Richards
    Bob Trommater

    It's an interesting read with a link or two that branch out to some more interesting info. http://www.cadillacowners.com/forums/offici...ed-photos.html.

    Re: Looking to buy a STS-V

    Sorry guys I been delaying this recall sticker, it's posted on the sight shield on the drivers side. My hub bearing came in today, so tomorrow AM I am going to change it and give the car a nice bath for a car show on Sunday. Tomorrow I will also take some nice pics of the car for here and myself.

    ----------

    In the pic of my car, you can sort of see it in the lower right corner of the pic of the engine bay. It is signed and numbered too

    Hello all. So I've been reading posts on this forum and I have to admit I'm very impressed by the knowledge and experience I've seen. I'm jumping in head first - I looking to get an STS V as a pleasure car, weekend driver. I live in NY, looking below $25k range. ANY guidance would be greatly appreciated. I understand this car is somewhat rare, but I think I've come to the right place....

    Re: Looking to buy a STS-V

    Autotrader.com. Search for sts and select v8 as an engine. Then in keywords type "sts v" for some reason if you include the dash it doesn't work as well.

    Cargurus.com. This site actually lists the sts-v as a vehicle that exists.

    If found numerous cars off each. Got my current one on car gurus. Good luck you'll enjoy it.
