    LOL, I saw Linda Vaughn at Cars n Coffee in Irvine Ca a few months ago. I didn't think I'd ever see her name in here.

    The "Shifty Dr." was always a favorite of mine, I have an old school Hurst T style shift knob in my V (on top of a B & M shifter) as a tribute to the Dr. of course.

    I love the history that goes with Cadillac (or Oldsmobile) nameplates. Eldorado, Seville, Brougham, Fleetwoot etc. are rich in that history. I like the use of V in the HO cars, good idea that can carry on for a long time. V could be the Cadillac version of SS in the not to distant future.

    Wow. That's kinda cool. Maybe they DO listen to us.


    Here's hoping for that triple-tail-lighted Impala Gary D. dreamed up.

    I went and had a look over the new CTS-V wagon. I still hold out hope for an LS3 CTS-V wagon, but I have my doubts.

    The salesman actually took an up call while he was with me. I guess showing up in a V1 wasn't good enough for him.

    Me thinks I would go to jail with an LSA...

    It's possible that an LSA powered V will be in my garage at some point, but the Panamera is awfully sweet and I don't have to get FI or a V6. I never would have thought it was going to be possible to cross shop Porsche and Cadillac someday, I doubt the folks at Cadillac anticipated such a thing but here it is. Porsche gives the choice of V6, normally asperated V8 or a forced induction V8 power (a full menu). Cadillac is not offering middle ground in the line up which is unfortunate. A V6 is for the wife, 556HP is for the maniac. Where's mine at? When I do get serious, it'll be tough not to grab a slightly used Panamera.

    Whatever the outcome for me, it won't be for a bit since V1 only has 65,000 miles on it.
