    I love Wawa

    I finally got my own 3 weeks ago when they finally just opened one 2 miles from my house other than that the closest was 28 miles and that was only a year old.
    So any other Wawa would be 50,60,100 miles away.

    Wawa challenge would be impossible for me to even complete due to my location or I would LOL

    There is 2 chicks in Philly that have a personal challenge going to every single location.

    I don't even know what Wawa is, but I'm assuming it's like an ARCO/AMPM on the East coast.

    Except I've never heard of ARCO/AMPM either. Guess it all depends on where you be.

    It seams that Wawa is an East coast thing! For the first time I heard about Wawa in this forum! Initially I thought it is some sort of a joke that people are using to refer something...

    I've only seen one Wawa. It was in Orlando when I drove up there for an Impala and Caprice club meet.

    They had the cheapest gas, FWIW.

    Nope. Had some pretty good chicken wings with the car club people, though.

    Wawa is just a thing, man. If you don't get it, you don't get it. But if I get a chance to pump and dump, I do it!

    Stopped by the dealer today and had a chance to a side by side with an XTS.

    $56,00.00, and really looked nice (By my standards, that have been systematically lowered over the years!). What surprised me was how large it was.

    First I lined up the drivers seats.....

    ....the back was pretty close.....

    ...the front, not much different.....

    ....a fair amount narrower was the biggest difference.

    So there we have it. The good news is Cadillac is making a large sedan again. They just have managed to make it look like a small car.....wait what?

    When I see them on the road I can't tell if it is CTS or Ats until I am right on it. Why wouldn't they make it look a little more formal to set it apart from the smaller models?

    When I parked next to it I intended to show how much smaller it was than my 87. I figured it would be a laugh.

    When I walked away and to both ends, I was shocked by how large it really was, and impressed.

    It wasn't until I was writing this that I realized that the fact it shocked me was actually really sad. If they had only raised the rear of the roof a little, and made just a slightly more upright rear window, it would have made it look different from the normal "pile of car" styling that is the industry norm. I can see a fast-back look on the ATS and the CTS. They are sportier and that is good.

    Fast-back styling on a large luxury sedan is just silly. It makes the trunk opening smaller, increases the rear window size, makes a large angled blind spot, and reduces headroom, or worse, to keep headroom they angle the back seat so much you feel like you are "copping a squat" in the back seat.

    I know a more formal roof would cost a mile per gallon or so, but really, do the buyers of a 56k luxury cruiser care?

    Test drive one and let us know what you think and how you compare it to your classics! And if they have on of those Vsports, that would be great!

    I doubt I will get the time, the reason it is dark in the pics is after work at night is the only time I could make it.

    Looking at the pics I took I just realized another reason they look so small, the corners of the car are 2 feet in from the center of the bumpers! Look at them, and then imagine what a commanding presence it would have if they were only 6 inches in from the bumper. It would have an overhang of a formal luxury sedan!

    Why make a car that long and not show it is that long! Rounding the ends don't make any sense, unless you want to make people think they are smaller.

    Cadillac just hired a new Chief Marketing Officer, I think he should start by proclaiming a new motto..."Cadillac, We Cut Corners!"
