    Hi! I've been a member for a little over a month. Just discovered that I have an Inbox with a welcome message. I have learned a lot already and feel as though I've only just begun.

    "Cadillac" has meant luxury to us since long before the first imports became established competitors. My wife and I just purchased our first dream car in April... this 2010 DTS Platinum Cadillac that we call our "Bronze Beauty".

    Having lived most of our lives at an income level that supported few luxuries, it is with proper pride that we can now own this wonderful automobile. It may be a used model in actuality, but it is as new to us as a model off the showroom floor. The Tuscan Bronze Chromaflair exterior highlighted by the 7-spoke chrome wheels with the Cadillac badges on bumper and rear deck are joyful reminders that we now own an automobile that appeals to our aesthetic sense of beauty. The linen Alcantara headliner, shale door panels and cocoa seats and floor mats are beautifully highlighted by burled maple wood trim. Driving or sitting in this vehicle gives us a feeling of royalty enjoying the view outside from a magnificent chariot. Yes, we are now riding comfortably in our stately and luxurious Cadillac! YIPPEE!!

    Glad you dropped in and shared your story with us.

    Your sentiments will probably be shared with a lot of the older forum members. It sure hit home with me.
    It hit on an emotional point that I had never put to words.

    Your statement....."Cadillac" has meant luxury to us.....

    Those words should some day grace my tombstone!
    There were wonderful Mercedes and BMW's, but Cadillac was in a class by itself. Their build quality was no longer "The Standard of the World" and we knew that, but it didn't matter. If you won the Lotto or had a huge windfall of money, the first thing you did was buy your Cadillac. In small town America in the sixties and seventies, when I grew up, the man who drove a Cadillac was someone important. When you passed his business and it was out front you would walk over and look in it and marvel at all the toys and the beauty of the interior compared to your family's car. When he drove down the street people would turn and watch it go by.

    I'm sorry to take so much space in your thread. Your story just moved me and took me back to the reason I am here. I wish you and the Mrs. many happy miles being the "people with the Cadillac"! I hope it lives up to your dreams and expectations. It is a beautiful example of a True luxury brand.
