    Hi ya'll

    Hey everybody! I'm a garage mechanic who fixes commercial aircraft for a living. I've driven junk cars for the past 12 years and finally bought a nice car. 03 CTS 5M, loaded, navigation, Bose, yadda yadda. It still hasn't set it that it's "mine" as I'm coming from a long line of garbage daily drivers. It appears to be very well taken care of. It does have a grinding/hi freq vibration upon heavy acceleration in 1st gear. Of course it didn't rear it's ugly head during the test drive and pre-purchase inspection :-P

    Other than that I also have a 93 Z28, full forged, Moser 9", built for a 250 shot etc etc and I'm also into modding android phones, so if you need some tech support with your DROID, PM me... :-) I am a mod on another forum.

    Re: Hi ya'll

    By the way, planktron, I wasn't able to see your photo when I posted earlier. I'm just now seeing it. CROM, that thing is sleek! I've forgotten how great the early polished wheels for this car looked.

    Here's mine. You've got me beat on wheels, my friend!

    Re: Hi ya'll

    Welcome! I used to have an 03 CTS; my first new Cadillac as things finally started going well in my life. You have that high octane 3.2 V6?
    What kind of commercial aircraft do you fix? Business Jets or airliners?

    I am a consulting engineer at Airbus.

    This was my 03 CTS (along with the Eldorado with the original paint and vinyl top)


    This was my 06 CTS

    Re: Hi ya'll

    I had no issues for the service. Only parts took a long time to order.

    Gorgeous cars there! Yup from what I've read the 3.2 was the only engine this year. She gets out of her own way. The manual makes it infinitely more drivable.

    I actually do heavy maintenance on your A320 line of equipment. We are always in contact with either AIRTAC or SEER12. First bird I ever wrenched on was an A310, I spent a week removing the center tank vapor seal for an inspection, then reinstalling it.

    I try to promote and buy American when I can because... 'Merica! But sometimes I look at a Boeing product and say "WHY DID YOU DO IT LIKE THAT?!" :-P

    Re: Hi ya'll

    ^^^Thanks!
    Though I think there was also a 2.8L in that year.

    I hardly see any in service A/C. I am mainly on A380 and since recently on A350 electrics design. But it is cool to talk with someone on the 'other end'. Since I was in flight academy for airliner pilot as well I am also still in contact with former flight student that now fly KLM or Lufthansa in both Boeing and Airbus or CJ and Embraer (some still Fokker).
