    Hi all, I'm Giz. Retired AF officer, world traveler (govt and personal), inventor, computer consultant, in-car PC (CarPC) owner, USACI SPL competitor....

    Done some of everything, been some of everywhere; lived, loved, and lied a lifetime's worth, but I ain't done yet! My current personal challenge: set foot on all 7 continents (currently 2 to go and Antartica is going to be a b*tch but soon). Pick up my mail in St. Louis, but would rather be in Greece.

    Dad bought his first Caddy in 1962, and there's been at least one in the family ever since. Left me his last, a 95 Eldo - told me don't spend a dime on it just drive it till it dies. And at 189000 miles I could no longer bare to torture such a beautiful piece of American craftsmanship. Traded it. Missed it. Bought an identical 96. Now customizing it as an ETC-V. I know I may never achieve true V-status, but somebody's gotta try.

    That car is freaking magnificent.

    Hello all, I am Chad. I'm 20 years of age and currently I'm a full time service consultant at a Chevrolet dealership in the Twin Cities. My main interests are cars of all sorts, but luxury cars are my main love, anything basically with an engine (bigger is better!), all sorts of music, most of which you could classify under the "rock and roll" umbrella label and sarcasm, I love sarcasm. I love spending time with friends, cruisin around, meetin girls, running, roadtripping and hanging out on here. I'm a classic rock/alternative nut, I've got 1561 songs on my iTunes library, all of which were bought, most on CD form.

    I got really interested in Cadillacs back when I was 14, got my first (the '92) when I was 17, in December of '04 and I'm looking at gettin' something new soon, either a high end German car or an Eldorado Touring Coupe made in the twilight of their life. But whether I stay with Cadillac again or stray off, I'll be back again, with a classic sometime in the near future......maybe a 74-76 Fleetwood Brougham D'Elegance or Talisman, maybe a early '80s Fleetwood Coupe, maybe a 77-78 Eldorado Biarritz. Who knows.

    Yup, I lurk around these parts too, up in SE WI, in a little town of Darien just off I43.

    Got bit by the Cadillac bug with a 91 Deville I got from my mom and dad. They bought it 6 months old in Jan of 92, and gave it to me in Nov 02. I put 40+K miles on it and sold it to a friend and got a 94 Fleetwood Brougham V4P and since Feb 05 I have put 90K on it (It is Aug 07 now). I felt more comfortable putting mega miles on the Fleetwood than the 4.9L Deville.

    I do tuning of the 94-95 LT1, and will probably start messing with more soon. It is a ball....

    Hi, I'm Mark from Janesville WI. Checking in! This weekend I plan to take a trip to Kenosha and hit the lake for a dip and a picnic with the kids. On the way back we are going to make a stop at the world famous Brat Stop for suppers.

    Yeah, we know the place... We live behind it, we clash from time to time, 2am and they are thumping the house pretty good with excessively loud music....

    Know it all too well....

    Got them fined not to long ago so they are behaving a little better... But not much... We are moving soon so we don't care too much anymore.

    Yeah, I hear ya. It was fun back in the day - before we all got married and had kids and learned to act like a grown up, lol! Great to hear you are moving my friend. Maybe someday we can get some people together from the area and have a get together at the Vegas Gentlemans Club? lmao... (I was just at Kunes yesterday to check them out). I think I might be able to PM after this post...

    If you need a good parts guy, Dale at Country Cadillac in Delavan is a great guy. Busy as anything, but very helpful.

    I thought it was 50 to post IM's. Not sure if Lord Cadillac can override, but it would be helpful to cut down on spam posts just to get the count up (Sal??? PLEASE?)

    I'm amused because I thought I invented the term "meth belt". I guess the Post-Dispatch beat me to it!

    I just noticed this forum the other day, so here I am.

    2005 Stealth Gray CTS-V, that I bought used in March 2007.

    I live in Round Lake IL, which is about 15 minutes west of Great America. I work in Schiller Park, just off that little strip that connects Chicago proper to O'hare airport.

    We need to get some kind of southern WI northern IL meet going!

    Whoa, that's pretty fu**ed up. Southern Missouri sounds like Alabama circa 1962.

    And I thought I'd heard on the news that the city I live in (Eagan, MN) is one of the nationwide leaders in meth production.
