  1. C/D The lightning Lap 2009

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    All that matters.... ZR1 stomped a whole in everything that showed up and its the 3rd fastest overall. Just for the anti vette guys, it beat an atom and a x-bow which are serious track cars. even the cayman is making...
  2. White Lightning paint.. What Years?

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2011
    As far as I know...the White Lightning Tri Coat paint started in 2006. My question long was it available and when did they switch back to White Diamond. Texas Jim
  3. 02' DeVille - A lightning intervention

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    In what I could not bring myself to do, a lightning strike finally took care of the beast of the bottomless money pit.

  5. 2009 V in 2008 Car and Driver Lightning Lap

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion I'll let you go through to the link, as to not spoil any of the results. Pretty impressive though I must say. It's all at Virginia International Raceway.
  6. Lightning strikes the same place twice (or pretty damn close)

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    They say lightning never strikes the same place twice, but it can strike pretty damn close. In this case, I'm talking figuratively, not literally. 2 1/2 years ago, Hoover and I were on our way home from the dog park in Betty when I heard a couple of loud clunks, then looked in my rear view...
  7. White Lightning in 2007

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2011
    So whats the deal with white lightning in 2007? I see some dealers selling them as "White Lightning"/"Lightning White" but cadillac only shows the diamond white tricoat online - i was under the impression was a different pearl.. im looking for the white lightning as seen on the 05 devilles...
  8. White Lightning Paint Code

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    I personally like white lightening the best over white diamond/white pearl/white. Problem is that when looking online some of the dealers arent specifying the distinctions of white/white lightning/white diamond. So my question is... What is the paint "code" for WHITE LIGHTNING (Goldish/White...
  9. Which is more badass, 1990-93 Silverado 454SS or 1993-95 F-150 Lightning?

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    Just for fun, which first generation muscle truck is more badass, the 1990-93 Silverado 454SS or 1993-95 F-150 Lightning? I'd have to go with the 454SS, mainly because of the fact it's a big block, the 454's heritage, "four fifty four" sounds so much cooler than "three fifty one" GM, has...
  10. 1987-92 Pontiac Trans AM GTA, 1993-95 Ford F-150 Lightning. What do you guys think?

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I was checking out some insurance rates on with the cars I'm considering purchasing next, and I found out that the 87-92 Trans Am's and '93-95 Lightnings are incredibly cheap for me to insure! I think one year, for me, as I sit now, was $2034. The Lightning was like $2,200 a...
  11. A truck beat me!!!!!

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    So I am a little upset right now. My friend's GMC Sierra truck, with 22's on it, beat my car :rant2: :mad: :( Don't worry I wasn't the one driving, because if I was he would've beat my car by WAY more than he did. My man was driving. We beat him off of the line (although my friend claims it is...
  12. 07 Escalade ESV lowering?

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I'm about ready to purchase a new ESV but would like to lower it without making the ride to harsh. I've read about Ground Force and Eibach. Which do you recomend. I'll be using 22" wheels . Are there anyother manufacturers?
  13. Cleaning under hood - recommendations?

    HT4100 4.1, 4.5, 4.9
    A couple of years back when the intake gaskets blew on my 87 DeVille, coolant vapor coated everything under the hood. It stuck as a hard film to the painted surfaces, and won't come clean with any conventional spray and wipe methods. Question: What would you recommend to remove this baked on...
  14. DTS whites question...

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2011
    Saw this new Cadillac in a pearl white yesterday. As it turned left in front of me, it changed from bright white to a silver color. Now most the Cadillacs I see on the road are a beigey white pearl (I think you guys know it to be white diamond) but this was a bright white. Looking at the new...

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006

  16. Video Review: Jesda drives the V-12 BMW 7-series

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    The sales guy went with me so I didnt have a chance to do crazy things and molest the car. Ian paid me a few bucks to go look at it and give some feedback. The place deals entirely on ebay, so it wasnt a traditional dealership. It was also in Springfield IL, 100 miles away. Specs/Features...

  18. V vs. Lightning

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Someguy has challenged me to race my V with his Lightning. By the looks of it his Lightning looks stock. So does the V have a shot? Also, would the V benefit more from a dead-stop or a roll on? I know that the lightning comes with 380hp supercharged. My V has BB Long tube headers with no cats...
  19. CTS 3.6 vs. Ford Lightning

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Sunday night a friend and I went out for drinks. We did some catching up and decided to call it an early night. He parked his Lightning with valet so I had to schlep half a block to get my car off the street becaue I prefer to park my own car. He pulled away in a cloud of tire smoke so I...
