What was the best thing you ever heard anyone say aobut your Caddy? And who said it?

I have two.

Everyone always says, "God damn thats a big sun roof."

My favorite though my Bro's ex said. "Jay, I like your car, it the Cadillac Etcetera."

hmmm, all the various comments form people when they ask what kind of car I have, and I tell them my car, "DAMN! you drive a Caddy!?" "how did you afford that?" then there is the "that's an old mans car"

And I havn't even drove it out of my driveway yet......

There's been a lot of comments over the years, mostly good. Guys at shows usually go nuts, guys at the track are usually STUNNED, and a few guys have offered to buy it.
The ones I really like are the comments like "That's the most gorgeous(or hottest) Cadillac I've ever seen".
But my favorite was from a guy in Canada that wrote me a long letter telling me how he was soon to celebrate his 60th birthday and that he was a successful guy that just never TOTALLY splurged on a car for himself. From the list of cars he said he had owned over his life, I found that hard to believe since most were very nice cars. But anyway, the guy was writing me to ask to buy my car because he wanted to finally buy himself that one great car before he was too old to enjoy it. Talk about the ultimate compliment.
While I was genuinely touched, I had to inform him that it was NOT FOR SALE. He pressed me and I finally told him that he would never want to pay what I would want since the car meant so much to me, and that the car is not worth that much more than a standard '95 Fleetwood. Unfortunately, his next statement was not what I was prepared to hear. He simply said, "name your price". I DID think about it for a day or so but finally told him that I just couldn't sell it. I'm sure I'll live to regret that but for now...........

i was going to start a thread about "most common things people say about your car" and a search turned up this. :)

from men, while driving, i usually get the "far lean and hand signal", a thumbs up or mouthed "nice car".

women will look and smile, which is better than looking and looking away :)

when im parked people come up to chat, the most memorable was an older (60's?) guy who had a 50's caddy and told me it would bring years of enjoyment to my life.

another story was a woman telling about her highschool days with her dad's caddy and fitting 17 people in it one night.

I don't have a Cadillac, so here's other cars:

The Infiniti Q45:
"I like the gold clock. Its looks nice."
"Uh oh, I better put my seatbelt on."
"Your car is so much fun to toss around."
"We smoked him!"
"Riding around in this thing makes me feel like a celebrity."

The Mazda 626:
"Can I do the shifting? Please?"
"So it seems like you like nice things." (Says the person who owns a smelly minivan full of garbage and dog food.)
"Uhh, its okay I guess."

The Mazda 929:
"There's no such thing as a 929. Do you mean 626?"
"Oh wow, this drives really smooth."
"Wow, this is a really nice car. What did you say it was?"
"Why do I keep hearing wind? I'm sure I shut my door all the way."
"I'm sick of cleaning my driveway. I want you to park in the street from now on."

The Ford Explorer:
"Dude, this thing is a piece of sh!t."

Mostly I hear this comment in irritated tones, "Huh! Not everyone can afford expensive vehicles like that. Lucky girl." from folks who drive pick-up trucks which cost two or perhaps three times as much as my Catera. *shakes head in wonderment*

But I also get a few, "Kinda sporty... for Sarah." And a favorite was, "Can't believe that's yours. A Caddy is just too pretentious for you."

Ah well. ;)

The best was from my Dad, though. He says, "Just like your mother!"

"That thing is Badass!"

"I didn't know Caddy's could make that kind of noise..." (reffering to my Corsa exhaust)

"This thing is pimpin'..."

Just an example of what I hear everyday at school...hehe

I was driving down a crowded street downtown where I live. A Deville DTS was rolling right next to me at this time. When he pulled his car next to my '91 Seville, he said "man, that thing is in mint condition." That was before the car was wrecked. She'll be back in mint condition one day...

Other things I've heard (after mods):

"That thing's a beast!" After rolling on a '96 Mustang GT.

"You don't wunt nun of dis!" After Caddy-slapping a Honda Civic by several cars to 40 mph.

"That's the quickest Seville I've ever seen." After getting my ass handed to me by a 2003 BMW M3. It was a decent race though.

Hmm. I've gotten:

"A DIESEL Cadillac?!"

"I can't believe that thing still runs!" (from the service manager at Parker Cadillac, he hadn't seen one running like mine in over 15 years)

"Damn Ben, You got a pimpmobile!"

"Wow, you got COUCH leather seats?!"

"You even got a CB Radio in that thing? Factory Installed? What?!"

The list goes on and on:rolleyes:

The best thing ever said to me about my Cadillac(s) was/were:

One night I let my buddy drive my 93 Deville out to go to the club. Well at 2am or shortly after closing, he walks outside with my cousin and another pal and low and behold there are 4 beautiful woman standing by my car asking who car is this? This is a beautiful car. (93 deville with vogues and wires,simulated convertible top, chrome blinding from all over, pinkish in color with the top,interior to match.)

When I bought my first "Lac" 93 ETC: Wow this car is fast!(from wife as I hit the I-75 freeway home from the dealer at 95mph)
