This is the day I turned the Vadermobile over to Soldier Mike Green. I imagine the two month wait to return from Iraq will seem like forever!

It was sad for me loading the CTS on a trailer for its trip to NewYork.

Mike's Uncle Paul had the honors of driving the Caddy to it's new home in NY.
Paul's a hero too. He's a New York FireFighter and was a Ground Zero on 911. I think the Vadermobile has been passed on to a proud and honorable family!

Theres only one kind of Hummer I like.....




HAHA just kidding! I do really like the H3 but you couldnt pay me to drive a truck of that size with a 5 cylinder engine.

Sounds like the Vadermobile went to a good home! Glad to see that for sure!

His home is in NY as is his family but he's based out of GA. This is his second tour in Iraq:eek:

Not a Caddy for sure RT! So much manual stuff. No steering wheel buttons. No dual climate controls. No seat or mirror memories.:mad:

when did this happen? how did i miss it? love that picture, its my new background:D. but i must ask you 2 questions: you never wanted to be a wanna-v but you added the all the v bumpers and side skirts and why did you go for a all blacked out look and never paint the hood moding black?

It was all about looks RB. I think I have a pretty good eye for "coolness". I bought a hood strip off eBay and painted it. IMO it looked like over-kill and I returned the chrome strip back. There are enough pieces of chrome on the Vadermobile to give it good balance. I retained the body colored grill because I think it looks a lot better than the V Grill and adds to the aero-stealth look of the car.

Now I'm starting with a totally new blank canvas...the Hummer. It will be completely opposite. I'm trying to make a "Brick" look like Darth's "Death-Star".:bouncy:

Yeah..Regal always has been a dip-S**t:rolleyes:

Of course you have to be cool in order to make cool. Leaves you out dude.:D
Bob, I was berating your ride, not you personnally...relax buddy ;)

I'm just going by what most ladies I know think...and who cares what a car looks like if it doesn't impress the ladies :)
