Hello, everyone...

Got my first Caddy about 2 weeks ago - I've been poking around here since, but was a slacker and didn't introduce myself right away. I've really enjoyed reading the posts and gleaning those nuggets of good info from everyone.:worship:

Now, about my new acquisition: I was looking to get rid of a Saab I had (the 9-3 and I just didn't fit together), and was actually looking at getting a new Grand Prix GTP, when I self, 'Self, this would be the perfect time to look for a Caddy'. I had always wanted to get an Eldorado, and since they weren't makin' 'em any more, I figured now might be a good time to find a not-so-used-in-good-shape specimen. Well, lo and behold, I was able to find an IMMACULATE 2000 ETC with only 22,500 on the odo (and for what I think was a good price) sitting on the lot here in South Denver. Needless to say, the Grand Prix idea was out the window and I was in the driver's seat of my 'new' car. I LOVE it! So far, it's been a great car, it's a certified used (meaning 7 years or 100k from original service date for no-deductable warranty) and is loads of fun to drive.

There's supposed to be a picture attached to this post, I'm hopin' it makes it.

I look forward to learning more from all you gurus out there and definitely look forward to many miles of enjoyment from my new Caddy.

Thanks for being here!

Jon Caldwell

Hey Jon - Welcome to the CadillacForums! That is one *hot* looking Eldorado you have there. Its funny, I really like the Eldo in that Crimson Pearl but not the STS so much - go figure. Anyhow, keep up with the recommended maintenance - with that warranty you should be set for a long time.

The picture is awesome - excellent quality and just the right size - big enough to see all the detail but not so big as to scroll off the side on the screen (hint hint big picture posters :D). The car is pretty shiny - do you do your own detailing?

Enjoy your time here on the CadillacForums!

Normally, yes. However, what you see is the detailing from the dealer, as well as the 'just washed' look from my local touchless car wash. I've been reading some of the posts on detailing and am leaning towards getting the Liquid Glass product line for my new toy. Thoughts, anyone?

Yeah, I heard that's where crunk came from. It's cool, I'm a fan of Late Nite. Of course I put it there as the southern rap term that I'm sure almost none of you are aware of, but it's all good.

I'm aware of it having some sort of rap origin.
