Hi everyone, my name is Jerry, my wife and I just purchased our first Cadillac and couldnt be any happier! I have some information on it but not alot. So here it is!!
He was a pretty active member (over 1500 posts), so if you used the Advanced Search feature and search for his username you should be able to learn more about the car. For instance, in this thread that I started about hood venting he beat me to the punch on my idea and got his done (see post #51 and onward from there). You can see that's the hood on your car, and that's how I immediately knew which car it was.crankedupforit said:CTS V Redline 05 .

I'm new here and certainly don't run the show, but I'm happy that you bought this slice of history back to the community and thank you for doing so.So the gentleman that I bought it off of was actually a track guy as well. (He runs in the champ car series). He said he has had it for about 3 years and barely drove it during that 3 years due to everything else he does. So that dates back to around 2016-17ish. Now who he bought it off of I only got a little bit of information. I could ask him again how much he remembers who he bought it off of. But I feel like he had more of a story behind who he bought it off of. Not just, I bought it off Ebay. So maybe he bought it from whomever bought it from Mike's wife. When I talked to Katech they said it left their shop in 2010 with 35k miles and the car now only has 43k on it. So after it was sold it doesn't sound like it was driven alot.
Yea I noticed the UUC rotors and wondered if I could find a rotor that will bolt to UUCs hat.
Thanks for all the suspension information. Other than the sway bars, nothing else had any manufacturer logos, so I was curious what they were.
The car is definitely in good hands. I do collision repair for a living and my wife is a painter. We absolutely love these cars and fell in love with this one the second we seen it. We plan on keeping the car forever and it will always stay in the best condition possible. Also I have a terrible car obsession, I take care of them better than I do myself sometimes.
One last note, I do hope that me posting the car here doesn't upset anyone that knew Mike well. That would be the last thing I would want.
Thanks BMWWW, I hope to be a pretty active member here. Before buying this I only owned Fbodys (we have an 01' Trans Am and an LS swapped 84' Camaro). So other than the LS6, this platform is a little new to me but I've learned alot in the little time we've owned it.I'm new here and certainly don't run the show, but I'm happy that you bought this slice of history back to the community and thank you for doing so.
