My father always owned Cadillac's.
He told me that he liked them in the 30's because they were the fastest cars on the road other than the unaffordable Duzzy's etc.
As he aged he still owned Cadillacs with the exception of a 1954 Olds Super 88 2 door. I loved that car. In the 70's and 80's his Caddilac's were not so impressive. Just old man sedans.

Well the times they are a changin'.
I am close to 60 but I am by no means old.
I am in better shape than most people in their 30's.
I play bass in a hard rock band and I own a Cadillac Eldorado.
This is not an old mans car.

Maybe when I hit 90 I'll buy a Town Car.
But till then....
Keep Rockin' in the Free World.

Bass in a hard rock band! Awesome! hehe What's the name of the band? Is there a web site? Rock rules. :D

And yes, I agree. A Cadillac is NOT an old mans car. But hey, jealous people will probably always call it that. Heck, my Corvette is also called an Old Man's car...

I thought a Corvette was called a Mid-Life Crisis car. To go with the Harley, the hair replacement surgery and the 22 yr old girlfriend.. ;);)

(of which I have none. Did have a Harley once. And a 22 year old - when i was 23.. :D )

Does it count if you've had the harleys since you were 16? only had 1 Vette, 1 Lincoln and a Benz( That I still have!) All other cars have been Cadillacs. I shave the hair ( since I was 25 ) and the girlfriend is 44!........Crisis? What Crisis? I just can't stop havin' fun cause I'm gettin' older. What would be the point?

well, coming from an old fart (55), to me it's all preception versus reality: i LIKE the fact that there's an element out there that thinks the cads are old fogey material, until you leave them at the light! in some ways they're the ultimate sleeper and that's fine with me...walk softly and all that...jackg

I definitely think that the devilles look more "old peoplish". I dont know what it is about them, they just do. I guess most people think of cadillacs they think of slow, old people. I think that is becoming more for buicks now. Cadillac, i think, is starting to aim more toward the younger market.

Well they got no choice as seeing how Lexus and BMW are scoping them up and Benz got a winner in that C230 sport coupe.
It may be at the lower end of their lineup but Benz still keep the quality in it too. I test drove one last week. Very nice for the price. Now if only Cadillac did something to compete with it.
