Watching a DVR'd copy of Payback (Speed Channel) where Tim Allen is giving a STS (Sleeper V) to his longtime friend.

During this show, he claims that he and a company called Wheel to Wheel was the driving force behind setting up the CTS-V
U guys believe this?

He also created what he calls headlight eyebrows that give the V a meaner look from the front.

I just find it pretty interesting that he had something to do with the V-Series.

I don't believe for one second he had anything to do with the V-Series. Jon's right... I do remember him supercharging a CTS, and modding another CTS (see -->http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Other-Makes-Concept-TAD-TIM-ALLENS-Concept-CTS-CADILLAC-TAD-TIM-ALLEN-DESIGN_W0QQitemZ270121871074QQihZ017QQcategoryZ647 2QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem). That's about it.

As far as "Wheel to Wheel", their website claims he's only a customer, along with Jay Leno. (See -->http://www.w2wpowertrain.com/t-about-2.aspx)

As far as the "headlight eyebrows", they are visible in the pic... but I'd be skeptical he came up with that idea. I don't buy it.

yeah he designed the 3.6 but his company was Tim allen designs. I bet he pushed for the V series but having any input i doubt. The eyelids I did the same to my CTS with Vynl, and gothicaleigh 8th day creations site vendor sells them very cheap
