I've been trying to figure what our older Caddies are comparable to from Germany and Japan. I guess these (including ETC / ELC) were the top of the line so I suppose they need to be compared to the top of what other countries had to offer. Aside from the BMW 7 series, I'm not sure what those are. :noidea: Ultimately, I wanted to do a little research (perfomance wise) and see how our cars stacked up then. All the ads from the era said that these cars were "world class". I wanted to find out how accurate that was in hindsight.
