Can you Hear Yourselves?

Would you listen to yourselves. I don't have a 'Lade but everyone is saying how pointless the vehicle is. None of you drive your other Caddies because they are ugly or because they serve some specific purpose only. Everyone on here is swapping tips on how to make them look better or go faster or ride smoother. So whether someone buys an Escalade and drives it to the grocery store or jams 22's on it and lowers it, its their Caddy and thats what they want theres to look like or do.

It not an issue of if you would but 20's on yours or not, just like its not an issue to the Escalade drivers if you are reprogramming the computer in your Seville, Fleetwood or Deville to hop up the horsepower to some ungodly rating. Not every Caddy on this board is a daily driver (so how useless is that?) but you still cherish it cause its your baby. Lets not hate on those folks who can afford what they want also.

Hope I don't isolate myself on the board but I don't think you guys were hearing yourself bash other Caddy owners for loving their rides too.

Don't get me wrong I enjoy the site, and appreciate all the opinions on here. Whether I agree or disagree, because it gives a different perspective on things we may have not thought of. This conversation just seemed soooooo one sided I felt I had to offer a different point of view as well.

People buy Escalades because they're the most ostentatious vehicle they can afford. Escalade is big, luxurious, roomy, expensive, impressive, menacing, empowering, and secure. No mere car can deliver the same ownership and driving experience.

That's what owning a Cadillac is all about.

You may think driving around in an Escalade is wasteful, pretentious, ignorant, selfish, dangerous... that's exactly how many people viewed Cadillac cars in their heyday.

Arguing the technical merits or shortcomings or (gasp) utility of Escalade completely misses the point of the beast.

Escalade delivers the traditional Cadillac mystique better than anything else in the inventory today.

And this is why we live in AMERICA folks.... :D :banana:

Not to mention being the second UGLIEST vehicle G.M. EVER built! Second only to the Pontiac AZTEC!
I gotta admit it KC that AZTEC is butt ugly. I'm not sure what American engineer are thinking sometimes as far as what will sell. Maybe they need to help some of these old timers to retire and put some young innovative minds in the drawing rooms.

Yeah it looks like something a kid would draw in the 3rd grade you know his super hero vehicle or something, with every unGodly attachment that you can strap on it as if someone is buying it as a survival vehicle. LOL

Well that's believable. Who would want to pay a lot for that but ugly car. And the US wonders why the Japanesse and Euros are coming over here and sell the hell out of cars. It they continue to think that vehicles like the AZTEC will outsell a BMW X5 SUV they must be nuts.

We don't want our utility vehicles to have useful gadgets in America we just want them to look good. It's not like 90% are going to ever take that thing of the road or anything like that.

Plus do you know how hard it has to be to get laid driving an AZTEC?
