...With a title like that , let the games begin :D. Also, by Tard, I mean no disrespect. Err actually, maybe a little. OK I MEAN FULL SHORT BUS ACTION (you tards!)

Seriously though:

http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/cadillac-versus/20037-stock-cts-v-vs-modded-sho.html

Was moved, to Cadillac Versus. I could see the kill section, but come on. Is anyone gonna compare a SHO to a V?


Now, I would humbly request that this thread be moved back to V, so we can continue to humiliate and generally make fun of Big Jim, in our own little sand box for perpetuity!

Now back to my Bourbon :alchi:

I guess that was a Missouri thing bro :confused:
I suggest you open your eyes. It's all around you. In fact, you've moved yourself to psychoSHO land.

If you see a white '91 with carbon fiber hood around TX/OK, don't bother embarrasing yourself. You'll need a lot more than a Magnaflow...and probably even a Maggie...

Since Chris and you tards touched a nerve, let's review. Funny how people want to put down the SHO, especially the ignorant younger ones.

The SHO was almost the fastest 4 door sedan sold in the US when it was released and was so for at least the first few years it was made. The M5 was faster, marginally so until '91 when the 310hp model was introduced. The Taurus may not have been the sexiest looking thing but the interior was upscale for the time and the seats were among the best in the business. Still is. They're better than the Vs seats.

A fully loaded model was in the upper $20Gs. The Yamaha V6 with 220hp wasn't surpassed by another V6 in power for nearly a decade. And that power was accentuated by butterflys that opened up for a rush of power at 4,000 rpm. Keep it below that and you'd get economy car mileage. Get above it and you got turbo like acceleration to the 7,000 rpm redline. It shined on the highway. Cars with as much as 300hp could get torched if they couldn't breathe up top.

SHO FTW!

Heavymetals did the right thing Chris. Call him (and the rest of the mods) what you will at your own peril but they were right and you are wrong. The title is as obvious as the location in which the thread should reside. If you want to stay in your own little world that's certainly your choice and right, but don't disrespect the mods for doing their job properly.

That is all ....

Are you serious? You've got me thinking you're a frosty old curmudgeon. Just kidding, I just wanted to say curmudgeon. But seriously, Chris is joking. Everyone in the CTS-V forum knows this. Unfortunately, because of these tards, it's now not in the V forum...


BANNANATION!!!

Hey, I don't mind joking but this one came off more disrespectful to me, probably because I don't know Chris due to the fact that I don't spend any time in the CTS-V forum and I haven't noticed him in the forums that I frequent.

The mods get enough grief and harassment around here, I felt this was too blatant here in the Lounge and might encourage further disrespect from newer or younger members and thus spoke up. It might be funny to some and I may well come off as crotchety to those but so be it.



I like curmudgeon, it's a good one. Right up there with old coot! :thumbsup:
