Is Cadillac Making a Convertible

Looks like Cadillac is planning on making a convertible again. You know I have been harping on making the ATS into a convertible. I just love the idea of a roadster type convertible like the XLR. Car and Driver has a great article on this. I hope they make it and make it affordable. 

Cadillac’s on-again, off-again convertible is reportedly back on again. Read more at Car and Driver.

I love looking at old car commercials and this little clip of Cadillacs from the 1970’s from the tv show “Lets Make a Deal” plays just like a commercial from the 1970’s. To see more click on out 1970’s Cadillac page

The new 2016 Cadillac ATS-V photos are on the internet. Interesting hood and grille.

What It Is: With the CTS having moved up a notch in size and price and no longer straddling the middle ground between compact and mid-size luxury cars, the upcoming CTS-V will no longer do battle with the traditional sports-sedan and -coupe bogeys, BMW’s M3 and its newly rechristened M4 sibling. That’s now left to the ATS seen here, uncovered and powered by a version of the CTS Vsport’s stout twin-turbo V-6.

Why It Matters: If you’re a luxury manufacturer playing in the…

I haven’t been working on the Cadillac site as much as usual because I have been traveling. I had to go to a conference in North Carolina and while we were there I visited the NASCAR Hall of Fame and the Hendrick Motorsports garage. Since most of you are car guys I figured you may want to hear about what happened when we met Jeff Gordon.

Website Update is Live

Last night I went ahead and changed the look and feel of the blog here. Although it looks kind of the same there is huge difference behind the scenes. Our website is now able to be read on a tablet or iPad for the first time without having to squint. While the main site is still not 100% where I want it to be the blog here is almost they way I like it. Sure I could have done a total redesign but like most people I hate change and I am sure our members don’t like change much either.

One thing the new update lets us do is have larger photos on the site. Let’s face it we are all getting older and our eyes are not what they use to be. What made me make the switch mostly was that WordPress the software we use stopped showing comments on the post. To me that is what makes the site work! I love getting comments on the site, wish we would get more actually.

Another thing I updated was the forms here. I can now set up a spot where our members can upload a picture of their car with details without me having to go in and do things like resizing the pictures or formatting the post. All these things are time consuming.

I can also offer the ability to post information about Cadillacs by the members. Sometimes in the comments I wish we had more information. Earle’s comment the other day about what to have in your car when you come across the country is exactly what I wish I could write! Now we can have members create a post. That ability will be coming shortly.

Fun Road Trip Map of the USA

I have been planning on taking a trip across the country. Eventually I think we will be driving back to New York from Phoenix once the house is lifted. I stumbled across this fun graphic I thought I would share. It explains the roads a little and what you should have in your car when driving a long trip. Is there anything missing? What else would you bring with you?
