Over the last week or so we had a few members write in and tell me their Cadillac Story. I enjoy these and our members like when they can meet some other members. Here are a few of the stories.

What Cadillacs Do You Own? 05 CTS-V & 98 Eldorado
Ive been a member for 6 months or so,last may I bought a Cadillac CTS-V from a doctor in Chicago after I had done an extensive search! This is including a useless trip to Patterson N J for a car from a broker that turned out to be a glorified Junk yard! 3 weeks later I flew to Chicago and was picked up at O’Hare by the doc in a orange ZO6 Vette! He was a man of his word the V could not have been better! Inside & out perfect — 4 extra tires & wheels 4 extra Brembo brake rotors in the boxes! Full tank of gas! THAT’S THE TICKET!
IM happy can u tell, last Tuesday after 5 years of talking to one of my customers,she finally sold me her 98 Eldorado! Can’t even believe this car! Never been over 55 mph in its life 37k! All the service records and paper from new pearl white white top beige interior – chrome package -all options except sun roof!
Brand new Vouge gold stripes! OH and why did she sell it you say? Cuse when she came to sign the title over last week she was driving her new car a 2012 CTS 4 Coupe red w tan! Very cool for an 82 yr old young lady! THANK YOU GENIE !!

What Cadillacs Do You Own? 1967 Eldorado, 1968 Eldorado, 1982 Cadillac Superior Hearse, 1992 Cadillac Superior 6 Door limo with 41,000 miles.
I have always admired Cadillac as my Grandparents bought matching white Coupe de Ville’s every year. His had black leather and hers black cloth. She always said the leather was too hot or too cold…but the cloth was just right.
My first Cadillac was a 1973 Eldorado convertible in colonial yellow, with gold leather followed by a 1974 in Cranberry Firemist. I have owned all years of the 70’s Eldorado convt. Except 1972. When I was 7 years old my parents friends came over to show us their new 1967 Eldorado.I bought that same car from their family 18 years later and still own it.
I recently added a 1968 Eldorado that I am selling on eBay. It looks great but deserves a complete restoration. For 26 years we have been the neighborhood haunt on Halloween so last November I bought a 1982 hearse to add to the decor. This year will be the first year with the hearse in the front lawn cemetery.
Last week I added a 6 door Brougham Superior 6 door limo. It is immaculate and has just 41,400 original miles. A great funeral home find. I am a lifetime member of Cadillac Club International since 1980.
Favorites I have owned…58 and 59 Sedan de Ville, 63 Coupe de Ville, 80 Fleetwood Brougham coupe and on and on…how can I not like a classic Cadillac!
I often get asked how do I become a member of the Cadillac Country Club. Our club has no dues and the only requirement is signing up for the email newsletter. If you really want to be a good member and make my day you can also join the forum and make a few post. You can also follow along on social media.
Another thing that makes my day is when people leave comments on these post. As of late I have been getting a lot of email replies when I send a newsletter. I would much rather you leave a comment so others can see it and not just me.
