As I said in a different forum thread:
I'm with PJ on this one. Well said, Young man.
I hope to drive a Cadillac powered Studebaker (talk about being open minded).
Do I want one of the newer Cadillac rides? No, something about them just doesn't click for me. Still and all, they do carry the same badging - and there is room enough for all. Those who wish not to see the current offering have the choice and can exercise that choice without limiting those who might. Seems strangely democratic - pardon the phrase. As for me, cubic inches rule - along with boost of course!

Only a couple of weeks ago my attitude was one of not being
the least bit interested in Cadillac’s newer offerings. Part of the reason was the "angular" design just didn’t work for me. Secondly, I am Old School and proud of it!
Now comes reality. My very nice, reliable, comfortable, good handling, ‘decently’ powered, four door Acura has been laid waste due to being rear-ended on the freeway. I NEED a suitable replacement. The offerings that I’ve explored have not matched
the level of what has gone away. FF, suggested the CTS, and as Eve said to God, "and I partook
." Well, not yet in that I haven’t bought anything but I’ve certainly given the CTS a good hard look.
Frankly, my choice would not be the Corvette
, supercharged V8, but the twin turbocharged V6-CTS V-Sport. But, they are too pricy for my limited budget. Now, I’m considering at least test driving the normally aspirated version of that same car. Does that make me a traitor to the Big Block? No, it simply means that a certain car might
meet the current need and has not eliminated over some arbitrary loyalty to an "age" of automobile.
Final answer is that I am working as hard as possible, putting my limited money where my mouth - and my heart - are. I've been out in the garage this morning working to finish that monster 512 CID, twin turboed, fuel injected, AWD Caddy powered Studebaker. But for the time,
I need transportation to get to the 3 assigned separate
physical therapies (different billing requirement) and the 1 cardiac rehab. Nuff said?
