It was the car brand of dreams two generations ago. Anybody willing to share family photos or other stories about past and present Caddys?

I think these new Caddys are one of the best platforms to do wheel/tire/suspension upgrades:

Talk about underappreciated, a 2005 Cadillac XLR was advertised for $59,9xx + fees at the tail-end of the 2005 MY at a new car dealer in Camarillo, CA.

I'd personnaly sport a new black LS7 CTS-V with 19 inch rims on it if I had that kind of money laying around. It's an absolute monster, has tons of HP potential and it's a classy looking 4 door car. The XLR is also uber-pimp in its design and affordable price. The interior quality has always been a let-down however, which is probably the deciding factor in many potential customers' decisions.

I should've made this a GM love thread.

GM just announced that Pontiac will soon be a division comprising only RWD cars!!!

GOOD! I hope GM gets off the FWD bandwagon and goes back to doing what they did best, build big RWD cars. The Japs can't be beaten in the LOLWD market.

I know, this is Car & Driver editor dreams come true; that is to say no trucks for Pontiac either. From automotive news magazine below:

"Pontiac: Nothing but rwd cars?
GM proposal plays up performance cars in attempt to revive ailing brand
After debating Pontiac's viability this year, General Motors' leadership plans to revive the brand's heritage of performance with a product lineup of exclusively rear-wheel-drive cars. There would be no trucks and - after the next generation of vehicles - no front-wheel-drive cars either. "

I just watched the RIDES episode on SpeedTV where 2 of those above Caddys were built by Chip Foose and his team. Pretty sweet work went into both of them, and it was fascinating to see how they do the clay molds for the front and rear bumpers (I'd never seen that). :bigthumb:
