Hi, thanks for looking! Up for bidding is a classic and rare Cadillac Allante. Don't really see these on the road anymore. Overall this car is in fair condition. Paint is OK, no rust on the body but the left front fender has been repainted and looks to be a shade off. The steering wheel adjusts up and down and telescopes to and from you. The back of the foldable top needs to be fixed. It sits a couple inches off the deck lid but seems easy enough to repair. Besides that, everything seems good to go and drives nice down the road and gets a lot of looks being a rare vehicle that it is. Please do not think this is mint condition at all because you will be disappointed. The Allante is now 25 years old so has the wear and tear of the age. I will say the engine runs strong, tranny shifts smooth, and the car has that true Cadillac feel cruising down the road. The dash is all digital and everything still works on the dash as well. Every single light, indicator, and control is in proper working fashion. 


This will be a 3 day auction/ 3 day full payment after the auction. The winning bidder can be picked up at the airport or bus station if you want to drive it home after the auction has ended. This car is being listed for a dealer in Menominee, MI but winning bidder can be picked up in Green Bay since that's where the airport is. Menominee, MI is about an hour north of Green Bay, WI FYI. Good luck bidding and once again thanks for looking!

This vehicle is also being sold locally at a very reasonable price. If you are serious about acquiring this vehicle please feel free to leave your phone number and the owner will contact you right away to discuss any and all details. Don't miss out on this classic because it will not last long at this price. You as the buyer are responsible for picking up the vehicle at its location and making full payment within 3 days.


Thanks for looking!

Dodge Dart falls short of Consumer Reports Recommended, Caddy XTS and Lincoln MKS, too

Thu, 22 Nov 2012 18:28:00 EST

The Dodge Dart, Cadillac XTS and Lincoln MKS all failed to earn a "Recommended" rating from Consumer Reports. When it came to the compact Dart, the organization's testers thought the vehicle offered a quiet cabin, solid-feeling chassis and nimble suspension, but the new model ultimately fell short of the coveted rating due to powertrain issues. The institute's reviewers found the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to be underpowered and noted "drivability issues" when the available turbocharged 1.4-liter four was paired with the optional dual-clutch transmission (some of our editors disliked it paired with the six-speed manual). CR also dinged the latter powerplant for sounding "raspy." For what it's worth, we think the forced-induction engine offers an excellent and playful exhaust note, but that's just us.
As for the XTS, CR lauded the car for its luxurious cabin, but the vehicle's experience was dulled by its finicky CUE infotainment interface. Overall, the big Cadillac scored much higher than its cross-town rival from Lincoln. While testers found the American luxury sedan to offer a quiet ride and quality fit and finish, they felt the MKS delivered a "cramped driving position, ungainly handling, uncomposed ride, and limited visibility." Ouch. At the end of the day, both cars fell short of rivals from Japan, Germany and Korea. Check out the full press release below with more details, along with CR's musings on the Chevrolet Spark and Lexus ES.

Carpool Deville aims to be the world's fastest hot tub

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 19:58:00 EST

The world needs crazy inventors with wild dreams. While we might not long for the things that they create, their contraptions certainly make the day a little more enjoyable. Take the Carpool Deville as an example. Nobody (well, almost nobody) is asking for a hot tub fashioned from a 1969 Cadillac that is still drivable. But now that you know that such a beast exists, don't try to tell us you aren't at least intrigued.
The team behind the six-year-long project has a pretty ingenious setup worked out. The Caddy's original 472-cubic-inch (7.7-liter) V8 both provides propulsion and heats the water. The interior is entirely replaced with a watertight, fiberglass tub that includes working jets, and the controls are all done by hand.
As if just building a mobile hot tub isn't enough, the team behind the Carpool Deville plans to take it racing too. Specifically, they intend to go to the Bonneville Salt Flats later this year to make a top speed run while immersed in water at over 100 degrees. They even have a roll cage all set to install to meet the safety requirements there.

GM recalling Cadillac ATS, XTS, Chevy Impala over faulty brake lamps

Thu, 06 Jun 2013 08:44:00 EST

General Motors has issued a recall covering 1,627 sedans over faulty brake lamps. Both the 2013 Cadillac ATS and XTS are affected by this problem, as is the 2014 Chevrolet Impala.
According to an official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, "the brake lamps may intermittently flash without the brakes being applied and the cruise control may disengage" on these vehicles. The report does not state that the brakes themselves are faulty, but rather that "if the brake lamps flash when the vehicle is not slowing, a following driver may not adjust vehicle speed when the vehicle is in fact braking."
This marks the first recall for the 2013 Cadillac ATS, as well as the recently introduced 2014 Chevy Impala. In late 2012, over 12,000 Cadillac XTS models were recalled due to a head restraint issue.
