Classey Blue Biarritz on 2040-cars
Kittery, Maine, United States
Back in the 1980's I owned one of these cars and loved it. It offered all the luxury and style of a Cadillac without all the bulk. A little over two years ago, I stumbled on this car on ebay and it brought back a lot of memories and I bought it just for fun from a West Coast private seller. Last year I moved into a condo with limited parking and because I also own 2 other cars, I have to shed at least one.
Everything works on this car: AC, seats, windows, mirrors, radio (incl antenna), cruise, lights, digital dash, everything. The previous owner replaced all the usual interior problems including new carpeting, floor pads, dash, headliner, all upholstery. There are no cracks in the door panels. Cosmetically, the interior is like new. There are some very minor, very few, very small flaws in the paint. The glass is flawless. The engine starts quickly and runs perfectly. There are no leaks. The transmition shifts perfectly. The brakes are strong. The tires have 75% of their tread left. There is NO rust as it was always on the west coast untill I bought it and I have not driven it in winter.The previous owner installed an elaborate $2000. sound system, hence the monster in the trunk (see photo). The monster is easily removed and the music system still works.
If a successful bidder needs help with shipping, there is a shipping company near me which I have used in the past and can recomend and I will be willing to deliver the car to them. If buyer chooses to use their shipping company, it is at their risk.

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.
The redesigned 2014 Cadillac CTS will be more powerful, stylish and luxurious than its predecessor, but it will also be much more expensive. With a new starting price of $46,025 (*including $925 for destination), the 2014 CTS represents a price increase of more than $7,000 compared to the 2013 model, but it should be more appropriately sized and equipped to take on rivals like the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which start at $47,800 and $51,900, respectively.

Available trim levels - referred to as Collections - include Luxury, Performance and Premium, offering either a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder or a 3.6-liter V6 and the choice of either rear- or all-wheel-drive configurations. For more performance, the all-new CTS Vsport model will have an asking price of $59,995. This 420-horsepower model is more powerful than both the BMW 550i and Mercedes E550 and about $2,000 less expensive than both.
There's still no word on what Cadillac has in store for a next-gen CTS-V sedan, but we're guessing power and price will both rise considerably. Scroll down for more info on the 2014 CTS that is set to go on sale this fall.
Johan de Nysschen isn't afraid of taking quick, decisive actions, even if they are criticized. Since taking the wheel at Cadillac, he instigated moving the luxury division's base of operations to Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood and introduced a new naming scheme for the future of the brand, like he did at Infiniti. The polarizing boss recently explained his feelings about the future of Cadillac in more depth on his Facebook page, but unfortunately only his friends could read it. Thankfully, Daily Kanban posted much of the strongly worded missive for the whole world to see.
Much of the message examines the decision to move some employees to New York. De Nysschen claims that it's all about giving Cadillac distance from Detroit to reshape itself. It allows for, "No distractions. No side shows. No cross-brand corporate considerations. No homogenized lowest common denominator approach. Just pure, unadulterated, CLASS."
