1990 Cadillac Fleetwood on 2040-cars
Shakopee, Minnesota, United States
Engine blown, looks like the head gasket needs replacement. Won't start as water has gotten into the oil. Still turns over. Battery was replaced this year with a top of the line silver diehard from Sears. On first notice of an engine problem I saw the check engine light and pulled the car over looking under the hood the water levels were low. Replaced the radiator to try to fix the problem. Appears the heater core also needs to be replaced. Needs engine work. The body is in great condition with no rust. Leather seats have no rips. Car is sitting inside my garage staying rust free! Drove it for almost a year and loved every bit of the experience, has cigarette lighters in the front and back and feels like a miniature limousine. The back windshield is tinted. 10 disc cartridge CD player in trunk wired into radio up front with remote. Air conditioning still works and has an alarm system, if doors are opened once the power locks are set (like if you left the window down and opened through that opening) the horn honks. And the horn is a nice american style low loud horn and yells move out of the way. The brakes work but the anti-lock brake light comes on. Cruise control works. This ride has the 'continental kit' in the back (the spare tire looking part) which is very cool. Hope new life can be put back into this great ride!

One of the biggest challenges automakers face when designing a high-performance car is making sure that it is both fast and reliable. For General Motors, any car that might be taken to the track by its owner - like the Corvette, Camaro Z/28 (shown above) and the Cadillac CTS-V, for example - undergoes a rigorous and strenuous 24-hour test by engineers at the Milford Proving Grounds, as pointed out by Car and Driver.

We've posted on this topic in the past - on a video showing the Camaro ZL1 being brutalized, for instance - but this article gives a more in-depth look at what actually happens behind the scenes... including what that poor ZL1 went through. Though the test isn't for 24 hours straight, the cars are pushed as hard as possible by some of GM's best drivers with only the brakes and tires replaced frequently.
We don't want to ruin the fun for you, but it is an interesting article that tells just some of what GM does to develop its sports cars. Check out the full article over at Car and Driver for the rest of the story.
What we do know is that the ATS will wear at least one more bodystyle. That comes from Cadillac head Bob Ferguson, who answered "Absolutely" when Automotive News asked him about the possibility of another variant. What we don't know is what that bodystyle or styles will be.

We now have a sedan and coupe ATS, there's supposedly a V sedan coming. After that, a convertible is a likely option given that the man who just became the global product honcho at General Motors, Mark Reuss, admitted to having one already designed in 2012. The decision on it can't get out of the underworld and a wagon is the other option, but the droptop would seem to make the most sense if one considers the competitive set: the BMW 4 Series and Audi A5 convertibles are hot property and Mercedes is bringing a C-Class convertible. Meanwhile wagons are the sentimental utility vehicles that, refusing to die, seem forever destined for life support... CTS Sport Wagon, anyone?
Based on Ferguson's statements, it appears that what Cadillac definitely won't do is play model variant catch-up with the European luxury brands it has spent years hunting down, telling Automotive News, "We want to keep our focus on a limited number of vehicles and do them very well."
"We're going to take it to a place [New York] to change the way that we do business around the brand of Cadillac." - Mark Reuss
General Motors product chief Mark Reuss elaborated Tuesday on Cadillac's move to New York in 2015, saying it will "elevate" the brand and allow it to reach new customers.
