  1. Received this query in email: I have a 1961 caddy series 62 with a GM crate 502 and a GM 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission. I would like to get some info on swapping out that engine for something with a little better mpg. I have the original front end which was recently replaced with factory parts. Can you suggest a engine that would fit? I bought it as a retirement gift and I drive it most every day. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  2. I should also mention, BBCODE has been deprecated (support has been removed) in the new forum. The thinking is the html gadgets in the message editor replace the need for BBCODE.
  3. 10/26/2020 - Monday - I have updated the forum software to the most recent update. I see some issues to consider such as the header image but please let me know if you see anything odd or not working.
  4. In comments poster notes that he apparently had inadvertently bent heat shield during a previous repair. Good that he isolated & fixed it though.

  6. Three in-house speed shops glue their badges on their brands' smallest sedans. https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/comparison-test/a34304375/2020-bmw-m235i-gran-coupe-vs-cadillac-ct4-v-mercedes-amg-a35/ "Is that the one with the Corvette engine?" The guy admiring the candy-red Cadillac wants to know if he's in the presence of the mighty 640-hp CTS-V. Not quite, friend. This is the one with the four-cylinder truck engine. "Oh. Well, I'm sure it's still fast." That passing interaction perfectly captures why the Cadillac CT4-V, the BMW M235i Gran Coupe, and the Me
  7. No dialog, but lots of shots of Cadillacs as Southern California chapters of the Cadillac Kings global car club brings the family together for an amazing day at Yorba Linda Regional Park in Yorba Linda, California!
  8. I think the CT5-V is a nice car suffering from being mis-branded. If it were the CT5 Premium or CT5 VSport it would be well received.
  9. A pretty quick car, but not a very quick car. I agree both the CT4 and CT5 (and my ATS-V btw) should have had the lovely all-digital display from the VSport Premium models. I believe Cadillac is updating this in future models 21+.
  10. My Arabic is limited to a few words, but one can more or less tell what is going on in this comparison. I posted this comment: the 0-100 km time for the CT4-V of 00:08:02 is way off what Cadillac claims for this model (0-60 mph in 3.8s). The CT5-V was slightly off its expected pace, but not nearly as much. Assuming nothing mechanically was wrong with the CT4-V, perhaps the 45C/113F heat had a greater impact on the CT4-V than the CT5-V?
  11. Imagine sitting in a CT5-V for 15 min talking about every detail. This is that video.
  12. Matt selects AWD and wishes he asked for RWD, then sets the brakes on fire. #thesmokingbrake
  13. Our 7th episode of Rotta STORIES is here, sit back and feast your eyes with this 30s classic beauty when Cadillac decided to go all in with this! Meet Hans Emerén a Swedish retired in Gozo and his last nut & bolt restoration (although he’s sure this isn’t the case 😅) of his 1930 Cadillac All Weather Phaeton V16 which originally started out as a commissioned project.
  14. A Cadillac V-Series model has always been the pinnacle of any performance Cadillac. Unfortunately, for 2020, the company has decided to make their V-series models a bit more approachable and this all-new #CadillacCT5V is supposed to be the company's answer to the Audi S4, BMW M340i, and Mercedes-AMG C43. It pairs a twin-turbo V6 with a new 10-speed transmission with standard rear or available AWD. While the #CT5V does not have the bonkers power or even as much power as the old CTS V-Sport, the #CadillacCT5 is significantly less expensive than the old #Cadillac #CTS and offers far more interior
  15. I assume you have tried adjusting the dash brightness?
  16. https://www.inquirer.com/cars/2020-cadillac-ct4-review-fun-grandpa-car-20200904.html Conventional wisdom: Car and Driver likes the “sharp styling, playful driving dynamics, optional engine is strong and efficient,” but not the “tight cabin, unexceptional interior materials, sometimes clumsy 10-speed automatic.”
  17. https://www.blackenterprise.com/meet-the-black-interior-designer-behind-gms-first-fully-electric-cadillac-suv/ “When you are given the opportunity to open the door for Lyriq — everything that you interact with, whether it be touch, explore, or discover — I led several teams that go into that experience,” says Windham, who joined GM back in 1994. More than a decade later, she was named as the first African American woman Director of Interior Design in GM’s history in 2008.
