Yes,

I was on my way into town when these peoples in their Chevy Aveo was trying to give me a run ? Im not certain what they were thinking but of course I won !!! I was in total shock over it. Why would you try to race a car with a v8 with a tiny Engine: 1.6L E-TEC II DOHC four-cylinder Five speed .. hmmmm well after looking at the Chevy site I dont see anything about them offering this little car in a automatic ?

Michael,

They were probably just looking to blow off some old geezer in his old slow Cadillac. :P

You DID show them the error of that line of thought, didn't you? :rolleyes:

Most people don't know that modern Cadillacs are relatively QUICK for their size and "blingness" (understated). Going fast with class is what I say.

I am amazed at the number of people I run across that still think Cadillacs get 1970's fuel economy...

People don't believe me when I say I get 20/30 with my SLS. "From a Cadillac?!" they say. Yes, one with a 275 hp V8 engine. "Wow!"

When I tell people that my 94 SLS gets 24/28 on the highway, and better economy at 70 than 55, they think that I am just blowing smoke! <_<

What they can't deny is that the old SLS is QUICK!

:D

Just finished a 3500 mile road trip in my '06 DTS Performanve Sedan. From N Texas to the east coast then back to NW Virginia and a couple of hundred miles doen the Blue Ridge Parkway. Was a lot of fun.

On the way to S. Carolina, on !20, I had been following an Acura TSX at a pretty good clip. A guy in a BMW 3 series pulled out between us and was not going NEAR as fast as the girls in the TSX.

Got a clear space.. pulled over to ease around him, he was only going about 70.. he looked around .. saw the old gray headed guy in the Caddy.. and took off. At about 120 as I had already cleared him, he threw up his hans, smiled and backed off.

But he sure had a funny look on his face as the Caddy passed him and there wasn't anything he could DO about it.

Ditto Kevin, I constantly get comments about why are you driving that gas guzzler, when I walk them over and show them my average miles per gallon they are stunned... :lol:
