    Crimes Against Cadillac

    $8,000 in "upgrades," as seen at Rick Hendrick Colonial Cadillac in Norfolk, VA. They consist of the cloth roof, gold package, and Vogue wheels and tires.

    Can anyone tell me how to make the picture big and how to attach multiple photos? I used to be able to do it before the redesign here on GMI.

    Gross. Landau top and the big wheels with yellow strip low profiles on a CTS Coupe! Not for me.

    That's what I used to be able to do, but it doesn't seem to work for me anymore. The photo above is linked from my Photobucket account. In the past, I would go to "insert image," drop in the link for each a photo, and the photo would show up. I could do that same process multiple times for multiple photos Now, it seems like I can only link to one photo.

    I'm having the same issues with Photobucket sharing. One pic at a time only, and it attaches here as a thumbnail.

    This is a test from my photobucket account. Also showing off today's deep clean and wax job if it works.

    I Clicked on a photo. Clicked Share. Clicked Link code. Went down to the share forums. Had to capture the whole line by highlighting it instead of just clicking over it. Pasted the copy on this message reply. Repeat until done.

    I am having a hard time keeping my lunch down, what is that travesty and how can we have the person flagellated in public who was responsible for it?
    I want a car so violent that the mere thought of full throttle would cause a heart attack. That actually going wide open throttle in would result in nothing less than instant death!

    Have you seen your seat covers there arbiter d' Elegance? Under "color" on the package did it read Victorian Whorehouse Red?

    Re: Crimes Against Cadillac

    I like some color in my interior which it was lacking. It matches the exterior pretty well. The quote to the supplier was "I would like the Burgandy color Neo-Diamond Front Car Seat Covers" If that is whorehouse red for you, pimptastic then.

    They are trying to dress a sport car in Old Man Cadillac and Buick accessories. If they sell it and make money good for them.

    Re: Crimes Against Cadillac

    What's interesting is that the "Dealer to whom delivered" is not the dealer where I saw the car. It was delivered to a dealer in Sagninaw, MI, so I'm wondering if the VA dealer pimped it out or consciously bought it that way from the other dealer.

    You are most welcome. I have seen several DTS with vogues here in Northern Virginia. I also pointed out a white diamond Lucerne to my wife sporting an olive green landau on the road yesterday.

    Can landau tops be undone or are they permanent once attached? At least I can undo my seatcovers as they are slip ons (with velcro and tie-downs) for trade in or sale some day. I have been thinking about getting some custom leather once the car is paid off in a couple of years.

    I dunno, I almost found out, I had a chance to get an "almost free" Buick Somerset with a dealer add on landau top, there was a little rust starting at the base, and I hated how it looked on hat car, so I would have had to remove it, but I wondered how it would look under there.

    I had a quarter Landau on my second teenage car, a 1979 Chrysler LeBaron. This photo is even the right cop car brown color I had too. It was factory though.

    On shows like "Overhaulin'," I've seen them remove padded vinyl roofs, but I've never seen one of these pseudo convertible tops removed. Not sure if it would be be the same kind of thing.
