Cadillac asks this question: When you turn your car on, does it return the favor?

I may not have a Cadillac, but my Monte Carlos return the favor ... even when they are not on....


I've taken some new pics recently of each of my MCs...chose the "best" of them...and Ray B put 'em on the site for me. The following are samples of what I took...MORE are, of course, on the website....

So...how about you? Do your car(s) return the favor driving and just by looking at 'em?

Great series of pics......love the ones from your 7/26 gathering the best.

Gotta say the 'bu returns the favor in spades. For such a tiny engine, the 2.4L has some balls and in certain instances, can handle like it's on rails.......spent the morning taking pics in the park as well, those really did bring the visual aspect home. Dare I say it that the new 'bu looks better than the new CTS? :eek:

LOL! That's going out on a limb, there, EF ;). But, I agree...I really like that new malibu (saw your pics...awesome, btw)...but...I won't buy it because it is FWD...I want RWD ;).

And, thank you...glad you enjoyed the pics!

Yes, very nice display Cort, though I'll admit I was utterly disappointed with your "Threesome" link. :p:

I love your black MC.

And yes, my car (Victoria) does light my fire, regardless of her short comings. My daughter even talks to her now and says my car has a pretty name.

Hey mikmak,

Thanks...glad you enjoyed the pics...and I appreciate the compliment on the '76!

I wondered if anyone would pick up on the "threesome" reference ... and be a bit disappointed ;).

Your daughter talks to your car? he he...is it like father like daughter?

.....and I thought I took too many pics :p:

Is always great to loose oneself in a giant photo album. I remember that burgundy colored Cadillac from one of your previous trips there........(sometime in '06 or was it '07?)

Amen. Looking through older pics is great fun, too.

It was the November 2007 trip...but, the Caddy is Cinnamon brown, not burgundy ;).
