It HAS to be poetic license... According to Wikipedia, both Chevrolet and Cadillac stuck to V8s and never experimented with I8s... Only Oldsmobile and Buick had them I believe.

You know... Like when someone adds something inaccurate/exaggerated into a song/poem to make it rhyme/flow better...

"All eight cylinders are firin' in line,

I'm never out of gas and I'm always on time"

after listening to the song, this part is a sexual double entendre... it's not really about a Cadillac at all.

look at the lines prior to it.

Around 10:30 she puts me in drive

turns the lights down low and man alive

All eight cylinders are firin' in a line,

I'm never out of gas and I'm always on time.

hrmm never thought of it like that

although in the lyrics it never says "lights down low"

Well, I ain't Burt Reynolds and I ain't Tom Selleck;

I got bills up the pike and my car's an old relic.

I get Chevrolet pay but I've got a big smile

'Cause my little Baby loves me Cadillac style!

Well, I don't have a condo in Panama City.

You could say I'm a member of the Poor Boy Commitee.

But I kinda feel rich when I've been with her a while

'Cause my little Baby loves me Cadillac style!

Well, about ten thirty, Lord, she puts me in drive,

Turns all the lights down and man, alive!

All eight cylinders are firin' in line,

I'm never out of gas and I'm always on time!

Well, I ain't Goldfinger and I ain't Joe Fashion

And you can't buy much with the checks I'm cashin'.

So, people, if you wonder why I'm a-ridin' with a smile

It's 'cause my little Baby loves me Cadillac Style.

Well, about ten thirty, Lord, she puts me in drive

Turns all the lights down and man, alive!

All eight cylinders are firin' in line,

I'm never out of gas and I'm always on time!

Well, I ain't Goldfinger and I ain't Joe Fashion,

And you can't buy much with the checks I'm cashin'.

So, people, if you wonder why I'm a-ridin' with a smile,

It's 'cause my little Baby loves me Cadillac style.

Yeah, my little Baby loves me Cadillac Style!

Well, my little Baby loves me Cadillac style

guess he's sleeping around, but still gets back to his wife ontime?

when he said well my little bably loves me... thought he was refering to his car... but who knows

About the line of all 8 firing in line, it doesn't necessarily mean and in-line 8. "In line" can be interpreted as "in order" or "in sequence".

And as alluded to above: no I-8 Cadillacs, ever.

i guess the closest it comes is the companion marque of Cadillac, LaSalle... 34-36 with a straight 8... not sure if straight and inline are the same but i'm guessing...

I hope you don't feel bad about not understanding it at first ... I know sometimes I don't quite understand lyrics for a while, until I actually see them ... and then sometimes, not even then.
