Great story from 2007

Recommended Posts

It is really well written and reminded me of how much fun being a journalist can be. When I get home tonight, I will be watching the videos.

wowww...these guys are loaded to the teeth with anti-cop gear. And the description of the battle-station-red cockpit. And the close calls, and the weaving through the 10....jeez. This guy bloody well IS Captain Picard, with a quite a lot of Kirk thrown in.

Great write up! Best thing I've read in years.

Should create a Keys-Seattle run. Longest distance in continental United States.

So true that would be freakin awesome race. Course with the way the political correct morons are going with hiring cops to focus on telling everyone how to drive and when I doubt we will ever really see crazy races like this any more.

Notice they were not driving a painted pearl performance Cadillac ... and people ask why The ATS is important and why does the 2.0L turbo needs to be standard. The ATS needs to be the beginning of removing Caddy from dulldrums of the sales force selling pearl paint as a performance option.

Point is ............ the person in that made this run never once thought of using a Caddy. It's likely he has ever been in a Caddy store. The only Caddy he may be aware of is his GrandMa's pearl white Sedan Deville. Caddy needs this ATS to be a sold well built performer thats not going to start on fire while sitting in it's parking space, ie Cruze.

1.) paint is NOT a performance option.

2.) The ATS wasn't around in 2007, when this run took place. it's technically not around yet now.

3.) What in blazes does the ATS, or any Cadillac, have to do with this run in the first place? He drove a BMW. So what? U mad bro?

4.) You wanna buy an ATS and beat this record? Be my guest.

Just appreciate the story for what it is and what was accomplished FFS.

You don't get it so you state the obvious. You that OLD man. To bad you can't see the forest for the trees.

WTH are you blathering on about? The article was about a cross country drive in an M5 in 2007..it has nothing to do with Cadillac. Are you in the wrong thread?

It was a GREAT run across the U.S. in a Diving Machine. Something Caddy has needed for 30 years. I hope the ATS gets Caddy going in the right direction because the DeVille, DTS, and XTS buyers are dropping like flies.

Forest for the trees .............. can you see?

I can see what you're saying.

Yes, Cadillac has needed the ATS..

wait, 'scuze me, allow me to answer as needlessly scathing as you did

I

can

seeeeee

what

you

are saaaaaayiiiing.

Yes,

Cadillac

has

needed

the

ATS

for

years,

quite

possibly

decades.

However,

I

don't

quite

understand,

nor

does

anyone

else,

why

you

decided

to

rant

about

this

here,

when

this

has

nothing

to

do

with

the

topic

at

hand.

you seeing my trees now?
