Since most of us are under "stay home" or "lockdown" orders, my wife decided that I needed something to do besides watch TV. She decided that I needed to wash, clay bar and wax the Tuna Sport and Speed Wagon.
Here's the results.
C-Magic car wash soap, Clay Magic clay bar (fine), C-Magic Wax...
It's been a while since Speed Wagon was on a road trip, so it was time to stretch it's legs. My wife and I took Speed Wagon to Midland, TX to see the Permian Basin Petroleum Museum and to see the Chaparral 2J run. The museum houses Jim Hall's collection of Chaparral sports racing cars and one...

Over the weekend, I noticed that the intercooler coolant was a little low. So I added some. Only to have some of it leak out under the nose of the V Wagon.
I get down on my hands and knees and I see that the intercooler radiator is wet on the bottom.
So, the V Wagon is at my favorite...
Even though my V Wagon never gets much time off, it hasn't been cleaned properly since winter set in last year. So, today was cleaning day. Washed it, vacuumed it, checked it over.
Here are some pictures to prove it.

My little red V Wagon is 7 years old today.
I ordered it in September of 2010. It was delivered to my dealer December 6th of that year and I drove it home on Pearl Harbor Day 2010.
It's got a little less than 40,000 miles on it now and I'm still enjoying every drive in it. With the...
It's V-Day in Yukon, OK today. I took the Little Red V-Wagon out for a little shopping trip and saw 2 more V2's along he way - A black V-sedan and a black V-coupe.
If you were in Yukon today just after 3 PM, I waved at you. (I think the driver of the coupe waved but wasn't sure.)
My little red Vagon is going to the dealer today for its 40,000 mile check up - fluids, brake pads, alignment, balance, etc.
Six years and 10 months old and the V Wagon has been one of the best muscle cars I've ever owned. Routine maintenance, tires and gas.
Time to treat it to a little TLC.
My local Cadillac dealership had a little gathering of V-cars and others today. Here's a few pictures:
My V-Wagon and an STS V.
4 V-wagons - the forth is there just hard to see. My red '11 wagon, a black '13, a white '13 and another black '13.
V2 Wagon (mine), V2 sedan, V3 sedan and ATS V...
