At this rate we (I and perhaps others) will be asking to look at *your* Blackwing once you get it, before ours come in! :)

Who did u order from?

Lee Ellis Cadillac, over on Peachtree Industrial. You?

Capitol Cadillac (much closer to me) didn't seem terribly interested. I missed the opportunity to reserve a 2021, but I filled out the online form with them as my dealer. They got back to me. I went in and talked to them, sat in a CT4 and CT5 (CT4 was too small), drove a CT5-V (even though it was an automatic) just to make sure the interior was good (let's just say Cadillac interiors have come a long way) and I fit okay when driving. I said, "Let me know as soon as I can order a 2022." I've e-mailed my contact a few times, just to stay in touch about ordering a 2022 when possible. Haven't heard from them, figured that it wasn't possible to order a 2022 yet. Apparently that wasn't the case...

When out running some other errands I stopped by Jim Ellis on a lark and got a very different response. General manager talked with me, said he would check and get back to me the following Monday. I e-mailed my build from B&P. He talked to his zone rep, said they could take an order now. So I came in and finalized the order less than a week after first talking to them. Just a much better vibe.

I've had a few times in my life when I felt the "this is a special vehicle" vibe, and I didn't act. I had a chance to buy a lightly used RC30 in the early 90s, but I bought a "normal" VFR (which I still own). And I should have bought an Integra Type R in the late 90s, but I already had a "normal" Integra (which I still own). So when Jim Ellis Cadillac said you can place an order now I went with it.

The stealerships that are charging way over msrp and some that are adding on extra packages can kiss my ass
