Welcome to the Cadillac V-Series Forums!

Roll Call

OK, @Chop has the baddest profile banner of anyone on here, maybe anyone ever. That is downright filthy, in the BEST possible way! Thank you for your service!
JC, my job is boring!!!! LOL.
 
New guys check in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, ok!!! HI!!! What's up? I'm Badillac :cool:Not brand new to the site, but so freaking happy to finally being a new BW owner... almost. Flying to my dealer in MI next week to do the paperwork, $ already sent so technically it's mine!! I've been on here admiring and appreciating everyone's pics/shared info/ect. in the meantime.
Got me an electric blue CT5 MT, black wheels, sunroof, PDR, mid-level seats, unfortunately no CF available.

Order placed 4/12. Produced 6/16. To dealership 9/14 (Note: dealer is only 1.5hr from factory!). chip shortage.... MSRP baby!!!! My dealer & saleguy have been great! Will add more info & pic to the appropriate threads later.

Nice meeting you!
 
I'll try to get things back on track. I'm a 59 year old somewhat introverted retired police officer and certified car and motorcycle nut. Never married. No kids. Retired at 47 though my intention was to continue working elsewhere. It just never happened. I don't collect watches but I do collect and drink bourbon. I also enjoy fine cigars.
Current cars in the stable include 1966 Corvette conv 427/390, 2006 Porsche Carrera S and 2018 Chevy Silverado WT, 2006 Ducati Paul Smart, 2017 Roadglide Special
Past vehicles of note include 1968 Roadrunner, 1969 GTX, 1987 Grand National, 2003 350Z, 2006 Lotus Elise, 2007 Shelby GT
With any luck I'll be adding a 2023 CT4 Blackwing to the stable soon. It's built. Just a waiting game now.
 
I'll take a swing...Tim, 58yrs old. Born in Fort Worth. Spent most of my adult life bouncing between Dallas, Boston and Southern NH. Retired from investment management at the end of 2019. Was and forever will be the best timed decision of my life (dumb luck)! No days full of Zoom meetings for me.

Currently split time between MA and Sanibel, FL. Not in FL yet, as we are still waiting for power to be restored to our house post hurricane Ian.

My love of cars came from my dad and mom. She had a 1978 Z28 which is what I learned to drive in. Three adult kids. Girls couldn't care less about cars, but our son caught my affliction. Currently drives a 2018 Camaro SS 1LE.

Future cars
5BW 6M at order status 3400. TPW 10/3/22 (WTF, its mid Nov?!?!)
2023/4 (fingers crossed) Vette Z06. High 200s on the MacMulkin list

Notable past cars
2000 Vette vert, Torch red of course
2005 Vette vert
2013 Vette 427 vert (totaled in the storm, sadly. Loved that LS7!!)
2013 Audi S7 (one of my faves)
2015 Audi RS5 (wife's, if I'm being honest)

Numerous F150s (I AM a Texan, after all)

Glad to be a part of this site. Good info and good folks, it seems. Been watching for a few months. Finally joined when my order got picked up.

I am 37 years old, lived in Florida my whole life. Born and raised in Pensacola, went to college at Florida State in Tallahassee, and then took a job in Tampa where I've been for the last 13 years. I am a civil engineer by degree but have worked my way into construction project management and currently work for one of the local power companies. Been married for 8 years. My wife works for a large corporation as an accounting manager. We are DINKs, and several years ago got turned on to Dave Ramsey. We are now 100% debt free (including our home) which has afforded me the opportunity to place an order for a CT4V Blackwing. Funny thing is my wife had to convince me to make this purchase because this is one of the larger expenditures of my life, and I struggled mentally with it for quite some time. I submitted the order to Sewell of Dallas on 10/8, currently sitting in 1100. While I wait, I'm enjoying the education I receive from this forum and thankful to be a part of the community.

I adopted an aussie over the summer. She's still learning what it means to be a dog after 5 years of abuse with the breeder. Great choices.

1964 GTO convertible, Great car !! I had a 69 convertible and a 70 fully restored but had to sell them for the divorce after 32 years. She decided to go out to the bars and screw around all the while we were planning my retirement and a cruise. Of course, in California the women end up with everything. So my divorce present was my CT5 & CT4 Blackwings.
 
Damon Stewart here, 47 but act 32. Born and raised in Phoenix AZ, but have been living and working in the Los Angeles area since 2001. Worked in broadcasting as an engineer with CBS most of my career, now the Chief Engineer of six LA Radio Stations, KROQ, KTWV, KRTH, KCBS, KNX-AM, KNX-FM.

Been fascinated with electronics and everything mechanical since I was a kid, had my Ham radio license at 9. Started riding dirt bikes when I was 5 and have over 21 motorcycles over the years. Road raced motorcycles for about 5 years and had expert licenses with WSMC, CVMA and USBA. Still have two of my old race bikes in the garage. 51 was my old race number with all three clubs.

Mostly ride peddle bikes now, road cycling, mountain biking, gravel biking, ride 75-150 miles a week. My first car was a 1976 Corvette which I built a few engines for, drag raced it a bunch when I was a teen. The 4BW is my first car in over 20 years, only had trucks and motorcycles since. Still trying to learn how to fall in and climb out.

Met my wife in 2006 in Long Beach, we moved to the mountains north of Los Angeles in 2007, been making the 125mile/day commute to work in down town LA since. But I love where I live and I cant find anyone to pay me more to do less, so it is what it is. My wife is the farmer, horses, dogs, chickens, she wants a pig, goats and about every other animal you can think of but out of room for more at this point. The next house will have more land and NOT in CA. She had two girls when I met her, they are both in their 20's now and off doing their things. Our kid at the moment is a 3 year old female Belgian Malinois and we love her crazy ass.
