Session 3 Saturday, taking buddy and fellow instructor Dave around for his
first trip on Daytona. Had to go High in Nascar 1 & 2 due to traffic and
then caught a Vette. The Vette didn't understand the physics of a car that
wasn't previously in the mirror constantly re-appearing.

For those who wanted to go really fast and be coddled while doing it,
Cadillac created the XLR-V convertible, which was produced from 2006 to
2009. The V at the end of the car's moniker indicated that it was a
performance variant of Cadillac's XLR, but it could've easily stood for
viciously quick and very luxurious.
Viciously quick came courtesy of this Cadillac's supercharged V8, which
could send you hurtling from zero to 60 in less than 5 seconds. Taking a
cue from European ultraluxury manufacturers, Cadillac gave each V8 a
personal touch, with each being built from start to finish by a single
craftsman. Very luxurious was the end result of the wealth of standard
features that came on the Cadillac XLR-V roadster. Adaptive cruise control,
heated steering wheel, head-up display and a voice-activated navigation
system are just a few examples of the latter.
Unfortunately, the XLR-V just didn't stack up to its similarly priced
rivals from Germany, Britain and even within General Motors itself. The
XLR-V may have been vicious, but it lacked the slick handling, high levels
of refinement and interior furnishings others offered.
Most Recent Cadillac XLR-V
Designed to facilitate wind-tousled tresses and sun-kissed cheeks, the
Cadillac XLR-V was available only as a two-seat convertible with a
retractable hardtop. Aside from its high-performance innards, this special
XLR was distinguished from its less spirited sibling by a unique front
grille and a sculpted hood designed to accommodate the 443-horsepower V8's Supercharger. Sent to the rear wheels via a
manually shiftable six-speed automatic, all that thrust was good enough to
catapult the XLR-V to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds.
The XLR-V came one way -- fully loaded and was essentially unchanged during
its four-year production run. Perks like Bluetooth phone connectivity,
heated leather seats and adaptive cruise control were all standard. The
XLR-V's power-retractable hardtop could go from closed to open (and
vice-versa) in about 30 seconds. Though the XLR-V's interior was
attractive, trimmed with gleaming aluminum accents and burnished exotic
wood, it was still subpar compared to its similarly priced rivals. Also,
the cockpit was somewhat tight for taller drivers and cargo room was
limited as well.
During our time in the XLR-V, we found ourselves swept away on a wave of
raw power as the XLR was eager to leap to attention at the slightest tap of
the throttle. Its Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension was tuned to be
sportier than it was on the standard XLR and indeed provided sharper
handling seemingly with no penalty in ride comfort. But compared to its
more athletic and refined European rivals, the XLR-V still came up a bit
short as its steering was overly heavy and its handling wasn't as agile.
134296 / 1970 Cadillac DeVille
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/qghjtdo
Mixing one of the biggest and smoothest V8s GM ever produced with
mirror-like paint and a spacious, comfortable interior, this classy DeVille
puts a new twist on 'Standard of The World'. And if you've always dreamed
of owning a big American cruiser that's high on style and loaded with
comfort, it's just the opportunity you've been waiting for!
Not completely devoid of character, like so many traditional, frame-off
restorations, this road-ready drop-top is an exhilarating combination of
factory-correct blitz and tasteful glam. Appearing both solemn and
official, its Jet Black paint reflects an excellent shine that literally
glows when crouching under the sun. And that modern two-stage covers what
appears to be clean, mostly original sheetmetal which displays no sign of
botched repairs or historic damage.
Cadillac, once the world's leading proprietor of fine, 16-cylinder motor
coaches, knows a thing or two about performance. For example, this
convertible's correct, 472 cubic inch monster block, which is one of the
largest V8s ever produced, turns stout 10 to 1 compression into a smooth
And while GM Powertrain did provide engines that generated more power, this
mill was designed to idle silently, create instantaneous thrust and emit
merely a whisper from its tailpipe. Judging by the appearance of the car's
satin black bay, it's been on a regular maintenance schedule, benefitting
from periodic, full-scale detailing. Many of the motor's original ancillary
items have been replaced by flashier hardware including: a chrome,
single-snorkel air cleaner, chrome valve covers, a polished radiator
overflow and an HEI distributor that's complete with 8mm Hi Temp wires. And
thanks to two Optima gel cell batteries, the car fires so smoothly you may
not even notice it's running.
Behind that big engine, an original turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed spins a traditional
GM 12-bolt that's complete with smooth 2.98 gears. Speaking of smooth, the
car's long and low suspension, which is augmented with Air Ride
Technologies air bags, glides over almost any imperfection with virtually
no drama. And all that proven hardware rolls on slick Centerline Smoothies
which spin 245/40R20 Firestone Firehawks around detailed Cadillac crests.
If you're a fan of big time comfort, you'll be absolutely thrilled by this
DeVille's custom black interior! The '63 Cadillac front and chopped rear
seats are firm, supple and display virtually no signs of aging. In front of
those half power, half manual seats, a modernist, crack-free dash hangs a
contoured instrument panel between a billet mirror, a modern Pioneer CD
player, controls for the car's Air Ride Technologies suspension and
chrome-trimmed foot pedals. In front of the driver, a custom '59 Cadillac
steering wheel spins a chrome horn ring around a tilting column and simple
chrome gear selector. And behind the passengers, a Dynamat-lined trunk
seals a giant subwoofer behind a Pioneer CD changer, two JL Audio amps, a
small bass tube, a fifth Centerline/Firestone combo and a small, South
County Customs jack.
This DeVille is an extremely high-quality cruiser with no question marks
attached. Don't miss your opportunity to own one of the coolest Caddys on
the planet! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today.

This is a follow up to the earlier 1909 Cadillac first start. Bob took his
first drive in his 1909 Cadillac Model 30 touring September 1, 2013. He has
owned this car for and been working on the restoration on and off for 46
years. The last time this Cadillac drive under its own power was in 1933,
80 years ago.
There are still some bugs to work out, but it moves!.
Update, this is the first actual drive for Bob's Cadillac. For the original
first start of the engine see the other video at
2008 Cadillac XLR-V Convertible Roadster A2617
The Cadillac brand is one of the most notable American icons with its long
line of noteworthy automobiles. Since its inception over 100 years ago,
Cadillac has been a pioneer in the industry with its innovative engines and
world class luxury. Fitting in with the legacy that Cadillac has
established is your new Black Raven 2008 Cadillac XLR-V. This awesome piece
of machinery features an incredibly muscular 4.4L 443 horsepower V8 engine with
414 lb-ft of torque. If you're interested in this car, then you've likely
already heard about or experienced the sheer exhilaration that comes from
just tapping the gas pedal. It is awesome. Plus with navigation, heated
seats, Bose stereo, XM satellite radio, rear park assist, and head up
display you'll have tons of convenience features to get you where you want
not only quickly but also comfortably. This is a truly impressive vehicle.
Let's take a closer examination of your new Cadillac XLR-V.
EXTERIOR: The BLACK RAVEN paint is in clean, shiny condition and the color
does an excellent job highlighting the sweeping roofline and
well-sculptured frame of this refined, high-end automobile! When you see
the V badges you will know you are about to drive one remarkable machine.
The 443 horsepower
engine is responsive and extremely powerful with its 4.4L liter
displacement and six-speed automatic transmission. It will likely be
difficult for you to avoid giving the car plenty of juice just because of
the wonderful growl that escapes the Exhaust and the spectacular connection between
driver and road. Let's not forget that this is a convertible! The power
hard top goes up and down with ease. To help you see where you're going,
the XLR-V is outfitted with HID head lamps with washers and Twilight
Sentinel. An additional safety feature are the fog lamps. The aggressive
and stunning look of the car is emphasized by the 19" wheels with
accompanying tires in good condition! These wheels along with the
performance tuned suspension help to improve the already outstanding
handling so much that you will be begging for curves. This is truly one
fine looking car. It also comes with the remainder of its four year/50,000
mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and five year/60,000 mile powertrain
INTERIOR: When you enter the cabin of this automobile, you'll immediately
understand why the XLR-V is one of the nicest American sport convertibles.
The EBONY leather bucket seats are in great condition as are the matching
mats and carpet. The seats feature eight way adjustment so that you will be
completely stable and comfortable. The leather also carries over to the
tilt steering wheel which has controls for the Driver Information Center
and cruise control. Helping you stay comfortable on chilly days, you'll
love the dual heated seats to keep you toasty. The navigation system is
spectacular and will assist you in reaching your destinations easily and
quickly. This unit also controls the Bose premium sound system which
includes AM/FM stereo, six disc CD changer, and nine speakers. With the
keyless ignition system, you can leave your key in your pocket and still
start the car. The vehicle will detect the key and with just the push of a
button the engine will roar to life. Thanks to the rear park assist system,
you will have audible alerts to what is behind you to help you avoid
needlessly backing into things that may be just outside of your normal
view. The Head Up display will certainly come in handy. You wont have to
take your eyes off the road to keep tabs on how fast you're driving. A
convenient read-out will reflect right onto the windshield so you'll always
be in the know. What awesome features! Some other great assets in your new
XLR-V are: dual climate control, tire pressure monitor system, power locks,
power windows, cruise control, V-series trim, universal garage door
transmitter, and cup holders. Your car also comes with factory mats, books,
and one key.
We invite you to enjoy perusing the many photos herein listed to get to
know your new XLR-V better. Remember, this is a used car. Although it is in
great shape, it will show some minor signs of wear. Consider also the great
savings you will have in purchasing a pre-owned automobile. This car
retailed new around $100,000! You will definitely enjoy paying thousands of
dollars less on this car which is still in fantastic condition.
Congratulations on making such a wise decision to own a car included in a
long legacy of fantastic cars with your new Cadillac XLR-V.

2004 Cadillac XLR Retractable Hardtop Convertible
I thought you'd like a look at this beautiful 2004 Cadillac XLR. It is a
convertible that features a very cool retractable hardtop. This car was
built for performance and comfort. The exterior is painted in Crimson Pearl
with a black leather interior. The XLR was built on the same platform as
the Corvette but had a $30k premium over the Corvette. This car is powered
by Cadillac's Northstar 32 valve V8 with 320 h.p. mated to a 5 speed
automatic transmission. This combination will give you 25 mpg on the
highway. The XLR has only 42,000 original miles with less than 1k miles on
the new tires. This car has power everything! Options include: Power
Windows, Power Locks, Power Heated Seats, AM/FM/CD player, GPS and Push
Button start to name a few. For some fun in the sun all this Caddy asks for
is a touch of a button and the Power Retractable hard top disappears!
Thanks for taking a look!
