What a cool link! love the pics and background. Read the comments and some dude popped up stroking Lincolns over Caddy's and promptly got B-smacked.
The biggest problem Caddy had was the late 70's and 80's. I fully understand wanting to reduce emissions and up the mph but damn, The car industry had issues during that time. I would love a new Caddy but, my wife advised me that 1 Caddy is all I need so it's my 71 Eldo. Ever since I taught that woman how to shoot a pistol I have tried to be a better man and remain a Chevy owner.  :)

You need to get HER one, then you can get a daily driving Cadillac that is the same year or earlier than her for yourself  My wife's car is always newer than mine even if only by a month.

My wifes' car is always newer than mine, but it is still at least 10 years old, or more.   My daily driver is 18 years old.   Got to love depreciation which is how I can afford to buy cars.   My other daily driver, the Cadillac is 48 years old.   Even my "parts getter" is 50 years old.

Those are two 2011 CTSs in the posted pic. so, both 9 years old. Granted they are both identical premium ed sedans with every option except the summer tire performance package and the block heater. Mine, the red one, is older but only by 1 month. Afghan campaign plates are 1 digit off.
