    Ric, are you a member of the Cadillac & La Salle Club? I used to be years ago before they modernized their website. You get a monthly magazine if you join which can be very helpful if the right car and topic is covered. Itís a very cool club. Iím considering rejoining if I get around to using my Cadillac again.
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    No but it sounds interesting... I think I may have seen some of their vids on YouTube many years ago maybe? It was some serious stuff, like lecture style gatherings where the dudes were going over most peoples heads. Lol. Does that sound like them?

    Very vague memories..

    I remember the Cadillac Connoisseur Club. Not sure if theyíre still alive. Are you familiar with that club?

    Iíd really like to join a Cadillac club of substance 1 day... For obvious reasons.. But Iíd also finally meet people whoíd appreciate my vast collection of Cadillac Automobilia. Youíd be hard pressed to find a museum with a collection that rivals mine.

    Do you know about my collection of original Cadillac brochures?

    Re: My new car: 2000 Cadillac DHS

    The only national Cadillac club Iím aware of is the Cadillac & La Salle Club. I never searched YouTube for them. Back when I was a member I got a useful magazine and the opportunity to go on meetups if I were in the area. The club consists of mostly older guys. Iím glad to see they modernized their website and they have a forum.

    I think your memorabilia collection would be greatly appreciated by the club. You may even find some other guys who collect it too. I remember you sharing it here.

    Along with Megs D114, D101 APC is the only other cleaning chemical that I always make sure to have 2 full bottles ready to go at all times. Always @10:1. I wouldnít be a ďdetailerĒ without it.

    WaxMaster! Great to see you! Ya know that you were the very 1st person I told when I bought this car? I didnít tell anyone else till nearly a whole day later.

    Iíll always remember you sending me ads of Cadillacs that were for sale that I might like, even if they were on the other side of the country, itís the thought that counts and I truly appreciated it. Thank you for being a great friend.My new car: 2000 Cadillac DHS

    That Brown Royal is on a whole nother level.

    It took me forever to finally quit being cheap and order the pillars. Lol. By shear luck they arrived from Korea in about a week, just in time to complete everything.My new car: 2000 Cadillac DHS [never have I seen a package from China/Asia arrive so fast]lol.

    Well thanks, but I almost feel like I canít take all the credit.. Reason being is Cadillacs come with pretty beefy carpet & matts that at least IMO seems to be extremely resilient and therefore clean up very good. Iíve never met a carpet or matt in a Caddy that didnít clean up like it supposed to. Or maybe itís just 1 of those deals where things seem to fall in place and work out.My new car: 2000 Cadillac DHS

    As is your norm, pro quality work through-and-through. Thank you for sharing!


    Thanks Mike. As I read your comment I canít help but think of the words that were repeatedly said to me the day I took the keys to this car... The original owner of this car had slowly developed a certain disease which had gotten to the point where he could no longer drive his vehicles, and speaking with his son this was the 1st one to part with because the others were classics and therefore going to take more time and thought..

    I met the owners son & daughter, both in their early 20ís once to test drive, and the 2nd meeting was to purchase the car. They seemed like cool people but conversation was mostly kept to exchanging the title, etc. so they obviously didnít know what my plans for the car would be.. The son kept telling me about how much his father loved this car and how he always took care of it just so I would keep that in mind... The whole time Iím just being respectful and sort of nervous excited also trying to get a true sense of the deal at hand.

    On the day I showed up to officially hand over the cash and get the keys he still didnít know much about me other than I lived 15-20min. away. As he handed me the keys and shook my hand he said ďalright man itís yours, please take care of my dads car and if you ever wanna sell it for whatever reason give me a call and give me the chance to buy it back no questions askedĒ

    His sister in the back said ďplease take care of my dads carĒ!

    With the keys finally in hand I slowly pointed at him as it began to sink in and I told him, ďyour dads car couldnít be going to a better home, if you only knewĒ
    ďTell him his car will be taken care ofĒ

    ...While cleaning out the tons of bits & debris out of the center console I found a tiny 1.5Ēx1.5Ē color photo of the son & daughter who sold me their fathers car.. Old picture as the girl looks to be about 4 and the son maybe 7yrs. old, just kids. Their father mustíve put that picture there maybe 15+yrs ago...

    Out of respect I still have the picture and put it in a safe place and Iíve thought about sending it to the sonís address in a years time from the date of purchase, just to let him know I found that pic and wanted to return it, but also to let him know his daddys car is being well taken care of with a couple pics of how it looks now.
