    I got my ass handed to me this morning by a white haired older lady in a new cadillac cts. She kept speeding up and slowing down in the left lane and I was in a hury and there was traffic on the right. She finally passed the big truck and got over in the right lane. I pullled on side and looked over and shook my head, she was on the PHONE. This is funny as hell, she looked at me dead serious, gave me the wrinkled youre #1 wave and floored it. I did not have a chance as I was in the lil 1.8L commuter. Couldn't catch up even if I was fred flintstonein it to help. Why does this kind of shit never happen when I am in my truck. Oh well, I figured it would make one hell of a first kill story.

    Caddy CTS, even if you were in your truck I don't think you could stay with it at all, That is a bad car with power to spare, CTS V is badder, vette motor with a 6 speed manual tranny that runs up to 140 mighty quick

    Whatever happened to little old ladies driving slow as heck? My grandma (when mad at me or dad) will peel out in the gravel drive, and in Boise Id going to a doctors appointment chirps the tires on the 01 Grand Caravan w/ the 3.8 at a stoplight.

    She also plays cop! somebody was rippin up the backroads around her house when they were going to work, she wips out of the intersection in hot pursuit, 80 or so on a narrow two lane, and she turned the guy in!

    That poor van has been through hell! :queasy:

    Ran a cts already, it's pretty quick but I was pissin the older guy off. He could not pass me. The CTS V is one damn sweet ride, and quick.
    My GF has a 04 Grand Prix GT. trying to get her to trade it in on a G8. Those are some fun cars to drive.

    edit: when I did run the cts on the interstate I later checked the evo and it said top speed was 132 :eek6:. limiter set to 140. It did start to feel kinda weird. I think that was the longest I ever kept it to the floor.
    What is the top speed on one of these? It won't be me to find out! My tires are only rated for 99:nono:.
