Wassup, folks?

Started shopping for my car a few months ago. Got smart and went to see a friend that owns the local caddy stealership and lo and behold there sits a brand new, 315 mile, 2005 CTS-V. He's tired of payin floor plan interest and diein to be rid of it. Snagged a low $30K, 100K warranty deal on the spot.

Got in the car yesterday and drove over 1100 miles up to central IL for a business meeting this morning. I'm lovin this car.

Well, here's "The Don V". It's a gangsta nick I picked up from some friends with the V. Not toooo flashy, but doin it with class and style.


























Me, aka Boilermaker (I sell and project manage biomass renewable energy steam plants for a livin), The Fast Old Man (11 sec.), The Godfather (the INC crew), The Don, THE Road Warrior (>50K/yr), EZ, Gene. I'm married for 25 years, two grown up kids, too many pets, a serious gearhead addiction, love meeting new folks at car shows, racing at the drag strip, road racing and auto-x. Director on the BoD of the Impala SS Club of America, President of DeepSouthSS and belong to around 20 car clubs across the country. Hopefully I can learn some things from y'all and share what lil I know.



My "other" car.
