All Cadillac V’s Chapter
Now being formed.
Today, DR Rawson, the Club’s President, and Director announced his intention to form a Cadillac V Chapter. Chapter’s can be started by any active member and must be approved by the CLC Board of Directors. DR indicated that they’re going to try and get provisional approval from the National CLC Board of Directors meeting in March of 2018 at their quarterly meeting.
The Cadillac V Chapter will be headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada. In order to be a part of the club, one will first have to join the national organization ($40.00), then the Las Vegas Region of the Cadillac & LaSalle Club ($25.00) and the dues for the Chapter will be approximately $10.00, all per year.
In order to be eligible to join, a prospective member will have to have joined all three organizations. They do not have to have a Cadillac or a Cadillac V including, ATS-V, CTS-V, STS-V or XTS-V. If a potential member is already a member of a region anywhere in the world, they do not have to join the Las Vegas region.
In Las Vegas, there is an active group of V enthusiasts that regularly attend various car shows.
DR says, “This has the potential to be the biggest Chapter of the National Cadillac & LaSalle Club.”
Anyone interested in joining the club should contact DR@LasVegasCLC.com or call him at 702-701-0378. The first 8 people that want to join will have “founder” status within the Chapter.
One of our longtime members is gone. Mike Conforti has been a member of our club for years. Some of our members can’t remember a time when Mike wasn’t there. His spirit and presence will be missed.
Mike was born in the Bronx, New York in July of 1942. He was a successful roofer in New York before retiring in Las Vegas.
When Mike joined the Cadillac & LaSalle Club he was in the Manhattan, New York club Cadillac and LaSalle club for years. Upon moving to Las Vegas, he joined our club. Mike told the story that he had asked our club President at the time, Colin Christie, “What are we doing about parades?” Colin said, “How about you take that and run with it.” He did. He became our parade master. He lined it up, set it up and just made it work.
Mike was also the head of our Annual May picnic for years. This event always went off without a hitch. Mike thought of everything. For his years of service, the Board of Directors awarded a plaque detailing his service and note that he had obtained the Board Member Emeritus status within the club. It was presented to him by his long-term Board Member and Founder of the Club, Hal Sheaks in November of 2017. Hal and Mike were best of friends and Mike played a huge role in the Cadillac & LaSalle Club Chapter – Drop Tops.
Mike and his wife Joan supported the Cancer Foundation.
He will always be missed . . . rest in peace Mike.
If you think price is the whole story, you’re sadly mistaken. It’s stance, appearance, comfort and how about the fact that this is 1 of 115 made. It’s a V and it’s exclusive. V means that it’s quick, 0 – 60 in (unknown and unpublished at the time this was posted). Like all the V cars before this one, it will turn heads. You can count on corporate types, casual types, gear heads, your children and perhaps grandchildren will be all wanting to ride with you. Buckle up buttercup, this is NOT your grandfather’s Cadillac. It isn’t even your Dads.
It’s gone . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

One Hundred Years
One hundred years separates these two cars. The XT5 from Findlay Cadillac is really coming on strong along with the new CT6 and the other models. All of these beautiful cars were present at our first annual Cadillacs under The Stars – CTS. Wow what a great evening. There were 52 Cadillacs that were new, used, classic, custom or just modified. There was even a Hearse that came all the way from Pahrump; thanks Floyd.
Here is the event as described in the RJ the day of the event.
