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 V means that it’s quick, 0 – 60 in (unknown and unpublished at the time this was posted).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 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.
Dateline: September 8, 2017
Time: 10:00 AM
This morning (top to bottom) Shawn Tempesta, LJ Harkness and DR Rawson were together to discuss the upcoming Cadillacs under The Stars (CTS) event. Shawn interviewed LJ and DR and showed images from a video that was shot at Cadillacs Through The Years (CTTY) last April and still photos of the Cadillac & LaSalle Club members vehicles.
Both men emphasized the fact that all Cadillac owners were invited to show off their ride. Registration for vehicles is FREE and the show is also FREE. If you love Cadillacs, this is a don’t miss event.
You’ll see new, used, classic, modified and custom vehicles. The show is kid friendly and open to everyone.
Shawn then recapped the interview and announced the date, time and location of the event.
The interview will air after September 10th on Channel 13, KTNV.
