CT6 thoughts and comments

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 V means that it’s quick, 0 – 60 in (unknown and unpublished at the time this was posted).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 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

CTS – 2017 – Press

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.

 

CTS = Cadillac under The Stars

September 23, 2017 at Village Square, 5 PM

As many of you know, in a Club or not-for-profit, many people often go unthanked for their dedication and service.  It’s never one person, it takes a TEAM dedicated to making this happen. Here is a partial list for this event (in no particular order):

  • Gary Weaver – Inspiration, working with the Village Square management and figuring out exactly how we’re going to get 120 or so cars parked in a timely fashion
  • Carolyn Weaver – Inspiration, advertising, registration flyer, promotion
  • Findlay Cadillac – Sponsor, advertising, video (John Saksa and LJ Harness)
  • Jerry Taylor – Video services
  • John Bergler – Award for Findlay Cadillac
  • Membership booth – We need volunteers for this 4 hour window of time on the 23rd of September
  • Registration – We need volunteers for this 4 hour window of time on the 23rd of September

Thank you everyone!

Emeritus

                       Mike Conforti with his award winning 1961 Cadillac Convertible

CONGRATULATIONS to Mike Conforti a long time member of our region and before that he was a member of the NY region.  Mike is a Cadillac Car guy.  No doubt about that.

There’s also no doubt that Mike has been a real hard worker. For years he has been managing our parade appearances. He also sets up the food and drink for the annual picnic PLUS almost anything you ask him to do.

In his honor the Emeritus Award was created. He is the first person to receive it.  Here’s what it says:

This Certifies that Mike Conforti as a reward for his years of service to the members of the Las Vegas Region of the Cadillac & LaSalle Club.  His privileges include the suspension of local dues, attendance at Board Meetings with the ability to advise and vote and all other regular member benefits.

Mike, on behalf of every member, THANK YOU for what you’ve done in the past and what we know you’ll continue to do when you can.  You are an invaluable member of our club.

 

Cadillac Anniversary

114 Years of Excellence, Design and Quality.  For many of us, Cadillac is once again the Standard of the World!  This month celebrates that birthday.

We want to thank John Bergler in our club for designing this beautiful Bavarian Cream cake. I can tell you this, it was gone when we left the meeting.

Yum . . .

Thank you!

Where do we begin? On behalf of the entire club, we want to say thanks to so many people that made Cadillac Through The Years such a successful event.

Sponsor – First the club would like to thank our sponsor, #Findlay Cadillac. John Saksa is the General Manager. He is not only a great guy but fully supports the Las Vegas, Henderson community including our club for the past 12 years.  This next statement always sound trite but it’s true, we couldn’t have done this event without #Findlay Cadillac.  LJ Harness has recently been added to the Team at #Findlay Cadillac adding his community causes, marketing and drive to everything.  He’s recently been assigned to the club and is fantastic.
