On the way back from Lunch today, I saw this Caddy XLR about 1/4 mile back, next thing I know he's right next to me. It was a V Series car, the one with the 469 hp S/C Northstar in it! The silver haired dude driving it had raced up to get next to 3649 and have a look. He smiled and gave me a thumbs up and I nodded back. Fully aware that the Caddy he was driving could walk on me at will without breathing hard, I did not downshift to third and hit it.
The cool thing is that very few other drivers of $100K cars would even give us a passing glance. But this was just another guy who liked American muscle, and had the means to afford one of the best. Gear heads are all the same, I guess. :wink:

Those things are really under 'tire'd for the amount of power they have!

BTW, he would have only beat you by maybe a car length or two on the highway from third!

COOL! That XLR CADDY is pretty rare, and as you probably know they are based on the CORVETTE but with the NORTHSTAR . I have only seen one on the road myself.

This is an XLR-V (the V's are really rare)




I think I would've put a couple lengths on him though.. ;)

Its not rather you win or loose...its that you ran the race. I would have dropped it on him just to see him do it too. Even when you're behind a car length or two it always good to see serious muscle being squeezed.

This is an XLR-V. Note the mesh grille that all V series cars have.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, but ain't playing with 443 hp and 414 torque with a blower! He wasn't trying to get me to run him, just wanted a look at the B.
