    Just when I think Cadillac might be emerging from the 1970’s my neighbor goes and buys a new CTS with a VINYL ROOF AND LANDAU APPLIQUES!

    My faith in the American car industry (not to mention my neighbor’s taste) has been restored!

    LOL!!! How old is your neighbor??? I have yet to see a young person with the vinyl/fabric landau package.

    I've got one worse. I've seen Lexus LS430 with the fabric roof/landau package and gold emblems. To top it off it had sparkly wire wheels.

    Actually, I got that beat. I wish I had photographic evidence of it too. In Houston, probably a good 7 years ago, a 300zx twin turbo. But not just any 300zx, specifically, an actual SR-71 edition. It had the soft top, gold studs, everything. But it was NOT a convertible.

    I have seen a Ferrari Lusso one-off with a vinyl roof specially made for the ex-president of Haiti.

    he's about 70 or 72 ex-Floridian. Actually a really nice fellow. I'm a little ashamed of making light of his new car, but its just SO Floridiot!

    I saw a new Hyundai Tibouron 6 Speed the other day with the "Ferrari" script across the back and a prancing horse beside the plate, also had "Pininfarina" badges on the lower rear quarters! It actually looked Italian! LOL

    I'll give you one guees as to who designed that car actually. ( BTW I still dont like that car.)
    Also the Vinyl roof isnt a factory option for the CTS.

    Jay, believe it or not Pininfarina DID design the Tiburon, and those basges are stock. Well the Ferrari script may be creative, but at least not Sergio's.

    I knew pinifarina designed it but I have never seen the "pinin" emblems on the side and they definately didn't come with prancing horses and Ferrari script! I like how the car looks...
