Default Redneck Cadillac converted to a hauler....I think?

Seen this modified Cadillac today with some kind of rack to haul something. Whatever it's made to haul it must not weigh very much. Any idea's what this rack is for?

That is definitely a caddie. Looks to be early 1980's vintage.

Not to hijack the thread Russ, but do you see who's being interviewed for backup QB?

Looks like a horse race starter for trotter's. It would run along the track in from of the racers then speed off the track as they have a running start.

Yeah, I can't believe Vick will make the team. How did he get to Pittsburgh any way, does he know Tomlin or Haley?

Not Detroit, a few miles south of Toledo.

It has stop lights mounted high up on the rack so I don't think its a race starter but that is a really good guess.

My dad had a 1980's vintage Cadillac he bought new and it was the biggest slowest car I have ever driven. I think it was only around 120HP trying to push all of that metal. You could measure your 1/4 mile time with a freakin sun dial!!

Not a Vick fan but he has had some flashes of greatness if only he could be consistent.


After enduring one of the worst seasons in his 12-year NFL career, quarterback Michael Vick is getting another chance to play, this time for the Pittsburgh Steelers on a one-year deal, the team announced Tuesday.


The deal is for "roughly" $1 million, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

I remember them having an engine that was advertised as am V8 that dropped 2 cyl. then dropped 2 more when on the highway. They had tons of troubles with the technology back then. I don't think they were anything close to 8 liters by this time period.

True story - they sold some of those boats with a six cylinder motor (I had a well used one for a short time).

That's the dick that drives in the center lane on the freeway doing 35MPH with the gates out to keep people from passing.
