About this blog

Just purchased a 2017 Cadillac ATS-V for my new toy! 🙂 I absolutely love this car! The car only has 11,700 miles on it so it really does look brand new. It appears to have every option that was available in 2017, so lots of bells and whistles that I'm just beginning to explore. 

Most of the fun cars I've previously owned were before the "internet" so documentation and even pictures are pretty sparse. That inspired me to do a better job with this one and the reason why I'm creating this blog. I will have all the details about the car including build options, as well as information on the upcoming modifications, performance data, and lots of pictures and videos.

Ceramic Treatment

Ceramic Treatment

Just got the car back yesterday after taking it for a ceramic paint treatment. Since the car only has 13,000 miles on it and appears to be garage kept for its entire life and was in near perfect condition,  I wanted to protect the surface and make it easier to clean. So after doing a little research, I took the car to a place that's about 1 minute away from the Road Atlanta entrance called ZeroDefects. Chris had the car for three days and went over every exterior square inch.  I went with t

Let the fun begin. 🙂 It is really hard for me to leave well enough alone, I've always wanted to tweak my cars and make them "mine", so obviously this one will be no different. 🙂 I have already installed the tune from Trifecta and I love it. Not only do I gain ~120 hp at the wheels, but the transmission is also recalibrated and that is awesome. So 18 lbs of boost gets me 500 rwhp. Would love to see what 20 or 22 gets me. 🙂  Today I ordered some Eibach springs for the car. These are

I would love to take the car to a drag strip/autocross for some runs to see how it is currently running before I make any changes to it, but the changes may come first. 🙂 I don't think I've ever owned a car that I haven't made changes to...  The changes I am going to be making to this one will consist of power upgrades, suspension/wheels/tires, and a few cosmetic items... just because. This section is about power... makes me what to make Tim Allen sounds.    From the factory, th

I'm a handling guy, always have been. I love the curvy roads and will go out of my way to take those every chance I get. I started autocrossing cars back in 1973 and have continued off and on for all these years, and the love of driving has only increased as I've gotten older. And it's not just turns, I also want a car that can stop much faster than it can accelerate. This one does it all. In the stock form, this car will pull a steady 1.03 g's on a skidpad, and many people have never even

What is a Cadillac ATS-V?

Most people that aren't car people have no clue about this car. When you first tell people you own a Cadillac most minds conjure up grandpa's finned Cadillac with a 20 foot hood, but this ain't grandpa's Cadillac anymore. In today's world, Cadillac's are known for innovative performance on par with the best the rest of the world can offer, and this car is no exception.  With the introduction of the V Series models, Cadillac stepped up to the world of serious high performance cars.
