You and Gareth can come up with something, work on it. Another year, a few more Redneck laughs. I have some plywood so I'll make some more ROTY-A's for next years car show. I'm waiting for The Johnny to come join us.

You Redneck SOB CISO 2019 MVP you really had a go at it, nice job, a few funny videos for us. The Johnny thought the Jiffy Pop was good, its campfire food for the boy scouts and its fun to cook up a little Redneck breakfast or dinner Jiffy Pop. Nice Cadillac man cave you got there. I'll keep making the Cadillac ROTY-A's if I have the jewelry to play with. I just do this for laughs but the ROTY-A's are nice and they put a date and a handshake on the deal, the Cadillac brotherhood. When I was " bucks up " I bought a new 1990 and then a 1993 ETC, I never considered any other luxury car brand. You have the ultimate custom ETC with the 4.9L engine. We'll give it another go for next year and see where it goes.

If you have a Jim Bob's hat "you might be a Redneck ". I have to send you an orange Jim Bob's hat for the hunting season or when you go to the Home Depot to get some Redneck construction supplies. The orange Jim Bob's hat gets you one hat away -  one step away from the " triple crown " but no one has three Cadillac ROTY-A's yet, that's uncharted territory but we might get there one of these days. That would be the highest honor and immortalize you in the Cadillac ROTY-A " Hall Of Shame " for your " Wall Of Shame ".

I have some more plywood and I can make some awards, after this year the car show won't be the same without the  Cadillac ROTY-A'a awards so we have to make some more. We to have show up the Lincoln and Chrysler guys again -  let them go make their own awards.

The old plaque looks gigantic next to the new plaque.

The Original Test Mule for the C8 Corvette Used a Porsche Gearbox

They must had a lot of fun designing and engineering the new C8 Corvette, a dream job, you are under a lot of pressure but GM has deep pockets, in these times its world class or bust.

I'm waiting to hear from " The Johnny " , I asked him to drop by and have a few laughs with us.

We have a new gig now, every year we have to have a new Cadillac ROTY-A MVP. If you have two awards , a Jim Bob's hat and Jiffy Pop you are a member of an exclusive club, The Johnny was our first MVP, so now we have added Mike, Gareth and Rene to the " Hall of Shame ".

This is the new plaque design. We are a vanishing breed, we'll scrounge up some more jewelry and we'll keep rolling with it. I like this new car show, Big Three luxury cars, old school Detroit iron.

We might draw a penalty from the Lincoln / Chrysler guys for " taunting " as in NFL football with our awards at the car show but I think we " amped up " the show a little bit.  As Gareth said ( sort of ) join CISO, attend the car show and get an award.

I saw a few Cadillac's leaving the show in the video so our luxury car brand of choice was well represented, I have a hunch Rene our CISO Cadillac 2019 ROTY-A  MVP is going to send me some more jewelry to use. I'll make some more for next year if I have the jewelry, " it ain't over till its over ".

Rene got his Jim Bob's hat and his Jiffy Pop so Mike has to show him the CISO Cadillac ROTY-A secret handshake now or Gareth can show him too once Mike comes up with the secret handshake............. That's a Johnny Washburn joke.

The best CISO Cadillac ROTY-A video by far ! We might just be legends in our own minds but I'm okay with that and it works for me, I've been there and done that and so have you guys , if you want to challenge me pack a lunch because it will be a long day ...........

I owed Maureen a Cadillac ROTY-A so you guys can thank her, The Johnny and Rene tossed in some more jewelry so I made as many as I could and everyone got one but we had to have a victim so Gareth was the fall guy but he took it pretty well. It was payback time for Mike so he had a good laugh. BTW Gareth was that was 2012 and we nailed you pretty good, all just for laughs. Anyway if we get there next year we will have another victim, maybe a new CISO member.

Soon we will all get to see one, a vastly improved design but I would never buy the first year model, even with GM’s rigorous testing there’s bound to be some issues. The C8 was in the design phase for many years ( started ten years ago when GM declared bankruptcy ) and shrouded in secrecy. They really kept the price down too. Exciting times for GM's product line. I'm sure they are working hard on their new product line of Cadillac electric cars.

Quote
R&T: You’ve dealt with a lot of rumors. I remember one in particular—that the rear glass was cracking under acceleration.

TJ: That’s absolutely false and actually preposterous on the face of it. The body structure’s not designed around engine torque or engine output. That’s a trivial load.

KB: How that rumor got started was Cadillac was track-testing, and they were changing out parts. They broke one of them and threw it out. We were testing later. Someone saw that broken part in the trash and assumed that it came off a Corvette.
