Nice you know how to deal with that , AC is not my bailiwick but Rock Auto is the go to place for good parts. I only knew of them from a CLC buddy years ago otherwise I'd be at the mercy of Napa and for the most part they are " clip joint " but they can get you the parts you need. Very competitive in the parts industry but some of these outfits sell crappy parts like Autozone, etc. At least with Rock Auto you can select from the premium parts and get a decent deal.

 Time to get into the AC on Vera. The high side Schrader valve was leaking. I had a used one. Didn't fix it. But in checking it, I pressurised the system and found the condenser to be leaking. One on its' way from Rock Auto.

The options and features on this car are insane. Cadillac pioneered some crazy technology back in the 50's but it was state of the art, these days any car company can do all of these crazy options. These days you to have " Keep up with the Jones' " LOL My IT friend said I don't like the old cars, they don't have all of the new " stuff ". Then they show you their navigation screen and their bluetooth phone, etc. Tire air pressure sensors that told her she had a tire low on air and it didn't, etc. Are these new cars really any safer ? Five years later the technology is already outdated.

It has about the same wheelbase as the 1977-96 Caprice and a similar turning circle (RWD model is a half foot smaller, AWD over a foot more).  Self-sealing tires are offered for improved ride quality (compared to the run-flats) on some models.  Weren't the 1988-92 Broughams the first Cadillacs with self-sealing tires as standard equipment?  I think Mike has a set of those Royal Seals on his '94.   What's the point of having 0.69:1 and 0.64:1 overdrive gears?

It sounds like they may be reviving the original CTS formula of a mid-sized vehicle at a compact price.  Looks like the C-pillar trim has something familiar to us.  Is this insert made of glass?

GM is becoming a China company, they have no choice, its a large market.

Whoopie Doo ! WHY ???   A stupid and unnecessary idea. Just another thing to waste our money on.
What they should be doing is make a licence plate where the paint doesn't peel off but I guess that's
what governments do best, waste money.

 I finally got something concrete. The front plate stays due to objections from the police. But we get pretty new plates starting in February with the new slogan.

 2020 Cadillac CT5 revealed,

Between the end of most of Cadillac's sedan offerings and the launch of the underwhelming XT6 crossover, things were looking dreary at the American luxury brand. But now we get an exciting surprise in the reveal of the 2020 Cadillac CT5 sedan. It's a clean, and arguably conservative-looking sedan, but there are a number of things that have us intrigued.

The sedan is clearly the CTS replacement, since the name falls just below the flagship CT6 sedan. Under the hood are two familiar Cadillac engines, a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 and a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6. Power numbers haven't been announced, but expect each to make similar power to the current CTS: 268 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque for the four-cylinder and 420 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque for the V6. Rear drive and all-wheel drive are available, and both engines get a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The car also adopts the trim level scheme introduced by the XT4 and XT6 crossovers, which means there are just two choices, Sport and Luxury. The Sport model, pictured in gray, has a more aggressive front fascia and dark taillights, while the Luxury model, shown in burgundy, has a more demure appearance and classic red taillights. We only get a glimpse of the interior, and it shows the latest electronic gear shifter shared with Cadillac's recent crossovers, along with a physical knob for interacting with the infotainment system.

Cadillac announced that the car will make its public debut at the New York Auto Show, and it will be built at the Grand River factory in Lansing, Mich. We expect to get more details and images of the car when it's revealed at the show.
