Nice video, we are all in the CISO Cadillac ROTY-A " Hall of Shame " now. I had fun making the awards, they all have a theme, I try to tailor them to the model Cadillac you own but the old 40's and 50's jewelry with a simple crest, V and script are the best, it captures the essence of Cadillac but that jewelry is rare now. It works fine on the new plaque design. The Johnny gave me all of that. The old timers only own the old classic Cadillac's and some of them only own the pre war cars.

 I used the trowel on Kevin W's award per his approval. Rene's old time jewelry award ( "he put the screws to me" ) the plastic crest the color was gone so I hand painted it, MVP indeed, I was just " giving him  the business ". Shame the generator wouldn't fit in the Eldo so he went to plan B with his nice CTS. Interesting that his CTS is so much taller than his Eldo.

We got to gag Gareth again with his second ROTY-A, we had a plot for that one.  

They are all nice, which one is you favorite ? Yours of course. The molds have been broken, the choice jewelry all used up, I'll ship what's left to Mike and he can play around with it. We are all celebrities now, The CISO 2019 Cadillac ROTY-A limited edition, eight total plus the last two with the old plaque design. The awards made the show very memorable.

Uh, I think you're 2-1 Mike, we gagged Gareth when we gave him his first ROTY-A. So now the Jones brothers have an old style and a new style award just like Rene but he got two at once, that's unheard but after all he was the CISO 2019 MVP so we pulled out all of the stops. Great video, now tell me about the spectators that watched the award ceremony. Okay, I noticed they were all sitting on the bench.

The only problem I see for the Lincoln and Chrysler guys is they don't have a suitable crest profile to make their awards. Nice we had two of the old style plaques so they got a nice send off, the last two. I made sure Maureen's / Meghan's had my best choice jewelry I had, only fitting for the last one, BTW on Rene's my plywood wasn't wide enough so I had to shorten the wing tips a little, its actually a little more correct so his is a real one off, just like his custom Eldorado.

Actually Gareth you have to be a member of CISO , own a Cadillac and turn your own wrenches or at least you used to so that makes you a Redneck. We don't have any bucks up Cadillac owners in our club with fancy trailer queen show cars , maybe the Johnny but he drives his cars and they have a driving tour every year with the CLC Rocky Mountain Chapter. In ten years I wiped out the Johnny's entire stash and boy he had all the old time jewelry. He sent me all of those long Cadillac scripts, this year we had a nice mix and match of jewelry, some of the old and the new.  Mike has to run a background check so we don't run into another character like " STU ". The old time jewelry is long gone, as Rene will tell you only 2000 and newer is at the bone-yards these days and the N*S engine Cadillac's are coming in on a weekly basis and they have some nice jewelry, sure its plastic who cares ? So the new plaque design is perfect for the newer jewelry. I have another piece of plywood in the garage, enough to make six more so if anyone goes to the bone-yard grab the jewelry because I'm all out. I made ten this year and six more wouldn't be too bad. I don't even have the profile template anymore so I would just start over, they  would be similar but that makes them unique. I used the older angled top, the new flat top is boring, designing the plaque profile is half of the fun. I owed Maureen one, Rene wanted an old time style one and I said what the heck lets use up this jewelry and get it over with, I couldn't just toss it.

I think the ROTY-A's took the show to another level, made it very memorable. Try to get your act together next time guys, sheesh we were a smidgen away from a total " fubar " .............. LOL Rene saved the day.

Presenting the awards was a nice pre show before the peoples choice awards were handed out.
There was a good crowd behind the camera.
We joke about the Lincoln and Imperial guys but it's all in good fun. One thing I really enjoyed about the show was that there wasn't any rivalrys between the brands. We all got along great.
Some car shows exhibit a lot of snobbery but that didn't happen there.

Lincoln and Chrysler built some fine rides, they all have pros and cons. As for Rene's comment about the bone yards are full of Lincolns we aren't ones to talk with our N*S engine Cadillac's. Most of these newer engines aren't very durable and they use 0-20W oil ?  They consume a lot of oil like 1 qt. every 1 K from what I've read.

I appreciated all the thanks, 15 minutes of fame for all of us. It's nice to put a face on everyone.

They could have used some stronger cylinder head bolts like they use when you repair them. The aluminum block engines the head bolts always seem to fail once the mileage gets up there. This is a common problem with all of the car brands.

I would like to see it go to someone that can rescue it.
 I have put lots of new parts on it in the 4 years that I've owned it but it still has a few issues other than the head gaskets but nothing major.
I'm going to ponder for a bit.

All bets are off if you put any snake-oil into the engine. I've done N* rebuilds in the past after goop used & I never want to do that again. It took me 3 days to clean out the water jacket on one job & had to use a hammer & chisel for another.

Just say'n.....

The infamous horn caper, if Gareth didn't mention " What are you going to do with those horns ? " I dunno who needs them ? "  Mike does and he can have them but we have to pull a gag on him, nothing is free ( except for " free " shipping these days ) .......... LOL  Mike even flipped me " the bird " in the video. He even got the trumpet horn to finally work, a Cadillac without a nice set of horns ?  Mike is 2-1 now, we gagged Gareth with both of his CISO ROTY-A, what are friends for ? Mike keep an eye on Gareth, he'll likely try to even up the score.

I gagged all of you guys with your CISO Cadillac RTOY-A 2019 limited edition but it made the show special for us and I made them Redneck nice.
