    As I get older, the comfort side of the scale has become far more appealing.

        I had a few rental cars last year. Of course I go them to 100+. It was scary as hell as you could not tell what speed you were going, without looking at the speedometer. Those are nice cars as well, forgot they made a V8. A friend of mine has the I6 and can do smoke shows with it.

          the older I get, the more I like older stuff. Character wins out over comfort these days for me.

            I don't know how your driver's seat feels, but if it's anything like the passenger seat it's nice and springy!

                you said it another way I did not.

                I am getting to be the same strangely.

                comfort to me is 20 foot long sedan a real 3800 pounds or heavier, and not being able to tell the v8 is running.
                ..and if rpms go beyond 3000 it is an ahole.
                I think a 276 inch kenworth w900 is a cadillac...in contrast to my first rides, it is understandable. 100mph loaded is an adult option worth 165,000 dollars indeed.

                a ten geared stage 1 clutch subaru from the 80s is my other version of a cadillac...

                BMW 2002 type animal suspension...an engine that only lays it down instead of up. four wheels hell bent to stay on earth if it means looking like..well..an animal to do it.

                110 inch wheel base would be nice..but no complaints really.

                I guess we all get to be odd with the torture manufacturing bullshits us with.

                that is probably called abuse in the eyes of real laws unwritten.

                  I have a quandery with the Crown Vic because I chose to put Eagle GT's on it which have a stiff sidewall, couple that with the stiff cop car springs and it rides like a truck. Even though it corners real nice the next set of tires are going to be something a little less Hi-perf and I may even hunt down some softer springs. Great handeling is nice but in if your daily driver beats you to death it gets old quick.
                  Just groovin' to my own tune.

                      IMO nothing beats comfortable benchracing in a '60NY...

Any first hand info on how they drive?...
                        one of the guys who likes Buicks and Fiats and such on here can tell you how well they stay parked, and hold down the dealer's service lift to keep it (the lift) from floating away... The nice lady at work says her MPG is now down to 15mpg on average (WTF?) on an untouched, never seen a tuner 5.7 version. I admit to liking them but I'm not liking some of the stuff I hear.

                            I am a bit conflicted. I love my 87 GTA 350 trans am that I put a T -5 in. Then I have the 95 Caprice Classic wagon with the 350 LT1. Both have big factory brakes ,power locks and widows , tilt and cruise. Right now I like the Trans am just a little bit more. When i find a Caprice Classic sedan to put my cop sway bars on and put the LT1 in . Plus a T-56 six speed, the T/A will probably find a new home.

                              My hot rod is the most comfortable car/truck I have. The 'glass buckets leave a bit to be desired, and having to climb over the side bars get old on a cruise night, but nothing beats the style and feeling of an "old" car.
