April 2013

Spring has sprung and the hard top is off for the season. The only problem has been the rain. Atlanta weather man said we ended 2012 with a rain deficit of ten inches. Mother nature is trying to fix that fast, last report we are up seven inches this year.

  • I love cruising in my Allante and I have made several trips this year with our club as well as the Peach State Cadillac LaSalle Club. Peach State is a regional chapter of CLC and as such they hold sanctioned cruises that meet their guidelines. When you participate on one of these trips you get mileage credits at national CLC, and after you have gone on a minimum of two cruises and travelled a minimum of five hundred miles you get a CLC Touring Grill Badge from CLC. Their Spring cruise to Nashville put me over and I just received mine and put it on in time for on our club’s trip to Guntersville State Park. By the way on the Nashville trip we were the only Allante among the nineteen Cadillacs. Russell and Paula would have gone but they chose to go to Paris instead. They need to get their priorities in line J Linda and I have enjoyed the Peach State club. They have a very large group compared to our club and many activities. One of the activities is attending First Friday Art and Car Show in downtown Canton every first Friday of the month. Joining other clubs is a great way to show off our cars and the friends you make are great. I do endorse the Peach State club as well as CLC of which you have to be a member before you can join the regional, but they welcome our members that are interested. Just drop Doug Bailey their President an email at

  • This year is looking to be one of our club’s finest. Please come out and enjoy your car and friends. Remember: Your participation in our club is what makes it continue to be outstanding.

    Just another day in paradise..

    A Police Officer pulls over the owner of the Allante' for speeding.

    Police Officer: “Sir, do you know you were doing 95 mph in a 70 zone?”

    Driver: “ Yes! I’m sorry. It's because I was racing another car and I just lost track of my speed.”

    Since he did not see any other car besides the Allante', so the Police Officer asks – “Sir, have you been drinking?”

    Driver: “A small Martini but just because I needed something to take with the Pill I took at a party!”

    Police Officer: “Pill?" "Sir, I need you to step out of the car! Is there anything else I need to know? Drugs, Firearms?”

    Driver: “Sure! There is at least 5 pounds of cocaine in my glove department and an AK-47 under my seat! But please, don’t open the trunk or the person I just kidnapped will escape!”

    The Police Officer, not believing what he heard and a little afraid, called his superior!

    Upon his arrival, the Police Officer told his Senior Officer all this. The Senior Officer told him to wait by his car and he goes to speak with the Allante' driver:

    Sheriff: “Sir, my subordinate told me you have a kidnapped person in your trunk!”

    Driver opens the trunk: “As you can see there’s no one here, just my jack, spare tire and my miniature briefcase.”

    Sheriff: “What about the AK-47 under your seat?”

    Driver pulling his seat forward: “There’s no such thing here, just an umbrella. Barely fit's!”

    Sheriff: “I see! And the cocaine in your glove compartment”

    Driver opens the glove compartment: “you must be kidding me, in a glove box this small! Only my registration’s there. Nothing else would fit.”

    Sheriff: “Have you been drinking or engaging in any kind of drugs?”

    Driver: “Sir, I don’t smoke cigarettes, don’t even drink soda! I’ve been in my home all night with my wife and she's the most fervently religious woman you would ever know! That Police Officer over there must be kidding you! HE told you I was drunk, took drugs, was armed,a drug dealer and had kidnapped someone? What else? That I was speeding too?”
