Here’s some quotes Alan selected from proud, livid, and hurt Allanté owners:

“Its obvious you fancy yourself an intellectual and maybe in california you are. I don’t even own one and I am insulted by your stupid shit” - Cadillac (not even an Allante) Owner.

“The Cadillac Allante was no lemon but thank you for passing on some stupid contest.”

“If you can’t grasp why comparing a top of the line Halo Cadillac to a freakin Pinto is my dear sir have lost it.”


I have to admit, I’m really loving the over-the-top, sitcom-grade highbrow huffiness affected in some of these responses. It’s just...perfect.

“Actually there were no ‘drivetrain quality issues’” - Allante Owner (4.1 HT engine)

“But may I suggest that you solicit entrants from trailer parks, Craigslist, etc..”

“Your initial scathing review of the Allante to me isn’t classy, its quite the opposite an affront to class and its probably the reason why you run this ‘fun’ event”

“This ain’t about sense of humor. It is about the value of a car. Your crap can only hurt that.” - $2500 Allante Owner

“I polled the other officers of our Club. The overall response was no we are not interested. As Allante’ owners, club members, and loyal Cadillac enthusiasts, regardless of street or collector value, we hold our Allante’s in high esteem and care for them accordingly.

Our club will not attend your meet. “ Paula Vopelak - Allante Club of America, Atlanta Chapter


The Allanté Owners’ Club Facebook group had a lively discussion as well, though most of those posts have been deleted. Alan managed to snag some screenshots, though:


Yeah, uh, lighten up, Allanté owners. Maybe you kids should hang around with some Chrysler TC by Maserati owners until you feel better.
