Cadillac hosted a fun Cadillac CTS Coupe Drive-away this morning. They brought 2 dozen Cadillac CTS Coupes and Cadillac CTS-V Coupes together at Victory Center in Dallas, then paraded out to the Arlington Convention Center for a press conference with SLANT 45 and the Super Bowl XLV Host Committee.
There was a veritable WAVE of CTS Coupes; it was great.
I was able to get one photo of the CaddyInfo Sponsor Crest Cadillac crew in attendance and I in front of the CTS-V Coupe
Shown: Daniel Durbin, Mike Brosin, Bruce, Yolanda Hermosillo, Ed Elizondo.
I also got a shot with Donna McLallen, GM South Central Region Communications/PR ( @GMTexas on twitter)
Ed Elizondo drove the CTS-V Coupe with Donna and I as passengers for the drive over to the convention center.
At the Press Conference Cadillac also discussed their sponsorship of the upcoming SLANT 45 movie. Service Learning Adventures in North Texas (SLANT 45) is the education initiative that the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee, in partnership with Big Thought, launched as part of its legacy programs. Designed to inspire creativity and build problem-solving skills, this unique service-learning program will positively impact thousands of North Texas children and their families.
