comments from Marko Radielovic, writer for Car Craft magazine.
"A lot of thought went into making this Caddy handle like a sports car."
"Nothing radical, just sound engineering."
"Taking home the crown as the official '02 Real Street Eliminator champion was no small feat."
"But in the end, we had to call him The King."

Excerpt from Popular Hot Rodding
Jeff Schwartz would easily be considered one of the more aggressive drivers in the event. Ignoring the fact that he's even on a road course in the first place with an '82 Cadillac Fleetwood, Schwartz pushed the car to its absolute limits and humbled more than a few sports car owners in the process. When he overcooked the brakes in his very first session Schwartz decided to maintain his pace by "throwing" the Caddy into the turns to help scrub off speed, keeping the M3s and Cobras comfortably in his rear view.
