Cadillac Owner's Manuals

Cadillac Owners Manuals. The Founders of THE CADILLAC-LaSALLE CLUB, INC. are Ken Baldwin, Ansel Sackett and Norman Uhlir, along with the unstinting help of their wives Betty Baldwin, Harriet Sackett and Agnes Uhlir. This group did nearly everything during the first year that was necessary for the successful operation and continuation of the Club. Initially, the Club was named The Cadillac-LaSalle Car Club, but we learned that this was an infringement of the trademark owned by Cadillac Motor Car Division, General Motors Corporation, and we hastily changed it in March 1959 to CADILLAC-LaSALLE Club. Our incorporation in the State of Michigan came soon afterward. How did the formation of the Club happen?

A week or two later Ken phoned for a social chat and when I mentioned that I was going out to a farm on Saturday to take more parts off the 1931 V12 derelict Cadillac I’d bought just to get the radiator Flying Goddess ornament, he offered to come over and drive us out to lend a hand in the work. He showed up in a light green 1958 Sedan de Ville and we had the misfortune to encounter newly sprayed tar on West Ten Mile Road near Farmington, Michigan. It was a typical hot, muggy Michigan summer day and, while we were removing various parts from the rusting, rotting V12 Cadillac (exactly the kind that people buy to restore now), I was stung by a swarm of wasps nesting under the front seat. Thus, started the fable of Norm Uhlir’s big head! We drove back to my house on different roads to avoid more fresh tar, which had made a great mess on the de Ville. It was during this ride that Ken, Agnes and I started a serious conversation concerning existing car clubs and the lack of interest that was apparent in the Cadillac and LaSalle automobiles.

Ansel Sackett cannot recall when he first met Ken Baldwin. Since they both worked at Cadillac Motor Car Division, although in widely spaced different departments, they pursued a common interest in the older model Cadillac and LaSalle cars and it is a certainty that this must have drawn them together. I did not know or meet Ansel Sackett until Ken Baldwin held the Founder’s Meeting in late July 1958.

It was in early July 1958 that I saw an ad where someone needed a speedometer for their 1931 V12 Cadillac. I had just recently acquired one so I phoned and within two hours Ken Baldwin, who lived in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, was at my home in Royal Oak, Michigan, driving his 1931 V12 Cadillac Convertible Coupe. It turned out that Ken Baldwin was Manager of Dealer Management at Cadillac Motor Car Division and, when he learned that I was in management at Packard Electric Division (the original remnant of the Packard Motor Car in Warren, Ohio), we both knew that we had much in common professionally as well as in our hobby interests since I owned a 1930 V16 Cadillac Coupe. My wife and I both took an immediate liking to Ken and I made a gift of the speedometer to him. He left for home with a promise to call for another visit.

From 1959 through 1969 the Club centered around Agnes Uhlir. Both as the Editor and in the two national offices she held during that period, she was the primary contact for the members who responded to her requests for articles and gave her praise for her effort. She spent many hours at the Detroit Historical Library and at Cadillac Motor Car Division Public Relations in the search for material to use in THE SELF-STARTER. With my accessibility to information within G.M. Corporation I found valuable information we used on Cadillac Motor Car, Ternstedt, Fisher Body and the Proving Grounds. The activity was sometimes exciting and it was always stimulating and lots of work, work, work. That’s exactly as the successors have found it to be ever since. The reward is partially self achievement, but it is more importantly the service to a cause as well as to others that brings about and promotes lasting friendships in our shared hobby. Many of my closest, longtime friends are listed in the early membership directories of this Club. We usually held monthly Board Meetings so that no problem that surfaced had long to wait for action and a solution. When nothing important was pending we would cancel the meeting. These meetings usually lasted several hours and were followed by social sessions that promoted harmony among those attending.

Why did Cadillac make the decision to offer a manual when many other automakers are going away from manual transmissions? We’ve heard from our customers and from performance driving enthusiasts that there is still strong desire for a manual option. These V-Series Blackwing vehicles will epitomize performance driving, so while many other automakers are turning away from manuals, we decided to value our customers’ input and provide them with the option.

How much extra will it cost Cadillac to offer a manual transmission? We do not discuss specific production costs, but I can tell you that we implemented some unique vehicle production techniques to minimize the cost of providing multiple world class transmission options. We’ll have more information to share throughout the year, leading up to the product reveal.

What does the term ‘Blackwing’ represent for Cadillac? Blackwing represents the pinnacle of Cadillac performance engineering, craftsmanship and technology. It is a designation for our top-of-the-line V-Series performance iterations.

Your new naming strategy is confusing. First you change what V-Series means, and now you name the track versions after an engine (that they don’t have)? Cadillac is focused on bringing more customers into the V-Series family, while also offering an exclusive option for track enthusiasts. The expanded V-Series lineup starts as a step up from the Sport or Premium Luxury models. Those seeking the ultimate, high-performance track capability can opt for V-Series Blackwing – a new name that represents the pinnacle of Cadillac performance.
