Just when you were getting used to the idea of a Cadillac truck, a two-seat roadster and a 400-horsepower CTS-V sedan, along comes the company with another surprise: a mid-sized sport-utility vehicle. The Caddy of today is hardly the Caddy you knew. The new-for-2004 SRX is a vehicle that defies definition and invites interpretation. As one of first of the S-series of models, the SRX foreshadows and shares the automotive DNA of future Cadillac vehicles, such as the 2005 STS sedan that will replace the current Seville.

The DeVille name is out and the DTS is in as Cadillac's luxury king, but, unlike the company's other new-age, cutting-edge vehicles, this is one big sedan that doesn't rock the engineering boat. Over the past few years, nearly every vehicle in Cadillac's lineup has been newly invented, completely changed or significantly altered. In fact a few years ago, Cadillac never had an XLR roadster, an SRX sport-utility vehicle or an EXT pickup truck. For 2006, however, the race to be new and different has been dialed back to a much more stately pace with the arrival of the flagship DTS. OK, so the car isn't exactly a full-blown makeover, but the changes align Cadillac's premium model, at least in name, with the entry-luxury CTS and sporty STS sedans.

pepperb@herald-mail.com It was a priest who first asked Nancy Gordon to get behind the wheel of a school bus. It was the taxi service she was already providing to her five school-aged children that persuaded her to look back through the wide rearview mirror of an empty church bus for the first time. "I thought, 'what am I doing here?'" the 62-year-old woman reflected, while perched behind the wheel of a Washington County Public Schools bus. Gordon wears rose-colored prescription sunglasses and has her ear pierced by a stud with a dangly gold star.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Many of the 125 vehicles shown in Sunday's Old Home Week Antique Car Show had ties to the Greencastle area. Most of the owners were from Franklin County. Many cars were purchased from Greencastle dealerships. And every last one of them, it seemed, had a story. Take LeErin Plasterer's firemist red 1965 Cadillac convertible, for example. The Greencastle man had a Cadillac in the early 1970s that was the same color but a different body type. Then, one day, he saw "Doc" Edward Carl's wife driving the convertible.

The car that singlehandedly helped revive the once-floundering Cadillac marque will arrive, redesigned, in a few months with even more ground-breaking content beneath its svelte skin. The launch of the original CTS back in 2002 as a 2003 model was a just-in-time idea for General Motors' premium brand. The car it replaced, the German-influenced Catera, simply failed to create much buzz with buyers who instead chose entry-luxury cars from Europe and Japan. In truth, the entire Cadillac lineup was in need of resuscitation, especially since its aging fanbase was dwindling.
