Whats up caddy friends! Well, after 17 months, the latest addition to the growing family is here 🥹. I finally took ownership of my factory order BlackWing a couple weeks ago. My dealer right in town is a platinum and pretty much will give me whatever allocation i want at sticker so im pretty fortunate i could get exactly what i wanted. Just took forever (Car sat waiting for satin wheels then WHEEL LINERS for like 90 ish days.. 😂. But Heres the goods.
-Summit White
-Manual obviously 💪🏻
-Carbon Ceramic’s with red calipers
-Natural brown carbon seats
-Satin wheels
-Ultraview
-Suede wheel/Knob
-and The rest of the smaller options besides Carbon 1+2 as those are donzo unfortunately for now. Theres a slight chance they come off constraint for ‘24’s but a regional guy told me its bleak.

I’ve only put a few miles on her thus far(i live in Buffalo) ☠, but man… The tech they packed into the car is something else. I’ve owned super cars, exotics , driven A LOT of special machines, its really a work of art. I woulda liked a tad wider rear end to the body but ehh thats life in todays world lol. The LT4 is an LT4. Raw, visceral, the short throw linkage on the TR6060 is perfect as per usual… Just such a unique piece. If this legitimately is the last ride for our beloved V’s, they did it right. Heres a few shots.

Love the seats. Just curious if you had a V2 with a short throw shifter modification? I am wondering what the throw comparison is to a stock v2 vs. short throw shifter mod on v2 vs. the newest manuals that come in our cars like your blackwing. If i recall the short throw shifter on the v2 is supposed to reduce throw by like 15%?

Very nice! Congrats!
That's a great looking V! I really think that might be the one car I'd consider trading the Wagon for. Very classy.

Which person are you in the photo?

Judging by the snazzy gold watch, and the $400 tennis shoes, he's on the right. ;)

Damn I really like the CF seat backs. You can see all those coolers behind that grille too. They wont make many more cars like this anymore, especially not with a manual.

I’m sitting here thinking my kids would destroy the back of the seats.

Thanks man! Appreciate the love. Hopefully wheels ASAP. Probably another set of Signature Forged. I’ve owned multiple sets over the years and i think they’re up there with the best bang for your dollar monoblocks.

For the rest , You guys are nuts 😂. Its rare i clean up decent for pics. Im 33 next month, 15 lbs overweight and thinning up top there hahaha. But yeaa those seats are first on the list to get clear bra’d because I'm sure my son will be bootin the fuck outta it 😂.
