GM would probably be better off financially if they just sold trucks and SUVs and perhaps one sedan, Ford says they are headed that way, including the Mustang.

BTW drove to the airport in the Jeep this morning. 65 and foggy. It was glorious. Not too cold at all.

Gross weather.  No thanks. :)

Gotta keep Cadillac sedans and Corvette. That's about it.

The Caddy sedans are fine cars but nobody buys them much other than me.

I'll probably have a Caddy sedan (if they're available) after I can't get in and out of the Vette

hopefully there will be a V8 option

They developed their own V8 but now are getting rid of the big sedan.  I guess they may put it in the CT5, don't know.

may have to settle for a used Caddy to get the V8, but used is in my price range

could be 10 year-old used

The only used V8 sedan is the CTS-V, which is a monster of a car, supercharged Corvette engine with 640 horsepower.  It drinks gas.

My FIL drives a fairly recent (last couple years?) Lincoln something or another.  It's their sports sedan, not the Continental.  I think it might be a V8?  It's pretty quick, I got us from New Orleans to Austin in record time...

Probably a Lincoln MKZ, they are either 4 cylinder or 6 cylinder, basically a slightly modified Ford Fusion.  The V6 is pretty quick but can have torque steer as it is FWD.

he Caddys have no Chevy equivalent (aside from the Camaro in effect) and are RWD (AWD optional).
