Few minutes later I caught up to it again and was trying to get up far enough to find a badge/emblem or even the grill to see what Make it resembles. Finally I was able to inch forward enough to catch a glimpse of the Cadillac Emblem. Then I ended up next to the car at a red light. Gave the driver a thumbs up to say 'Nice Car' and he had a big grin on his face after that.
The license plate said ALLANTA, but I didn't know that was the car at the time, found that out at home.
Some more details about the Allanté (Brought to you by the all knowing Wiki):
