Default Cadillac "Silverado"... what the?!?

Uhh... yeah, went out shopping and in the parking lot, saw what looked like a Cadillac "Silverado"

Cadillac emblem on the back
Cadillac grille (essentially looked like an Escalade front, looking at the contour lines of the front fender)
Cadillac steering wheel
Wood-grain trimmed center console and leather interior.
Cadillac written on the back, bottom right corner of the tailgate
Cadillac written on the lower portion of the door panels.
Looked like a 2 door silverado.

Though, searching around online, I don't see anywhere where Cadillac made such a beast...

Yet looking at the contour lines of the vehicle, it didn't look like a hack job.

Wish I had a camera to take a picture.

Anyone ever seen something similar?

There are a few in my area as well. I like them when they are done right. They use the Escalade front end and then badge the rest of the truck. Similar to the Oldsmobile S10'*. Bravada front end with emblems.

Looks pretty cool... not too bad of a deal to turn your chevy into a caddy for a few grand!

The local bodyshop has one. I thought it was a good idea for them. The parts were just lying around and it made a good showcase of their skill. And yeah, no Oldsmobile pickups that I know of, just the customs.
