The 200 mph Caddy is on the Ground! Finnegan's garage Ep.121

In this installment of the twin-turbo, 8 second Cadillac build, we unbox a new set of Weld Racing Alpha Pro double beadloc wheels for the back end of the car and a pair of V-Series front wheels, too. You'll also get a look at the MRC Fabrication mandrel-bent chassis, which will be the backbone of this high-speed project. Yes, we cut up a perfectly good, rust-free 1961 Cadillac Coupe DeVille but it will be well worth it when we cruise the street with our friends in this beast, then blast down the quarter mile, and finally go 200 mph in a car that was never intended to be anything more than a luxury liner.
Want more information on the wheels we used? Visit:www.weldwheels.com/ships-now/alpha-1-ships-now.html
Here are the rear tires we are running:
and here are the front tires:
Support this channel by purchasing our merchandise. Every dollar goes directly into the project cars so we can keep on racing, doing burnouts and filming the shenanigans for you all.

What an outrageous car! I love the fluffy dice, and the B&W rear seat to relax on at 200 mph. You wouldn’t want someone soiling themselves on that!

Nice car!! I'd only maybe recommend a built 6l90e for the trans. They are pretty strong and simple to wire up.

So Cool. Missed this one. The Weld Alpha's are bitchin!!. Very nice and make the car. A favor to ask. Don't let the dogs watch the welding. Most of them,, don't know to look away immediately. At that distance they take some serious artificial x-rays. Poor pooches will be walking into walls and looking drunk-ish in a matter of years sooner than they should. It has happened before and I also know a guy who knows a guy. At least get them some awesome dark shades and strap them on their noggin. Love that 61 body style. Even IF it has a hard time with 200mph,, it still looks the part. Keep on,,Keeping on!!. Nice work crew!!.

I had to comment. I love what you're doing! I'm 45 but when I was younger I was into quarter mile racing. I grew up around the carpet business and my friend's dad owned seven carpet stores. He was into racing. We took one of his spare motors and tucked it in a 1967 Chrysler New Yorker that weighed 5500 lb. We were smoking everything on the streets with over 600 horsepower and a Detroit locker 530 gears. That old iron 727 with a reverse valve body. Was too much fun! I've had roadrunners and cudas but it was nowhere near as much fun as watching the look on their faces when you smoke them in a 15 ft long ride! A new kind of class!!

I'm not talkin Pro mods or Funny Cars. I'm talkin Stock Chassis Cadillacs! This car has been around since the late 70's here in Albuq., and still goes 10.40's@135 at Sea level, 11.0's@126 at our local track which is 5,200 ft! Car runs the Stock Short block Bored to 565 CI Injected on Alcohol! At 4,200 lbs!

I love this car and have one suggestion. Leave the bottom white and paint the top black. That would be one sinister looking Caddy with the black wheels and stay with the two color deal like Blasphemi

You going to have to put a trick air shock in the rear just for putting on and off the rear wheels and tires to give you enough access. It's easier to do it now then later

Why didn't you run a Cadillac 500 with all the stuff you talked about in the Chevy? I'm sure you could have stroked it to the same or more than the Chevy. It looks bad, there is no doubt in that. It would just have been nice to see it kept the same make. Ronnie.

That was my first car when I turned 16 back in 1975. It was a hand me down from my parents. Had the stock 390 cu. in. used to burn rubber so easy. the only thing I had to be carful was not shifting it in reverse when down shifting lol very spunky car too! It was white too!

Elvis would be proud
All the room in the front is for a Supercharger or twin turbo set up with after cooler and air to air intake to keep the air intake will run cool through the air conditioner to keep it really cold air for twin blower in to the blower maybe? Maybe go with experimental set up for higher head pressure for a full twin fuel rail with nitrous and Holley dominator programer. Going to look mean when your done with it. I had a Chevy Impala about 1960 I think this is a picture of it: Nice car wish I still had it today; - Image ID: GF7D4W Mine was red with the white top as well, looked just like this one.

I've always had this question. When you build cars, meaning you, Freiburger, Dulsich, whoever. Why do you choose to put a 3 speed transmission in the car, then spend more money on a GearVendors? Why not just choose a 4 speed 700R4 or 4L85E or whatever? Is it because you can beef up the 3 Speeds alot more than the 4 Speeds? Or are there fitment issues with the 4 vs the 3 speed?

Hey , ask troy trepanier if he can help you. He has experience in transforming series cars into pro street machines ! 1-the mint green 1960s Chevy Impala, shoe box, Hot Rod of the year 1990 ! 2- the orange 1950 buick boumongus sedanette per street Hot Rod of the year 1992 ! What a crazy idea !! You can read these articls in the hot rod magazines !!
