That is OLD to say the least but it's still too damn funny......... To think it's stripped down as far as it'll go and it still only goes that fast............. AWESOME!!!!!!

Similar Idea

That reminds me of an article in one of the car mags many years ago when they took a Cadillac and stripped it down to show how weight loss equals performance. Some of you older guys will remember that article.

I remember that! That was a while back! They cut everything off that car! Didn't they end up with a race seat, slicks and a dash with a frame?

If i remember right i think they loaded the caddy down first to make it weigh as much as possiable then they procceded to take things off till it was just about a frame and a motor.i think it went in the 12s or something like that when it was finally lightened up.
