Pretty impressive cars you beat out!!!! Even though you won I think you should have gotten a better score on the Craftsmanship. Can't wait to get the issue!!!! I bet the other fellows felt like this after seeing your e.t.

I say go and build up that Caddy!!!!! I don't know about y'all but I tend to get tired of all the cookie cutter Mustangs and Camaros. You see it enuff and it gets old. One guy down here did go against the grain and put a 302 Ford in his S-10. Now thats something different.

I'm thinking you should weld some square tubing in the floor to mount the rear differential and four link. Install a mild 500 inch Cad engine or Northstar with a blower and go looking for Mustangs. That 90 Deville only weighs about 3500 lbs should run deep in the 11's , unless you put NOS, then It'll run 10s!

LOL i love it! but, it would be costly, and iam broke. hmm, but how hard would it be to go from fwd to rwd? couldnt i use Fleetwood parts? SEE! now you got me thinking!

I have a 1979 Sedan Deville that I am working on, or have been for years! It has a well modded 72' 472, but none of the other car mods that this car has!
Someday my car will be like yours! hehe!

You don't need to go RWD.. There are plenty of FWD cars out there running single digit quarter miles... A heavy FWD in the 11's or 12's should be okay.. Right?

that would be great, but, how do i get that kinda power?
- 01-14-03 08:54 AM #15
Pick-up the Jan 03 issue of Hot Rod. They had recipes to get over 1000 Hp from a Northstar. Eliminate all emissions stuff, add a blower or Turbo. 565 HP was attainable with a fairly stock engine and a weiand blower. The only way to get more power out of the 90 engine is NOS. You'd be limitted to about 300-350HP and for how long who knows. And the front drive trans?
