Well I've got some, but none of them are mine as my engine is still in pieces. These clips are borrowed from CB7

514's Caddy powered "hell wagon" (having locker problems at the time of video):

Yeah all the upload sites are pretty sketchy. I always have to do a lot of waiting/refreshing, but they will all eventually load. The very first one is an awesome example of the massive amount of torque a mild 500 will put out. Basically it's an all motor burnout for about 300 feet, one wheel of course (the locker wasn't working)

My 500 is almost stock so there's no point, yet. I'd do a sound clip but I can't even hear it running unless I'm really listening for it through the stock muffler.

I would love to see a vid of a 71-76 FWB doing a big smokey burnout.
I have pics somewhere of a '74 CDV doing a long one wheel wonder, I should find those and post em :)

ah what the hell... how about the smaller brother? :)

Stock 91k miles 425 with open element 14" Edelbrock air filter.... which is what all the sound is from when the secondaires open..... quite alot of noise just from a free flowing air filter :)

Here is a sound clip of some normal driving... no secondaires but you can kinda hear the suction from the air cleaner.

http://inoventionseast.com/1979 DeVille/VOICE013.MP3

Yeah she has an exhaust leak, you can hear it pretty well in some of the clips.... coming from the left manifold, I am pretty sure is it the gasket and not a cracked manifold, though I don't know.... dosn't bother me anymore.

Maybe I'll upload the sound clips when the hole was in the cat. Damn, that was loud... kind of a droning sound, I didn't like it, but it was loud :)

This is with the old rear tires... which were literally bald... they would spin... alot, but not leave rubber, make smoke... or even make noise... check it out :)

Short burnout... yes, it did get done raining, but it was for that Cadillac contest thing..... this is why those tires were bald :)

No engine sound, but burrying the speedo in 2nd, this was shifting into 3rd at 4,000RPM (about 92mph) I did, once push it to 4,400RPM in 2nd... kinda scary and very loud... that is when I topped out the car at 110mph (GPS verified) in 2nd gear.... never again though, stock 425 really dosn't like that... she will however cruise all day wide open in 3rd, RPM is about 3,700 and it'll maintain 108mph... not too shabby :)

http://inoventionseast.com/1979%20DeVille/'79speedo.wmv

This is simply putting it in drive and hitting the gas... notice how it shifts into 3rd a whole lot sooner then 2nd? (3,400RPM vs. 3,900RPM) really isn't a big deal, but I'll tell ya, on the highway for passing, accelerating, or just messing around, running 2nd gear right to 4,000RPM (speedo burried) really gets the car moving a whole lot faster.

http://inoventionseast.com/1979 DeVille/Caddy1-3drive.AVI

This is just running first gear.... it is easy to see how much the 2.28 gears hold the car back...

http://inoventionseast.com/1979 DeVille/Caddy1stgear.AVI

Here is a random driving video with some speed runs.... this was done to actually test the "compressed MiniDV" mode on the camera... basically the best blend for high quality video/sound, but still a realitivly short file size... this is a pretty high quality video (tho not the best) but considering it is almost 12minutes long and only 61mb of space, I am very happy. Seeing this makes me miss NY :( That was my home town for 18 years... ah well..... still nice video IMO. This was taken on the MiniDV tape itself, the others were on the SD card.

http://inoventionseast.com/1979 DeVille/big testDV.wmv

and... perhaps my favorite movie of the '79 DeVille... can't hear the engine THAT much, because I really didn't need to get on it, let alone open the secondaires... but still, hella cool :)
