Many people have set out to turn cars into hot tubs, but none have been as successful as the engineering group at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada. Two alumni have been working together for years to create the ultimate Carpool DeVille from a 1969 Cadillac DeVille.
Now, they want to take that Cadillac-turned-hot tub to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah and set a land speed record for the “World’s Fastest Hot Tub.” They, however, need some help. They set up a Kickstarter campaign and need $10,000 to make it to the race. As of this writing, there were fewer than 10 hours left in the campaign with less than $1,000 to go before they reach their goal.
The engineering pair, Duncan Forster and Phil Weicker, aim to drive over 100 mph across the salt flats—definitely a bold goal for a converted hot tub.
Here at Plaza Cadillac, we hope this dynamic duo is able to reach their fundraising campaign. We’d love to see a hot tub race over the desert at 100 mph!
