When they were engineering students at McMaster University in Ontario, Phil Weicker and Duncan Forster built a hot tub inside a 1969 Cadillac DeVille. It remains a fully functional car, with the original engine in the front. The water circulation system in the trunk processes 5,000 pounds of water and keeps it at a comfortable 102°F.
Weicker and Forster want to take the Carpool DeVille to the Bonneville Speedway. This area in the Bonneville Salt Flats of Utah is ideal for land speed racing. If Weicker and Forster are successful, they will drive the Carpool DeVille on the speedway, making it the fastest hot tub in the world.
They recently conducted a Kickstarter funding project to acquire what they need to transport the car to Utah and equip the car with the safety gear necessary to drive at Bonneville. Over the weekend, they passed their $10,000 goal.
Here's the promotional video from their now-completed Kickstarter project.
