Looks like you could use a 500 Cubic inch Cadillac stump pullin' engine in that thing.
I have one if you're interested.....

Years and years ago when i was a young guy I mated 2 1970 Cadillac Eldorado's to make a nasty 1000 cu. in.twin engine front and rear steering mudder. Didn't finish it 100% but did get to drive it a little. Scary !!!

I was at our local Pull-A-Part once, and found a 1970 Cadillac Eldorado convertible; the 500 was still in it, and it looked fresh (at least the heads did). The car was painted Purple metalflake, and had a white leather interior. While I was yanking the motor, this old black guy came up to me and started telling me that he knew the guy who had owned the car, and that it ran great (he junked it due to rust...the front frame rails were rusted out at the firewall, due to a leaking top that no one bothered to fix). He mentioned that the guy was an honest to God pimp...I told him I never would have guessed!

When the kids were little, about 22 years ago, I had a '73 GRANDVILLE convertible, hated that top mechanism, what a engineering POS....anyway, that thing had the Eldo white leather seats in it for 100 bux outta a junkyard....talk about comfy...regular lounge chair lethal machine....needed a snooze detector wired in....had a 455/400 and 273 posi rear....

5500 lbs filled with helium....

That's the car I taught the kids to wear seatbelts in.....my ex constantly bitching and shouting to wear the seatbelts.....finally I had it, and picked a spot....slammed on the brakes at speed....2 kids on the floor after bouncing off the front seat backs.....little cry comes up outta the pit....'DAAADDDDY!!!' I sex....THAT is why you wear your seat belts....

but that is why I am a conservative...get to the heart of the problem, the ex was liberal as hell, rather fight and argue some essoteric point than get the job DONE.....
