The Cadillac Fleetwood is big. Like really big. MotorWeek's staff thinks you need a harbor pilot or truck driving lessons to be qualified to get behind the wheel.
The SS Fleetwood (Get it? Nautical reference! The car is large!) only has 185 horsepower but makes up for it with 300 pound feet of torque, which is technically classified as a "boatload."
This is the first time I've seen a Fleetwood on a drag strip. It's also the first time I've heard a 10.5 second 0 to 60 run be called "brisk."
Ok, enough of me. Pull up anchor and watch away!
