A Cadillac CTS funny car is the best CTS by default

Proposed nostalgia-themed flopper looks sensational

Last week, I got reacquainted with the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe after a couple years' hiatus. It's still great looking, the CUE-free interior works fine, and it reminds me that the current CTS-V is the greatest muscle car produced by the United States of America, ever. It's just ridiculous. I've ridden shotgun in the CTS racing car, and it's an even more apocalyptically insane experience.

But come late June, the ultimate CTS may well belong to Dale Creasy, Sr., who hopes to bring the CTS funny car you see above into the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, as reported by . "Cadillaction," as it's called, is a decidedly contrarian ride, wearing graphics and bodywork that's markedly different from the that populate the pro circuit today.

Of course, modern funny cars look the way they do for good reason: the bodywork helps keep them planted as they transfer thousands of horsepower to the tarmac. Creasy apparently thinks that the CTS's aero styling will help it close the gap and be competitive. Whether that's wishful thinking or not will play out in due course: he hopes to have the Caddy funny car ready for the NHRA event in Joliet, Illinois at the end of June. And regardless of its success or lack thereof, Creasy's CTS ought to be a crowd-pleaser.

Head on over to for the full scoop.
