This Group Of Engineers Have Given A Whole New Meaning To Carpooling, And It's A Huge Improvement.

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines, lean back and find a jet. You've reached "The Carpool" the most relaxing possible answer to the 9-to-5 rush hour. It's The Carpool DeVille and it's the world's fastest moving hot tub.

It began in 1996 when a group of engineering students at Ontario's McMaster University found a great way to procrastinate studying for finals: converting an old Chevy Malibu into the the hot tub and attempting to set a ridiculous world record.

The Carpool quickly became a local legend and was featured in the Canadian International AutoShow. Unfortunately, by the time the Southern California Timing Association (SCTA) came around to sanction a run for the world record, the old car was falling apart.

The engineers went right back to it, getting their hands on a 1969 Cadillac DeVille to create the second version of the mobile hot tub. "The team [has been working] to ready the car, improving its heating, suspension, controls and pool plumbing, while working with the land speed racing community to ensure The Carpool DeVille would meet SCTA's strict safety requirements."
