If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

In 1996, Phil Weicker and Duncan Forrester set out to transform a 1982 Chevy Malibu into a hot tub car. The end results were less than stellar, but rather than giving up, the engineering duo gave it another go.

This time around, the pair decided that they would overhaul a 1969 Cadillac. Their pet project, the "Carpool," may have taken seven years of blood, sweat, and tears to complete, but the end results made it all more than worth it.

This 1969 Cadillac was built for power and speed, making it the perfect fit for housing the world's fastest hot tub.

It became clear that transforming this aging Cadillac wasn't going to be an easy task.

Phil and Duncan began by gutting the interior.

To ensure everything would fit into place, the guys built a plywood frame as a model of the final product.

You can't have a hot tub car without a sick coat of paint.

To prevent any interference with the mechanics and the hot tub parts, a good amount of work had to be put in under the hood.

With the pool lining set in place, it was time to take the hot tub for a spin.

Unlike their past attempt, the finished tub was able to hold water without major damage or leakage.

The car engine also helps heat up the hot tub water.

Who wouldn't want to take a ride in this bad boy?
