90 caddy drag car

Hey everyone i have a 90 caddilac deville that I want to turn into a mid to high 10 second drag car I'm stuck on what i want to do yet so was wondering if y'all have any ideas or thoughts about it. Its not something you see everyday on the track so i think it would be pretty cool and unique.

I predict you'll change your mind about this once you begin writing checks.
Want to go 10's for relatively cheap? Buy an old front engine dragster, drop in a small block Chevy with a 4-bbl carb. I've seen it done more than once for less than $10K, which is about 1/3 of what you'd have in that Cadillac heap. It's easy to say 10's, it's another thing to run 10's.

If you double the HP and cut the weight to 2,000 pounds,then that might go 10s
