A couple of weeks ago, we introduced our readers to the chaotic YouTube channel known as “Neutral Drop.” This channel stars two Brooklyn-based New Yorkers that work at a junkyard and have almost unlimited access to various barely-running hoopties. The pair take these junkyard-bound jalopies and perform neutral gear drop burnouts in them – which typically results in the engines overheating, the transmissions breaking or both. We first saw them victimize a tired old GMC Savana 2500 work van, but now they’ve turned their attention to something a bit more luxurious: a Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham.
The Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham in this video arrived at the junkyard with a fully working engine and transmission, however the previous owner was involved in a rear-end incident that likely totalled the car. This made it a perfect candidate for Neutral Drop’s antics, as the car has enough power to easily perform neutral drop burnouts, but is bound for the crusher anyway. For this reason, it manages to perform some pretty impressive burnouts in the hands of Neutral Drop’s star driver, Stuntman, although it doesn’t last very long before the port-injected V8 engine overheats and the car begins leaking various fluids.
The exhaust manifolds on the Cadillac Fleetwood actually got so hot performing these burnouts that they started glowing orange, prompting Neutral Drop to call it a day and turn the car off to prevent it from catching fire. They then pour some water on the engine to cool it off and further reduce the risk of a sudden Brooklyn junkyard blaze.
Check out the video embedded below. We must forewarn our Cadillac-loving readers, though, as this video features some unnecessary mistreatment of an innocent Cadillac four-door that they’d probably rather not witness.
