We went to a huge "car party" out in the country last night. The guy had a concrete "burn-out pit" and a water hose nearby.... 60's band playing, food, roasted pig, beer, and a couple huge mud trucks ripping through the swamp in the back of the property. Hay rides for the kids. Lots of old cars on display.

Lets just say that the Hurst Roll Control (line lock) worked very nicely when I took the car to the burnout area....
Both kids were in the car at the time, and they were pretty charged-up afterwards. Smoke was still emanating from the interior when we parked it afterwards. Bits of rubber all over the back end. Oh well. Tires are supposed to be replaced every 5 or 6 years, right?

Even the wife was impressed. Amazing!

Would have been sweet to that Purple Chevy Eater sitting there spinning up smoke! You should have gotten a video of that.
Or maybe this guy running through the swamp.

Rick, I've had that picture for some time now and don't remember where I found it. However a google of "thunder-ranchero" turned up this old link. http://www.autoblog.com/2007/05/06/e...under-monster/
