Just stumbled on to this pic while digging thru some old files on my portable HDD.

It's about 5yrs old... but still pretty fucking cool.


This was done in OC MD in 2004 next to the hotel where a bunch of us stayed for the big Spring Cruise.

I took the picture... the guy in the picture is who did the burnout...

Nobody lit the rubber on fire, it went up in flames all by itself.

It was a sight to behold.

What?

The guy did the burnout, parked the car, and posed for the pic while it was still burning?

Exactly what I was thinking.  "When this baby hits 88 mph, you're going to see some serious shit!"

Yep...  It smoldered for a minute or two before it went up in flames.

He had a junk set of tires on the car just to do burnouts with.

Most of us with hotrods have more than one set of rear tires...  one set for the dragstrip... one set for the street/burnouts.

A common effect done with bleach. Nevertheless, it's cool.

I can testify there was no bleach/water/etc... involved...   This was just a random impulsive act of goofing off.

Here's a few more pics....










This is the car I took down that season.

No, they said the TIRES can't catch fire. In fact, they had a pile of rubber on the ground catch fire too.





And my car can't do this

Mythbusters sucks. Tires indeed catch fire and when they do, it is hell to put them out. I can throw matches into tubs of diesel, that doesn't mean diesel won't ignite, it will.

I'm not in any of the pics, folks. I'm the one behind the camera taking the pics...

Regardless of what Mythbusters says...I'm absolutely POSITIVE that pile of rubber caught on fire all by itself with no outside help. I watched it with my own two eyes and would swear on my father's grave that it happened.

I've actually seen it happen before... just never caught it when I had a camera in hand.

The Chevelle is a '69 and belonged to my buddy Randy... shown pointing at the burnout.

My Camaro was a '70, but was all tube chassis and fiberglass. The only original Camaro parts on that car were the roof panel and rear body panel.
Doors, 1/4's, front end, etc... was all fiberglass.  It weighed 2400lbs the way it sat and had a 632cu in big block Chevy motor in it.
The car could (and did) do wheelies on the street.

On the dragstrip, it took 100" wheelie bars to keep it off the rear bumper...

This is by far the baddest motor I've ever run...  NO nitrous on this thing either... and it propelled the car to an 8.33 @ 165 first time down the track.

Yep, valid PA registration... and the VERY first time I drove it on the street, I didn't get more than a mile from the house before getting pulled over and read the riot act.  Luckily, no tickets, but was told to "take it straight home and don't drive it on these streets again"

I almost got a gun drawn on me too, because the car has lexan windows (that don't roll down) so I had to shut the motor off and open the door to speak with Mr. Occifer.

You guys want some cool car pics ???  I've got a shit-ton of 'em.

I didn't start the thread with that intention, but we can go that direction if demand warrants it. I haven't had my ego stroked in awhile.

I'm pretty sure it was a '63 Pontiac though... something to do with independent rear suspension and a posi.

The closest drag strip to me is actually in canada. I got THOROUGHLY searched at the border because my Laser is stripped..only 2 seats, a dash and the door panels..the border patrol FREAKED out.

Which part? Hold a torch to a pan of diesel, it will catch on fire in time.

Tires burn, they do it in Detroit in the streets on Hallowwen for fun.

Mythbusters sucks

Art, as a Mopar guy, let me just say that's probably the nastiest "street" car I've seen. A friend of mine had a supercharged Hemi `71 Demon that was close, but yours wins that matchup.

Thanks Gus !

I just wish I still had it...    I sold the red Camaro around '04 to buy my M16... to which I later sold to buy another Hot Rod.

I'll throw a few more pics up just for S&G's.
Link Posted: 12/19/2009 7:31:29 PM EDT
Here's the first REALLY fast Camaro I built. My very first was a '67 with a 427/4-speed combo.

This car was a 1970... and got sold in 2001 after my Dad passed away. At the time, my head just wasn't in cars anymore.

This car started out as a $50 basketcase with a blown motor and gallons of bondo holding it together.
After about 10-12 years and countless hours and dollars, I got it to run a best of 8.46 @ 159 with a 511BBC and a shot of nitrous.

This car was also street legal.








Link Posted: 12/19/2009 7:41:38 PM EDT
This is what the Blue car looked like during the several year transformation...

This is what it looked like when I first got it on the road around '87 or so...  Powered by a junkyard 350 and a small shot of nitrous. I blew this motor up racing my buddy in his 1970 440 6-pack/4-spd 'Cuda.


Eventually I got some slicks under it and built a 427 for it.


On the motor and no nitrous, the car would run 11.80's. This was around '89-'90 or so.


During the Winter of '92-'93 I had a buddy of mine do the bodywork and shoot some paint on it.
I built another 427 for it... this time I went with aluminum heads and a roller cam.
On a plate system, this car went 9.93 @ 139.
This pic was taken right after that 9.93 run... during the big Super Chevy Show at Maple Grove in 1993.


And finally, in it's best performance... Super Chevy 1998 it ran 8.46 @ 159.
Three years later it got sold.
