I thought the tag line was "i dreamed i was xxxx, in my maidenform bra!" He was definately dreaming, if he thought that was a burnout!
LMAO, too funny!
Wow! Bet that smelled great!!
Smokeless, rubberless burn out, must be some new health law! Jeff
Bet that one impressed all the homies. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA
I burned a clutch once pretty good like that....I still groan out loud when I think about it. Brutal.
What do you think the chances are that brat never did a physical days work in his life? Because if he did sweat and save for that car he just maybe might not have intentionally revved that motor up until it disintegrated.
I may be wrong, he sure revved it to the moon, but i dont think that was an engine explosion. I think that was metal to metal nonexistant clutch disc.
I think your right, but id bet he won't himself be under that car changing a clutch,,,,, I guess im just being a old man, raised in a time you destroyed your own stuff you fixed your own stuff maybe im wrong but `dam that engine was screaming, us guys that did our own wrenching and paid for our own stuff, knew the value
It would've been great to see the red hot pressure plate under there, right as it fragged itself silly. We had a guy at my work who would do imaginary burnouts on his Japanese cruiser bike everyday as work let out. I'll bet his clutch was slowly turning more into a torque converter!
LOL! Put a new clutch, plate, t-o brg, & resufaced the wheel on a 5.0 'Stang early '90's. Kid pulls up, out a couple nights later, BS's to Us, then forgets He yanked the park-brake. Lol! After We finally get Him to let off the loud pedal, & inform Him "that's THE CLUTCH BURNING!!!", He asked Me......." You think I hurt it?".... "Nope" I said, "I KNOW it's toast".......sigh....
smokeless burnout...would that meet California emissions lol
I think the same way, when I was in high school, there were a couple of kids whose parents were well off, but most of us had a working class upbringing and we valued our cars and other things because we understood the sacrifice of having to work for something. Most of the kids I went to school with had a part time job and paid for what they wanted or needed. The few whose parents gave them everything were easy to spot, their cars were newer and/or nicer than the junk we drove, and they were always asking for help with the smallest of problems. They were also of course the same ones that crashed or blew up their cars, simply because they had no investment in it, neither in cash or what I called sweat equity. Mom and dad would just buy another one or pay for the repairs. I know without any doubt that everyone here has seen the same thing in their own life.
74 super beetle automatic stick flintstone brakes push start. Wisconsin winters, no real heat, no real brakes, tinny one speaker squeaking out punk/metal......fucking heaven.
LOLOL. One more reason not to own a beetle. Used to be a couple folks I knew from my home town had gasoline fired heaters in their veeeeee-dubs. Wonder what THAT does to mileage?
Seen a guy with vette do the same thing on YouTube.
I test drove a 240Z that had a slipping clutch...same deal: rev it in gear and it would just lazily accelerate...still should have bought it for $1400! Had an aircooled 71 Honda AN600 car, had direct exhaust manifold heating (think like a carb preheater hose) that directed plenum air over the exhaust manifold into the cab. Had a gasket leak and I'd get pretty tired driving that car in the winter...wonder why? Almost instant heat though, 1 minutes that thing was blowing hot. That thing ALWAYS started up in about 1/2 second...electric fuel pump and VV Keihin carb...?
^^And then there were the Suzuki "Mini Brutes". A then friend bought a junker and was going to put a Datsun pushrod 1200 in, which he did. BUT I ASKED HIM at some point, "was he sure" about the gearing, as I knew the 2 stroke original revved to the sky. "Yeh I checked it has 5:38 axles." Well what he DID NOT check is the TRANSFER case. Back then, conventional Jeep/ Bronco/ etc cases were 1:1 in high, and "about" 2:1 in low range. That damned Mini-Brute was about 2:1 in HIGH range!!! he later swapped in a Jeep transfer and "I guess" used it a lot. We were far apart by then.
My sister had a 74 beetle with the gas heater, and I drove one in my first "real" job delivering pizza when I was 16. The heaters worked ok, sometimes, but yes gas mileage was very poor, and it was always a bit odd seeing exhaust coming out of the front wheel well of a beetle.
How the hell did he not know the difference in smells, I saw a Corvette dude do that crap too on YouTube....dummies with monies.
