Video: A Burnout To Light Up Your Day

Screen Shot 2014-09-12 at 9.26.03 AMFeeling down? There’s nothing quite like a smokey burnout to put a smile on your face. Whenever we feel a little low, this method always brightens our spirits.

Here we have a 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, which looks stock, but we are assuming there is something more under the hood. The setting is perfect-a deserted country road with rolling green hills in the background. Also a great spot to roll down the windows, and just mindlessly cruise to blow off steam. But this gentleman decided to spice it up a bit and took a video that he posted on Team Chevelle.

He steps on the brake, steps on the gas, and proceeds to remove a thousand miles from the rear tires in exuberant fashion. The tires lose traction with ease, an indication of what’s under the hood. After letting car sit in place for a few seconds and developing a nice cloud of white tire smoke, he eases off the brakes so the car moves forward. This allows a big trail of white smoke to follow the Chevelle, just like a steam locomotive taking off from the train station.

While we can’t see it in the video, we are sure that there is a set of nice, long, black tire marks on the road. A faint reminder of the smoke filled burnout that took place on this back country road. Doesn’t that put a smile on your face just thinking about it?
