I would roast my '76 but the tires are brand new. I have done it accidentally though while pulling outta my driveway. 500s make it easy.....

1968 was the first year for the 472 V8. Those were flat out nasty motors until they dropped the compression. My 350 TBI would do a decent burnout if it had a posi-track rear.

Your 68 is really a 70.

Chad, that is freakin' hilarious. The exhaust smoke coming out of that '76 CDV before it's obliterated by all the tire smoke reminds me of this:

^ Ahh, the good ol BUFF. My uncle is a Lt. Col. in the Air Force and used to be stationed on the base in Minot, ND, home of the B-52. It was so cool. At just about any time of the day you could look out a window of the house and see one soaring through the sky or making a nice large, banking turn.

What are those? Afterburners?

^ That is nothing more than Americans doing what Americans do best, kicking ass!

I got this for Christmas from my uncle. It is a decal that I am going to put on the back of my Isuzu and I will be buying another one for my Caddy in the spring. You can purchase them here and they come in a few different colors. Mine is actually white. http://stores.ebay.com/Eighth-Air-Force-Museum-Association_Decals-Stickers_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZ1QQfsubZ20450993QQftidZ2QQ tZkm

What are those? Afterburners?No afterburners. They're just very smokey. All early jets were like that on take off, including civilian planes like the 707. Some early jets used water injection to boost power on takeoff, and those things were even smokier.

That is my contribution... alot better than letting rubber spit all over my perfect panels :burn:

SBCs can burn 'em too!

^ Elias, I am assuming that is yours. What kind of RWHP were you getting on that run. Exhaust sounds great by the way!

That was in spring 2007, it made 241 hp and 289 ft/lbs of torque to the rear wheels. I am not sure how much drivetrain loss there is, but that should be over 300 hp at the crank.

I am going to dyno it again this spring, it has a few more mods now ;)

Before I put it away for winter, I had a run in with a modified 2005 Grand Prix GTP (3.8 series II s/c'd).... I beat him 3 times :yup: He had me pull over so he could see the "grandpa" car that ate his GTP.

this is kind of a odd question, but how do you do a burnout in an automatic? I heard that I am supposed to step on the brakes. that results in bogging. Just hopping on it just accelerates the car (who knew). Ideas?

Its easier in a car with a lot of horsepower and torque, and depends a lot on the tires. My 1999 Z28 would spin the tires at 60mph in cold weather with the summer tires(designed for warm weather).

Assuming your car is RWD, put your left foot on the brake and floor the accelerator with your right foot. Ease up on the brake until it starts to roll forward, then apply just enough pressure to keep it from rolling. Should light up the tires pretty good, but its hard on the rear brakes.

Ah yes, the brake stand. It makes for a spectacular stationary burnout, but I always liked to just floor it from a stop and see what she'll do...the old fashioned way. I think that's the true measure of a car's burnout capabilities. I can do a brake stand in my S320. I can't do a burnout from a stop...just not enough power for such a heavy car. Now, my LT1 Roadmaster could do a burnout from a stop, along with the obvious brakestand, so that car was a winner in my book, atleast when it comes to doing silly things with your rear tires.
