If you want to make yourself stand out in a sea of awesome burnouts, bolting a set of purple tires onto your 1972 Ford Falcon XA is a pretty awesome way to do it. That's exactly what Australian Gary Myers did at last week's Summernats held in Canberra.
It's easy to assume that this epic burnout to end all epic burnouts was what got an infamous burnout king banned from one of Australia's biggest car shows, but the reality is hidden somewhere behind the field of tiresmoke.
An Australian police officer was found guilty for the brutal beating this past May of a 32-year-old man caught laying burnouts outside a police station. A police-car dashboard camera caught the beatdown, as the officer kicked the driver and smashed him with a baton. Watch the chilling video below.
I could spend hours dreaming of owning various kei-cars, weirdo Japanese wagons, and vans like the Toyota Hiace. Yet, for every American fantasizing about tiny JDM cars, there's apparently a kid in Japan yearning for some giant Detroit metal. Here's what happens when they get their wish.
An Audi R8. A snow-covered parking lot. A disregard for property financial well-being approaching Charlie Sheen levels. It's a delight to watch.
Beating rental cars is nothing new, but there are limits to how far you can push it and get your deposit back. Especially if you're attempting to jump a rented 2010 Camaro SS over train tracks. Ouch. Warning: NSFW language.
The authorities in Wangaratta who popped a Honda-driving hoon for doing approximately 130 mph in a 70 mph zone not only impounded his car, they also verbally smacked him around a bit. Aussie cop disses, below.
The video of two hoons stunt driving across one of Dubai's most dangerous highways caused a major controversy. Now the police have arrested the drivers and impounded their cars. Remember, be careful YouTube-ing your crimes, kids. (H/T to c0de!) [ArabianBusiness]
This is a Subaru STI. This is an ice-covered dirt track in the middle of Utah. And this is a man driving a car with a dab of oppo. This post? This is our guide to hooning a Subaru.
Ken Block's Ford Fiesta made its competition debut this weekend at Michigan's Sno*Drift Rally. Block retired early with suspension problems, but his car lived long enough to give the world some wicked video. Special-stage snow hoonage and gallery action below.
Here's what not to do when your Ford Fiesta slides on ice in a tiny English village. And, yes, jumping from your car as it spins will get you run over.
In proper hands a beater 1967 Camaro with a 454 cubic inch V8 and a T-bar shifter creates an artwork of sound and fury no namby-pamby painter could ever muster. This one lives in Sweden and drifts dirt tracks.
Dozens of videos were posted on YouTube this year showing a valet at the Hyatt Hotel in downtown St. Louis doing donuts, peeling out, burning out, revving engines and spinning tires in expensive cars. You know, being normal valets.
What do you get when you combine one Rally America star, one factory WRC driver, and one of the coolest two-wheel-drive rally cars ever built? A bunch of grown men giggling, that's what. Strap in, kiddies.
We never really got the "ghost-riding" craze the kiddies seemed so excited about a while back. However, we're much more amused by this fella ghost-donuting his car. Now that takes skill (and a trusting crowd).
