This Classic Chevrolet Pickup Rips Earth-Shaking V8 Burnouts For America

Let’s face it: the great American V8 engine note is practically our other national anthem. Here’s a classic 1981 Chevrolet Silverado pick-up that’s singing the song of our people and roasting red and blue tires into smoke.

This is Erik Hans’ truck from the 2017 Cruisin’ Sherwood burnout contest, where he burns down Highway Max red and blue colored-smoke tires to great effect.

If you notice a strange water spot on the Statue of Liberty’s face right now, it’s probably because this truck is so rad, it can even make a giant copper symbol of our nation shed a single tear.

I bet that cloud smells like freedom. It’s the burnout America deserves.

I’m sure Stef is thrilled that her content is being tilled for ‘Murica in order for herb [lowercase, because no respect] to be able to pretend he knows what he is doing and generating revenue. The only thing going for herb is that he was not rich or popular enough to be rubbing elbows with Jeffrey Epstein at this point.

Fuck you, herb. And fuck what America is right now.
