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.
