These cars are meant to driven and the more spirited driving the better....

It is a sin to let these cars sit. I feel sooo much sadness for those people who have non driven concurs cars thinking they are enjoying themselves owning a boat anchor.

Too each his own, but your not getting the full experience of owning a car if it is not driven like it is meant to be.

That includes beating the piss out of it and putting her away wet at times.

I agree with this 110%. No garage queens at my house. My 65 gets between 6-8k miles/yr going to work in the summer. All fun back roads, a few peel outs if I'm feeling particularly frisky, playing with Honda's etc. This is my toy car. I was never one of those kids that left a toy in the original packaging like the guy in "40 Year Old Virgin".

I loved it!

I dont build them to baby em.
The day I worry more about paint chips rather than having fun in my car is the day I look for another hobby.
My last car I couldn't take out without my son 8 and daughter 13 demanding a smoky burnout. When the Mustang is done I expect the same.

Like others have said... if you can build it once, build it again! The Pam is a great idea. And if there's some rubber on my paint... so what? Dings happen, dents happen, life happens. If I managed to keep my car in impeccable condition it'd be only because I never took it out of the garage - and that won't happen. I'm not going out of my way to destroy my paint, but I'm not going to baby the car constantly.

Wish I could do donuts like that! Hell, even one donut. Never have found a good place in my immediate area to figure it out without the cops coming down.

That looks like fun. Those tires sure put down some heavy black rubber. Has anyone ever caught their back wheels on fire doing a burnout?

At times, I succumb to the juvenile urge to burn rubber. If my '65 runs like I hop eit will, I'm sure I'll be testing the car. Luckily I have an '06 Mustang and I have no problem doing burn outs in that car.

Here's a slideshow set to ZZ Top's 'Manic Mechanic'. It seems lame compared to the guy in the Shelby...unfortunately I didn't have a video camera, so all I have is this slideshow compilation. It was time for new tires, and before I went to the tire store I completely thrashed the old ones. I did a few straight-line burnouts and a bunch of donuts. This is at a school parking lot near my house, the tire marks are still there.

When I was finished having fun I drove to the tires store. When we got the wheels off the car I noticed that big chunks of the tires were missing, I guess torn off by the heat and friction. I'm glad I didn't have a blowout or have tread separation!



Cheers!

Pretty sure you are going to be doing peg leg burnouts, no? Unless you start working the brakes to force torque splitting?

Nope. When you put power to the rearend, both tires will spin. I was worried about that when I bought the car and the True Trac came in it. But trust me, i've tested it.
