I am pretty sure if someone does this in their car, they didn't restore it. Don't get me wrong it looks like fun till I figure the melted tire on my quarter and all the chips I now have to repair and a new set of dual red bans. That being said, this man is enjoying his car.
I guess it boils down to maturity, I am still a kid myself.

1968 S-code Torino Fastback= project
1966 A-code Mustang coupe=Basket case not sure what to do with it used some parts for the fastback.
If you plan this sort of thing ahead of time you can smear some Vaseline on the quarters behind the wheels. Then all the rubber bits just wipe right off. My problem is such stuff always seems to be spontaneous.
With somewhere in the neighborhood of 600hp, TKO 5 speed transmission, 4.11 gears with a Detroit True Trac, and a heavy duty driveline with traction bars, I most certainly intend to drag race my car, road race it, and do burnouts. I've done every bit of work on my car so far with the exception of engine machine work. I've built my car to run.
With all that said. I'll do those things at the appropriate times in the appropriate places. I'll drag race it at the track, road race it on a road course and do burnouts on private property where I'm allowed to do that. Not out in a public location. The video in question appears to have been made in a culdesac (sp?) where there was a parked car. Not a good place to do that. Loose control just a little bit and he might have smacked that parked car or a curb.
From the been there, done that and got the t-shirt school. (No, I've never hit another car).

I built mine from a total pile of junk once.... anything I do to it can be built again... it has been to the strip, many burnouts, etc. and it still runs and drives great.....
Everything I build gets driven hard.... I decided that I would build things to last early, as my now 19yo son is not very easy on equipment (alot like me my wife and mom say)... LOL
