Donuts or Burn Outs?

Donuts or Burn Outs?

It’s hard to say which one is more fun to do, and neither of them are exactly “smart” things to perform with your car, but which maneuver is more your style? Laying a straight patch of rubber and a white smokey cloud, or pitching your front wheels to one side and making the rear ones try to catch up in circles? I’m pretty darn sure this old 8mm (video) film has appeared on here somewhere before, but it’s pretty amusing to watch these guys driving like nut cases on ice and snow-covered roads in Cumming, Georgia in the early 60s. At one point a huge 3/4 ton flat bed truck even gets out there and does a few rounds! Luckily no one got in an accident with all the wreckless spinning so close to traffic!  If the snow-covered donuts aren’t your sweet treat, there is some great late 60s drag footage with gassers launching off the line briefly towards the end of the video.
