There is something fascinating about the kids of the 1950's. A-side Beach Boy tracks, poodle skirts, sock hops, etc... Those are the warm and charming side effects of the generation after going through decades of filtering. That's not the fascinating...

Actually, I think we were called JD's...for "juvenile delinquents"...and by "we" I mean most of the car guys back in high school...I got into my share of "trouble" ...and my share of my friends as well...

I wrote two books about it- "Bangin' Gears & Bustin' Heads" and "Fast Cars, 4-speed & Fist-fights"...and the stories in them actually started right here on the HAMB...

Told my girl I just had to forget her. I'd rather buy me a new carburator. So she made tracks sayin' this is the end now. Cars don't talk back they're just four wheeled friends now!

Love that video! Reminds me of days gone by. About 20 years ago or so I was out one night doing donuts in an O/T vehicle I had borrowed from my dad. Flipped it over. Robelticia was with me, he remembers it well also. The next morning my dad looked at it in the driveway as said "Well, I guess you bought it" and turned around and walked back in the house. Robleticia helped me push the roof out well enough to get a windshield back in it and I sold it at a loss (of course).

That big flatbed comin' by sideways is awesome.

Kinda sad how many kids won't get the chance to do donuts, unless they're goin' in reverse (FWD). Yay rear-drive cars!

Ahh yes, the joyous dance of the donut.

I busted out some victory donuts in an O/T 4x4 at the shop one night. I was pretty happy we just got a motor swapped into my 49 Chevy and celebrated as we were leaving by doing perfect flat spins in the parking lot.... which was mud, dirt, and gravel.

I finished and let the dust settle all around me expecting to see all my cheering fans begging me to do a few more.....

All I saw was Benny staring at me.... then his truck.... then me. I could read his lips as his hands came flying up like an angry Italian and he said " DUDE, WHAT THE F***".

Apparently one of the mud tires had chucked a rock through his back window and he was not very happy. I now had to budget in a back window to my engine build. I of course had it replaced the very next day.

To be dumb and young... wait nevermind. That was last year.

Good video too, thanks for sharing. I wish we had recorded mine that night, the look on Bennys face was priceless. If priceless is about $150 for a Silverado rear window without defroster.

We never get snow ! However I took my share in an empty parking
lot (with permission of the owner ) one winter in Detroit ... until the
car started to smell funny .... it was a rental though!

Thanks for the great video.

We did that with some regularity in the HS parking lot when I was 1st licensed. Had a contest once, how many times could we go around on 1 donut. I could go almost 4, the other guys like 1 or 2. They didn't know how I was doin it and I didn't tell em. I went bigger once and went so long I had the oil light flashin! Had the sense to stop right away. But it wasn't always kids. Back in 65 my dear departed Dad had a welding shop in Lincoln Pk. He shared the space with his fellow Flat Rock racers and 2 of em met in the alley out back right after the city paved it. It was Dick Mitchell and John Rieburger for you locals that are greyer than I. Dick was pulling out, John pulling in, niether would move for the other so Dick hit the bumper on John's AD with his 59 Ford PU. John winds it up (had a SBC in it) and Dick follows suit (a Y block V8). Here comes the smoke from their tires. John was getting the best of him, then it was Dick gettin the best of John, and while it only lasted 2-3min I thought it would never end. Johnny was over powered and got pushed out of the alley in a blaze of tire smoke. I said to Dad how kool it was and that Dick won. He reminded me that they were just havin fun and Dick didn't win anything. I shouldn't think of trying that when I get older. Well fast forward to '97. I have this 89 F250HD with a 460 and the other guy had a Dodge 1500 4X4. After the "big dick" contest of who had the most power I decided to hook em up but he had to be in 2WD. He cheated and was in 4 Low, my truck was only a 2WD. I had him for about 150' until I hit gravel and lost traction. It brought back fond memories of a couple of my local heros from 65. Once a hoodlum, always a hoodum.

Reminds me of being 15 and out in my mom's car.

Great video, I love seeing old cars sliding around for some reason.
Do me a favor and punch me in the face.
