Like you stole it......
I saw this a few weeks ago and instantly thought this guy is a mad man..he would have made a good living in and around the Blue Ridge Mountains hauling Shine back in the day...he can drive! HRP
thats fucking cool!!!
it handles better that i thought it would, it kinda makes me wanna try it!
That is cool. Sounded good also.
It's easy to get so wrapped up with the "iconic" aspects of a custom that we forget how to enjoy them. This shoebox driver definitely has his priorities straight and he's enjoying his machine to the max.
That is the best handling shoebox I have ever seen. Notice how flat it corners.
@Tuck I don't know why your not doing this too.
If I was driving a stolen car I would obey every stop sign, every speed limit, every rule of the road. I would even carefully check before I started off that all the lights are working correctly, tires inflated, plates properly screwed on. You can get pulled over for a blown license plate bulb you know.
So yeah, drive it like you stole it is a good motto at any time.
I bet when he finished, everyone else just decided to go home.
"Shit, Yurgen just killed it. Cant top that!!"
The manager at my work showed me this video a few weeks ago, I dont know how true it is, but someone had told him that this was used to for graphic imaging for the first Cars movie for the scene where Doc does a rip around the dirt track.
"Turn left to go right, crazy old car"
Cool! I like it!
I know these 2 would be proud

No thanks, I LIKE my cars too much to drive like a lunatic!
Man that take me back seening the old Shoebox sidways" Like to see it on black top doing the same" Shit Hot"
I think it's great.
Thats a bullshit story your boss heard.That video has been shot at last month and when was the first Cars movie released?
Friend of mine is a previous owner of that shoebox and the frame is from a newer car(it came from Malibu,if i remember right),so i think thats why the handling is better than its usually in shoeboxes.
I would love to do that.........with someone else's car.
I like my customs low and slow, just like my BBQ...
Thanks for the correction Finnrodder. Like I had said, I didnt know how true it was. Now I do.
It's funny how much learning to drive you can do when you have access to an old gravel pit. My friends and I aged 13-15 learned to be drift kings before we ever heard of drifting doing this same type of driving in my 55 ford more door 272. Like this round and round we went because we were too young to have drivers licenses for the street.
The MVD inspector I was driving with during my license test had me pull over and I thought OH crap I guess I failed my test. He looked at me and laughed and asked "OK kid how much bootleg driving have you been doing?" Needless to say I passed my test.
Now that made my day brighter!
On the gas for sure. I'm not going to say it 'handled great' but I will say that he knew exactly what it was going to do and consistency will beat raw speed any day. From watching the video you can tell he drives it hard. A lot. And that is most definitely a good thing. Cool vid.
I have trouble just keeping light road dust off my shoebox ! But I was impressed !
Painting the fence!
Drive your customs...
Heres my 54 last year ?
Hell, that's better than that jerk Richard from ASS MONKEY does
Holy crap.............Shades of Thunder Road.
