Back around 1970 we were hanging around a local engine builder/racer's
shop oohing and aahing over a new set of sticky drag slicks. A kid with a
small block Nova said he could spin them. -It Was On!- We bolted the slicks
on his car. He backed her out into the street, matted the gas pedal and side
stepped the clutch. The rear axle rotated in it's mounts about 90 degrees
and the car never moved. I forget what the bet was but I doubt if he was
forced to pay up.
