Back around 71 (man was it really that long ago
) I guy I was going to trade school with asked the same question. He had his dads car which was a 68/9 4 door Pontiac full size. After much discussion he and a few of his buddies decided the best way would be to take a can of wheel bearing grease and srpead a strip of grease in front of one rear tire (open rear end).
Well, a bunch of us went to watch the big burn out. I got to admit it was really impressive
............and then......the tire ran out of the grease, got traction and snapped the shaft on the rear end pinion.
At least he had a project when we got to the part of the course on setting up rear ends. Of course his dad wasn't real happy
