I guess that's why you see so many Olds motors in Super Gas and Super Comp.

Peer pressure?

Itsa nasty habit, addictive, and a hard habit to break.....
but better than chewing up parts and spitting them out.

Met an old high school girlfriend I hadn't seen since she was 21, and one of the first things she asked me was.....
"Remember how we used to smoke the tires in your white car?.. do you still do that?"

No Honey, the car is red now.......

I love the smell of rubber in the morning.
(addicted to smoke for 50 years....lol)

Because the driver likes to endanger innocent bystanders?

That would be my guess.

Save it for the track....according to your statements you are doing 45 mph approximately 3 feet from a guy in a motorcycle jacket, in a no passing zone, through an intersection.

...and then you started a thread to show everyone? Way to lose your bearing Seaman.

yes it was on a private road with safety crew (police and fire dept)on other end.
notice the other rubber marks on the asphalt?
burnouts were part of the carshow at the end.
and im not a seaman actually an E-8 senior chief.
