Sure it's a front-driver, but it's still a burnout! Thanks Eddie.

More of Eddie's FWD smoke.

Unfortunately I don't recall who sent this in, so if you're the guilty party, e-mail me the info and I'll credit you.

Just your typical shot of a full-size van doing a burnout on a sidewalk. Huh?

Here's Rich's van again.

These pictures are from Ken N. and from an impromptu burnout show on his own street. Some very nice cars in attendance.

These shots come all the way from Sweden! Magnus has having fun with his '72 Camaro RS.
