Elevenses...

"The Mutt" left a nice long set of elevenses on the road today. Amazing what proper fuel flow will do for engine power.

Yup! That's what it looked like.

I've never had a car that could do that. Of course, practical me, I immediately thought of the 500 miles or more worth of tread I just left on the pavement.

11's are for the street, congrats!! Fun stuff! Made the build worth it, gotta love Pontiac torque! I just laugh when I think I have to replace the tires at 5k miles, should put a smile on your face! It sucks trying to get the rubber out of the inner fenderwells. I leave the rubber on my 90 454 SS as a victory badge!

Burning rubber since 1982!!
My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.

In the mid '80's I worked for a large tire company, and had access to an endless supply of 14" bias ply "take offs" for my '65 GTO. They always had about 1/3 of their life left, and they were free. I would burn through them in a week and mount up another set. There were a lot of "elevens" back then, and a lot of rubber smoke inside the car!! I ran bias-belted junk on that car until the early '90's when I'd sort of "matured" and ante'd up for radials......It seems that my u-joints and clutches last forever these days!

Had a pair of Sears tires years ago that I got used and put on my 73 GS 350 Buick. They made the most acrid green smoke lol. I mean it stunk! Got busted once by a park ranger and he got out and measured em at well over 100 feet long. He chewed me out but I never got in any trouble over it. I remember seeing the speedo hovering around 90 mph in third and the car just sitting there enveloped in smoke. Ah memories.....

Post some pics of those, I was actually considering starting a thread myself on burnouts and road tatoos. There are quite a few at a stoplight in front of the GM Wentzville plant. And it's a flashing yellow.

It will double as a smoke factory. Just ship me your new tires. I will gladly mount them, fry them and return them as slicks!!!!
