With great power comes great responsibility. The driver of this Chevrolet Chevelle doesn’t seem to know how to maintain the muscle car’s power.
During a recent car event in the UK, held every year at the Doncaster school for the deaf, the owner of a Chevelle displayed his muscle car on the grass, turning lots of heads. It’s hard to say what has been done to the vehicle’s engine but it’s clearly been comprehensively modified and likely produces extraordinary amounts of power.
After pulling out onto the road, the owner thought it would be a good idea to show off to the crowds by performing a burnout. It didn’t go well. Perhaps the driver pressed the throttle a little too much or was too slow to lift their foot off when the car started losing it, but the results speak for themselves.
Footage taken in the immediate aftermath of the crash shows that the Chevelle, complete with its pristine red and black paint scheme, slid into the brick wall of a nearby house. Not only did this destroy the wall but it caused some hefty damage to the front of the car, wrecking a quarter panel, one of the wheels, the bumper, and a headlight.
It’s not a pretty sight but we would be lying if we felt bad for the owner. Driving like this on public roads, particularly those where other cars and dozens of children are around, is a pretty stupid idea. Things are only made worse when you don’t have the skill to perform a burnout like this.
