Porky's MN - Final Sat night burnouts - Part 1
A Minneapolis-St. Paul icon, Porky's Drive-In on University Avenue in St.
Paul MN, closed its doors on April 3, 2011. Sadly, after a 58-year history,
the popular hangout for hot-rodders & car buffs is no more. Light rail
construction is forever changing the face of University Avenue and the
owner felt that it would no longer be possible to stay in business. For
decades, the 'University Avenue cruise' has been considered one of the top
Friday/Saturday night cruises in the US for auto enthusiasts, and Porky's
was the destination. On most any weekend evening from April through
September, one could find University Avenue filled with hot-rods for
blocks, and by 8-9 PM, there was usually a waiting line just to park in
From Friday through Sunday, thousands of people came to have their last
meal at the drive-in - many driving from other towns. Hundreds of
hot-rodders took their cars out of storage early for the occasion, and many
paid their last respects by doing burnouts right on the street in front of
the restaurant. From Friday evening through Sunday evening, burnouts had
the right-of-way on University Avenue. No traffic could pass without
waiting for cars doing burnouts - in both lanes. Traffic was directed by
fellow hot-rodders. In all my years of hot-rodding, I had never seen
anything like this happen on a public street that wasn't officially blocked
off - until now. This was a unique celebration of the end of a 58-year
tradition. To their credit, the local police did not intervene.
A fitting end for an old, familiar friend. Farewell Porky's. You will be
missed. The sound of 100,000 horsepower slowly fades into
memory. A whisper of the past....echoing forever down the rails....

Final cut of the GTO video. Missed out on a few shots such as the big
burnout due to weather constraints. I think it came out pretty well though.

Blown mud truck
***This video was taken while the truck was still under construction***440
with 671 blower, Dynoed 680 horse@ 6600 RPM. We
decided to test out my transmission , the first run I think I accidently
bumped it to neutral, second run was clean all the way through 3rd gear.
Good thing I dont plan to shift in the mud anyway, its just nice to know
things are working properly! I need to upgrade to 70 shafts in the front
before I lock it! Heres a couple links to the videos of this in the mud:
