Jumping The Firebird
He brought it over, after having started it after 16 years in the barn. He shut it down after I said NOT TO, he had to prove to me it would start. It didn't. So, we jumped her!
The classic still runs.

1978 Trans Am 360 doughnut burnout in super tight space !!!
Only a trained stunt man should try something this crazy! Notice there is a tow truck in front, a Tahoe behind, and a telephone pole across the street. Plus, only a WS6 Trans Am with a 400 pontiac and tight rear end can pull a controlled 360 burnout in such a tight space with total control of the car at all times!
