Dodge Dakota Burnout
This is my 1988 451 stroker big block powered 1988 Dodge Dakota. I bought
this truck for $100.00 back in the fall of 1999. This is a very fun vehicle
to drive around town and is very street friendly. The engine is only 9.5:1
and burns 93 octane fuel. It has also run the local 1/8 mile track at to
the tune of 7.40 @ 94 mph with 3.55:1 gears. Needless to say, being that
its just a 1988 dakota...many people with chevelles, chargers, Camaros, corvettes, vipers and Mustangs are shocked when the
realize that they just got thier asses handed to them by a little black
truck. LOL! only kidding. As you can see, burnouts are effortless...more
vids to come. Enjoy!
