I Did This Once Too

Right around the corner from my house, in a 66 Mustang with a built 289. I had only had it a week.
The cop was up the street around the corner of a building and I didn't know it.

I lit that Mustang up with a good Powerbrake , held it to the floor and then let the brakes off.
It completely smoked out for an entire city block.

The second I let out of it the cop nosed out in front of me a block down on the other side of the street.

He didn't even get to turn his lights on, I just coasted up in front of him and shut it off.

I couldn't see anything in my mirrors except white smoke and the rubber marks in the street didn't go away for over a year.

That was an expensive burn out, let me tell ya.

Pulled out of a 7-11 once like that. I told my friend "pretty cool huh" he looked back and saw a Las Vegas Metro cop sitting in the tire smoke as it blew away. They let me off with a warning. Only to get speed competition, exhibition of power, exhibition of speed, attemping to elude, minor on possession, possession of false identification and possession of a controlled substance. That was expensive and I was stupid or had big balls back then because I did it by the local substation.
