Neil from Hudson, Wisconsin of 402 big block Monte Carlo fame has
been at it again and he's sent in a couple of beaut burnout videos, as have
a couple of other fine, upstanding Americans. God bless America and its
big-cube, big-torque V8 burnout machines.

First up is a big smokey one in Neil's 1980 Chevy CK pick-up. It used to
have a 350ci motor but now runs a 305 he's swapped from his Monte Carlo, when
the 350 blew its insides out.
A pretty reliable setup that Neil uses as his
"daily driver, parts hauler, car puller and beer runner..." plus the smokey
burnouts his neighbours hate him for, the 305 motor's specs are:
- Comp cam
- 500CFM Edelbrock Carb
- Hooker Headers
- Accel Ignition
- Some pretty bits for show

Next is Neil's daughter's boyfriend's 1985 1985 Buick Regal, with its 350ci small
block Chev motor stacked with "all the goodies." It sure has some poke and doesn't
have any trouble leaving its tyres in a shredded, smoking mess all over the road.
This massive beast speaks for itself, and sounds fantastic as well as looking
pretty hot doing an effortless burnout somewhere in a suburban shopping centre car
park or something. What we love to see!

Apparently the Chevy Silverado pickup in this video has nitrous.
I wouldn't be surprised considering the way it struggles a bit to make the
tyres slip, then suddenly roars into life and becomes a tyre-shredding monster.
