Re: Cop Busts Chevy Chevelle SS Driver For Doing Donuts!

What's up with the officer pulling his gun on the driver? Seems excessive.

I think the driver was an illegal and the SS didn't belong to him. I think the SS belongs to the officer that responded.

Re: Cop Busts Chevy Chevelle SS Driver For Doing Donuts!

It would be a different ball game if he had done that on private property, such as an empty parking lot. But that APPEARED to be a public street, which changes the whole situation.
I don't know where that video was made, but in Okla police have no jurisdiction on public property such as a parking lot-----------------UNLESS someone is injured.
Plus, I think the driver has been watching too many NASCAR finishes.

All the officer heard on his radio was something about "donuts" at the parking lot, and wasted no time to get some. So when he arrived and saw the other kind of donut, he wanted to shoot the guy.

Looks like the gun was to keep the crazed driver from running him over. No telling what this guy had in mind being caught. As for the comment about having fun. NUTS........

Exactly...Officer safety. With all the meth heads in the world today, never know what could happen next.

Re: Cop Busts Chevy Chevelle SS Driver For Doing Donuts!

That guy is an idiot.....I can't believe he was doing that over the drainage dip....

It's not good to do donuts in an A-body.....too hard on the car...that's what F-bodys are for...

as far as the cop.....He just wanted to show that he's on a bigger power trip...

'69 300 Deluxe SS396 sport coupe
'68 El Camino SS396.................
and some other stuff with wheels....

Re: Cop Busts Chevy Chevelle SS Driver For Doing Donuts!

This is not a doughnut, it was a drifter, title should reflect.
Mistakes made by drifter:
1 The whole idea is to do a doughnut is that you have enough torque over tire to sustain it in a circle. Having to throw the car in a skid is not acceptable.
2 If you can't do this and are in front of people showing off your a moron.
3 Knowing when to stop comes with age. Driving out again to do it, is stupid.
4 A-body will do tighter circle with driver to outside of spin, shouldn't, but being left handed, they do. More G force too. A lot of NASCAR drivers do this when they win, could be the stagger on the car.

Police were correct in that it was public endangerment with a moving moron. If it had been a tight circle, they would have been impressed.

Lessons learned if you do this:
1 Don't show off. My Drivers Ed teacher asked the class if they would do this stuff if no one was around. Yep, I got in trouble, that was in 1974.
2 Know when to stop. STOP There is always another day.
3 Take it out of town, no one around to hurt, no passengers. If it isn't fun, your only doing it to show off.
4 The "F" body response, BIG circles less strain, more control.
City stuff like this are reserved for rice burners, new age, new rule. BTW if this car was stolen, and this guy did this, Triple Golden Award for being a stupid moron.

And for the people that are against this stuff, and in this hobby, I'm sure you never did or do anything like this. I agree sanctioned events are the way to do it, but y'all own cars and test drive them illegally, but that's different.
FYI my last doughnut was in the early 80's before I drove sanctioned events. Only the acceptable test drives now.
