By modern social definition, “hoon” is a term applied to anyone who drives a car in a manner which is anti-social by the standards of contemporary society. The specific anti-social behavior is thusly called “hooning.”
When you take a vintage Dodge D100 pickup, equip it with some torquey 440 beast and put a rubber hating “hooner” behind the wheel… you get a pavement tattooing, billowing smoke, tire shredding burnout.
We found this particular video on youtube but unfortunately the video was without description other than the title. We would have loved to gotten more details on the truck or the builder. We can tell you that 440 engines were not standard options for D100′s built in the United States during this period, so the engine is a replacement.
In an case, the truck’s lowered rear end seems to help shift some of the weight to the rear tires to produce one of the most wicked burnouts we’ve seen from Europe. The final shots of the tire’s cords hanging off of the rubber carcass is proof positive that the driver went out to “melt ‘em down.”
If you find yourself asking “why?”, then you are obviously one of the people that maintain the standards of contemporary society and are very social but have no fun in your life. If you watch the video and are asking yourself “why not?”, then you are a “hooner” and we want to see your video next.
