It’s just a guy thing. Really. We feel like we must flaunt what we have in situations. And, if you’re a gearhead, nowhere is that more true than with your car.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a young kid trying to show off leaving a car show, or have a few more years on the human odometer lighting the tires up, guys want to show their cars off. We’re proud.
Anyway, what can happen if you’re inexperienced is a true butt-clenching moment like this one. Upon leaving the Irvine, California Cars and Coffee event, this Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 driver proceeds to give it a little too much throttle around the curb, presumably trying to usher the rear end out.
Instead, the Camaro Z/28 jerks back and, in a furious attempt to correct the mistake, power-induced fishtailing occurs. Thankfully, the driver gets it under control before something serious occurred.
Boys will be boys, but maybe some proper instruction would be a good thing before showing off.
