Skinny Tire Burnout

Foggy Burnout - copyright Jeffery Blackwell 2009

Early one Saturday morning while visiting Doc down in Illinois, I was out driving around in the fog when I came across this scene.

If you went to high school in a small town, like I did, you know what this is picture’s about.

Friday night, car full of kids, a forgiving wall of corn on one side of the road and a never ending field of soybeans on the other… What could happen?

Well, there’s that one big tree.

I have to wonder. Has dad noticed that his rear tires are wearing out so much faster than the fronts?

  1. a very common scene from my roots. Not uncommon to find an empty bleach bottle or two.

  2. Hey, Clay. Better bleach bottles than beer, I guess. Or maybe there were some of both...

    Good to hear from you. When are we going to get together so I can take some shots of your Corvair?
