Classic YouTube: The Drifting Camaro, In All Of It’s Glory


Classic YouTube: The Drifting Camaro, In All Of It’s Glory

This footage is the ultimate bad influence. It’s the benchmark for stupid driving fun. It’s a goal that needs to be attained. Peter Gray’s work behind the wheel of the “USA 502” Camaro somehow blends a drift attack with an Australian burnout and comes off better than either of those events on their own. The speed this black machine carries during the drift would be right at home in a tandem set, but the tail-whipping donuts and fog-bank clouds wouldn’t look out of place on the pad at any “nats” event across the country. This isn’t just standing on the throttle until things start to break…this is mastering car control while dancing on the line between control and “you’re in the dirt, mate!” It’s the perfect recipe: a solid driver, a blown Camaro with plenty of body-twisting grunt, and all the room in the world to play.
