Tires By The Truckload: SMOKNRAT Dusts Off The Rears At The West Coast Nats!


Tires By The Truckload: SMOKNRAT Dusts Off The Rears At The West Coast Nats!

I don’t know what’s worse for this whole flatbed work truck kink that I’ve had going for the last month or so: watching Dylan McCool dig through a warehouse full of 1960s-1990s era Dodge trucks, or looking at the semi-turned-burnout machine known as SMOKNRAT as it performs it’s magic trick of turning rear tires to smoky vaporized rubber at will.¬†Darryl Ferguson’s semi-tractor turned burnout master is one of the coolest arguments for a flatbed truck I’ve seen in a minute: tons of power, plenty of torque, classic good looks, and it has the ability to wipe the earth with many machines who would dare test it out. It’s the kind of vehicle that you’d want to take to the Pomona Swap Meet, just to throw your purchases on the back before you haul tail back to the shop. It’s perfectly obnoxious, from it’s stacks to it’s air horns that I really hope work. This, a gooseneck hitch, and a trailer behind it and I’d be content. I don’t care one bit that a diesel would work better…the sound couldn’t be beat!
