Man, that was like a ballet! Incredible. Makes Joey Chittwood and his crew seem like monkeys.

That's super. I think 168 (as in their url,) is supposed to signify good luck in an Asian dialect but theswe guys sure didn't need it, they were real skilled.

Thanks a lot for letting us see the show!

It was cool but the middle section of the clip which featured syncronized driving is pretty much a daily occurrence (well, almost) on I95 between Baltimore and Washington only it's called 'Road Rage'.

As for Mr. Chitwood...1956 2 ton shoebox Chevys, pushrod V 8's, no discernable seat belts, recirculating ball steering, solid rear axles, leaf springs, bias ply tires and body on frame construction...all performed on a rutted DIRT track within mere feet of a grandstand full of spectators. See for yourselves.

YouTube - Chevrolet 1956, in radical maneuvers!!!

I wonder how many miles they get on a set of tires, and how much their bodyshop bills are??

Don't believe everything you think
