Racer Boy: Demolition Derby

By Rob Krider

Racerboy

So you want to get into motorsports, but the only thing in your driveway is grandma’s 1976 Buick stationwagon. You’re in luck. Knock the windows out of that bitch (the stationwagon, not your grandma) and head to the demolition derby.

Not only will you get the opportunity to cut off the exhaust system and enjoy the kick ass melody of an uncapped V-8, but you’ll get the chance for motorsports victory in front of a fairground stadium filled with drunk, derby fans. That’s right, you’ll be vying for glory in front of a paying and cheering crowd, try to find that at an autocross.

Demolition Derby is something YOU can do (and by destroying the car you’ll be saving the environment by ridding the world of another gas guzzling monster). To learn where, cost, car preparation, adrenaline factor and how to actually win a Demo Derby read the rest at Speed Sport Life.

I prefer the compact class. The destruction of the cars pictured above is just immoral.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. To all southerners looking to scrap their old “clunkers”, you can get a couple grand if you advertise them for sale in Quebec (or on lespac.com). seriously. A car is only worth scraping when the frame is rusted through. Also I say Quebec because we just need a mechanical inspection to get cars on the road from out of the province. and we only need to do it once!

so don’t destroy your classics… sell them to us french men. You will get more money out us than an amateur derby, and you’ll help keep the classic car shows going. (i don’t see too many cars above 95′ that might become desirable classics)

WHOA… I felt the ground beneath my feet shift violently. Did you post this while Einaudi was having a few too many, watching football or was passed out from turkey consumption?
