1995 F-150 Does a Final Burnout with Ford Power: Tire Smokin’ Tuesday

By -

Two-tone flareside F-150 is now powered by a turbo LS, but the owner said goodbye to the 5.0 with a nice smoke show.

This week’s Tire Smokin’ Tuesday video comes to us from the STL Street Beasts YouTube channel and it features a 1995 Ford F-150 doing a quick-yet-potent burnout. When the video was shot, it was one final burnout before the truck was ripped apart for a big power project and while the clip is short, it is a fitting goodbye to the 5.0-liter Ford V8.

The Machine

The details on this 1995 Ford F-150 are short, but we can see that it has a slick 90s-era two-tone paint scheme that fades from white to light purple from top to bottom. It also has the flareside design that has become a thing of the past and it has aftermarket wheels, but we don’t know of any other upgrades at the time of this burnout.

We do know that this F-150 is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 and based on the sound, we would guess that it is stock and mated to an automatic transmission. However, the stock or near-stock 5.0 has no problem putting a serious smoking to the rear rubber.

As for its current state, a newer video on the channel shows this F-150 with a turbocharged LS V8 under the hood. We don’t know when it will be up and running, but this half-ton Ford is about to be a whole lot stronger, albeit with GM power.

The Final Burnout

The video begins with this 1995 F-150 idling in an empty parking lot and after a few seconds of waiting, the driver rolls into the throttle and the burnout begins. It doesn’t take long for the rubber to get slick, at which point smoke pours from every direction around the tires and in less than 10 seconds, the entire rear end is cloaked in smoke.

Once the smoke is building up around the back end, the driver lets the truck roll forward a few feet before lifting and ending the fun. The burnout only lasts about 10 seconds, but it is a pretty fantastic 10-second burnout, so crank up your speakers and enjoy!

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
