‘Evil’ Ford F-100 in Action at Tread Cemetery: Tire Smokin’ Tuesday

By -

Wicked 1972 pickup puts on a proper Oz burnout performance.

Tread Cemetery is billed as the world championship of team burnouts and at the 2017 event in Australia, this 1972 Ford F-100 was among the competitors. We don’t know if this truck was on the winning team, but it put on one hell of a burnout on the Tread Cemetery tarmac.

EVIL72 F-100

There are no details included on this 1972 Ford F-100 shy of the fact that it is named EVIL72. The truck looks to be in nice shape (that isn’t always the case with these burnout machines) and there is no question that it is powered by a monster V8 engine. It has a set of skinny rear wheels for easier tire-shredding, but based on how this classic F-Series sounds, it would likely put a serious smokin’ to fat tires as well.

This video comes to us from the YouTube channel of Daniel Banks and it features this 1972 Ford F-100 getting crazy at Tread Cemetery 2017. If you are somehow unfamiliar with Aussie burnout competitions, they aren’t like American tire-slaying shows where the vehicle is sitting in the burnout box of a race track. Instead, the competitors are given a big, open area where they can throw the vehicle around and create smoke in any way that they want.

Basically, Australian burnout competitors are trying to create the most smoke and the most noise until the rear tires disintegrate. To do so, they pack incredible engines into vehicles with tiny little tires, creating some of the world’s baddest burnout machines.

This 1972 F-100 offers up a fine example of an Aussie burnout, spinning the truck around and around with smoke pouring from the rear tires for more than a minute. At times, the truck disappears into the smoke, but when the cloud clears, the crowd shows their appreciation for this evil Ford truck’s awesome burnout.
