F-250 Destroys Retired Miata in Most Awesome Way Possible

By -

Playing in the dirt never looked this fun.

Large pickup trucks like the ninth-gen Ford F-250, seen in the video below, are great for completing large and small tasks, but everyone knows that. What you may not know, though, is just how good the F-250 is at helping others have fun. Like the time a group of truck enthusiasts decided to tow a Mazda MX-5 Miata through a dirt field, with two daredevil friends seated inside. Why? Who knows? Who cares? It’s totally badass, and that’s all that really matters!

The video doesn’t provide any insight on why the Miata is being dragged through the field. However, the sports car looks like it was approaching the end of its life. And if the car’s not running, this is one helluva fun way to send it into the auto after-life.

Speaking of having fun, the F-250’s 7.3-liter Power Stroke V8 engine makes the task of pulling the first-gen Miata seem like dog-sledding, but with cars. The diesel engine makes quick work of taking the sports car and its passengers on a ride that they won’t forget. The enormous engine digs through the dirt with ease. At one point, it even covers the trailing sports car in a thick layer of muck by doing a dirty burnout.

Giving a cheap, dilapidated sports car one last ride is the best way of giving it a proper goodbye. And the F-250’s 505 lb-ft. of torque is a great vessel to send the sports onto its next journey.
