In high school in the late 50's I had a friend who's Mom had a cream colored 220S sedan with the vaca-matic clutch. It was activated any time you moved the steering column mounted shifter handle. So, he enjoyed revving the engine up a bit and then letting go of the shifter handle that had been placed in first gear. As you might guess this would chirp the rear tires quite nicely. This would be repeated on up thru the gears, getting the same response in second and third. Not sure it would or could do this in fourth, but it sure was a pretty car and a very smooth running machine.
