Your mission, (should you choose to accept it), is to find a pic of a W123, preferable china blue, diesel) doing such a magnificent burnout.

The pics are not loading right for me what kind of car is it? Jag XJ220? A W123 could do a monster burn out, if you started spinning the wheels on grass and moved on to pavement at 3k+rpm you could probably do a nice burn out. Also a little bleach on the tires couldn't hurt. A E300D will do an awsome burnout and will slide the rear end very nicely with the traction control off.

you could just get the same effect with diesel smoke from a poorly tuned 123 right? and no need to waste your tires.

i only buy two car magazines; sport compact car and CAR (from england!) bizzarely, i own a 1990 merc 300E 2.6 and a 1976 BMW 2002.

the only thing i dont like about SCC is their penchant for dissing ohv engines and american cars in general. although they do have merit in doing so. paul mumford (RIP) scuppered their ride of the year (sic) competiton in his viper. totally showed em that old school doesnt have to mean no drool. i was rather glad for that.
bmw 2002.
long live the legend

I remember seeing a car mag that did a report on a 6.9 that had a smokey picture like that

5 speed '91 190E 2.6 320,000 mi. (new car, fast, smooth as silk six, couldn't find any more Peugeots)
5 speed '85 Peugeot 505 2.5l Turbo Diesel 266,000 mi. (old car, fast for a diesel, had 2 others)
5 speed '01 Jetta V6 (new wifes car, pretty quick)
5 speed '85 Peugeot 505 2.2l Turbo Gas 197,000 mi. (wifes car, faster, sadly gone just short of 200k )
5 speed '83 Yamaha 750 Maxim 14,000 mi. (fastest)
0 speed 4' x 8' 1800 lb Harbor Freight utility trailer (only as fast as what's pulling it)
