Flame-Spitting Rat Rod Takes Gymkhana to the Next Level

When talking about gymkhana, one usually can’t help but think about Ken Block and his Ford Fiesta ST rallycross car. Well, we want to put a stop to that with this awesome awesome drift performance that was shot during a Gymkhana Grid event at Germany’s Lausitzring.

And don’t you dare think about some German or Japanese car, because all you get is an all-American rad rot built out of a 1929 Ford. But there’s no need to feel disappointed, as this hot rod comes with a flame-spitting V8 engine. Sure, it’s not as spectacular Ken Block’s new Gymkhana Six, but it’s something we’d watch for days if a hot rod drifting contest would be held at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
