Vintage Dart Blows Rear Axle in Epic Style
Published May 28, 2015
The owner of the deep red vintage 60’s Dodge Dart knows how to put on a show without going fast. Things do go south for him real fast, though.
In the suburban community of Stony Plain, outside of Edmonton, a dashcam catches it on film. The owner of the 60’s era Dart hasn’t owned the car very long at all and is out for a joyride on what looks to be a gorgeous evening. As he’s out for a boot around town, he makes the decision to show off what his car has got. And then he shows what his car no longer has.
He hammers on the throttle and the car lurches forward quickly. The rear end starts hopping and it’s evident something isn’t right. It takes only a second, from start to finish, before the complete rear axle assembly exits out from under the muscle car. The back end of the Dart slams on the pavement and slides to an abrupt halt.
The occupants of the car that catch it all on camera howl uncontrollably at the poor fellow’s misfortune. You may want to turn down your speaker volume for that.
