The Saturday afternoon burnout contest has become a crowd favorite. Participants get three minutes to wow the crowd, who pick the winner by the volume of their applause. This ex-cop Crown Vic achieved runner-up status by exploding both its rear skins in the allotted time, almost catching fire in the process. We liked its use of the Saleen banner across its windshield and the “To Protect and Burn Out” script on the fenders. Its owner bought and prepared the sedan specifically for the contest.
