Teaching a Legend to Drift

February 14th, 2013 by

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but does the same thing hold true for racing legends?  Let us here at McCluskey Automotive, your home for Cincinnati Ohio Used Cars, show you what happens when you put a driving hero into an new situation.

Have you ever heard of Bob Bondurant? He’s a 79-year-old racing lefend and in his long and illustrious career, the one thing he never bothered to learn was drifting (he must not have seen Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift). In the interest of learning all things driving, and entertaining his fans, he decided to slide behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Sonic LTZ hatchback and do a little drifting. How do you drift in a front-wheel car like the Sonic? The same way the kids do it in the high school parking lot, with a little bit of lunch tray love. We here at Used Cars in Cincinnati Ohio might just have to give it a try ourselves!

If you’re a racing fanatic and want a piece of Bondurant memorabilia, you may be interested to know that trays are being sold in an eBay auction! We know you’ll be interested after you check out the video below!
