How do they get the tires to squeal on a dirt road?

How do they fire 20 rounds out of an old S&W revolver?

How they upshift a 4 speed 8 times?


If the results don't match the theory, change the theory.

Ironically, the starter in my Road Runner - looks OEM, date coded, installed by PO - DOESN'T have the characteristic sound we would expect.

I'm actually gonna swap in a mint one from my stash and try to get that sound back laugh2

To me, it's part of the experience, you know ?

I feel dirty. I swapped a mini starter to get rid of the sound. Do I turn in my Mopar card??

Absolutely! I cherish the sound.

Sometimes you just have to. Need room for headers, and the heat will kill them. I had to on a couple old Mopars I had. I hated to do it. I still have the original on my Power Wagon and enjoy every turn of it.

What I want to know is how do they drive 60 mph with the column shifter in Park?

I remember my Dad referring to the sound of the starter as the "Highland Park Hummingbird"

That one annoys me a lot more than it should. You're freaking strapped down to a camera platform, how dangerous is it to move the stupid lever?

Still happens today, too. In Baby Driver, the Avalanche driven in the early chase scene is in Park the entire time. So annoying.


Earning every penny of that moderator paycheck.

On the real old shows or movies I figure it's three-on-the-tree and it's in third, but newer stuff, yep, looks ridiculous!

Also, how come most have no rear view mirror???? We notice that stuff!

I've seen movies where the in car camera shows the driver shifting a four speed, the camera angle through the windshield shows the car in park at 60mph.

Street tires with narrow sipes will squeal on hard packed dirt. If the dirt is loose or if the tread is blocky with no sipes, you'll have a real hard time getting a squeal.

Very true. I have had tires squeal on packed dirt.

All that^^ and why can't they design a camera platform with wheel wells to put the vehicles' tires in or put on smaller or no wheels to lower it to a height that looks like actual or normal height of the vehicles passing it or they are passing. They all look like the are in a jacked up 4x4 truck even if they are in a convertible sports car. And the steering wheel movement as they are driving and shifting......don't get me started drive laugh2

How about even modern movies showing a car being "Hotwired." The person jerks down a bundle of wires from under a 2018 car.....touches two wires that have their ends stripped to one another....sparks fly car cranks then is running. Job done!


Keep old mopars alive.

I worked at a nationwide auto parts store from 82-84. Our truck brought us 50 mopar starters every week, part number 3257. We got maybe 10 gms.

I've been binge watching The Blacklist and pretty much every vehicle where you can see the shifter while they're driving it's in park.
