    I remember sometime last year seeing a disgusting video of a Lightning doing a tire popping burnout on a gravel road, somewhere in Mexico. Truck may have been stolen.
    Anyone know which one I a referring to?

    Although I did run across another the other day that was just as bad ! I think he was towing a ATV doing burnouts .... I'll try to find it.

    The second video wasn't anything that most of us didn't/wouldn't do to send our OEM Goodyears off to that tire pile inthe sky. They did a good job of not running it into the guard rail IMO.

    The first video just showes how ignorant some people are.

    I can't believe the last minute of that video...

    Not only was there a guy in the middle of the donut being made by the truck, but the passenger, and then the effing driver, opened the door and stood while the truck was doing donuts.

    I don't think anybody here is that stupid.

    That first vid has to be a stolen truck.. I dont see how anyone to would do that to something they spent ANY money on.

    this is even worse.. TOWING AN EXCURSION!!!

    Ironically, this is the only video that does not have spanish in it, but rednecks instead. Same thing

    I smile when I see videos like these, with these kind of owners/drivers I know my truck became a little more rare

    Dam lots of good ones haha

    I saw one like 2 days ago on youtube of a guy towing a little trailer with a atv on it. Spinning them in the gravel / dirt.

    Anyone else seen it ?

    It seems like everywhere I see Lightnings being totalled and\or blown up on a weekly basis.
    Lightnings could possibly become the AC Cobra of the new millenium.
    About 90% of AC Cobras built in the 60's have been totally demolished on the street and on race tracks all around the country.
    The last few remaining original Cobra survivors are worth millions now. (sticker price was around $6k in 65')

    I don't know about a Lightning ever being in that class but I hear what you are saying.
    IMO these trucks (TOTALLY STOCK/MINT CONDITION) may be worth the original sticker price down the road, but I think it is highly unlikely anything more than that. I know more than a few guys around here who have stunning collectible cars and they would only be worth 30-40k. Again, I hope they hold some value, but if they do any better than that, I'd be shocked.

    I take my truck (which is mint) out to local meets/areas where exotics run wild, no1 even takes a second glance at my truck....to most it's just a north american truck.
