First, they were on The Lodge With It. Now, they’re on I94 with it. What is it? Who are they? Hooligans with cars, of course. Elsewhere, a more cautious snow belt society would have garaged their muscle cars like the Chevrolet Camaro for the season, allowing for more utilitarian winter beaters to provide their personal mode of transportation during the cold and icy months.
Not in Detroit, baby.
The video is pretty low-resolution, but we can make out a red fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro doing donuts around a group of people in the middle of I94 as traffic accumulated like snowflakes on a Christmas morning. The sound of the calamity carried for over a mile.
This event follows up to a similar incident that happened in Detroit back in July, where a group of Dodge Charger drivers blocked off The Lodge freeway so that the could do burnouts and donuts while the cell phone cameras were rolling. The incident led to multiple arrests, at least one T-shirt line, and at least one rap song.
Another Detroit freeway incident happened last week, when a truck carrying a pair of brand new 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500s crashed at the interchange of I75 and Gratiot Avenue.
We shouldn’t have to say it, but we’re going to say it: MC&T cannot condone these muscle car flash mobs on public roads. Not that it matters what we think to the participants in the video, but stuff like this gives every automotive enthusiast a bad name.
We’ll follow up on this story as it develops.
