Have you ever been to a car event that didn’t like the sound of engine revving or the incredible display of smoke billowing from the rear tires as the driver conducts an epic burnout? One such event dubbed the “most prominent gathering of its kind,” Coffee and Cars, a meetup group based out of Texas that doesn’t like burnouts or engine revving. They dislike it so much that they’ve temporarily banned all Ford Mustangs, Dodge Chargers, and Chevrolet Camaros from attending the event.
Punished For Having Fun: Car Organization Bans Modern Camaro, Charger And Challenger Muscle Cars
According to The Drive, Coffee and Cars took to social media to announce the ban following Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, and Dodge Charger muscle car owners burning some rubber and revving their engines. More than likely, there’s a Karen in their midst. Naturally, the social media posts have received justified backlash as drivers of the vehicles and others have dubbed the decision to be “hateful against domestic car drivers” or just being “soft.”
Of course, a burnout could quickly become a disaster if the person behind the wheel doesn’t know what they’re doing. This is a reaction to a series of incidents at the event due to this activity, not just the most recent event, which took place on November 4th, featuring British sports cars and supercars. Another post also suggests that those who attended the event likely already knew what the ‘bad behavior‘ was but did it anyway. The group also stated that all its events might become invitation-only if people continue reckless driving and actions.
Searching online doesn’t take much to get good examples of how ‘reckless behavior’ can turn into a disaster. A particular Mustang pulling out of a parking lot only to lose control and crash into pedestrians comes to mind. In fact, too often. Not to mention, Dodge Chargers and Challengers don’t have an excellent reputation either. This is one of many car meets that has had issues with reckless drivers, and it likely won’t be the last; some events even have law enforcement stationed at the exits of the event area to discourage such stunts. Though, revving an engine isn’t necessarily against the law.
