Boss 302 Turns Into Massive Flamethrower in Texas

By -

Welcome to Mustang country, where spitfire tailpipes are the norm and singed facial hair is in style.

Texas. The Lone Star State. Home to thousands of miles of flat roads, an 85 mile-per-hour speed limit, and has one of the strongest automotive cultures in the world. But in 2018, Texas is ruled by trucks. Big, loud, lifted, and mean. And if you aren’t driving a massive pickup, you’d better have something just as good.

And that’s exactly what we have here. In this very short clip, posted by YouTuber by Film Kurdish Doblaj TV, we see a very tough-looking white fifth-generation Boss 302. While we don’t get a shot of the engine or the interior or really much of the car, we get to see it shoot flames out of its tailpipes. As they say in Texas: Hell yeah, brother.

No chill Boss 302

At first, we hear someone off screen tell the crowd to stay back. Of course, that doesn’t happen. One guy squats dangerously close to the right tailpipe, phone out to capture the possibility of singeing his eyebrows off. Once the big V8 in the Boss 302 starts revving and flames shoot out of the car, another kid kicks at them with his sneakers. Could this be yet another one of those alcohol-fueled, Jackass-inspired pranks that everyone and their uncle tries to do for internet fame? The jury is still out on this one, but we’ll just go ahead and just say yes. Also, we’re sure Johnny Knoxville is looking at this with a slight smirk on his face.

Questionable behavior from spectators aside, this is one cool video. Unfortunately, we don’t get any information on the car or its owner here. But if you like S197s, big power, and of course, fire, you won’t want to miss this video. It could be the most rewarding 40 seconds of your day. But please, exercise due caution and don’t try this one at home, kids.
