Shelby GT350 Serves Up Fresh Hot Donuts for All

By -

Enthusiast gets the craving for donuts in broad daylight in the middle of a parking lot and uses his right foot to satisfy it.

As quick as a V8 Ford Mustang is, a lot of the time you spend behind the wheel is a painful waiting game. If you totally baby it, you might be waiting for a dry, sunny day to back it out of your garage and take it for a drive. When you’re in traffic, you’re counting the milliseconds until you get a gap large enough to shoot through and escape the chain of 9-to-5 sedans and crossovers. Those of you in the suburbs probably wait until you’re far away from HOAs and police to really open your car up. As this video on the Youtube channel That OneGuy shows, the owner of this 2016 Shelby GT350 is tired of playing the waiting game. He decides to cook up a batch of donuts right in the middle of a parking lot.

The lot is largely empty around him, leaving plenty of space for high-throttle hooning. He takes off from his spot so hard his tires leave white marks on the pavement. Those quickly turn into a hollow black rainbow. Almost immediately, the GT350 driver gets sideways. Before he turns one complete circle, the back tires are smoking. He then makes donuts using a simple recipe: a little steering angle and lots of gas. He simultaneously modulates the throttle and murders the rear tires, which slowly turn into a giant ghostly serpent of vapor.

Almost as soon as the action starts, it stops. We guess the driver satisfied his hankering…and wanted to make sure the aroma of his donuts didn’t attract people with badges who would shut down his Voodoo-powered kickass kitchen.

Derek Shiekhi's father raised him on cars. As a boy, Derek accompanied his dad as he bought classics such as post-WWII GM trucks and early Ford Mustang convertibles.

After loving cars for years and getting a bachelor's degree in Business Management, Derek decided to get an associate degree in journalism. His networking put him in contact with the editor of the Austin-American Statesman newspaper, who hired him to write freelance about automotive culture and events in Austin, Texas in 2013. One particular story led to him getting a certificate for learning the foundations of road racing.

While watching TV with his parents one fateful evening, he saw a commercial that changed his life. In it, Jeep touted the Wrangler as the Texas Auto Writers Association's "SUV of Texas." Derek knew he had to join the organization if he was going to advance as an automotive writer. He joined the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) in 2014 and was fortunate to meet several nice people who connected him to the representatives of several automakers and the people who could give him access to press vehicles (the first one he ever got the keys to was a Lexus LX 570). He's now a regular at TAWA's two main events: the Texas Auto Roundup in the spring and the Texas Truck Rodeo in the fall.

Over the past several years, Derek has learned how to drive off-road in various four-wheel-drive SUVs (he even camped out for two nights in a Land Rover), and driven around various tracks in hot hatches, muscle cars, and exotics. Several of his pieces, including his article about the 2015 Ford F-150 being crowned TAWA's 2014 "Truck of Texas" and his review of the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, have won awards in TAWA's annual Excellence in Craft Competition. Last year, his JK Forum profile of Wagonmaster, a business that restores Jeep Wagoneers, won prizes in TAWA’s signature writing contest and its pickup- and SUV-focused Texas Truck Invitational.

In addition to writing for a variety of Internet Brands sites, including JK Forum, H-D Forums, The Mustang Source, Mustang Forums, LS1Tech, HondaTech, Jaguar Forums, YotaTech, and Ford Truck Enthusiasts. Derek also started There Will Be Cars on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.
