      We was dumb but we had fun.
      I wanted to have a little "project" like this one over this past summer but me and my buddies didn't want to hassle with insurance and registration. We didn't think of using your tactics

      boooooooooooooooooo...... should have took that thing to the track and ran it against whatever and put that on video. all the blow up stuff has been done 1 million times over. this car could have been epic to unknowing scenesters or wanna be drag racers.

      yup... just watched the video and... well...

      OT but... My buddy did the same thing in his 96 stratus! But it wasn't intentional. Christmas eve a few years back, we decide to slide and screw around in a mall parking lot. First people there, so no tracks, just perfect untouched snow. Well he guns it across the lot, all i remember is a loud smashing sound, a violent lurch, the feeling of a good three foot free fall, another impact, followed closely by my head smashing the dash. Easily one of the most confusing moments of my life. Turns out since the snow was untouched the two lots appeared to be even. You couldn't even see the curb or the drop until you were standing at it. Car was effed up bad, fluids everywhere, and needed a tow.

      I love that all of you seem to think thermite is an explosive. The kind people typically refer to simply burns incredibly hot and produces molten iron.

      Aluminium and iron oxide powders, mix it...light it with a magnesium strip....We did it in my highschool chemistry class. It's all readily available from laboratory suppliers.

      That said...just because it's not an explosion doesn't mean it's not awesome.

      way back in the day they used to use thermite to weld railroad tracks together..

      Regardless, anything that burns with half the heat of a nuclear explosion is some fun stuff..

      Due to the practicalities of blowing up a car without getting arrested, things have been plodding along slowly with the execution of the plan. But the car has just been towed 800km to our capital city, and is another step closer to being exploded.

      It looks a little secondhand after the dirt driving, but the bumper is inside the car.

      This seems like a whole lotta time, effort, and money to accomplish nothing.
