In the community of gearhead, when a colleague falls, we like to remember him or her on the only way we know how, with a set of smoky burnouts.
Family and friends went to say goodbye to a local owner of a garage with a funeral procession marked by squealing tires and rumbling engines in his honor, almost all of his friends from all over the country was there with their hot rods and muscle cars to give the last of honor, performing burnouts. I am quite sure that none of them could forget Smitty.
Jeffrey “Smitty” Smith, 49, of HAWK POINT, died of a gunshot wound to the head. He was found outside his tent, on 3 July.
Mourners stood in front of his business where he was killed on the way to the cemetery in honor of Smith to do some burnouts. That really made me cries out laud!
Perhaps this is the best way to say goodbye to someone who is very close to you, and you know he would have liked.
