Chevrolet Tahoe SS at the Fast Five movie premiere - Click above to watch video after the jump

Books are made for reading, boots are made for walking and tires are meticulously engineered for burnouts. As you may or may not be aware, the latest chapter in the Fast and the Furious saga was released this weekend to the rejoicing of testosterone-soaked teenage crowds everywhere. Nowhere was Fast Five more celebrated than in Detroit, as after the final credits rolled, the movie-going masses retired to the parking lot for an impromptu burnout competition.

If you listen very, very closely, you can hear the cries of a million environmentalists.

Nearly everyone got in on the fun, from full-size diesel pickups to front-wheel-drive Chevrolet Malibu models and beater Nissan 240SX projects. Some of the more impressive smoke came courtesy of a Mitsubishi Evolution that retired to a far flung corner of the cinema parking lot to wring out some all-wheel-drive pirouettes. The fun seems to have lasted a good long time before the local PD showed up to put a stop to the party. Miraculously, very little sheetmetal was wrinkled in the smoke.

Hit the jump to see all of the shaky-hand-cam action for yourself, though be warned, some foul language may lurk between tire shrieks.

      This is why i saw the movie at 4:30. Not sure my ears could take the terrible sound of those exhaust systems. Kinda ironic, bunch of moron ricers show up to see a movie based around domestic cars. Classic.

      One of the worst videos in modern western civilization. It can't be this slow of a news day...

      Oh noes, not the xceeders again! These guys give auto enthusiasts a bad name. I thought the "pham" was supposed to be good. I guess not.

        Hence the reason they're not invited to many events anymore. Michigan Subaru Owners Group doesn't look to highly on them, for this particular reason.
