"Fly, my pretty, fly!" – Click above to watch video after the jump

The video posted after the jump shows some good ol' boys, never meaning no harm. They've been causing trouble at Michigan's Silver Lake dunes since the day they were born. And whoever's behind the wheel did cause some harm, however, because this particular Chevrolet Silverado is going to need Cooter's tow truck to get home.

We give the driver major hoon points for the amount of air achieved, though we have to knock off a few points for the amount of destruction caused (and the lack of a Dixieland car horn). Honestly, we're impressed that the right-front suspension and wheel are still attached to this pickup, since it seems to take the brunt of the forces upon landing. Click past the jump to see a Silverado catch some serious air.

        That's most likely what happened. In 2002 I bought a 1984 Buick Park Avenue with less than 20,000 km on the clock. It was in perfect shape, and being a paint/body guy I gave it a new paint job (Chrysler's Inferno Red) You can see here on CarDomain -- http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2285332/1984-buick-park-avenue Anyway, this kid that had dad's 2002 Trans AM 35th Collectors Edition and got in in his head that my Park Avenue, while very nice, had some hidden hot-rod agenda underneath. He decides he wants to race me. Well after all sorts of noise and ''tire smoke'' -- I pull away like a normal person and notice he isn't going anywhere. About an hour later I'm on my way back and I see him on the side of the road. I ask what happened, and all he can say under his blubbering is ''My dad is going to kill me" -- I suspect it was a transmission failure of some sort. Anyway, leave it to the idiots to destroy new/nice things.

      i heard from some people that were at those sand dunes that the guys was going through a divorce and the truck was gonna get reposed. Heard he had been up there all weekend trashing the truck this was his second jump!
