  • Description

    WRECKING A SPANKING NEW CAR SOUNDS A DANGEROUS OCCUPATION. AN EXPENSIVE ONE, TOO. BUT IT'S ALL IN AN AFTERNOON'S WORK FOR THE "HELL DRIVERS" OF FLORIDA, IN THE UNITED STATES.

    FOR VISITORS TO THIS MONTH'S STATE FAIR HERE IT'S GREAT ENTERTAINMENT. 63 CARS WERE DRIVEN AS THEY WERE NEVER MEANT TO BE DRIVEN. CARS HURTLED OVER RAMPS, ROARED ALONG ON TO WHEELS, SHOT OVER CARS BENEATH AND CRASHED INTO PARKED VEHICLES.

    IT WAS JUST PART OF THE FUN AT THE FAIR. THE STATE FAIR IS AN INSTITUTION ACROSS THE UNITED STATES. EACH STATE PUTS ON ONE EACH YEAR. COUNTRY FOLK TURN UP WITH THEIR CATTLE, SHEEP, GOATS ETC. TO COMPETE AGAINST OTHER FARMERS. DOGS ARE JUDGED. FOOD SOLD. MACHINERY EXHIBITED. IN FACT, IT'S JUST LIKE ONE BIG FESTIVAL. EVERY YEAR THEY BECOME LARGER AND MORE LAVISH.
