Is this a Mustang dressed up as a Challenger, or a Challenger borrowed by a Mustang driver?

Street racing would require a secondary vehicle. This was just an asshole driving like a dick which are traffic infractions not even on the same level as the crimes you mentioned. This was a coffee and cars meeting which is not illegal by the way. So no the spectators are not committing a crime. Just a driver making a poor choice.

Your youth incident is an illegal stop and it’s not illegal to have tires in a truck. That stuff would not fly now days especially with all the cameras.
The whole spectators being arrested was a comment on the street racing thats been happening here in Atlanta. I agree, people leaving an event and happening to witness a fool wrecking would not have been doing anything illegal.

Lots and lots of things were different in the late 60s and early 70s.... Including youth attitudes towards the police. Back then my teen age self never would have even thought questioning them would even be an option.

This ^^^. All of it.

Learn to walk before you try to run . . . Get your corrections to be near-instinctive and accurate - and understand that you want to be staying ahead of the snap-spin the other way once you 'catch' the first spin direction.

There's been a couple of times at wet track days where a similar path to performance car driving absolutely paid off. And I think a few times on the street, to be completely honest here.

that’s addorable.. you southern boys and your driving courses to learn how not to wreck when you lose control. We learn that by the time we 16 and a half up here in the deep freeze.

I live right by where this happened. Par for the course on a normal weekend morning..... Look up Copar Denver, you have your pick of crashed Mopars to choose from. I was on the site last week and there were two crunched S550s, one Camaro, and three Hellcats, several R/Ts, and several V6 Challengers. It's been like this around here for years. A Hellcat lost it and almost took out a crowd at the last cars and coffee I was at in Parker, CO. When the Mustang meme started I was a bit confused because around here that's not the car I was seeing biffing it on a weekly basis...
Here you go, I edited this one for you.

I think people just panic when they start going sideways and keep the pedal mashed. It looks like after the initial hit the car slows down then accelerates harder which is what lifts the trucks up. I’ve never been in a situation where letting go off the gas didn’t help get the car straight again. Not just the mustang but big tall work vans and pickup trucks both without traction control in the rain. Just let go of the gas and steer just enough to keep in your lane and stay straight.

Just so you know, I grew up in MA and didn't leave there until I was 22. That probably means we went through the same self-taught "driving course".

Never did develop a taste for driving in the mud.

I agree. I've done some stupid shit and not once, not even remotely close to losing control. And believe me I had that ass hanging way out there on several occasions.
I would like to say I'm perfect but I hit a patch of liquid on the strip when my car shifted into 3rd and I was suddenly looking at the wall... Granted, I had at least 600whp and was on the summer MP4's... That learnt me to not use summer tires anymore :)
