Just after noon this past Saturday, August 16th a video of a Camaro driver doing donuts on the Golden Gate Bridge has emerged
History was made as this is the first time in memory that anyone’s ever shut down traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge for such a stunt. The Camaro driver doing donuts seems to give not a care, if not for simply raising his fame factor amongst the car enthusiast community.
It is possible that in the 77-year history of the Golden Gate Bridge this has been attempted before, but in this day where video cameras are everywhere, this Camaro’s spinning donuts have gone viral.
The Camaro thankfully kept its composure and avoided plowing into the crowd of onlooking tourists standing nearby. Surprisingly, the bridge’s video surveillance failed to capture the stunt, and the CHP were unable to catch up with the driver. They stopped a black Corvette, not a Camaro
