Each week we sift through all the automotive content we uncover on Revvolution.com, our social channels, and through direct submissions to determine the week’s Top Automotive Photography Candidates. We then present this selection to our audience through our social channels for your vote. Every Monday we tally the votes and add the winning selections to the Weekly Top 10 Social Automotive Photography article.
We figured that not everyone knows what an Airstrip Attack is (shame on you) or really understands what they’re about. Enter the official AA5 video. Presented by Jeffrey J.

The high horsepower, smoky burnouts, high profile builds, grudge matches and absurd trap speeds are all present.
We first laid eyes on this build, a 1971 Penske-Donohue Sunoco Javelin replica, while it sat at Hanksville Hot Rods waiting for the exhaust system to be completed.

Shot at Burnout Mania 2 in Sydney, this clip highlights several insane aspects of this rolling sanitarium; an interesting and no-doubt effective "touch" is the huge "Touch It Slut" windshield banner. But sticking a turbocharged rotary engine into a Suzuki van and then mounting the massive front mount intercooler on the nose clearly takes the win.
