Not everyone gives a name to their vehicles, but those of us that love our cars and trucks usually do. People that build their vehicles for show are even more likely to give them catchy names. Take the van in this video as an example. Sewersides is its name. This is an LS-swapped van that participates around Australia in burnout competitions. Imagine what looks like a mid-90’s Toyota van with a fire-breathing LS engine inside.
Where Did They Come Up With The Name Sewersides?
We’ve got to admit, Sewersides is a strange name for a vehicle. It’s strange until you take into consideration who owns it. You see, this LS-swapped van isn’t owned by a single person, but a company, Altona Plumbing and Civil (Engineering/Contracting) of Canning Vale, WA, Australia. One of their specialties is sewer work, so Sewersides isn’t strange at all.
This LS-Swapped Van Wins Competitions Around The Country
It’s not particularly hard to get a van to break the rear-end loose and do a burnout. Where it gets difficult is to keep that burnout going, like in the attached video. Collin, the driver, keeps the burnout going for what looks like the length of a drag strip. There are videos on the van’s Facebook page of driver Collin Bryne doing a multi-colored burnout lasting a full five minutes at a recent competition. Of course, he took first place.
Stay tuned to this channel. We’re sure that we’ll be seeing more of Collin and Sewersides in the future.
