now before a mod closes this thread, let me tell everyone that i’m not looking for tips on how to destroy a toyota or stories about tying cherry bombs to matchbox cars. [/disclaimer]
i just finished watching “gone in 60 seconds” and i’ve got a question about the scene towards the end where that big silent guy blows up one of the antagonist’s car by putting a rag into his gas tank and then lighting it. i’ve seen this done in a few movies now, and i’m wondering if it really works. can this be done or is it just a movie “thing” that keeps the pyrotechnician’s union happy?
