Gender Reveal Burnout in Australia

The couple from Meningie, which is around 100 miles south of Adelaide (which is about eight hours north of Melbourne), thought it would be a good idea to slap some special tires on their Ford Falcon to illustrate the upcoming child’s gender. While this seems like a fairly standard way to handle a gender reveal, the car’s tires burst into flame during the burnout........
