A 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle is the dream of many vintage car enthusiasts.
But one over-excited motorist ploughed his pristine vehicle into a brick wall in front of dozens of onlookers on Sunday – destroying the right headlight and bumper and stripping off a layer of paint.
The drama unfolded at the 12th annual Classic Car and Bike Show in Doncaster this weekend, where thousands of fans gathered to see an exhibition of around 800 classic motors.

But as he was lining up to leave the grounds, the driver of the burgundy Chevy decided to rev up his engine, perhaps hoping to impress the people lining the streets as they exited the rally.
The car flew like a rocket along the residential street before crashing straight into the brick wall, leaving an enormous dent in the side.
Fortunately, there were no reported injuries, except for the wall and the driver’s bank balance.
The 1970 Chevelle remains one of the most iconic vehicles from the muscle car era and the price tag of a fully restored hardtop is likely to be upwards of £50,000.
ViralHog, who uploaded one angle of the footage to YouTube, said they were attending the local rally, which is held every year at the Doncaster School for the Deaf.
The car, likely to be worth upwards of $50,000, was badly damaged, with the left headlight and bumper taking the greatest impact

‘I always like to be there at the end of car shows as you get see the vehicles in motion and hear their beautiful sounds,’ the video caption says.
‘Unfortunately on this day one of the attendees to the show decided before he left he would give the crowd what they’d all gone to see he took his car into the middle of the field and revved his engine quite a few times to draw a crowd which I also filmed.
‘After this when exiting the school grounds he was goaded into giving it some beans, unfortunately, this is when he did a burnout and lost control crashing into a wall.
‘Luckily, nobody was injured however the driver was pretty shaken up, and the car wasn’t in a great state.’
