DolleHengst : You teach 'em grandpa!

Arthur Ribeiro : What is the max RPM it can reach when runaway?

Peter Schmidt : Oh yeah .. - Holy shit ! Like it got angry like hell being interrupted from its 30yrs of sleep and rest. Wonder if the guys have lung cancer by now ? Good score video..

logan scott : I love how the old man is completely calm, while everyone else runs away. Hell he even sat in the truck a while!

Nicks Corvette Stop : They don't build them like they use to, 30+ years since it's been cranked. 10k RPM blowing flames out of the exhaust like nothing lol.

slowdaze : Just a heads up, but this guy has copied your video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6tLD2jAO1g

MSZSNeoBahamut19 : The difference between young, wannabe country boys and weathered old men.

Craig Murley : Yup! No substitute for experience!

Creeperboy : why do all runaway detroits sound like vtec?

LEOBear : I like how grandpa just like "well I had a good life" *covers the intake with his eyes closed and 'silent night' playing softly in his head*

jtoddjb : the panic kid tried to do the right thing for just a second then bailed

minefan 01 : sounds like a beast.

Buick Bubba : That should have blown the mouse nests out.

Captain Qwaz : thats a good way to remove carbon build up

Fireship1 : Older gent walked up to it calm as anything and choked it off. He's probably been working around diesels for years. You can tell this wasn't his first runaway, he knew exactly what to do!

Mister Walker : Sucked it through the intake?? Chicken shit threw it down as he was running for his life lmfao... Makes me laugh everytime I watch it..

voluptuouspanic : I had this happen on my car due to the throttle linkage getting detached or stuck, I don't remember. Not a diesel though, a 66 inline 6 Chevy engine. I just turned it off. But it was pretty scary

sampoteste : I want to install one of those on my pickup truck

Pyro Shep : In the trucks defense, that did sound awesome.
