Can God make a muscle car so awesome he can't drive it?
Someone's axle was made of cream cheese. Soft delicious cream cheese.
If you hear grinding noises at the back of your RWD car, the solution is to put on a louder exhaust and floor it.
OK I'm not a gearhead, so can someone please explain to me how the hell does something as ridiculous as that even happen? Seeing as it's likely a custom build, possibly joints/welds incompatible with the engine forces he conjured into his hell-car of doom..or is it just dumbassery mechanics?
Just a guess but the person probably modded their rear suspension and, in the process, made some mighty mistakes. Or a professional did it and fucked up pretty bad.
It looks like the forward U-Joint failed on the drive shaft, or the font of the shaft near the transmission wasn't bolted together rightly enough. On an old drive shaft like that, you usually have one end going from the transmission, to a U-joint to the middle of the shaft, to another U-Joint to the end that's inserted into the rear end differential. So if the joint at the rear end side fails, and the drive shaft hits the road, not a big deal, the shaft drags on the road, lots of sparks and your car slows to a stop. If the front one fails and the shaft drops onto the road while you're moving the shaft will basically pole-vault your rear end out of the back of your car. That's what it LOOKS like happened anyway.

You've busted the transaxle, you're just grinding metal. ease down. ease down.
