The Clemson University Phi Delta Theta brothers are putting their school’s hatred for The University of Alabama to good use by hosting a good, old-fashioned car bashing event to raise money for the Greenville Children’s Hospital.
Location: Wigington Street
The idea is simple: tow a red beater car onto your property, spray paint it with Alabama stuff, then demolish the thing with a sledge hammer. Charge people just $5 to go HAM with endless swings and watch people line up.
Carbash at the Compound! $5 all you can swing. All proceeds go to the Greenville Children's Hospital! Go Tigers! pic.twitter.com/ICAMpZX0yr

When you hear the words “endless swings,” you get the notion that you could single handedly destroy the car. But you’d be wrong. Bashing cars with a sledge hammer is hard work. Obviously the windows are the most satisfying to break, but you’ve got to arrive early in order to get dibs.
As a Phi Delt brother myself, I’m glad to see this kind of behavior. And this kind of behavior:
Last time I was in Clemson, I threw meat balls at a Phi Delt house…with the Phi Delts who lived in it. Weird night. Go Tigers #CLEMvsLOU

It’s safe to say that Clemson hasn’t been this hyped for something in a long, long time. So if you’re in Clemson today, we suggest putting your energy towards something positive and destroying that Alabama car.
