1979 Chevrolet Corvette C3 vs. Dodge Ram 2500 5.9 TDI Drag Race

The drag race recorded in this video is a challenge between old and new, big and small, diesel and gasoline, Dodge and Chevrolet and, more generally, between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and General Motors.
The cars ready to start at the green light are a 1979 Corvette C3 383 with a power of 500 hp and a 1996 Dodge Ram 5.9 TDI ultra tuned.
On the blacktop the engines are singing, the tyres are warm, the crowd is trembling and everything seems perfect when from the front of the Dodge Ram comes out an unusual dark smoke that initially wraps the cockpit and then all the pick-up.
But there is no time to stop the drag race, the countdown has started and the traffic light is on: is the straight six 12 valve engine of the Ram just burning oil or is there something worst that could be very dangerous?
