Rear-Engine Mini-Truck Madness! Roadkill Ep. 45

This time around, Freiburger and Finnegan travel to Santa Rosa, California, to drive a crazy '74 Mazda REPU mini-truck all the way back to SoCal, where they'll compete in Optima's Search for the Ultimate Street Car Challenge. The Mazda is an oddity, originally powered by a rotary engine but later converted to Olds Toronado front-wheel drive drivetrain sometime in the late-1980s. With a 455ci big-block and '69 Toronado transaxle slid between the rear frame rails, the seller claimed wheelies and 10-second ETs. However, Finnegan and Freiburger quickly discover their $5,000 mini-truck has more style than substance. Can they hang with the big dogs at the races? Special thanks to our official product sponsors, Dickies, Optima Batteries and Eastwood Tools.

1985 C4 Corvette-Kart vs. 2014 Lingenfelter C7! - Roadkill Ep. 35

On this episode of Roadkill, we hack the entire body off a C4 Corvette, cage it, and call it a race car! Freiburger and Finnegan fulfill a dream that began four-plus years ago when they first wrote the "Vette Hack" article for HOT ROD magazine, slicing 900 pounds of ugly fiberglass off of a 1985 Corvette to prove that it would handle better in the autocross. Less weight means more acceleration, better cornering, and better stopping. The idea is proven once again here as the guys add a 350-horsepower rat-rod engine, rebuild the trans, remove more weight, and make it rigid, safe, and stylish with a full rollcage. Next, they head into a shootout with a 2014 Corvette upgraded by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering with an Edelbrock blower, Kooks headers, and Corsa exhaust for a wicked-sounding 640 horsepower. And then, of course, there's the off-road mayhem. The Vette Kart rocks!

Junkyard 'Cuda Rescue, With Nitrous Oxide! - Roadkill Episode 11

On this episode of Roadkill, David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD magazine fly out of town, buy a car from a junkyard, make it run and drive, do burnouts, add nitrous, drag race twice, almost die, and the auction off the car at the end. The scene begins at CTC Auto Ranch in Denton, Texas, where the guys score a '67 Plymouth Barracuda with a 360 V8, but without a carburetor, interior, glass, or brakes. By the time they sort out a number of other mechanical woes, they're off for some burnouts and some racing at North Star Dragway, right next to the Auto Ranch. Then it's a 300-mile drive to Houston for the NMCA Lone Star Nationals race. But, as you've come to expect from these guys, that doesn't exactly go smoothly. But then they add NOS nitrous and it makes everything ok as they hang out with Jeff Lutz and Tim Reed from HOT ROD Drag Week right before they have to sell the car and hit the plane home.

Roadkill 50th Episode Special! 10-Car Showdown! - Roadkill Ep. 50

Roadkill survived 50 episodes! In that time, we’ve built a whole lot of cars, and in this episode we’ve got a shootout of the 10 that are still running and driving (and that have appeared on the show since our similar competition for the 25th episode). Fans asked for this, so we delivered! It’s the very least we can do to thank all of you who have watched our show over the last four years. Big thanks to Dodge for keeping us going, too, and to supporting sponsors CRC, Jegs, Lincoln Tech, Cooper Tires, Pioneer and Optima Batteries! The cars in this episode are the NAScarlo from Episode 46; the Mazdarati from Episode 45; the Raunchero from Episodes 2, 13, 14, 25, and 32; the Crop Duster from Episode 40 and Roadkill Garage Episode 2; Stubby Bob from Episode 44; Harry from Episode 48; the Muscle Truck from Episodes 18, 28, and 38; General Maintenance from Episodes 43 and 47; the Draguar from 7, 41, and 47; and the Vette Kart from 35 and 47. Why no General Mayhem ’68 Charger? It was out on display at an O’Reilly Auto Parts convention. Why no Rotsun? The crank was broken in half. For more behind-the-scenes details on all 50 episodes, make sure to grab issue Number 4 of Roadkill magazine. Thanks to Dodge, Roadkill is still free on YouTube 12 times in 2016!

The Roadkill guys finally did what they've been planning for three-plus years! Long ago they bought a late-model circle track race car and planned to drive it to the Deep South, but the car could not be insured because it had no VIN. Solution? Install a body that has a VIN! That's exactly what you'll see in this episode, as a 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo is transformed into the beast now known as the Nascarlo! It even drives on the street! And races on the dirt track! But suffice it to say it does not all end well. Roadkill is powered by Dodge and supported by Eastwood Company, Dickies, and Optima Batteries.
