Dirt-Track Challenger Rescue and Thrash! - Roadkill Ep. 54

For this episode of Roadkill powered by Dodge, David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan wrote a Facebook post seeking the coolest car they could buy from a fan for a rescue and adventure. The winner was a 1970 Dodge Challenger that had been set up as a dirt-track race car in the ’90s but was then ignored for a decade-plus. The guys made a trek north to Oregon to hang out at a Mopar-and-llama farm to revitalize this long-lost race car, which turned out to be in surprisingly good shape once they looked past all the welded body panels and the rollcage made of water pipe. But, of course, junk is never quite as flawless as it seems when Roadkill gets involved, so the road trip turns into the normal breakdown-fest before the glorious and violent dirt-track thrashing could begin. Roadkill is supported by Optima, Cooper Tires, Pioneer, Lincoln Tech, CRC Industries, and Jegs!

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?

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!

Stubby Bob Lives! Huge Wheelstands! - Roadkill Ep. 72

One of the most epic Roadkills of all time is Episode 52, where we took a 1950 Ford dump truck, put a blown big-block Chevy and a Gearstar 4L80E trans behind the cab, powered it through a V-drive, and did a monster wheelstand that nearly killed Mike Finnegan. But does that stop him from trying again? No! On this episode of Roadkill powered by Dodge, Finnegan teams up with guest host Tony Angelo to revamp the truck we call Stubby Bob. With a new front axle and some added safety equipment, the guys hit the highway (yes, on the road with open zoomie headers!) to drive to the nostalgia drags at Eagle Field to try for wheelie distance. But then the Roadkill curse punches them in the face multiple times until they finally emerge victorious and lay down some scenes that will forever secure Stubby Bob as the most heroic dump truck of all time.

The Mini-Truck and Road Runner Episode! - Roadkill Ep. 58

On this episode of Roadkill powered by Dodge, both David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan get their dream car!

One thing's for sure, the Datsun delivers a lot more suffering, and no one can believe it's more reliable than the Road Runner.

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.
