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.

Farm-Find Rescue! Plymouth Duster Big-Block Swap - Roadkill Ep. 40
On this episode we present a new Roadkill project car: the Crop Duster! It’s a 1970 Plymouth Duster that Freiburger forgot that he owned—a result of multiple trades with a buddy, and at least 5 years of neglect in the dirt of a grape farm. Once he was reminded of the car, and with a 440 Mopar big-block sitting on the shop floor (salvaged from the General Mayhem ’68 Charger), it was evident what needed to happen. Freiburger and Finnegan headed up to the farm run by Steve Dulcich, editor of Engine Masters magazine, to drag the Duster out of its moss-covered indignity and attempted to get the 440 in the car and running, driving, and doing smoky burnouts within five days. Along the way, the trio did engine upgrades, butchered some headers, built a homemade driveshaft, cobbled together a used Exhaust system, did some halfhearted bodywork, and executed other mechanical feats the likes of which you’ve come to expect from Roadkill. Then it was off to the chassis Dyno and the drag strip. Hate to break it to you, but the fail in this episode is minimal!

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!

Junkyard-Rescue 1969 Mustang Mach 1! - Roadkill Ep. 66
An abandoned Mach 1 is a dream find! In this episode of Roadkill powered by Dodge, David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan head to Colorado Auto & Parts in Englewood, Colorado, and visit the Corns family—builders of the crazy radial-Cessna-powered 1939 Plymouth truck you’ve seen all over the Internet and in Roadkill magazine. Colorado Auto is a giant you-pull-it yard with heritage back to 1959—with a good stash of vintage cars that have been there for decades. One of them was a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 that had been melting into the ground since 1980. But 37 years of neglect are not daunting to Roadkill, so the guys figure out how to get it running and driving. First, they’ve got to deal with 37 years of raccoon poop, which is just part of bringing the Disgustang into the Roadkill fleet of project cars.

Street "Legal" Stock Car Body Swap - Roadkill Ep. 46
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.
