Muscle Truck vs. Baja Bug! 1974 Chevy C10 Battles Fred's Volkswagen Baja Bug - Roadkill Ep. 28
Remember the drag racing '74 Chevy Muscle Truck from Roadkill Episode 18?
It's back, but with a twist: it's gonna become a true dual-sport ride for
surf and turf, shedding its drag slicks for Super Swamper Boggers and
hitting the sand dunes...hard! And to prove that a lowered, two-wheel-drive
pickup can dominate the dunes, Freiburger and Finnegan set up a shootout
with Fred Williams from the Dirt Every Day series on the Motor Trend
channel. Fred brought out his '69 VW Baja Bug from DED Episode 23 and went
head to head with the Muscle Truck on the beach at Pismo, California.
The Roadkill/HOT ROD Magazine Muscle Truck is a '74 Chevy C10 shortbed,
stepside, with a GM LS6 crate engine (like the all-aluminum V8 found in a
C6 ZO6 Corvette). It's stock other than a small crane cam, midlength
headers, and a new addition for this episode: MSD's Atomic EFI (the truck
used to run a carburetor). The Atomic setup is atop a BBK intake manifold,
and uses a stock LS1 throttle body. That legendary Exhaust sound comes
from 3-inch pipe with 4-inch Dynomax Bullet race mufflers.
The truck's transmission is a JW turbo
400 backed by a Gear Vendors over/underdrive unit. And it really needs
overdrive because the Ford 9-inch rear carries 5.13 gears and a spool. The
suspension features dropped spindles and Ridetech Strong Arms and air bags
up front. In the rear, two leaves were removed from the stock spring packs,
they were flipped under the axle, and traction is delivered by Caltrac's
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

'94 Chevy K1500 Transmission problem
So as you can see, my transmission is acting funny. It functions just fine,
but it wont go past 70. Any advice would be great. I've never heard of this
happening before. I think it's probably something with the computer or a
sensor on the transmission.

This amazing Hummer Extreme Off Road Video shows the true capabilities and
history of the Hummer. Rock Climbing, Mudding, Water Crossing and "Hummer
Snow Challenge" and much more.
Born from a military background, it's not surprising to discover that
go-anywhere attitude backing up the Hummer brand. This mindset was best
exemplified by the late Hummer H1
Realizing that not everyone would want the civilian equivalent of a Humvee,
the company added the Hummer H2, available as an SUV and as a pickup dubbed
the H2 SUT (sport utility truck). Still plenty capable, the H2 shares its
platform with the Chevrolet Silverado, whereas the most recent product to
debut, the Hummer H3 and H3T (the pickup truck version), is based on the
Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon.
Hummer was created as a civilian version of the Humvee (HMMWV, High
Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle), a military vehicle developed by AM
General during the 1980s. The first model, simply called the Hummer, was
launched by AM General in 1992, seven years before General Motors took
ownership of the company. After that change, the Hummer was renamed the
Hummer H1 and GM worked on expanding the brand's line up and broadening
exposure to the mainstream market.
The results of those efforts could be seen in the Hummer H2, a rugged
off-road SUV that offered attitude and sheer mass not found in many
competing vehicles. A pickup version of that utility vehicle, dubbed the
Hummer H2 SUT, followed. By 2006, the Hummer H1 had reached the end of its
line, but the resulting void made room for the Chevy Colorado-based Hummer
H3, available with a five-cylinder engine in standard guise or as the
V8-powered Hummer H3 Alpha. A pickup version, the Hummer H3T, is also
available, as is the more luxurious Hummer H3x.
