Junkyard Rescue! Saving a 1950 GMC Truck - Roadkill Ep. 31
One of the most incredible junkyards in the history of junk is Turner's
Auto Wrecking in Fresno, California—and on this episode of Roadkill,
Freiburger and Finnegan hit those 100 acres of vintage sheetmetal and go
spelunking for gold! After considerable debate, the guys select a 1950 GMC
shortbed truck that had been off the road for 26 years and jam to get it
running and driving for the trip home to Los Angeles. At least there was a
50-percent victory. Watch as the guys revamp the Jimmy inline six, panic
over a wrecked master cylinder, sweat their cajones off for four days, and
explore one of the greatest old-car stashes ever!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
