Extreme Elco Engine Swap! - Roadkill Episode 4
On this episode of Roadkill, David Freiburger, Mike Finnegan and a carsick
dog drive a '69 El Camino 500 miles from home (on seven cylinders) to
change an engine in the parking lot of Summit Racing.
The story goes that Finnegan's wife's grandfather bought this1969 Chevy El
Camino brand new, and it's been passed down through the family, finally to
her. It's a solid car, and the suspension has been hopped up, but the
all-original 350 engine was smoking like a freight train. That didn't stop
the guys from limping it from Los Angeles, California to Sparks, Nevada,
where Summit Racing has a fully-stocked warehouse.
Summit sells every speed part and replacement part on Earth, including the
420hp, 383ci crate engine, so the logic was that the guys would save time
on the engine swap because they could walk right into the store instead of
driving to a parts store multiple times, as they would have back home.
So how long will it take a couple gearheads to change an engine outside in
a snow flurry? Will the EPA shut them down before they can finish? And what
happens when you let a carsick dog ride shotgun? Watch to find out!

Scary Fast Supra - Uncontrollable - TX2K12
It takes some balls to keep driving this car the way it's all over the
track. I also wouldn't want to be the guy next to him.
This Supra was fast, but it gave you anxiety every time it made a pass.
