Release The Draguar! Building a Blown Jaguar Rat Rod - Roadkill Episode 7
On this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan do unspeakable things
to a '74 Jaguar XJ12, one of about 4,700 made. Namely, they cut a giant
hole in the hood and install a Weiand 6-71 Supercharger and twin Holley carburetors on the
350ci Chevy V8 that was already installed in the car when it was purchased
for $1,000. But things can never be easy, so the Supercharger installation is staged in the parking
lot of Gotelli Speed Shop in South San Francisco. Then the duo hits the
road, making their way to Sacramento Raceway, where they can finally
unleash "The Draguar" at the strip.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

GODZILLA GT-R Group A R32 Nissan Skyline GTR - Bathurst 1000 1992
GODZILLA. The 1992 Tooheys Bathurst 1000 Winner and 1992 Australian Touring
Car Championship Winner, The R32 Skyline GT-R.
The WINFIELD Number #1 GT-R piloted by Mark Skaife and Jim Richards was the
winner at Mount Panorama for a 2nd year in a row.
WINFIELD GT-R won the 1992 Australian Touring Car Championship.
Driver Championships were also won by Skaife 1st and Richards in 2nd,
Longhurst was 3rd with the BMW M3 Evolution in the final Drivers
Championship Standings in 1992.
Australian Motorsport was changed forever after this event and proceeded
with an amalgamation of today's V8 SUPERCARS. This also meant the removal
and abolishment of turbo charged engines
in the top tier of Australian Motorsport and only 2 car Manufacturers that
compete for the title.
In this video the car is the GIO Racing GT-R with Mark Gibbs driving on the
day along with Rohan Onslow, they finished 6th at Mount Panorama.
The eventual championship drivers were Mark Skaife and Jim Richards in the
For those wondering why The Chase or "Caltex Chase" is not in the video:
Channel 7 decided to edit out The Chase section.
In 1987 Mike Burgmann died after his VK Commodore SS Group A became
airborne at 260km/h along the second hump on Conrod Straight.
Bathurst hosted the WTCC in 1987 and the FIA regulations did not allow´╗┐
international tracks to have a straight longer than 1.5 km in that class,
the second hump was removed and "The Chase" added.
In 1991 the Winfield GT-R (Skaife) reached 293km/h along Conrod Straight,
similar speeds to the V8 Supercars of today.
The 1992 Tooheys Bathurst 1000 was stopped due to torrential rain and
multiple crashes. The results were compiled using the 143rd completed lap,
18 laps short of full race distance.
The Fastest Lap of the race was -- #1 Mark Skaife -- 2:16.47
The top 10 final finishing positions for the 1992 Bathurst 1000 were as
