'67 Crusher Camaro vs '70 Super Bee 1,500-Mile Burnout-Fest! - Roadkill Episode 19
On this episode of Roadkill, it's Freiburger in the Super Bee versus
Finnegan in the '67 Camaro as the guys make the trip
from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City and back to go race at the Midnight
Drags at Rocky Mountain Raceways in hopes of running the Bee on Nitrous for the first time since the Hemi was
installed. Which car will work best over 1,500 miles of mayem in three
The 700hp, blown Crusher Camaro is HOT ROD's longest-term
project car, surviving 20 years at the magazine. David Freiburger's 675hp
Hemi 1970 Dodge Super Bee is his first car, having been with him 30 years.
Both cars suffer from magazine-project-car syndrome: getting brief spurts
of attention followed by long periods of neglect. For the first time in
years, both cars were running and driving at the same time.
The Crusher Camaro is a
'67 model that was purchased for $700 in 1994 during California's
car-crushing program; it was rescued from the parking lot of a junkyard
where it was about to be handed in for crushing. It's been through a number
of engines in its time at HOT ROD magazine, and the most recent is a 489ci
bi-block (4.280 bore, 4.250 stroke) with 9.3:1 compression. It has a small,
224-at-0.050 Comp hydraulic roller cam, Holley oval-port heads, and a
Weiand 8-71 Supercharger with two Holley
850HP carbs. The engine makes 700 hp and 720 lb-ft on 5 psi Boost, but is tame enough to drive anywhere.
The transmission is a Gearstar 4L85E that's really awesome, and the Ford
9-inch is loaded with 3.50 gears. The car is styled with Center Line Auto
Drags and a nose-high stance to look like a street machine of the early
¹80s. It has run 10.60 at 125 in the quarter-mile in the same trim seen in
Freiburger's ¹70 Dodge Super Bee is powered by a 10:0:1-compression, 484ci
Hemi with ported iron cylinder heads and a Comp solid roller camshaft. It
also uses a Holley Dominator carb on a custom dual-plane intake manifold by
Dick Landy, whose shop built the long-block in 1995. It made 675 hp on the
engine Dyno, but in
the car is has smaller headers, fairly restrictive Exhaust, and a mechanical fan that pull it down
to around 600. The trans is a Gearstar 727 Torqueflite backed by a Gear
Vendors under/overdrive, and the Strange 60 rearend has 3.73 gears (a
little too high for the
natuarally aspirated combo). The car weights 4,050 pounds with the driver,
and has run 11.80 at 118 mph on the motor.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

FASTEST STREET CAR IN AMERICA - Tom Bailey's 217 MPH '69 Camaro!
1000 miles, 4 tracks, 5 days, and 5 six second passes, if that doesn't
prove that this is the fastest street car in America (possibly the world),
I don't know what does! Tom Bailey and Steve Morris not only won Drag Week
2013, but they are also the first to run 5 consecutive six second passes at
A nicely set-up V8 Vega on Telegraph rd. outside Detroit. He's barely off
idle and moving right along!
2011 Bakersfield March Meet Tony Noto Grumpy's Toy Crash
Real bummer this car crashed. Tony Noto in his 1974 Grumpy's Toy Vega Pro
Stock replica. This was hands down my favorite car at the March Meet. My
dad had a Popular Hot Rodding centerfold of this car in my room when I was
a kid. Let's hope Tony will rebuild...I want to see more Nostalgia Pro
Stock cars like this one with the vintage wheels and dry hops (something
you don't see anymore).
I hope everyone likes my little Diamond P replay tribute.
