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.

Knox Mountain Hill Climb 2011 - Yarko Petriw FF1600 Record Breaking run
This was my second run on day two of the amazing 2011 Knox Mountain
Hillclimb. The car is a Swift DB1 FF1600 (formula ford). Very proud to
finish 1st in class, 3rd overall out of 83 competitors and to break the
class record which has stood since the mid 90's. (by over a second!).
There's definitely more time in the car (as evidenced by my missed shift in
turn 6 for starters) and we look forward to correcting mistakes and trying
to best our times again next year.
This was my first time competing in this event and we will certainly be
back for more. The Knox Mountain Hillclimb is the oldest paved hillclimb in
North America having just finished it's 54th year of competition. It takes
place every Victoria Day long weekend in Kelowna BC Canada.
Knox Mountain Hill Climb 2013 Saturday highlights
Canada Motor Sports
A brand new video for the 2013 season... Knox Mountain Hill climb 2013
Saturday highlights. The Knox Mountain Hillclimb, is run annually on Knox
Mountain Park Road, in the City of Kelowna. The road, while paved, is
narrow with off-camber corners, and steep grades; a nice Sunday drive, but
hardly a race track. It is 2.2 miles (3.5km) long, and climbs approximately
800 feet (245 meters) in elevation for an average grade of 6.7%.
Past its 50th year, Knox Mountain is the longest annually running paved
hillclimb in North America. The event attracts top drivers from throughout
the Pacific Northwest, looking for the challenge and thrill of being
Cars are run one at a time, each trying to reach the top in the lowest
elapsed time. Drivers/cars compete in various classes from open wheeled
formula cars to powerful large engined GT cars. But, each hopes to be "King
of the Hill", earning the fastest time of the weekend.
The current hill record is 1m:37.065, held by John Haftner of Vancouver,
British Columbia. Times under two minutes are considered exceptionally
fast, with few drivers achieving that and even fewer sedans having ever
achieved that. Most times fall between 2m00s and 2m30s. To achieve top
times, speeds in excess of 160kpH must be reached on the short straights.
The road corners are known by their "numbers" and include three
switchbacks; each corner has its own features varying from steepness to
camber, to steep drop-offs if you go too wide.
A great group of cars screaming up Knox... Sunbeam Tiger, Mustang Boss 302, Minis, Civics,
Miatas, a stunning V8 powered MGB-GT, 240z, Shelby Daytona Coupe, Porsche
911 Carrera and GT3, BMW, Toyota and a tricked out VW golf riding on an
Audi TT platform with a 450+ HP 4 cylinder!
Thank you to Bryan Fulton and all the volunteers and drivers. A great day
