Street "Legal" Stock Car Body Swap - Roadkill Ep. 46

The Roadkill guys finally did what they've been planning for three-plus years! Long ago they bought a late-model circle track race car and planned to drive it to the Deep South, but the car could not be insured because it had no VIN. Solution? Install a body that has a VIN! That's exactly what you'll see in this episode, as a 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo is transformed into the beast now known as the Nascarlo! It even drives on the street! And races on the dirt track! But suffice it to say it does not all end well. Roadkill is powered by Dodge and supported by Eastwood Company, Dickies, and Optima Batteries.

Roadkill 50th Episode Special! 10-Car Showdown! - Roadkill Ep. 50
Roadkill survived 50 episodes! In that time, we’ve built a whole lot of cars, and in this episode we’ve got a shootout of the 10 that are still running and driving (and that have appeared on the show since our similar competition for the 25th episode). Fans asked for this, so we delivered! It’s the very least we can do to thank all of you who have watched our show over the last four years. Big thanks to Dodge for keeping us going, too, and to supporting sponsors CRC, Jegs, Lincoln Tech, Cooper Tires, Pioneer and Optima Batteries! The cars in this episode are the NAScarlo from Episode 46; the Mazdarati from Episode 45; the Raunchero from Episodes 2, 13, 14, 25, and 32; the Crop Duster from Episode 40 and Roadkill Garage Episode 2; Stubby Bob from Episode 44; Harry from Episode 48; the Muscle Truck from Episodes 18, 28, and 38; General Maintenance from Episodes 43 and 47; the Draguar from 7, 41, and 47; and the Vette Kart from 35 and 47. Why no General Mayhem ’68 Charger? It was out on display at an O’Reilly Auto Parts convention. Why no Rotsun? The crank was broken in half. For more behind-the-scenes details on all 50 episodes, make sure to grab issue Number 4 of Roadkill magazine. Thanks to Dodge, Roadkill is still free on YouTube 12 times in 2016!

Rear-Engine Mini-Truck Madness! Roadkill Ep. 45
This time around, Freiburger and Finnegan travel to Santa Rosa, California, to drive a crazy '74 Mazda REPU mini-truck all the way back to SoCal, where they'll compete in Optima's Search for the Ultimate Street Car Challenge. The Mazda is an oddity, originally powered by a rotary engine but later converted to Olds Toronado front-wheel drive drivetrain sometime in the late-1980s. With a 455ci big-block and '69 Toronado transaxle slid between the rear frame rails, the seller claimed wheelies and 10-second ETs. However, Finnegan and Freiburger quickly discover their $5,000 mini-truck has more style than substance. Can they hang with the big dogs at the races? Special thanks to our official product sponsors, Dickies, Optima Batteries and Eastwood Tools.

Dirt-Track Challenger Rescue and Thrash! - Roadkill Ep. 54
For this episode of Roadkill powered by Dodge, David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan wrote a Facebook post seeking the coolest car they could buy from a fan for a rescue and adventure. The winner was a 1970 Dodge Challenger that had been set up as a dirt-track race car in the ’90s but was then ignored for a decade-plus. The guys made a trek north to Oregon to hang out at a Mopar-and-llama farm to revitalize this long-lost race car, which turned out to be in surprisingly good shape once they looked past all the welded body panels and the rollcage made of water pipe. But, of course, junk is never quite as flawless as it seems when Roadkill gets involved, so the road trip turns into the normal breakdown-fest before the glorious and violent dirt-track thrashing could begin. Roadkill is supported by Optima, Cooper Tires, Pioneer, Lincoln Tech, CRC Industries, and Jegs!

Thrashing Roadkill Project Cars! - Roadkill Ep. 47
In this episode you’ll see a huge road trip that includes Freiburger-versus-Finnegan showdowns with crazy burnouts in the General Mayhem and General Maintenance; drag racing with the Blasphemi, General Mayhem, Draguar, and Vette Kart; and road-racing in the Vette Kart and General Maintenance. It’s all part of Roadkill Takes America, presented by Dodge, an event that was held in August of 2015. Roadkill fans were encouraged to follow along as hosts Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger road-tripped from Detroit to Ft. Worth (Texas) making stops at Beech Bend Raceway Park, Holley Performance, Comp Cams, Hallet Motor Racing Circuit, Tulsa Raceway, Hajek Motorsports Museum, Painless Performance, and finally Coyote Drive-In where episodes of Roadkill were shown on the big screen. Wanna know the best parts of this episode in our opinion? The massive burnout in the Comp Cams parking lot, the shriek of the Blasphemi’s blown Hemi at the drag strip, and the sound of the Hellcat on the road course. The worst part? Our driving skills on a damp road course. Don’t miss it. Roadkill thanks Dodge for a full season as our presenting sponsor, and welcomes all our official product sponsors: Optima Batteries, Eastwood Co., Dickies, Lincoln Tech, and Jeg’s!
