Junkyard-Rescue 1969 Mustang Mach 1! - Roadkill Ep. 66

An abandoned Mach 1 is a dream find! In this episode of Roadkill powered by Dodge, David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan head to Colorado Auto & Parts in Englewood, Colorado, and visit the Corns family—builders of the crazy radial-Cessna-powered 1939 Plymouth truck you’ve seen all over the Internet and in Roadkill magazine. Colorado Auto is a giant you-pull-it yard with heritage back to 1959—with a good stash of vintage cars that have been there for decades. One of them was a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 that had been melting into the ground since 1980. But 37 years of neglect are not daunting to Roadkill, so the guys figure out how to get it running and driving. First, they’ve got to deal with 37 years of raccoon poop, which is just part of bringing the Disgustang into the Roadkill fleet of project cars.

Building Finnegan's Dream-Car Firebird! - Roadkill Ep. 67
On this episode of Roadkill powered by Dodge, we do the Tire Rack One Lap of America race the Roadkill way: buying a 1969 Pontiac Firebird that hasn't run in 17 years, changing every mechanical bit of it in three days, and then hitting the road for action! We do all this while assembling one of Mike Finnegan's dream cars—a first-gen Firebird—to conjure up bygone days of blasting around in his high-school buddy's car. Tony Angelo from HOT ROD Garage joins us for long days of wrenching and longer miles of driving on the Roadkill quest to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Junkyard Turbo 5.0 Power for the Rotsun! - Roadkill Ep. 64
Roadkill is powered by Dodge, but on this episode, the world’s most revered rust bucket gets powered by a used Ford 5.0L Mustang V-8 with a Power Stroke diesel turbo! Our old 1971 Datsun 240Z earned its fame with a junkyard turbo on a Chevy 4.3L, but that V-6 finally failed us for the last time and we kicked it to the curb because the crankshaft broke in two during the 24 Hours of LeMons race on Episode 42. We heard Ford 5.0L V-8 blocks break in half at 500 hp, and what better vehicle to test that theory than the Rotsun? We scored a beat-up Fox-body Mustang for $1,500 and threw the engine and trans into the Rotsun, along with the ol’ used turbo that was made for a Ford Power Stroke diesel truck. But the big question is: Will the Rotsun finally fail to fail? Find out on this episode of Roadkill.

Blown Impala vs. Turbo Rotsun! - Roadkill Ep. 65
In this episode of Roadkill powered by Dodge, it’s a legit shootout of the performance potential of two hot project cars: the legendary Rotsun 1971 Datsun 240Z that was stuffed with a Ford 5.0L and a Power Stroke turbodiesel on Episode 64, and the 1969 Chevy Impala that’s loaded with the 489ci, supercharged big-block Chevy that used to be in Hot Rod magazine’s Crusher Camaro. Mike Finnegan sides with the Rotsun and David Freiburger bonds with the Impala as each guy heads separately to the chassis Dyno to discover power numbers that remain a secret to the other host. Next, there’s a 500-mile road trip to Tucson Dragway for a heads-up showdown. Will the Impala run as quickly as it looks? Will the Rotsun fail to fail for two episodes in a row? You’ll have to find out by watching the bloodthirsty power showdown in this episode of Roadkill.

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!
