The GT500 re-tuned the car with 110oct race fuel and wanted another chance at roll racing the infamous 585whp (MustangDyno) R35 GTR. The Whipple equipped GT500 did much better this time around than the previous race you all remember from several months ago.
Junkyard 'Cuda Rescue, With Nitrous Oxide! - Roadkill Episode 11
On this episode of Roadkill, David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD
magazine fly out of town, buy a car from a junkyard, make it run and drive,
do burnouts, add Nitrous, drag race
twice, almost die, and the auction off the car at the end. The scene begins
at CTC Auto Ranch in Denton, Texas, where the guys score a '67 Plymouth
Barracuda with a 360 V8, but without a carburetor, interior, glass, or
brakes. By the time they sort out a number of other mechanical woes,
they're off for some burnouts and some racing at North Star Dragway, right
next to the Auto Ranch. Then it's a 300-mile drive to Houston for the NMCA
Lone Star Nationals race. But, as you've come to expect from these guys,
that doesn't exactly go smoothly. But then they add NOS Nitrous and it makes everything ok as they hang
out with Jeff Lutz and Tim Reed from HOT ROD Drag Week right before they
have to sell the car and hit the plane home.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.
