'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 ¹70 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.

SOLD 2000 Mustang SVT Cobra R Coupe Red
2000 Mustang SVT Cobra R
Red w/Gray interior. 5.4 liter/385hp, 6-spd manual transmission.
For those of you looking for one of the rarest and meanest Mustangs ever offered, this SVT Cobra
R would certainly fit the bill!
Number 5 of only 300 built and BRAND NEW with only 55 miles, it's likely
one of, if not THE lowest mile examples on the market!
Ford SVT engineers took a stock Mustang Coupe and transformed it into
a factory race car by both adding performance parts-and taking away almost
anything that didn't contribute to it going FAST (0-60 in 4.4 sec and 12.9
sec 1/4 mile!!). First a 5.4 liter D.O.H.C. V-8 was shoehorned in between
the front fenders with a Borla Exhaust
system utilizing 3 mufflers and side exiting pipes. Then the stock T-5
transmission was swapped out for a heavy duty Tremec T-56 6-spd. Eibach
springs, induction-hardened halfshafts, a 3.55 rear axle and sticky BFG
G-Force radials w/forged aluminum wheels were added to make it handle to
the tune of 1.01 G's! Brembo front brakes w/4-piston calipers aid in
stopping power and a 21 gal. fuel cell out back for added safety on and off
The SVT boys then proceed to lighten things up a bit by removing the radio,
a/c, back seat and most of the sound deadening material found in stock Mustangs. The result is a
"Super" Cobra that is more race car than street car!
2003 Cobra test drive
This is a video I found a long time ago and decided to upload it. Guy test
drives a Cobra and runs the hell out of it before telling the salesman he
wouldn't buy it because it's black. Very funny.
