Rescuing an Old Drag Race Car

Roadkill

EP. 69 Season 6
|
39:29

One of the cheapest ways to go racing is to buy someone else’s abandoned project car, and that’s exactly what happens on this episode of Roadkill powered by Dodge. But do the guys get what they paid for? This time, “the guys” are Roadkill regular Mike Finnegan and guest cohost Tony Angelo (normally the host of HOT ROD Garage on the Motor Trend OnDemand). Roadkill’s David Freiburger will be back on the next episode, but he may be happy to have been absent for this misadventure with a 1977 Chevy El Camino that was a gutted, old, eighth-mile drag racing bracket car. What could go wrong with a simple 350ci Chevy engine and TH350 automatic transmission? Plenty, at least when Roadkill shows up with a mother-bottle of nitrous oxide! Roadkill is supported by Jegs, Optima Batteries, CRC Auto, Lincoln Tech, EBC Brakes, and now ESAB Welding & Cutting!
