Roadkill Garage Full Episode Guide

  • On this episode of Roadkill Garage presented by Dodge, we're back with the 1970 Dodge Challenger known as Vanishing Paint. This car dates back to Episode 4, when we thrashed it together, and then we revisited it in Episode 34 as we upgraded the whole drivetrain.

  • One of the most popular projects from Roadkill Garage is the "Vanishing Paint" 1970 Dodge Challenger from way back on Episode 4 of the series. The car has been ignored for 30 episodes now, but when Tire Rack invited Roadkill to a race coming up later this year, David Freiburger and Steve Dulcich decided to lower their lofty goals for the car and just get it running well enough to make the trip.

  • This is an all-Ford episode, starting with the Ford Muscle Truck, taking a break to look at progress on the Disgustang 1969 Mach 1, and ending with a new-to-us Pro Street FoMoCo project car. The Ford Muscle Truck, or FMT, was first revealed on Episode 22; it's a 1968 F-100 shortbed, stepside with a swapped-in 460 big-block, C6 auto trans, and factory 9-inch rear.

  • Yes, we're talking 650 horsepower from a Ford Cleveland engine in a Jeep Commando! If you're thinking this is stupid, you're right; in Roadkill style, we're putting great parts on questionable cars in the hunt for massive burnouts, fast quarter-mile times, big wheelies, and-this time-ridiculously overpowered action in the sand and dirt drags.

  • Roadkill Garage is often about doing things quick and low-buck, and this episode is an awesome example. David Freiburger and Steve Dulcich show you how to get big-block power for dirt cheap by selecting an engine outside the mainstream; this time, it's a Buick 455 off of Craigslist.

  • Steve Dulcich had big dreams for his 1968 Plymouth Barracuda, but then it burned to the ground in the California wildfires.

  • When David Freiburger scored a 1965 Ford F-250 4x4 just like one he used to have, he saw an opportunity: road-trip the new Tater Truck to meet up with the one he sold four years ago and see if he could trade to get his old truck back.

  • Station wagons: there is no finer American institution. That's what David Freiburger wrote way back in 1998 as the editor of Car Craft magazine.

  • Vintage Chevy C10 pickups are hot, and there are tons of them around the Motor Trend world, including two 1967s that you'll see in this episode along with Freiburger's wild schemes for pickup-truck greatness.

  • Freiburger and Dulcich have a new project car, a quick and dirty '40 Ford Fordor.  Other than the lack of interior, some rust, poor suspension it really only has one main's too slow!  The guys decide to beef it up with some new heads, a new carb and a supercharger.

  • Built on the cheap in Episode 8, and winner of the highly debated and socially contested autocross of Episode 9, the beloved Crew Cab Chevelle is back! The goal: find out how fast the old four-door can go in a standing mile.

  • The Crusher Impala is the 1969 Chevy built during Episode 60 of Roadkill (the one with Mighty Car Mods from Australia) and refined in Episode 65, where it ran 11.70s in the quarter-mile, did small wheelies, and outran the Rotsun.

  • The very first episode of Roadkill Garage featured David Freiburger and Steve Dulcich doing a cheapy rebuild of the 351 Cleveland engine that had been swapped into Freiburger's 1967 Mercury Cougar, but the most memorable moments were Dulcich powershifting the car's Toploader four-speed trans like a madman.

  • First, we had the original Roadkill Chevy Muscle Truck (Roadkill Garage, Episode 6) and then the Mopar Muscle Truck (Episodes 15 and 21). So you can see what's coming: the Ford Muscle Truck!

  • The Dulcich D100 is back! On Roadkill Garage Episode 15, you were introduced to this Mopar Muscle Truck, a shortbed stepside that we loaded with a 500hp, 360ci small-block before taking it drag racing at Roadkill's first-ever Zip-Tie Drags.

  • David Freiburger's 1967 Chevy, the Crusher Camaro, is one of the industry's most well-known project cars, having been around Hot Rod magazine since 1994. This changeling is getting its latest makeover on Roadkill Garage (see episodes 14 and 16), and the retro revival wraps up here as the Crusher hits the dragstrip.

  • One of the most daunting jobs on a car is bodywork and paint, but Roadkill Garage's Steve Dulcich has no fear of hammers, dual-action sanders, and body filler.

  • There is no episode of Roadkill or Roadkill Garage that out-Mad-Maxes this one, because absolutely no one these days hacks the sheetmetal off of a 1970 Dodge Challenger to fit giant off-road tires and go desert bashing.

  • See the Crusher Camaro get its eighth engine in its 23rd year as a project car! This 1967 Camaro has been built in a number of different styles in its time with Hot Rod magazine and Roadkill, and in Roadkill Garage episode 14 we initiated the latest makeover into an early-'70s drag racer by reworking a 550-horsepower small-block into retro style.

  • Lurking in the background of many episodes_4-18 of Roadkill Garage is Steve Dulcich's 1973 Dodge D100 stepside pickup, his pet project loaded with a 550hp, 360ci, 7,000-rpm small-block Mopar and a four-speed.

  • The 1967 Chevy known as the Crusher Camaro has a long history at Hot Rod magazine as well as on Roadkill and Hot Rod Garage. Most recently, the car was transformed by Hot Rod Garage into a Pro Touring machine with supercharged LS power, but the fans spoke out: They wanted the car to return to retro! Starting with this episode of Roadkill Garage, that€™s what€™s gonna happen.
