Roadkill Garage is an automotive show from Motor Trend OnDemand that aired in 2016 starring Steve Dulcich, David Freiburger, and Wiley Stevens. The show follows the three car enthusiasts as they embark on various challenges and projects, documenting their progress as they transform beat-up cars into high-performance vehicles.

The series is an offshoot of the popular show Roadkill, which premiered on YouTube in 2012. Roadkill Garage focuses solely on the garage and workshop aspects of the original show, as Dulcich, Freiburger, and Stevens take on a new car restoration project in every episode. Viewers watch as the team dismantles and improves upon old and rundown cars, turning them into mean machines ready to hit the pavement.

One of the trademark aspects of the show is the camaraderie and banter between the hosts. Dulcich, the show's lead mechanic, brings vast experience and knowledge of car restoration to the team, and it is evident in the painstaking attention to detail he puts into every aspect of the build. Freiburger, on the other hand, brings an infectious enthusiasm for car culture, often pushing the boundaries of physics and engineering as he and the team try to come up with crazy and inventive ways to modify and upgrade the cars they work on. Meanwhile, Stevens provides the comic relief and adds his own flair to the team's antics.

Throughout the series, the team tackles a wide range of cars, some of which might seem impossible to restore. From classic American muscle cars to obscure imports, they leave no stone unturned in their search for the next project. The build process often involves a significant amount of fabrication work, as the hosts create custom components that cannot be salvaged or purchased elsewhere.

One of the standout builds from the series is a 1970 Cuda, which the team bought in a relatively dilapidated state for only $2,500. They spent the entire episode dismantling the car, revealing a multitude of issues that could have made it impossible to restore. Nonetheless, the team overcame every obstacle, replacing and upgrading components at every turn, until they eventually emerged with a fully restored, high-performance Cuda that could rival any other classic muscle car.

Another feature of the show is the extensive use of time-lapses, which provides viewers with a sense of the amount of work that goes into each build. Throughout the episodes, we see the team work tirelessly for hours on end, sometimes through long nights and weekends, to ensure that their project is completed to the highest standard.

In addition to the build projects, the show also offers practical tips and insights for car enthusiasts, especially those interested in undertaking their restoration projects. The hosts often explain the reasoning behind their decisions and provide guidance on how to apply similar techniques to one's own car.

Overall, Roadkill Garage offers an exciting and entertaining glimpse into the world of car restoration. The camaraderie between the hosts, their infectious enthusiasm for cars, and the innovative solutions they come up with make for engaging viewing. Through their impressive skills and expertise, Dulcich, Freiburger, and Stevens show us that anything is possible in the garage, no matter how daunting or overwhelming the task at hand may seem.

Roadkill Garage is a series that is currently running and has 8 seasons (110 episodes). The series first aired on July 8, 2016.
