This 1963 Plymouth Sport Fury was about as close to a drag-ready race car as you could buy from a dealer in ’63. Besides its no-nonsense appearance, this car came equipped with the 426 Max Wedge Super Stock V8, a powerful competition engine boasting 11.1:1 compression and an advertised 415 HP at 5600 RPM. The dual-quad “short ram” intake, high-lift cam, free flowing exhaust, manual trans, Sure Grip differential, and a lack of accessories helped these cars stack up records in Super Stock drag racing. This one is from the Brothers Collection.
It’s a project-car mishmash this time on Roadkill, powered by Dodge. It starts out Roadkill enough, with Finnegan surprising Freiburger with a ’50 Ford 2-ton truck that the guys thrash to shorten up into a bobber rat rod. Somewhere along the way the truck gets named Stubby, then Bob, and then it really doesn’t matter because the junk doesn’t get done in time to race from Atlanta to Wisconsin for the Car Craft Summer Nationals show. But the guys have to be there anyway. Watch as they thrash to fix the Hemi-powered Blasphemi ’55 Chevy Gasser, then cannonball to Wisconsin in Roadkill’s ’69 El Camino only to show up late. But there’s Roadkill fun anyway, with action on the autocross and the drag strip. It’s kind of a big mess, but a lot of fun as usual. Because Roadkill.

John Snyder Racing Street Fighter at The World Cup Finals – Import vs Domestic!
Jay hangs out with Rob Dickinson of Singer Vehicle Design, the legendary Christian von Koenigsegg, and Jay checks out the new Mercedes-AMG GT S.
Although many have tried, it’s very rare to see a quick street driven RB powered GT-R go fast using twin turbochargers, most opting for a big single.
Built by CV Performance, John’s GT-R is now the quickest R32 in the world on street radial tyres. Weighing in at over 3800 pounds, Power comes from a custom 3.2L Nissan RB engine boosted by twin Precision turbochargers and a Motec EFI system that’s good for over 1000hp to the wheels. In order to maintain reliability John has opted for a Powerglide transmission that is mated to the factory four wheel drive system.
