Bam! Stubby Bob goes big-time in this episode of Roadkill, presented by Dodge. In episode 44 of Roadkill, Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger took a 1950 Ford F6 dump truck and shortened the wheelbase to just 102 inches so it would look freaky-cool—but the truck wasn’t road trip–ready by the end of the show. This time, the truck is transformed by a supercharged big-block Chevy in the back with a Gearstar 4L80E transmission and a V-drive from a boat—all set up like a ’60s dragstrip exhibition wheelstander.

Derek and the Silver Unit had an unfortunate incident a few weeks back that sent them into the wall at 133 MPH! Now they return to Outlaw Armageddon with the car fixed up and making passes! This big nasty Winger Racing Engines Camaro is putting down some serious power on spray! Lining up against the likes of Monza and The ’55 2.0, Derek had his work cut out for him!
The Henson Racing Engines corvette dubbed “Plan B” headed to Outlaw Armageddon to get a piece of the action everyone was buzzing about down at Thunder Valley Raceway Park in Noble, Oklahoma!

This thing gets down!
Roadkill powered by Dodge brings back a Mazda pickup powered by a 455 Oldsmobile in the bed! In Episode 45, Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger bought a lemon-colored Mazda REPU mini-truck with a 455 Olds big-block mounted in the bed, powering the rear wheels through a Toronado transaxle. The seller said it did wheelies and ran 10s in the quarter-mile. Not surprisingly, the guys quickly realized the lemon wouldn’t run 10s even if it had unicorn blood in the engine. In this episode of Roadkill, the guys pull out all the stops to push the Mazdarati into 10-second territory by doing a top-end rebuild in the staging lanes of a dragstrip, road-tripping on HOT ROD’s Drag Weekend event, and then making one heroic pass with the nitrous button pushed!
