On this week’s episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan decide to take two of Hot Rod’s project cars on a 1500-mile road trip from Los Angeles to a drag strip in Salt Lake City, Utah, via the Las Vegas Strip. Though in pristine condition compared to the cars Roadkill normally drives, Hot Rod’s 1970 Dodge Super Bee and “Crusher” 1967 Chevrolet Camaro certainly have some interesting challenges of their own.
Freiburger owns the Crusher Chevrolet Camaro and Super Bee, and both make big power. The Crusher Camaro, a Hot Rod project car since the early ’90s, sports a supercharged 700-hp Chevy V-8 up front, while the Super Bee has a 675-hp Hemi V-8 under hood. Though the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Super Bee are cleaner than most Roadkill cars, neither is trouble-free.
Driving two highly-modified classics to Salt Lake City via Las Vegas presents quite a few challenges, heat being chief among them. After crafting some creative ways to beat the heat, Freiburger and Finnegan make it to the drag strip, with about an hour to spare before the strip closes. Will the Crusher Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Super Bee be able to go head-to-head at the strip? Which will win? Find out on the latest Roadkill.
