We're all stuck at home these days, but that won't stop us from making new and interesting automotive content! MotorTrend: Working from Home takes an inside look at what all your favorite MotorTrend stars are up to while they social distance and, this week, we're digging in David Freiburger's garage. He's showing off some of the cool automobilia he's uncovered while trying to clean out and organize the space, tells us about his land-speed racing career, and even gets into a little bit of tech.
It may not look like it, but Freiburger has been working on cleaning out his garage for three weeks! This is the first time in over a decade he's even been able to walk into it! While hustling away, he's come across enough parts to build a 350 small-block—dubbed #covid350, check out his Instagram (@davidfreiburger) for updates on the build and look for it on a future episode of Roadkill—but he's also come across some cool and interesting artifacts from his time as editor-in-chief of HOT ROD magazine.
For those who don't know, David Freiburger was the longest-tenured EIC at HOT ROD in its 72 year history. He held the position for 12 years and in that time created cool events like HOT ROD Drag Week, came up with the juggernaut that is Roadkill, and has lived the wildest dreams of many a gearhead.
From original Chip Foose renderings to super-trick high-tech small-block heads, even a billet-aluminum flip flop, there is a mountain of cool stuff hidden in David Freiburger's garage. Only one man knows everything that lies in wait to be discovered, but this is your chance to catch a glimpse of a living legend in its natural habitat. Oh, David shot this whole episode on his own with an iPhone and a couple of GoPros, too!
