However, it isn't just a straightforward battle. The duo - renowned for their wild schemes and Roadkill antics - pull Steve Dulcich from Roadkill Garage and Lucky Costa into their whirlwind of high-octane chaos.
Mike Finnegan's 1967 C10
Mike Finnegan is a tour de force in the automotive world. His obsession for anything mechanical and powerful is legendary, whether it's twin-turbo jet-boats or robust car haulers. But the gem in the crown is his 1967 Chevrolet C10. Unlike typical restorations, Mike's C10 is a monster, hiding a crate LT4 engine that pumps out a jaw-dropping 640+ horsepower and a torque of 630 lb.-ft. Paired with this is a billet six-speed sequential transmission. On the aesthetics and comfort front, Mike didn’t compromise, choosing Forgeline wheels, Mickey Thompson tires, and an interior stitched in a unique Y-972 Gray Vinyl combined with a Y-9449 Blue Houndstooth pattern.
David Freiburger's 1974 Chevy C10
Flashback to 2007, David Freiburger's 1974 Chevy C10 marks a hallmark in his automotive journey. This was his debut LS swap, setting a trend for others to follow. Although he admits to some missteps, like an unnecessary c-notch job and overzealous front airbags, this truck embodies raw power. Under its hood lies an all-aluminum LS6 ripped from a Corvette, complemented by a DYNAMIC Turbo 400, a Gear Vendors Overdrive, and a robust Ford 9-inch rear. Mismatched fenders and a primered front don't detract from its charm - with Finnegan himself confessing that its exhaust note feels like a symphony.
As Freiburger and Finnegan take their trucks on a grueling road trip to LS Fest West, Roadkill promises a buffet of thrills, laughter, and probably some questionable decisions. With Finnegan's fresh build and Freiburger's iconic Muscle Truck, it's going to be a showdown for the ages. Buckle up, folks – it's Roadkill time!
