Roadkill powered by Dodge brings again a Mazda pickup powered by a 455 Oldsmobile within the mattress! In Episode 45, Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger purchased a lemon-colored Mazda REPU mini-truck with a 455 Olds big-block mounted within the mattress, powering the rear wheels by way of a Toronado transaxle. The vendor mentioned it did wheelies and ran 10s within the quarter-mile. Not surprisingly, the blokes shortly realized the lemon would not run 10s even when it had unicorn blood within the engine. On this episode of Roadkill, the blokes pull out all of the stops to push the Mazdarati into 10-second territory by doing a top-end rebuild within the staging lanes of a dragstrip, road-tripping on HOT ROD’s Drag Weekend occasion, after which making one heroic cross with the nitrous button pushed!
