Junkyard Rescue! Saving a 1950 GMC Truck - Roadkill Ep. 31

Опубликовано: 8 авг. 2014 г. 13 156 220 просмотров

One of the most incredible junkyards in the history of junk is Turner's Auto Wrecking in Fresno, California—and on this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan hit those 100 acres of vintage sheetmetal and go spelunking for gold! After considerable debate, the guys select a 1950 GMC shortbed truck that had been off the road for 26 years and jam to get it running and driving for the trip home to Los Angeles. At least there was a 50-percent victory. Watch as the guys revamp the Jimmy inline six, panic over a wrecked master cylinder, sweat their cajones off for four days, and explore one of the greatest old-car stashes ever!

  • SuperStriker412
    SuperStriker412 Год назад American Outdoors I somewhat agree but to be fair, the lane assist and brake assistance help prevent wrecks. But the styling is a lot better looking. I think it would be neat to take a classic car and update it so it looks original but modern engine trans and all that good stuff.
