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

Опубликовано: 8 авг. 2014 г. 12 777 426 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!

    American Outdoors Год назад That was back when cars were cool and they had no touchscreen or lane keep assistance or automatic brakes or Bluetooth and car wifi and used an acually key not a button,that's when cars were cool
  • 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.

Youtube is cool though, in places.
  • nojoke71
    nojoke71 3 года назад (изменено) +Manny Calavera Yup, Roadkill is one of the great ones, no drama just stupid fun, totally remind me of my old school buds. +dosbox907 No satellite or cable for me for over 2 years now myself. No payments for reruns and commercials anymore. Motor Trend's all you need.

  • PlatypusVomit
    PlatypusVomit Год назад Too bad that's about to change. Roadkill was just bought by Velocity, which is a broadcast TV network that has ruined several car shows already by overdramatizing them. I would guess that by this time next year Roadkill will be just another shitty dramafest. I hope to god that I'm wrong, but the future is not looking bright right now.
  • Forrest Hildebrant
    Forrest Hildebrant Год назад PlatypusVomit i think its just one of those rumors
  • PlatypusVomit
    PlatypusVomit Год назад Well, considering it was announced on Roadkill's facebook, instagram, and both finnegan's and freiburger's instagram, I'd say it's not a rumor. I just hope I'm wrong about the impact this is going to have on the show.
  • John Miller
    John Miller Год назад PlatypusVomit they will show it on there but it will always be a internet show. Hell mighty car mods is shown on discovery in Australia but they won't change. And they already said they won't change the show
  • PlatypusVomit
    PlatypusVomit Год назад I'm hoping that's true, but the track record for shows Velocity has done this to is not good.

This episode feels like it was made for me to get me off my can and get to work. It might take a dust pan and a broom to get it moved, but come hell or high water its gonna get done. Thanks for kicking me in the pants. Ride on fellas.
