Roadkill powered by Dodge brings back a Mazda pickup powered by a 455 Oldsmobile in the bed! In Episode 45, Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger bought a lemon-colored Mazda REPU mini-truck with a 455 Olds big-block mounted in the bed, powering the rear wheels through a Toronado transaxle. The seller said it did wheelies and ran 10s in the quarter-mile. Not surprisingly, the guys quickly realized the lemon wouldn't run 10s even if it had unicorn blood in the engine. In this episode of Roadkill, the guys pull out all the stops to push the Mazdarati into 10-second territory by doing a top-end rebuild in the staging lanes of a dragstrip, road-tripping on HOT ROD's Drag Weekend event, and then making one heroic pass with the nitrous button pushed!
