Roadkill Pits the Last Body-on-Frame Cop Cars against Each Other, Hijinks Ensue [Video]
We strongly feel that one of the very best car shows on YouTube (maybethebest car show on YouTube) isRoadkill. In each episode,Hot Rodmagazineeditor-in-chiefDavid Freiburgerand staff editorMike Finnegancook up a harebrained challenge for themselves involvingbig American V8s, lots of driving, lots of wrenching (both planned and unplanned), and lots of laughter. Or to use a food analogy, ifthe U.S. version ofTop Gearis a store-bought frozen burrito,Roadkillis a restaurant-prepared, tortilla-wrapped Roman orgy of meat, cheese, veggies and spices that’s bigger than some breeds of dog and comes with rice and beans on the side. Mmmm…
What? Oh, this episode ofRoadkill! It’s the current one (as of this writing), and it features a battle of the last V8-powered, body-on-frame, rear-drive police cruisers fromGMandFord, theChevrolet Caprice 9C1and theFordCrown Victoria P71. What’s more, the first part of the vid takes place in Arcadia, California, right over the border (if you ignore everything west of Fifth Avenue and east of Santa Anita Park, anyway) from our old stomping grounds in Monrovia (M-TOWN REPRESENT!). *ahem* So, yeah, watch the video and check out the previous episodes. Trust us when we say it’s time well spent.
