Say Hello to The Death Metal Dodge Charger! Finnegan's Garage Ep.76

This video offers an update on the "Trade My Truck" debacle and my 1969 Dodge Charger, which Kibbe alerted me was for sale last year. The charger is a legit barn find, stashed away in Indiana for 50-plus years before it was drug outside and put on eBay. I bought it, Tony Angelo and I filmed a Roadill episode about reviving it, and then the motor died one summer night last year.
The drivetrain consists of a 383ci Dodge big-block, which is backed by a Silversport Transmissions six-speed conversion kit. The kit bolts a Tremec Magnum manual gearbox into the B-body with ease. The car is called Death Metal because it doesn't drive straight, the four-wheel truck drum brakes don't work that well, and the rollcage might actually be more dangerous than not having one at all. Nevertheless, I love the car and in this episode we'll show you what broke and how we fixed it. I think you'll be surprised!
Here's a link to that cool MSD ready-to-run distributor that we got from Summit Racing:

I know where there's an old dirt track racer 57 Chevy. It looks much like this Charger. I haven't got the owner to unload it yet. Edit: also a 37? (Cant remember) Ford roundy-round dirt car. Real deal racers are bad ass.

I love Boshears optimism..."Yeah..." Also, I agree with the guy below, we DEFINITELY appreciate you sticking with FIplace. I have a subscription to MTOD, so I'd see you anyway, but I still appreciate having the ability to watch your channel for free (although I also have a FIplace Premium subscription).

A good friend of mine used to buy the cars and trucks off of the American airmen when they went home and didn't want to transport them back across the "pond". I saw Cougars, Satellites and Super-bees - most force-fed 440 lumps. I took a 440 "Blues Mobile" (was that a monaco?) up the road from my place. It was painted green and white and looked like Jake and Elwood's car - even down to "To Protect and Serve" logo on the wing (fender !!) . All of the cars were cool but yes, Electricguy, when he got hold of Chargers (on 2 occasions), guys came-by just to "look" ! Before I go to the "V8 - run wot u brung" in the sky, I want to "drive angry" a '68/'69 charger - black paint and plenty of rubber !! I may have to get over and spend a holiday (vacation) in your "Sunshine States" ! Mike, please say "hi" to David Freiburger - the 2 of you were awesome on Roadkill. Happy new year to you all . Regards, Clive . (Surrey , England )

i would have enjoyed watching the roadkill ep on this, too bad roadkill got put behind a paywall. The show itself is now...roadkill. Glad Finnegan is still here. Subscribed.

Guys, run this again but only listen to the engine when you first tried to start it. Don't look, listen. You will hear that it jumped time. I know you were thinking 'It's all new!' and I likely would have done what you did. I didn't know what you did and it's obvious, This is a case of you were to close to the problem. Excellent catch. I like watching because you DON'T know it all and are willing to admit it. I would love to stop in on non-film day and hang out - I'll buy lunch so long as the 3 of us can eat for a hundred bucks! MMmm Steak...

I guarantee the pipe they cut out was stronger than the ones they replaced it with. Thicker wall is stronger/better. It's also heavier. Maybe they were trying to increase fuel economy.
