Since the guy who wrote the article and the editor of Hot Rod are in this video, no surprise they are similar.

But this time they use 5 leaf blowers.

After the first roadkill video of the jeep was posted I watched them all Sunday. Should we start a thread for each? I think there is 12.

I can't pick a favorite episode either. I still laugh at the dog that blows chow over Freiburger in the Elky episode.

I remember those! With the 305 I believe that was the fastest GM product that year.

A couple freinds had v8 monzas in high school, they were pretty fun cars. The 135 hp 305 was the "big" motor, most v8s got the 262. Some people say the 350 was a option but I never saw one.

And the towel to cover it was kinda funny. The drag week was my favorite but not the same as them using 900 freeze plugs to go half a mile kind of typical roadkill funny.

CA only - with CA emissions. 305 Monza wasn't CA certified.

My mom had one of those in high school, she has lots and lots of stories of street racing dudes after class and smoking them in the races.
