Hot Rod Magazine’s David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan, the two guys behind the popular Roadkill program on Motor Trend’s Youtube Channel paid a visit to the Goodguys 5th Spring Nationals in Scottsdale to take a crack at the AutoCross with the show’s Chevy powered, turbocharged ’71 Datsun Z, affectionately known as “Rotsun.”
A running joke on the show is to compare Roadkill’s stable of, “interesting” cars like the Rotsun to the performance of Motor Trend’s Kia Rio 5. Being the Goodguys, we allowed them to run the Kia vs the Rotsun on track in Scottsdale (a very rare exception) for comparison sake. You’ll have to see the video to see how it did!
We like these guys and would welcome them back anytime. Their show is humorous, interesting and features a lot of cool hot rodding and racing tricks that could come in handy to any of us. We give their latest episode a hearty two thumbs up!
