Tight deadlines are nothing new around here! Last year, dad and I built a big tire Hellcat Challenger to race at MotorTrend’s Roadkill Nights Powered by Dodge in 3 weeks. We completely gutted a brand new car and swapped in a TH400, 9 inch, and 4 link suspensions paired with 15×15 double beadlock wheels with 33″ Quick Time Pro Slicks. It was a successful combination that carried us to a win in the Hellcat Grudge match in 2021. With that said, as Roadkill Nights approached again this year, we had to start planning a return to Woodward to defend the title we had earned last year. Now that I am co-hosting MotorTrend’s Hot Rod Garage alongside Lucky Costa, the HRG crew decided to tackle this project and build the car on the show. We went with a 1955 Plymouth Savoy that we completely gutted to build what was once a daily “un-cool” car into something that would turn heads. But the project snowballed and took a bunch of crazy turns as we had to battle conditions and obstacles no one could plan for. DT was with us for an entire month at HRG – and for an entire month it was long hours and stressful days – but I think you guys are going to enjoy this!
I will be doing all the behind the scenes coverage here for those who want more info and the official full coverage will be shown on a couple episodes of Hot Rod Garage – Season Premiere September 5th!
Gosh Darn so your so Pretty Alex
Congrats on the win at Roadkill Nights, girl! That last race you had against Westin in the final was insane! GG!

this one? would be a sweet new drag week car if you want to use the 55 as a full track car.
I live in Shawnee Oklahoma and i need help with my wife's car a 2008 Saturn outlook something is wrong. Just show me what to do, i worked in construction for 34 years and now I'm disabled so i have to work slowly on because i can't afford to take it to someone. If anyone can help me please
