An Almost IMPOSSIBLE Build For Roadkill Nights (28 Days) – Savoy Build Video 1 – Hot Rod Garage BTS

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!
