A different way to spend a day at the beach.
What you’re about to see is a pair of vehicles that only true gearheads would appreciate. They’re a bit crude, often times loud, and not especially comfortable. And no, they’re not extremely pretty to look at. But what they may lack in beauty and refinement, they more than make up for in outright off-road awesomeness. Several months ago, the guys from Roadkill turned an old 1974 Chevy S10 pickup into a drag strip winner.
And now it’s back, only this time it has a new engine: a GM V8 crate engine, the very same one found in the C6 Corvette Z06. What’s it competition? A 1969 Baja Bug, an off-road contraption made specifically for the sand. Despite being a little over 20 minutes, you really ought to check out the video ahead. It’s totally worth your time.
