If you have been paying attention to the automotive social media world recently you may have seen the series of Tweets and FB postings that have been volleyed back and forth between Roadkill and Gas Monkey Garage. They have been taking some swipes at each other since Finnegan and Freiburger challenged the guys to a….errr…challenge. For a while it seemed like Richard Rawlings and crew were set to blow it off but now in a video that was released yesterday, Rawlings has accepted the challenge and done so in a profanity laced video that we have embedded below. No specifics have been given on the challenge but as Rawlings states, he doesn’t care what it is, he just wants to make the annoying Roadkill guys go away.
So long as it does not involve making something look good, making something operate with a hood permanently affixed, making something get somewhere on a very tight time schedule, making something comfortable, making something that does not leak, making something that you’d want your kids to ride in, making something where tetanus is less a chance and more a “when” type thing, making something that has four good tires, or making something that has hydraulics for suspension, we think that David and Mike have a good shot and cleaning house here. The van has been pretty good to those guys and vehicles like Finnegan’s ’55 continue to terrorize the highways and byways so we say the above in jest.
One thing we’re not joking about it our wish that they bury these guys and bury them good. Think they can do it?
