Hauling Mom's Christmas Tree with My Pro Street '67 Firebird: Finnegan's Garage Ep.122

Mom needed her Christmas tree brought home and I needed to test drive my barn-find 1967 Pontiac Firebird aka The Rubber Duck after installing a Blower Shop 8-71 Supercharger and dual Quickfuel carburetors. So we did both. And we did burnouts with the Christmas tree on the roof of the car and it was epic! Here's the details on the car:
I found it in a barn behind Paradise Dragstrip in Calhoun, Georgia. The owner's wife was kind enough to sell it to me and with the help of my friends we got it running after it had sat dormant for 16 years. There are two new episodes of Roadkill on the Motor Trend App about rescuing and road-tripping the Firebird.
Since then, I've replaced the broken BBC with another big-block chevy that came out of Newbern's Nova. I had it rebuilt and we just put a used Blowershop supercharger on top to complete the old school Pro Street vibe of this awesome car. Behind the engine is a Gearstar TH400 with a transbrake and a Gear Vendors Over/Undrive unit and a Dana 60 rear axle filled with goodies from Quick Performance. It has 3.73 gears and a limited slip differential.
I haven't dynod the engine yet but i will in an upcoming video. Want a Firebird shirt? go here: www.fsmgarage.com/products/the-rubber-duck-tee

Man. I don't know if you ever get tired of hearing this but damn you build fine automobiles. You are a master of the hotrod craft. Do you guys have a place where you post what projects you're looking for? I wouldn't mind contributing at cost just to see what you guys make of it. The hours of entertainment and inspiration that you have supplied to me over the years are well worth it. I just wish I could sit on the sidelines and learn directly from the masters.

Hi Mike, I really like the show, as well as Roadkill & Roadkill Garage. My "impractical but tons of fun" ride is a '23 T-bucket. My favorite episodes are the long road trips with you and Dave. Aside from all the gearhead stuff, the scenes where you interact with your parents are awesome. It's obvious that there is a lot of love there. I've been fortunate to have the same type of relationship with my parents. "Best day at work ever!"

oh man what an episode, seeing you and your mom smiling in and enjoying a car that is partly inspired by the version of the crusher Camaro you drove on the episode that roadkill fans were introduced to you dad had something really poetic in it i think. may have made a grown man cry just a little, but in a good way. i hope you and all your family have a lovely christmas and thanks for making me smile :)

Had a Gen3 Trans AM with the rear hatch. Nothing special but while driving it home one Christmas season I saw a beautiful 9ft tall tree for a good price. Opened the hatch shoved the tree inside all the way up to the dash and out the back. Worked pretty well.

To those people that voted this down I ask a simple few questions 1. What have you got against Christmas 🎄 2. Why do you hate a classic car with an awesome build 3. Why do you hate burnouts 4. and finally, why do hate sons who love their mums.

Love it! 40 years ago me and my older cousin drove a 68 Firebird 400 every weekend to the Swiss ski resorts to go party. We had so much fun! I then later bought a 1972 Formula 455 and continue the runs to the mountains I honor of my late cousin! So sweet of you Mike to go get the Christmas tree with your mom. You should have let her driving it!
