The End of The Epic Road Trip and a New Project Unveiled! Finnegan's Garage Ep.145

We've come to the end of our road trip from California to Georgia. In this video you'll see Newbern and I battle through the worst storm we've ever experienced as we journeyed through Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama. We managed to bring two new project boats home with us. The first boat was loaded inside of Lincoln Hawk for the trip home and if you're a fan of Roadkill then you'll recognize this 1976 Rogers Bonneville TR jet boat. The second boat has been under wraps literally and figuratively speaking, since I ordered it from Eliminator Boats in Mira Loma, California last year. We managed to tow it over 2,100 miles with a custom Kokopelli trailer riding on golf cart tires behind Lincoln Hawk and now it's time to unwrap it. We'll be refurbishing the Rogers and building the 21-foot Eliminator tunnel hull from scratch. Stay tuned for more videos on both boats plus more fun with Game Over, the 711ci twin-turbo jet boat as well.

I'm still impressed Finn moved to Georgia I commented on a roadkill video about it being a honey hole to find solid cars to restore when the picking was slim out west for project cars within months he was living there and buying the Firestone firebird somewhere I have a letter he wrote me when I was in sixth grade we had to write an essay to an editor of our favorite magazine I wrote it to Freiburger about all the work me and my older brother were doing on a 68 Dodge Monaco and about wanting to work for Peterson publications but Finnegan was the one who replied to my letter he had just got the job working for them at the time and gave me a bunch of incite on what was involved with working for them he's the reason I took automotive engine rebuilding and machining and welding courses at trade school these days I do custom interior carpentry but I have multiple garages that I don't own storing multiple project cars from Georgia and mountains of parts for if I ever get the chance to really get back into working on my cars again

Mike, when was this filmed? I am trying to get Eliminator to dust off the mold to build me a 21 to replace mine that burned in a gas fire. Please email me at rcyoung1@cox.net with any details you can share. Thank you for time.

Ever tried Aquapel? One of those products that actually does what they advertise. Makes your windshield aquaphobic and rain blows off without the need for vipers at 40+. A bit hypnotizing effect until you get used to it. Quite nice product and it lasts for months (depending on how well you apply it)

8:23 Shreveport shoutout... Independence Stadium (home of the Independence Bowl) along the highway in the rain. Gotta know how the ride quality was on that stretch of 20. Used to live in Shreveport, had to drive a big rental truck with a boat trailer in tow through there on a long distance drive a couple years ago and that was BRUTAL. Can only imagine what that must have been like with that truck AND with water getting inside.

One of the reasons why i custom ordered foam laced tarps for most of my stuff i care about. The same kind of foam you get PC cases shipped in. In rain season, everything's covered. It's not 100% sure, but most of the stuff is going to survive up to 4 cm hail.

Wow! Eliminator knocked it out of the park! Now, please listen to your wife "now get it done". Seriously, thank you bringing boats back to the mainstream. Most hot rod guys do not realize how huge the hot rod boat boat culture was back in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. As much as I love "hot rods", I love "hot rod boats" more. Appreciate all you do for the sport!
