Roadkill Goes Off-Road in a 1980 Chevy Monte Carlo Lowrider (W/Video)

In true "Roadkill" fashion, Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger just wing it when they decide to buy a car and pick a road trip without the other knowing. What could possibly go wrong when Freiburger buys a 1980 Chevrolet Monte Carlo lowrider and Finnegan chooses to drive across the desert to Vegas?

Starting out with a broken car is never a good way to go, and after breaking the hydraulic lines and starting a small fire, it was time to take the lowrider to a shop. With everything fixed, the next step was learning how to hop. Was it better in neutral or park? Could they even get the front end off the ground?

Just getting the car ready for the road trip was filled with mishaps, but when they finally get the Monte Carlo out on the road, even more problems arise. However, with two extra sets of tires including a set of Super Swamper off-road tires, the trip is marginally more likely to succeed.

Watch the video above to see Freiburger and Finnegan travel from the state line to Vegas on dirt in a 1980 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Do you think they can make it all the way to their meet-up with their fans waiting for them at EBC Brakes?
