Well, fans of both Fast N’ Loud and Street Outlaws got to see Gas Monkey Garage’s Mega Race car and what it took to build (and then fix) over the past few weeks. However, it’s now Big Chief’s turn to showcase what the Street Outlaws have planned for Mega Race in the first Street Outlaws episode highlighting the build. Monkey from Midwest Street Cars said it best when he pointed out to Big Chief that it took about two years to build the CroMod and another two years to get it right. Now both garages only have the allotted six weeks, which is no small task.
Big Chief had his mind set on a 1970 GTO, similar to The Crow and according to last night’s episode he managed to find “the very twin turbo Pontiac door car racecar” that was a six second car back in the 90s. They’re going with a different set up though — a Pontiac engine, Rossler Transmission and Mark Williams rear end rated at 3,500hp. It was all hands on deck at Midwest Streetcars Automotive to try and get their car completed in the first episode of two.
Although a fully finished car hasn’t appeared on the show yet a sneak peak has appeared on the Internet…
