"HE'S TEARING THIS THING APART LIKE HE'S AT PICK-N-PULL."
The Gearheads sit down with long-time friend David Engle of Engle Brothers Fabrication to talk brunchtime. Namely a brunch that didn't happen, really.
Without giving too much away (you'll have to tune in on Amazon Prime Video this Friday, April 3, 2020 and watch the new episode of Stories N' Steel), it involved a secret overhaul of Brian's Challenger. Calling in friends from all over, some of whom made the cross-country trek to be a part (like Tim Strange), the gang pulled a supercharged surprise. From Hotchkis Sport Suspension to a Magnuson supercharger, Baer six-piston brakes, Toyo tires, a carbon fiber Speedkore spoiler and custom badges from Alumicraft Street Rod Grilles, it was an ambitious one-day project to say the least. It even got its own t-shirt, featuring artwork by Round Six's Del Swanson. You can grab your very own RIGHT HERE.
You can get inside of Brian's head (don't say that we didn't warn you) by reading his take on the day HERE.
