If you answered “yes” to each and every one of the above questions, MotorTrend's Hot Rod Garage TV show might be the right fit for your watchlist. Accurate and whimsical in equal measure, Hot Rod Garage fans follow their favorites through ups and downs, encouraging underdogs to become full-fledged hot rods. Even with Tony's departure, the future of his beloved Hot Rod Garage looks bright, and the show of projects will continue. But he is currently working as the editor-in-chief of Engine Masters magazine, where he writes Tech on Hot Rod design, Hot Rodding, Mopar Muscle, Automotive, etc.
We've done more than 90 episodes of Hot Rod Garage in the last 6 years, and I'm ready for a new challenge. David Freiburger is an American automotive enthusiast and editor-in-chief of Hot Rod Magazine and Hot Rod Garage, a famous car show. While Hot Rod Garage hosts Tony Angelo and Lucky Costa clearly enjoy their work, there are far fewer curses, key throws, and infighting in this car show project. While some project car shows focus on drama or shenanigans, the most prominent word in the Hot Rod Garage title is “Garage.
We spoke to Tony, Lucky, David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan about their thoughts on Tony's departure and the future of Hot Rod Garage. In fact, David was one of the original hosts of Hot Rod Garage until fans welcomed him to Lucky Costa to replace him. Finally, Tony rebuilds a G-Force trans in record time and turns it into Mike Finnegan's Chevy 55 to save the day and lead the team to win their class at Hot Rod Drag Week. In addition to Tony's Hot Rod Garage work, he has worked on the legendary Roadkill with Freiburger and Finnegan.
They took Hot Rod Garage to a level they didn't think possible given the budget and time constraints with which the program was launched. It was in the second season that Freiburger and Finnegan knew that Hot Rod Garage needed to find their address.
