I'm not sure what this show is going to be like without Tony Angelo. House of the Dragon Set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon tells the story. While the audience of the show will remember their favorite moments on camera, a lot of what Tony and the Hot Rod Garage team will remember are the many, many moments they had off-screen. Tony Angelo and Lucky Costa present a project building program that contains all the tips, tricks and heartbreakers you would expect from the Hot Rod Magazine team.
He didn't really have a consistent voice and his success was as questionable as Roadkill, as Mike Finnegan recalls, Hot Rod Garage came after Roadkill and, at the time, he didn't know that any of the shows would turn into hits. 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 addition to Tony's Hot Rod Garage work, he has worked on the legendary Roadkill with Freiburger and Finnegan. We've done more than 90 episodes of Hot Rod Garage in the last 6 years and I'm ready for a new challenge.
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. Over the years, Tony and Lucky not only saved a show that wasn't planned to live beyond its third season, but they created a rare and unique experience that made people care about Hot Rod Garage. 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. Meanwhile, Lucky wants to make sure that whoever comes on board knows how to turn a wrench, saying: Almost anyone who enjoys building cars and has a good amount of experience will work.
When it was announced that Lucky would become a permanent member of the Hot Rod Garage family, he had been away from the screen for a while. It was in the second season that Freiburger and Finnegan knew that Hot Rod Garage needed to find their address.
