Every month, Hot Rod magazine hosts club members for a VIP tour of the HOT ROD, Roadkill and Hot Rod Garage facilities in the Los Angeles area. The Roadkill Garage show is mostly filmed in Steve Dulchich's own garage, which is located on his farm. While the production location of the series is in Southern California, Dulchich's garage is where most cars are worked on and stored. If you're a fan of the show, you may have seen Steve Dulchich's garage in the background of Roadkill Garage.
Hosted by the editor-in-chief of Hot Rod magazine, David Freiburger, along with editor Mike Finnegan, the show has become a hit with viewers. Freiburger and Finnegan have taken Hot Rod Garage to a level they didn't think possible given the budget and time constraints with which the program was launched. The region where Hot Rod Garage is filmed is known for its agricultural products, especially its grapes, and is often touted as one of the most productive regions in the world. Before becoming a YouTube celebrity with Roadkill, Freiburger was already a legend in the industry, working as editor-in-chief of Hot Rod magazine.
We spoke to Tony, Lucky, David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan about their thoughts on Tony's departure and the future of Hot Rod Garage. It was in the second season that Freiburger and Finnegan knew that Hot Rod Garage needed to find their address. Finally, Tony rebuilt a G-Force trans in record time and turned it into Mike Finnegan's Chevy 55 to save the day and lead the team to win their class at Hot Rod Drag Week. Even with Tony's departure, the future of his beloved Hot Rod Garage looks bright, and the show of projects will continue. He didn't really have a consistent voice and his success was as questionable as Roadkill's, as Mike Finnegan recalls: "Hot Rod Garage came after Roadkill and, at the time, we didn't know that any of the shows would turn into hits.".
