Episode Transcript

(TIM)>> SO I PICKED THIS COLOR. I KNEW IT NEEDED TO BE YELLOW BECAUSE TY'S FIRST CAR WAS LIKE A MID '70'S CORVETTE YELLOW, WHICH I'M NOT A BIG FAN OF. SO I JUST WANTED TO KEEP IT IN THE YELLOW FAMILY. SOME OF THE DIE HARD MUSTANG GUYS ARE GONNA LOOK AT THE STRIPES THAT WE PUT KINDA ACROSS THE HOOD AND DOWN THE SIDE AND SAY YEAH, IT KINDA LOOKS LIKE A BOSS 302. WELL IT KINDA DOES. WELL SOME OF THE WING ON THE BACK KINDA LOOKS LIKE A '69 CAMARO. WE'RE MIXING AND MATCHING STUFF THAT WE ALL KINDA LIKE AND THROWING IT AT TY'S CHALLENGER, AND I THINK IT'S GONNA LOOK AWESOME. WELL WHILE WE'RE OUT HERE WET SANDING AND BUFFING, WE'VE GOT JAKE IN THE PAINT BOOTH FINISHING PAINT ON ALL THESE LITTLE PIECES THAT NEED PAINTED. A LOT OF THIS STUFF WE DIDN'T HAVE ROOM IN THE BOOTH TO PAINT THEM ALL TOGETHER. SO JAKE'S IN THERE TAKING CARE OF ALL THE DETAILS.

(JAKE)>> EVERYBODY THAT'S HERE MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE, AND IF IT WASN'T FOR EVERYBODY VOLUNTEERING THESE CARS WOULD NEVER GET BUILT. SO IT'S AN HONOR, IT IS.

(TIM)>> WE GOT THIS BIG GUY NAMED LANE. WE KINDA GAVE HIM A NICKNAME AND HE IS ONE BIG DUDE. GIVE US ONE OF THOSE BIEBER SWINGS.

(LANE)>> I'M GLAD I CAME. IT'S BEEN A LOT OF FUN, LOT OF WORK, AND HOPE TO COME BACK ONE DAY.

(TIM)>> HE'S GOT SIZE 18 FEET. WHAT SIZE IS THIS SHOE? ( )>> IT'S A SEVEN.

(TIM)>> AND THAT'S AN 18.

(LANE)>> YEAH!

(TIM)>> HE WAS A GOOD PLEASURE. HE RODE ALONG WITH KEEF. I THINK KEEF MAYBE PUT HIM IN THE BACK IN THE TRUNK CAUSE HE WAS TOO BIG TO RIDE IN THE FRONT, BUT HE WAS A BIG HELP.

(IAN)>> HE'S GOT THE FEVER, BEIBER FEVER.

(LANE)>> MOSTLY ABOUT MY HAIR. TIM SAID HE'S GONNA CUT IT TODAY CAUSE IT'S MY BIRTHDAY, AND I'VE JUST BEEN TRYING TO AVOID HIM TO NOT GET MY HAIR CUT. I THINK I'VE JUST GOTTA GO FINISH PUTTING UP TOOLS. GOTTA HAVE SOMEBODY TO PICK ON, SO I JUST GO WITH IT. I'M GONNA LOVE IT AND SQUEEZE IT!

(ANNOUNCER)>> ANOTHER GUY HAVING A BALL THIS WEEK IS SHAWN MYERS FROM O'REILLY AUTO PARTS. HE FEELS A SPECIAL KINSHIP WITH OUR CAR'S OWNER.

(SHAWN)>> I SPENT SIX YEARS AS A VOLUNTEER FIREMAN IN A SMALL TOWN IN MISSOURI. I'VE BEEN THROUGH ALL THE SCHOOLING, THE CLASSING, THE RUNNING INTO BURNING HOUSES, THE MVR, THE MOTOR VEHICLE WRECK, JUST EVERYDAY LIFE THAT THE FIREMAN GOES THROUGH I'VE BEEN THROUGH IT. JUST TO SEE THE WAY THESE GUYS WORK AND THE WAY THEY WORK TOGETHER, IT'S AMAZING. IT'S LIKE A FIRE DEPARTMENT, IT LITERALLY IS, IT IS JUST LIKE WORKING FOR A FIRE DEPARTMENT. THESE GUYS WORK TOGETHER WELL, EVERYBODY IS THERE TO HELP EACH OTHER. KINDA LIKE A BODY SHOP BROTHERHOOD I GUESS YOU WOULD SAY.

(EDDIE)>> SO WE'VE GOT OUR WINDOW REGULATOR OUT OF THE BLASTING CABINET. WE'VE BLOWN THE SAND OUT OF ALL THE LITTLE NOOKS AND CRANNIES, AND THE NEXT THING WE'D LIKE TO DO BEFORE WE INSTALL IT IN THE CAR IS USE THE WD 40 PROTECTIVE WHITE LITHIUM GREASE. THE THING WE LIKE ABOUT THIS IS IF YOU'LL NOTICE, IT'LL RUN INTO THOSE LITTLE CRACKS THAT ORDINARY WHITE LITHIUM GREASE IS TOO THICK TO GET INTO. SPRAY ALL YOUR PIVOT POINTS, YOUR ROLLERS, AND A LOT INTO THIS LITTLE GEAR BOX HERE. AND THEN FLIP IT OVER, DO THE OTHER SIDE, AND WORK YOUR WINDOW CRANK BACK AND FORTH TO MAKE SURE YOU'VE GOT ALL THE PARTS COATED. THIS'LL LAST A LONG TIME. YOU WON'T GET ANY DIRT AND SAND IN IT LIKE YOU WOULD NORMALLY GET WITH THE THICKER GREASE.

(MIKE)>> MARCH PERFORMANCE SUPPLIED THE COMPLETE FRONT ACCESSORY DRIVE FOR OUR CHALLENGER. NOW THIS THING IS DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE LATE MODEL FIVESEVEN HEMI. IT COMES WITH THE POWER STEERING PUMP, ALTERNATOR, A/C COMPRESSOR, AND ALL THE BRACKETRY AND HARDWARE TO INSTALL IT. NOW ALL THE BRACKET IS MADE OUT OF BILLET, AND AS FAR AESTHETICS GO, THIS IS THE BEST YOU CAN GET.

(TIM)>> YOU SEE A CHARACTER THAT WE HAVE AROUND HERE THAT COMES IN AND DOES OUR GLASS CALLED DANTE.

(DANTE)>> DANTES, DANTES.

(TIM)>> LONG HAIR!

(DANTE)>> ADVANCED AUTO GLASS.

(TIM)>> LONG BEARD TIED UP IN A PONYTAIL.

(DANTE)>> CLAP, CLAP, THE CLAPPER!

(TIM)>> HE'S ALWAYS LIKE YEAH BRO, YOU WANT TO HELP ME PUT THE GLASS IN YET DUDE, WE CAN DO THIS. GLASS KINDA FREAKS ME OUT, AND I WAS SCARED CAUSE GLASS DOES NOT LIKE ME, BUT WE GOT IT IN. OKAY, READY?

(DANTE)>> YES SIR!

(TIM)>> DANTE HAD EVERYTHING ON THE TRUCK WE NEEDED AND GLUED IT ALL IN FOR US. THANKS MAN, I MEAN THANKS BRO.

SO HERE WE ARE, THE END OF WEEK THREE. I ALWAYS THINK WE NEED TO GET A LITTLE MORE DONE WHEN IT COMES TO FRIDAY. WE DO HAVE ONE MORE WEEK OF BUILDING LEFT, BUT WHEN YOU LOOK BACK, THE BEGINNING OF MONDAY, THIS THING DIDN'T EVEN HAVE PAINT ON IT. THE ENGINE PARTIALLY WIRED, WE GOT THE FRONT AND BACK WINDOWS IN IT. WE GOT THE BATTERY CABLES RAN, THE BRAKE LINES ARE BACK ON. NEXT WEEK WE'VE GOT A WHOLE NEW FRESH CREW OF VOLUNTEERS COMING IN. WE'RE GONNA FINISH THE WIRING, WE'RE GONNA PUT THE EXHAUST BACK ON, THE INTERIOR'S GETTING DONE OFF SITE RIGHT NOW, AND THAT'S GOING IN, AND THEN WE'LL FIRE THIS BABY UP AND DRIVE IT.

(ANNOUNCER)>> NEXT, THE FINAL TEAM OF VOLUNTEERS ASSEMBLE TO GET THIS CHALLENGER ON THE ROAD BEFORE WEEK'S END, STAY TUNED!

(ANNOUNCER)>> THE FINAL WEEK OF VOLUNTEERS ARE SOME OF THE MOST EXPERIENCED WE COULD FIND, LIKE THOMAS HAYES, A MASTER MECHANIC AND TECHNICAL TRAINER FOR PEP BOYS.

(THOMAS)>> YEAH, THERE'S A LOT OF BODIES, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, THERE'S TWICE AS MANY HANDS. I'VE NEVER BEEN ON A BUILD LIKE THIS. SO FOR ME, SOMETHING LIKE THIS WOULD TAKE MONTHS OR YEARS, YOU KNOW, FROM SOMEONE DOING IT AS A PROJECT IN THE GARAGE. THERE'S ALWAYS THE STUFF THAT WE'VE DONE. BUT YOU KNOW, WITH ALL THESE PROFESSIONALS DESCENDING ON THIS THING, FOR ME IT'S IMPRESSIVE TO HAVE THIS MUCH WORK DONE THIS WAY.

(TIM)>> NINE TIMES OUT OF TEN, ONCE THESE GUYS GET HERE IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW FAR THEY TRAVEL. IF THEY'VE COME ALL THE WAY FROM NEW MEXICO OR JUST DOWN THE STREET, THEY WANT TO COME BACK.

(JESSIE)>> SHE'S COMING OUT BEAUTIFUL, OF COURSE.

(TIM)>> SO WE ACTUALLY HAD THREE GUYS THAT CAME BACK THAT WERE ON THE HUDSON BUILD. TWO OF THE GUYS FROM NEW MEXICO, JESSIE AND MICHAEL, AND THEN CHRIS KIWI WE CALL HIM, AND HE CAME AND HELPED TOO.

(CHRIS)>> IT'S LOOKING GOOD, IT'S LOOKING GOOD, THE CAR'S COMING ALONG GREAT. GET A LITTLE BIT MORE OF THE WIRING NAILED DOWN, WE'LL HOPEFULLY FIRE IT UP TODAY.

(ANNOUNCER)>> LAST MINUTE PARTS ARE ARRIVING TOO, LIKE OUR STEERING COLUMN FROM I DID IT, CUSTOM DRIVE SHAFT FROM PRECISION SHAFT TECHNOLOGIES, US RADIATOR ADDED TO OUR COOLING SYSTEM, AND A CUSTOM GAS TANK WAS DONATED BY RICK'S TANKS.

(TIM)>> STAINLESS STEEL BRAKE COMPANY STEPPED UP BIG. THEY SENT US THE BIG OLE CALIPERS, BIG DRILLED, VENTED, AND COATED ROTORS, EVEN THE BEARINGS AND ALL THE HARDWARE FOR THE FRONT. AND IN THE BACK THEY SENT US THESE CALIPERS, BRAKE PADS, BRACKETS, HARDWARE, EVERYTHING, AND EVEN A MASTER CYLINDER AND A BOOSTER.

(ANNOUNCER)>> NEW SOUTH MOTORSPORTS SPECIALIZES IN AUDIO/VIDEO, WHEELS, TIRES, LIFT KITS, YOU NAME IT. AND OWNER NICK TOURNEY PARTNERED WITH MEMPHIS AUDIO AND KENWOOD TO HOOK US UP.

(NICK)>> WE'RE DOING FIVE AND A QUARTERS IN THE FRONT KICK PANELS, SIX BY NINES IN THE REAR DECK. THEN WE'RE GOING TO MCLASS 10'S, SUBS IN THE BACK. WE'RE GONNA NEED BIG WIRE GAUGE POWER KIT IN ORDER JUST TO BE ABLE TO POWER THIS BIG MEMPHIS BELLE, OR THE BIG 1,800 WATT AMP.

(ANNOUNCER)>> INSTALLER CHRIS ROBINSON IS CHARGED WITH DESIGNING A FULL ON CUSTOM SOUND SYSTEM, INCLUDING THIS NEAT LITTLE DEVICE. K-40 DONATED THEIR TOTALLY INTEGRATED RADAR DETECTION SYSTEM WITH LASER DEFUSERS, MAKING THIS MUSCLE CAR VIRTUALLY INVISIBLE TO LAW ENFORCEMENT. (CHRIS R.)>> IT'S SUCH A NICE RADAR DETECTOR THAT IF YOU GET A SPEEDING TICKET, ONCE REGISTERED, THEY WILL PAY FOR YOUR SPEEDING TICKET.

(JOHN)>> WE KNOW THERE'S KIND OF A RIVAL BETWEEN POLICE OFFICERS AND FIREMEN. SO YOU KNOW, WE'RE JUST A LITTLE SMARTER THAN THE AVERAGE BEAR. WE PUT SOME EXTRA TRICK STUFF IN THERE.

(TIM)>> ACE TOOK CARE OF THE INTERIOR ON THIS. HE CAME ON TEAR DOWN WEEK, TOOK STUFF.

(AMOS)>> SEATS AND ALL THE PIECES I TOOK OUT, THEY LOOKED LIKE THEY WENT THROUGH A COMBINE.

(TIM)>> WHEN HE SHOWED UP, UNLOADED STUFF, HIM AND HIS HELPER TACO, MAN I WAS EVEN BLOWN AWAY. IT'S THAT MUCH BETTER WHEN YOU SEE IT IN PERSON. HE STARTED PUTTING THE HEADLINER IN, GOT THE DOOR PANELS IN, GOT THE CARPET, PUT THE BACK SEAT IN, AND THEN HE GOT OUT OF HERE CAUSE WE WAITED UNTIL THE END OF THE WEEK ONCE WE WERE DONE LAYING UNDERNEATH THE DASH TO PUT THE SEATS IN. SO IT WAS WAY EASIER TO GET UP UNDERNEATH THERE TO WORK.

(ANNOUNCER)>> NEXT IT'S A MAD DASH TO THE FINISH LINE. AND LATER OUR OWNER ARRIVES WITH HIS FAMILY FOR THE BIG REVEAL.

(DAN)>> THIS IS THE UPPER RADIATOR HOSE. IT STARTS AT THE LEFT REAR TAILLIGHT.

(ANNOUNCER)>> THE FINAL DAY BEGINS WITH SOME ADDED COLOR ON THE REAR WITH TIM'S OVERNIGHT SPRAY OF MORE CHARCOAL ABOVE THE BUMPER.

(TIM)>> HEY, HOW YOU DOING?

(GERRY)>> GOOD DAY TIM.

(TIM)>> THANKS FOR COMING IN, GOOD TO SEE YOU.

(GARRY)>> HOW'S IT GOING?

(ANNOUNCER)>> CHECKING OUT OUR PROGRESS IS PRESIDENT AND CEO OF WD 40, GERRY RIDGE. WITHOUT THEIR SPONSORSHIP THIS BUILD WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE.

(GARRY)>> IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT FOR WD 40 TO BE PART OF PROJECTS JUST LIKE THIS BECAUSE WE'RE GIVING BACK TO THE REAL CORE OF OUR PEOPLE. WD 40 MULTIUSE PRODUCT FOR 60 YEARS HAVE BEEN TRUSTED BY PEOPLE, AND WE LOVE GETTING ALONG SIDE THEM AND HELP THEM DO THEIR JOB EVERYDAY.

(TIM)>> I CONTACTED MY BUDDY DAN BAKER AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON CAUSE HIM AND HIS DAD RUN ALUMICRAFT. THEY BUILD AWESOME BILLET STREET ROD GRILLS.

(DAN)>> TIM CALLED ME UP AND SAYS, HEY DUDE, I NEED A GRILL FOR A CAR, CAN YOU DO IT FOR ME? YEAH, SURE, NO PROBLEM.

(TIM)>> YOU KNOW CHRYSLER HAVING THESE PERFORMANCE CARS CALLED SRT, SO DAN ACTUALLY CAME UP WITH THE EMBLEM S&R/T.

(DAN)>> SO I THOUGHT WE'LL JUST DO A LITTLE BIT OF A PLAY OFF OF IT. DO THE S&R SLASH "T", AND THAT KINDA TIES INTO THE SHOW PLUS THE RT MONIKER FROM THE MUSCLE CAR DAYS. IT'S A PRETTY NEAT FEELING.

(TIM)>> SO SCOTT CAME IN AND WANTED TO HELP ON THE BUILD ALSO, AND WHEN HE SHOWED UP HE STARTED HITTING ME UP. HEY MAN, CAN I SMOKE THOSE TAILLIGHTS? SAND THEM AND PUT SOME COLOR ON THEM, DARKEN THEM UP A LITTLE BIT, MAKE THEM LOOK KINDA COOL.

(SCOTT)>> I DON'T KNOW THAT ANYBODY'S DONE THIS TO A '74 CHALLENGER. HERE LATELY I'VE FOUND A NICHE WHERE PEOPLE WANT THEIR TAILLIGHTS NOT TO BE SO BRIGHT RED. SO I THINK IF WE JUST SHADE THESE A VERY LITTLE BIT TO JUST BRING THAT RED DOWN A LITTLE BIT BY PAINTING CLEAR OVER THE TOP OF THE LENSES IT'S GOING TO MAKE THEM LAST A LONGER AND BE A LOT MORE BRILLIANT. IT'S AN EASY WAY TO MAKE THAT YELLOW OR RED LIGHT KINDA BLEND IN WITH THE REST OF THE CAR AND NOT STICK AND BE SUCH AN EYE SORE.

(MIKE)>> HERE WE GO, EVERYBODY CLEAR? ( )>> YEAH. [ engine firing ]

(JASON)>> THIS CAR HAS A LOT OF HOURS PUT INTO IT. THE QUALITY IS GREAT BECAUSE THEY PUT SO MUCH TIME INTO THEM, A LOT OF HARD WORK.

(TIM)>> MAN THAT THING'S MEAN SOUNDING ISN'T IT?

(RAYMOND)>> I REALLY APPRECIATE BEING HERE AND BEING ABLE TO HELP THIS FIREMAN, WHO HAS SERVED EVERYBODY ELSE, AND I KNOW THIS GUY'S GONNA LOVE HIS CAR CAUSE I LOVE THIS CAR AND IT IS AWESOME.

(CURTIS)>> WHEN YOU SEE IT ON TV, IT'S LIKE MAN, YOU GO FROM NOTHING TO THIS AMAZING CAR, AND YOU SAY WE ONLY GOT FOUR WEEKS TO DO THIS. AND IT GOES FROM BARE METAL TO ROLLING DOWN THE STREET LIKE WE SAW. I MEAN IT'S JUST UNBELIEVABLE. IT WAS JUST GREAT!

(ANNOUNCER)>> AHEAD OUR OWNER TAKES POSSESSION OF HIS DREAM CAR, STAY TUNED!

(TIM)>> 20 DAYS, 45 VOLUNTEERS FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, AND ASSISTANCE FROM THE WD 40 COMPANY AND DOZENS OF AFTERMARKET SUPPLIERS, THIS IS WHAT WE CAME UP WITH. WHAT BEGAN ORIGINALLY AS A STOCK '74 CHALLENGER IN PRIMER IS NOW A ONE OF A KIND MUSCLE CAR THAT SHOULD EVEN MAKE THE MOPAR GUYS PROUD. CUSTOM TOUCHES FROM FRONT TO BACK, AND NOTHING SAYS MOPAR BETTER THAN A BIG OLE HEMI UNDERNEATH THE HOOD. WE CUT AND NARROWED THE FRONT AND REAR BUMPERS, ADDED A CUSTOM GRILL, HAND FABRICATED A METAL CHIN SPOILER, REAR CUSTOM WING, AND EXHAUST CUTOUTS WITH AIR DIFFUSERS ON THE REAR VALENCE, ALL NEW AND FRESH INTERIOR, AND A HUGE STEREO.

(TY)>> HI, OH MY GOODNESS I AM SO NERVOUS.

(MIKE)>> TY!

(TY)>> HEY!

(MIKE)>> MIKE FROM HORSEPOWER, HOW ARE YOU BUDDY? ALRIGHT, HOW WAS THE TRIP TY?

(TY)>> NICE, NERVE RACKING.

(ANNOUNCER)>> WHILE MIKE REMINDS TY OF THE CUDA HE GAVE UP ALMOST TWO DECADES AGO, THE GUYS PREPARE FOR THE BIG UNVEILING.

(MIKE)>> COME ON, LETS GO.

(TY)>> MY GOODNESS! THIS IS CRAZY! [ crowd clapping ]

(TIM)>> SO HOW DO YOU THINK YOUR DAD'S GONNA REACT ONCE HE SEES THIS CAR ALL DONE?

(BUBBA)>> I'VE NEVER SEEN HIM THIS NERVOUS. HE'S BEEN UP AND DOWN ALL NIGHT.

(TIM)>> THIS WAS LIKE A FATHER/SON PROJECT? AND YOU GAVE UP, AND I DIDN'T WANT ALL THE HARD WORK.

(BUBBA)>> I WAS SOPHOMORE AND HE DROVE DOWN TO TEXAS AND GOT IT AND BROUGHT IT BACK. WE DID A LITTLE BIT ON IT BUT THEN I WAS LIKE, I DON'T WANT TO WASTE MY TIME. I'D RATHER GO OUT AND DO WHATEVER WITH MY FRIENDS.

(TIM)>> HIS NAME IS NOT ON THE TITLE AT ALL?

(TY)>> NO, NO, NO!

(TIM)>> BEHIND US HERE IS PART OF THE VOLUNTEERS THAT TRAVEL FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. IN TODAY'S DAY AND AGE EVERYBODY IS ALWAYS TRYING TO COMPETE AGAINST EVERYBODY. YOU HAVE COMPANIES LIKE WD 40 THAT HELP. THERE'S NO EGOS, THERE'S NO NOTHING, WE ALL COME TOGETHER TO BUILD AN AWESOME CAR FOR AWESOME PEOPLE LIKE YOU, AND THAT'S WHAT I THINK IS VERY COOL ABOUT THIS.

(TY)>> THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH.

(TIM)>> WE HAVE LIEUTENANT RICKEY WHITE THAT CAME FROM THE MEMPHIS FIRE DEPARTMENT TO COME AND HE'S BEEN HERE HELPING. HE WAS ON WEEK ONE OF THE BUILD. HE DRESSED A LITTLE NICER THAN YOU DID TODAY.

(RICKEY)>> TY, MAN YOU'VE BEEN GIVING YOUR WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE TO YOUR COMMUNITY, AND FIRE SERVICE, AND THESE GUYS HERE, FROM ALL THESE CAR BUILDERS, THEY'D LIKE TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK TO YOU TODAY.

(TIM)>> WELL IF YOU'RE FINALLY READY, PULL THE COVER OFF.

(TY)>> OH MY GOSH, THANK YOU, HOLY COW! OH MAN THAT IS! [ crowd clapping ]

(TIM)>> YELLOW, YEAH, I KNOW YOU WERE WORRIED ABOUT THE COLOR. WE DID THE YELLOW CAR. IT'S A LITTLE BRIGHTER THAN WHAT YOUR OTHER CAR WAS. WE PUT A CHARCOAL STRIPE ON IT. WE DID A LITTLE METAL WORK AROUND THE WINDOWS AND GLUED THEM IN LIKE A LATE MODEL CAR. ALL THIS IS ALL CUSTOM BACK HERE, CUSTOM REAR WING. YOU KNOW WHAT THE MOTOR IS BUT YOU DON'T KNOW MUCH MORE ABOUT IT.

(TY)>> OOHHH!

(TIM)>> MIKE AND JOHN FROM THE HORSEPOWER SHOW BUILT YOU AN AWESOME 392 HEMI. THEY HID THE COIL PACKS, SO IT KINDA LOOKS LIKE AN OLD SCHOOL HEMI WHEN YOU OPEN IT. SO YOU WANT TO SIT IN IT?

(TY)>> YEAH!

(TIM)>> GET IN THERE, DON'T START IT YET.

(TY)>> I WON'T.

(TIM)>> JUST TURN THE KEY ON! [ trilling, beeping ]

(TIM)>> THAT'S A K-40 ELECTRONICS RL 360. IT IS LIKE A FORCE FIELD AROUND THE CAR THAT IT BLOCKS ALL THE LASERS. BASICALLY YOU CAN'T GET A TICKET. THE ONLY TIME YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO RELY ON THAT, IF YOU'RE TRYING TO GET TO THE FIRE STATION ON TIME TO HELP SAVE SOME LIVES. SO YOU WANT TO PUSH THE CLUTCH IN THERE. [ engine fires ] [ crowd clapping ]

(TIM)>> IT'S A MONSTER MAN, AND WE'VE BEEN SAVING THIS BUILD FOR THE HORSEPOWER GUYS TO BUILD US A BIG OLE MOTOR. SO THANKS TO JOHN AND MIKE FOR BUILDING SOME SERIOUS HORSEPOWER IN THIS BABY.

(TY)>> THAT IS AWESOME, THAT IS CRAZY.

(ANNOUNCER)>> A LOOK AT THE UNDERSIDE PROVES TY'S CHALLENGER ISN'T JUST A SLAP TOGETHER TV CAR.

(BILL)>> TY ON BEHALF OF THE WD 40 COMPANY WE WANT TO CONGRATULATE YOU ON THIS BEAUTIFUL CAR AND THE WORK THAT TIM AND ALL THE VOLUNTEERS DID.
