Volkswagen Goes Up In Flames On The Drag Strip

We’ve found another situation where a hot rod blows up on the drag strip. This time, an eight-valve VW blows up in a fireball. But you have to hand it to the driver since she gets the car stopped and stays in her lane despite even with fire consuming the car. Luckily, she walked away from the crash.

This week on PowerNation Katie introduces you to the hosts of our new off road show called XOR – Jeremy Weckman and Eliza Leon. They’ll talk about their background and their plans for our new non-pavement show!

Plus Katie features the 1963 Chevy C10 named “Reborn” by owner/builder Mike Amborn. Mike saved it from the scrapyard for just $500 bucks, hence the name, and restored it into a gem! He replaced most of the sheet metal and dropped in an LS1 with a 4LE–60 trans making about 400 horsepower. He lifted the bed up 16 inches so the wood floor appears to be a Tonneau cover. Inside Mike wanted a modern touch but a classic look so it looks stock, but has all the creature comforts. But one of the most striking features of the truck is the retro GM color called “Tartan Turquoise” topped with a “Gloss White”. Check it all out this week on PowerNation!
