We say kinda because while Finnegan is the primary host for <em>Hot Rod Garage</em>, Freiburger plays guest host and the new show starts off by wrenching on the <em>Roadkill</em> Draguar project car.<br /><br />What's the Draguar? It's a 1974 <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/jaguar/">Jaguar</a> XJ12 that's about to be force-fed a 383-cubic-inch <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/chevrolet/">Chevrolet</a> long-block engine with tidbits like Holley carbs, a Weiand 6-71 Roots blower and a "custom WillBlow transmission," all good for about 700 horsepower. After that Finnegan gets into swapping parts on his wife's El Camino and some TIG welding lessons.<br /><br />You can check out the first episode <a href="/2014/05/23/hot-rod-garage-series-premieres-700hp-jaguar-xj-video/#continued">below</a>. And in case you're worried, no, <em>Roadkill</em> isn't going away.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/05/23/hot-rod-garage-series-premieres-700hp-jaguar-xj-video/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Hot Rod Garage series premieres with 700-hp small-block Jaguar XJ</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/05/23/hot-rod-garage-series-premieres-700hp-jaguar-xj-video/">Hot Rod Garage series premieres with 700-hp small-block Jaguar XJ</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Fri, 23 May 2014 20:00:00 EST.
