Keep your eyes peeled, as Roadkill’s banana-yellow, rear-engined “Mazdarati” project vehicle was stolen from its trailer over the weekend. The little Mazda REPU was last seen at the Blythe, California, Hampton Inn, where the zip-tie-fixing duo of David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan had just wrapped up shooting their latest episode.
The thief is obviously not a fan of the show, as the Olds-455-swapped truck is not only easily recognizable, but also very broken. Posts from Finnegan and Freiburger’s Instagram accounts displayed numerous instances of nitrous-induced mechanical mayhem leading up to its eventual trailering. Judging from the carnage, we’re guessing that the “Mazdarati” was still unsuccessful in its attempts to finally produce a 10-second quarter mile, as promised by the seller when it was acquired by the guys in Episode 45 of Roadkill.
