In the summer of 2013 Mike Finnegan from Hot Rod Magazines Road Kill contacted us about building him a custom chassis and installing it in his 55 chevy. We normally do not do installs but decided to make an exception to see this amazing project come to life. Below are the videos from Road Kill featuring this car, soon we will be posting our employees photos from the original build. This inside look into how the Blasphemi got it's start is only available here at JMRP!
HOT ROD Magazines David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan hit the road on a 1,000-mile trip to Lincoln City, Oregon to have the crew at Jim Meyer Racing install a custom built chassis that turns the '55 into a wicked looking hot rod in less then a day!
In Episode 8 of Roadkill we introduced you to the greatest engine swap project ever—a Hemi into a 1955 Chevy Bel Air. Nearly two years later, we finally get Mike Finnegan's Mopar-powered Tri-Five on the road, but not without a few problems along the way.
On this episode of Roadkill, it's 2,600 miles, 530 cubic inches, 700 horsepower, six speeds, 17 mpg, and two fun visits with some friends from TV.
On this episode of Hot Rod Garage Presented by Lincoln Tech, the crew tunes the FAST XFI 2.0 electronic fuel injection system for wide-open throttle performance, lowers the front suspension, adds a pair of Viking adjustable dampers, and installs a Hurst Roll Control line lock for better burnouts.
On the final day of 2014 SEMA Week HRMS brought together this mix of vehicles for a grudge race. See Mike Finnegan's Blasphemi in action!
