Video : Garage419 races Dodge Challenger SRT-8 against planes and trains

Garage419, an Internet-based car show that is entering the media world, very fast. Hosted by Matt Farah, the guys over at Garage419 do a fair bit of studio debates, interviews, karting competition, and great car reviews. What makes them so distinctive from any American car show, is that they speak their mind, even if a car is basically terrible. Much like an American version of BBC's world famous Top Gear. The Garage419 staff are trying their best improving the show from each episode start.

Well, last Thursday's episode was epic. The challenge was to make an "epic race" just like Top Gear, Garage419 style. So instead of using an Aston Martin DB9, Matt Farah was driving the Dodge Challenger SRT-8 (on a single tank of gas), and racing his colleagues from New York City to Washington D.C. J.F Musial took the plane, and Tom Albrecht took Amtrak rail. So the race was set. Each member used Google’s Latitude service to track each other’s progress.

Which is the quickest way from New York to Washington? Well, I'm not going to spoil the end. So, please watch and ENJOY!
