Finnegan's Garage Ep.59: I Bought The World's Longest Squarebody Ramp Truck and it Tried to Kill Me!

  • Published on:  1/7/2019
  • This is part 1 of an insane adventure that my friend David Newbern and I just went on. A super rare '89 GMC Sierra 3500 Crew Cab Ramp Truck hit the internet last Wednesday and I couldn't help myself; I had to have it. So we flew to Cincinnati on Friday and bought it, intending to road trip it home. The seller claimed it had just 35,000 miles on it and that it was ready to road trip. The mileage claim was correct. The road trip portion of their statement was total BS! Witness the joyous discovery and test drive of the ultimate hauler and then watch in horror as we nearly get destroyed by tractor trailers when the 454ci V8 shuts off as we reached the top of a two-lane bridge and had to roll backwards down the highway. Part 2 will be live next week and you'll see how we overcame the odds and extreme parts failure to make it back home with our new favorite tow pig!Thanks for watching.

    It was just like the Titanic, doomed from the very beginning.

    My son showed me this and I couldn't believe it. This was my uncle Bill Schmaltz's truck that he hauled his race car in. He raced for almost 50 years. I grew up in Osgood, Indiana and have many memories of going to the races growing up to watch him race. He died the year before last so just seeing it was very emotional for me. I'm glad someone got it that will take good care of it. :)

    Finnegan's Garage is roadkill for people who refuse to use crappy MTOD. And I'm pretty sure Finnegan knows that and that's precisely why he started this 👍

    Dude, nice truck. But what your friend did there, putting the retro seatbelt under his arm, is deadly. I've watched a girl die, after a compleatly survivable chrash, because of that very same thing. there was hardly a scratch on anyone in the car. But her abdomen was stiff from internal hemorrhaging. We where a truckload of search and rescue persoel 3 cars behind them, there was a nurse at the scene within a minute. She lost consiousness just before the abulance arrived, and even though they administer...

    @Bryan Vanderhoof are you still going in about numbers 2 weeks later?? Seriously dude? Get a fucking life. Bullet points with numbers are known as numbered Bukit points. At least they where 20 years ago when I did my degree in business studies. If you are a manufacturer of retro products then yes they are a copy of an older style HOWEVER if someone loves the 1080s, listens to the music, drives an 80s car wears 80s clothes then you can correctly call them retro. Now this is my opinion which I'm entitled...
