AS MARK Arblaster and his mates journey towards the start of Hot Rod Drag Week, they are checking out plenty of cool stuff along the way.

Rather than truck down the interstate the whole way to Cordova, illinois – where registration for Drag Week 2017 kicks off on 10 September – the boys are taking in as much of the historic Route 66 as they can.

In this video, Arby stops in Santa Rosa, New Mexico to check out some classic barn finds, including a Ford single spinner, a 1957 Chev wagon and a Mercury Comet.
