Feature Segment

Chuck Hanson signs an autograph for a few young fans.

Chuck Hanson is a man that likely needs no introduction. He’s been involved in nearly every aspect of automotive media imaginable from print, to online, and to TV as the co-host the show Horsepower on Spike TV. Since 1996 he’s been the president of ACES, the American Chevelle Enthusiasts Society. This is a national organization made up of, you guessed it, Chevelle fans. Chuck runs every facet of the organization, writing and editing their bi-monthly magazine titled “Chevelle World,” manning the nightly Chevelle Tech Support line, and organizing the big annual Chevellabration event in Nashville. Chevellabration gathers Chevelle owners from all over the country and while it was originally an event for 64-72 model cars, the newer ’73-87 Chevelle’s and El Camino’s are allowed in now as well. The event caters to people with stock and modified cars, there is a literal “bench race” involving people pushing tool benches, and Detroit Speed hosts the autocross! If you’re a bow-tie A-Body fan, it’s heaven on Earth.

During our interview it was hard for me to listen to Chuck speak without hearing his booming baritone voice and picturing the guy that I had watched on TV for years. He’s just as nice off camera as he is on! ACES can be reached online at Thanks for the interview, Chuck! My ’64 and I will see you soon!

  1. I love the podcast and I would use the Comp Cams gift cert for my 1969 Mustang. I would love to try out their new oil and probably will need a roller rocker upgrade in the next year. I am a fan of your facebook page also.

  2. Great interview! I’ve known Chuck Hanson for 10+ years.

    Hope to see the host at CB12!
