The Nitty Gritty:
Welcome to Episode 42 of the Pro-Touring.com Podcast!
For those new to the scene, the Pro-Touring.com podcast show is hosted by myself and Larry Callahan, the owner of Pro-Touring.com.
The show is sponsored by the fantastic hot rod wiring supply company, Ron Francis Wiring, and we’re very appreciative that they were our FIRST EVER show sponsor, and the first sponsor to re-sign for 2013!
John Parsons – II Much Fabrication
Every now and then we get the chance to do feature interviews with members of Pro-Touring.com, so Larry thought it might be fun to bring on longtime forum moderator John Parsons onto the show. John is the builder of one of the first true built-to-the-hilt Pro-Touring cars, his ’67 “II Much” Chevy II.
Believe it or not, the build of that car was John’s very first, and he learned many of his skills as a part of the process (even things like welding). As an engineer by trade be made sure to build something with a high level of fit, finish, and design – and pioneered a few of the common things that we see commonly in Pro-Touring builds now. Specifically, his line of vent tanks (for rear ends and fuel tanks) has become quite popular, so much so that John and his business partner started II Much Fabrication to keep up with the demand!
John is still and engineer by day, but during the evenings he builds one client-car per year and operated II Much Fabrication as well. It’s his plan to take his business and shop full time once he retires.
Thanks for the interview, John!
