TMCP #364: Ron Francis Wiring’s Super Cool Coyote Powered SVO Mustang; Pro-Touring Update with Larry Callahan

In this episode of TMCP our feature guest is the owner and president of Ron Francis Wiring, Scott Bowers. Scott is a  huge supporter of the show I have come to know him and look forward to every time we can get together. He and the staff at Ron Francis are car fanatics with a passion for electronics who enjoy putting their products on the road.

This year the Hot Rod Power Tour introduced the Sponsors Shootout for manufacturers to participate in featuring drag racing, auto crossing and the long haul road trip all without changing tires or swapping parts on the vehicles. Scott thought this would be a great time to showcase the new car they just put together. The Ron Francis Wiring team built a 1984 Mustang SVO and put a Coyote engine in it. After developing the engine harness for sale, there were many parts lying around the research lab and of course this was the perfect excuse to try it all out in a very cool event.

TMCP #358: Tony Angelo, Drifting Cars, Stunt Driving, and Hot Rod Garage

In this episode of TMCP our feature guest is Tony Angelo. I am sure you will  recognize Tony from shows like Hot Rod Garage or Roadkill formerly on YouTube, now on the new Motor Trend on Demand network, but have you heard the back story on how Tony came to be on those shows? My friend Mike Finnegan thought it would be great for Tony to come on the show and tell me all about it.

TMCP #350: Silver Sport Transmissions Talks Modern Overdrive Automatic Swaps for ’69 Chargers (and All Muscle Cars) – Ask Rick, Collectible R Model Shelby Mustangs and Whether to Restore a Basket Case

In this TMCP episode I spoke to Jeff Kauffman ‎and Bryan White (and former TMCP interviewee) from ‎Silver Sport Transmissions Maryville, Tennessee. Since I picked up the General Lee I have been debating options for overdrive transmissions to make life on the highway a little easier. Also overdrive transmissions have been around since before the 80’s so it is possible the Duke Boys could have swapped one in (if they had been allowed on highways outside of the county). I asked Jeff and Bryan to come on the show and answer some of my questions about transmission options. Want to hear something else cool? The old Cars for a Living podcast show that I used to host is one of the reasons Bryan left his ho-hum career with a major corporation to join the aftermarket…and Silver Sport was where he landed!

Also – as I mentioned in this interview – be sure to check out the new Baseball tee that I launched with my friends on Kickstarter. I think you’ll dig it – and please share it with your friends. The website is www.magictee.io and right now it’s available on Kickstarter for a HUGE discount. All purchases made through Kickstarter will help us get the product funded, manufactured, and out to market.
