TMCP #516: Ask Rick – Is Removing the VIN Tag a Good Thing or Bad? Bonus Interview with Scott Janson from Woodward – Performance Variant Manager at General Motors
Happy September! Football is here and we can let the Fall celebrations begin. I once again got to catch up to Rick Schmidt from National Parts Depot to ask the burning questions that are on your mind to get his opinion on the burning questions we need to know most. Specifically, pulling VIN tags off of clunkers for a restoration, and Rick’s take on buying a 2023 HEMI car as an investment hedge! (To cut to the chase on the HEMI cars; Rick’s take is to skip the hype and pick up when in a few years. They’ll be plentiful and a better deal.)
This weeks interview is with Rick Love, Executive Vice President at Vintage Air, in San Antonio, Texas. Rick is a previous guest and great friend of the show episode 144. He is also not afraid to get his hands dirty and is very knowledgeable about classic cars and air conditioning. He is also very active with SEMA and he had a chance to tell me about a recent trip to Washington to help protect our off road racing and classic car rights.
