TMCP #555: THE Pro-Touring Update with Larry Callahan – SEMA 2023 Preview – Pro-Touring Dinner – Ron Francis Goes To The OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational,
It’s once again is the quarterly Pro-Touring Update, Presented by Ron Francis Wiring, and starring Mr. Larry Callahan! Technically this is the 3rd quarter update, but with the schedules of events (and the possibility of something special in the first weekend of Oct) we needed to push it back a couple of weeks. I’m happy to say that the gamble was worth it! The focus of this update – as always – is to stay on the inside scoop of what is going on with Larry and The Pro-Touring community as well as getting the inside scoop on upcoming Pro-Touring (autocross) events for the end of 2023!
TMCP #492: Peter Bergman, Bergman Autocraft – Developing, Marketing, and Selling High Quality NICHE Parts!
Happy New Year! Long time listeners know that I like to start each year with a great passion to career business story. My goal for this episode was to identify a company manufacturing their own small volume “niche” parts and to discuss their process entirely, with lessons learned. This year I got to meet Peter Bergman, the owner and creator of Bergman Autocraft. Peter’s company develops niche parts (I bought one) vets and resells other components, and performs restorations. He has a niche business, completely by choice. He was the perfect candidate!
TMCP #409: Go Big or Go Home: Fast Freddies Hellcat Powered ’69 Road Runner Pro-Touring Beast; Larry Callahan with the SEMA Pro-Touring Update
This episode presented by Title Sponsor National Parts Depot! https://www.npdlink.com
This weeks show is with Fred Kappus, owner of Fast Freddies Rod Shop in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Fred’s shop is campaigning a stellar ’69 Road Runner called “Hellrunner” in the OPTIMA Ultimate Street Cars series, with it competing really well against the smaller (and more prevalent) Camaros and Mustangs. This is akin to an aircraft carrier competing against fighter jets…. but they’re doing it and doing it well and I wanted to learn exactly HOW!
This episode also supported by associate sponsors Wyotech https://www.wyotech.edu, Holley https://www.holley.com, and Aluma Trailers https://www.alumaklm.com
