Hi there!
Since this is the final episode from the SEMA 2013 show, I thought I’d include a picture taken on the last day. My dad (Dallas – original Chevelle owner) and I with the car in the final hours of SEMA.


This is our final podcast show featuring interviews recorded during the 2013 SEMA show.  All of this weeks interviewees have contributed parts or knowledge to building of the  Chevelle….and I am very thankful for that!

1. Detroit Speed and Engineering – I caught up with Stacy and Kyle Tucker at the Detroit Speed (DSE) booth and thanked her for the well engineered products installed in the Chevelle. Stacy and I discussed their new Mustang line, their entry for Kyle Busch’s Toyota “Dream Build Challenge – Rowdy Camry”, and how we can convince them to begin developing Mopar parts! Kyle and I discussed the 5 billion races he was running before, during, and after SEMA – including the Baja 1000!

2. Vintage Air – Vice President, Rick Love. I asked Rick about the compatibility that is being worked into future systems will have with the MSD Brainwave system. He told me this integration will help our custom vehicles take advantage current and future technologies to make them drive better and more economically.  They are also working on making their systems more plug and play that will just drop in and work right.

3. Ron Francis Wiring – Scott Bowers, President of Ron Francis Wiring. Scott, Larry Callahan (my partner in the Podcast) and I discussed the cool car in Scott’s both (i.e.m mine) and talked about how many of their systems were incorporated into the Chevelle. As always, Scott was  good sport….and has a nice one liner at the very end of the show!

4. RestoreATag – Shawn Mahaney, owner and chief restorer at Restore A Tag. Shawn did the restoration on my original 1964 Kansas license plate and discussed their high quality, hand finished, plate restorations. Shawn has done very high level show plates for many cars and even for Jay Leno. Currently they have around 85,000 plates on hand!
