TMCP #229: SEMA 2014 Show #1 – Ron Francis Programmable Relay Boxes, 50 State Legal Flowmaster Cats, and Vintage Air Air Conditioning Systems Down Under!!

Listen in Stitcher


An inside peek at the Shelby American Museum. Their new facility houses all of this….and does production on all new Shelby’s as well! Amazing place. Special thanks to Gary Patterson (Shelby VP) for the access. We don’t have an interview from Shelby in this show, but the picture was too awesome not to use.

SEMA 2014 has come and gone, and it ended up being the biggest SEMA ever! As such we were able to grab a ton of one-on-one interview with old and new friends alike, so this will be the first show (of several) for you with terrific SEMA related content. The long and short of it is that you can see, meet, and discuss more aftermarket/racing/restoration related stuff in one week at SEMA than you likely can in a year anywhere else. Why? Because it’s all in one place, and all the cool cats come.

My big takeaway this year was that the quality of everything has risen to a new standard never seen before.  That’s a complete across the board statement as in my review the products, parts, tools, paint, restoration work, etc. was all over the top and only getting better. The passion for fast and cool cars has never been higher (no matter what the make/model), and I would guess that the SEMA attendance numbers will reflect that. Look for a blog with more details there, but for now sit back and enjoy the first show of interviews!

Interview #1 : Scott Bowers on Ron Francis Wiring and Their Amazing Award Winning Programmable Relay Box!

Interview #2 : Nate Shelton on Flowmaster’s 50-State Legal Universal Cats (California Residents, Rejoice!)

Interview #3 : Vintage Air’s own Rick Love on the State of Cold A/C Down Under (Aussies and New Zealanders Love the Cold A/C!)
