#425 Larry Callahan – Twenty Years of Pro-Touring.com and Helping Make Old Cars Go Very Fast!

This week is a very special show marking a huge milestone for the Pro-Touring.com web site. It has been twenty years, this March, since Larry created the first launch the infamous site. It pre-dates nearly all of social media (Instagram, YouTube, Facebook) and even most forums! Thanks to Larry, many thousand people have visited to gain knowledge regarding go-fast-old-cars and share friendships over racing and “G’s”. Events and businesses have formed ENTIRELY around the Pro-Touring movement and the trend of Pro-Touring cars has become as mainstream as apple pie and kids taking selfies. I believe that Larry Callahan deserves the bulk of the credit for tossing gasoline on a match – and for fostering a place to take this industry from nothing to SOMETHING! This interview was a look book at how it all began.

Yes, Holley is the official EFI source for The MuscleCar Place Network! If that’s not enough, they have just announced that with the help of Prestige Motorsports, Dart, and TorqStorm, they’ve concocted a 427 cubic inch, twin-supercharged combo that is capable of sending absurd levels of good old-fashioned V8 horsepower to the pavement! The parts alone are over $20K – and all you need to do to have a shot at it is to enter the contest! Here’s the link. Go get it! https://bit.ly/KAFS-Holley-LS-Sweepstakes.

You can ALSO set up a profile for your ride in the Holley My Garage section on their website. It’s kinda like Facebook…but from your car’s perspective! Using our link helps us out BIG time! https://bit.ly/KAFS-Holley-MyGarage

#424 Josh Oliver and Tony Huntimer; Showcasing The Rise and Life of Big Red – The World’s Most Famous ’69 Camaro

This weeks guests are Josh Oliver and Tony Huntimer from “Team Big Red Camaro”, possibly the world’s most famous ’69 Camaro and a car and driver combination that has somehow become an institution in it’s own right. This interview is the story of how a car and driver – that aren’t interested in racing professionally – are 30 years into being the biggest baddest paradigm changing racing team ever!

#423 Kate Licitra, Vet Speed Racing, Racing ‘Vettes to Help Our Vets!! – Ask Rick, Does Win on Sunday Sell on Monday Still Work?

This weeks guest is Kate Licitra, the founder and President of Vet Speed Racing, a 501c3 non profit group that uses Corvettes and racing to help alleviate PTSD. After her former military husband started to show symptoms of traumatic brain injury and Post traumatic stress disorder she knew that she had to do something. After they sold a house, she was able to purchased a Corvette as a bonus for a little track day fun, she noticed his illness started to ease a little. The release that came with the speed and “racing therapy” really helped and she knew she was on to something that she had to share with other vets.

#422 Jeff Allison: Building an AWD 1968 C-20 For YouTube; Pro-Touring Update – Street Metal Concepts on what it’s REALLY like to Build a SEMA Car! Does It Again! This Time On YouTube with a Truck!

Take the Holley Survey and help us win you better prizes! http://bit.ly/TMCP_Podcast_Survey

TMCP: This weeks interview is with long time friend, supporter of the show, and builder of my Chevelle, Jeff Allison. He has launched a brand new project just for his YouTube Channel – the 2020 C-20. With this project he’ll put a ’68 C-20 GMC Truck atop a 2006 GMC Yukon XL DENALI AWD chassis and showcase the entire build on video! You can find Jeff’s video channel at YouTube.com Project Car TV.

Now…with all of that said, a good part of this interview delved into the REASON to have a YouTube channel as a shop owner, period. Realistically…most people that start YouTube channels are hoping to become a big YouTube star, not to use it as a marketing tool for their business.  In the case of Jeff….it’s marketing now….but perhaps may convert to stardom later. Listen in for the discussion including the costs in time, money, and effort. Shop owners – listen to this one closely!

#421 Derek Thomas, Rail & Road Auctions, Sell Your 80’s, 90s, and 08’s Muscle at Auction!

Take our survey for Holley…so we can find great giveaways for you! http://bit.ly/TMCP_Podcast_Survey

This weeks interview is  with long time listener Derek Thomas, owner and operator of Rail & Road Auctions. Derek has been in the auction business for many years selling model trains and actual train related items, sometimes at world record sales levels. He also has a passion for the cars he grew up with in the 80’s and 90’s and believes the time is right for these vehicles to start gaining value.

To capture the soon to be booming 80’s market, Derek decided to leverage his experience and bring a better opportunity to auction these vehicles. With his experience in the business Derek is able to utilize the same platform as the big players and offer those services to a lower dollar market. Since he is a MuscleCar Place fan, he decided it would be great to announce the service to our listeners with a discount of 25% off listing fee for your first vehicle listed and a 50% discount on your second in that auction!

If you would like to learn more about Rail & Road Auctions, and maybe take advantage of The Muscle Car Place exclusive discount, you can find the website at RaRauctions.com.
